Got some of this on growler tap at Premier in Buffalo, i think this is awesome that this brewery is here in Buffalo, NY. Off the jump, this beer smells amazing, lots of fruit, lemon zest and grapefruit notes. It poors a light golden yellow, and has a nice medium palate with a nice bitterness to it. Taste is nice with some good fruit notes, light to medium bitterness and sweet. Overall this is a nice ipa and a good beer alltogether. Just found out about this brewery and i like it already, good stuff!

Hopefully this is the correct name of the beer. I got the title from Untappd. It was listed as "Mosaic IPA" at Blue Monk and doesn’t really seem to have a title on the CBW blog. On cask at Blue Monk. Pours a nice dark yellow hazy color. Really smooth from the cask. Hoppy, citrusy, a little bit flowery. All over the place in a good way. I love the way they make their IPAs. Yet another hit.

Growler fill from the brewery. This is just a fantastic IPA, and probably my favorite CBW beer to date. Has a bit of funk to it, but tons of citrus and a little bit of floral feel as well. Very balanced and drinkable for the style.

Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13
Aroma: This one has a mostly citrus hop aroma, some grapefruit, orange, lemon, etc
Appearance: It pours a cloudy golden orange color with a white head and medium lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, lots of citrus, some light sweetness, and plenty of hop

These guys make a quite tasty IPA. You really can’t go wrong with this one. I found it to be a drinkable and enjoyable example of the style.
