3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
In short: A clean tasty pale IPA with typical citrusy, piney and grassy hops. Very good.
How: Tap at Tap-NY 2012
The look: Clear golden-blond body, medium off-white head with good rating
In long: Nose is very citrusy (fresh grapefruits upfront but also other fresh citrus fruits) and green pine needles. Taste has a typical solid blond IPA malt backbone, clean and crisp with slightly toasted honeyed cereals. Well malted but still balanced towards the hops which feel more grassy in mouth on top of their citrusy and piney character noticeable in the aroma. Grassy spiciness in the after-taste. Good beer. And for once people when people were talking about the outrage at a beer festival it didn,t ‘necessarily’ involves me and my lack of pants.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2011 Location: Draft at Mugs Ale House, 7/30/11
Aroma: The nose is fairly hoppy, with lots of citrus, pine, and grassy notes to it
Appearance: It pours a clearish amber-red color with a fairly small off-white head
Flavor: The taste is fairly hoppy as well, light malty sweetness, heavier hoppy presence
Palate: The body is medium (plus), average carbonation, slightly creamy, with a dryish finish
It is always good to try another small brewery, which I assume this is, as I can’t recall trying anything from them previously. Anyway, this was a solid IPA for sure, a nice effort at the style, with a crisp and dry feel to it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at Mugs Ale House. Pours a cloudy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of sweet malt, lots of sweet fruits and grapefruit. Flavor of lots of malt, apple skins, bitter resiny hops in the finish. At first I wasn’t digging it, but it warmed up to me a bit. Good IPA, although it isn’t as hoppy as I generally prefer.
