Pours a beautiful orange/amber color with a nice thick head. Tight lacing. Nose is heavy citrus and assertively hopped. Nice texture on the tongue, but flavor is a bit thin. This was a bottle on a hotel bar, so it may not have been fresh, would like to try on tap...

Pours a hazy orange with little head and not much lacing. Aroma of citrus hops and nutty malts. Taste was citrus and piney and had a pretty good amount of bitter. Medium body and pretty bitter from start to finish, which was good. Pretty basic IPA, nothing fancy, but drinkable and enjoyable.

Hyped up by my brother-in-law, who lives in Rochester. Pours yellow/orange, clear, with medium head. Hoppy nose. Hops up front with some soapy notes and not much malt to speak of. Bitter finish. Comparable to 60 minute IPA.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours amber with a bit of a light tan ring and excellent clarity. No lace. Smells of he dankness, weed, resin, pine and some hints of bitter citrus. Flavor follows with a strong bittered malt profile and nice piny hops in the midpoint with a moderate length bitterness and malt. Medium bodied with moderate carb and hints of a slick finish. Decent beer, it reminds me a of a local IPA that tastes like strait weed with a strong malt backbone.

Hop aroma is strong- as it should be. Nice color and clarity but not much head. Towards the end of the glass the the hops aroma dies off a bit but flavor held on.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Location: Sampled at Tap NY, 4/27/13
Aroma: The nose is nice and hoppy, with some tropical fruit, grapefruit, and pine/resin
Appearance: Pours a mostly clear copper-orange color with an off-white head
Flavor: The taste is much the same, with a big hoppy flavor and some malt backing
Palate: The body is medium, it has a nice, clean mouthfeel, and a dry carbonation
This one was one of my favorite samplings of the day, and CB was one of the more memorable brewers. A really nice example of an IPA.

A: Golden Straw/Amber Hue, Passes Most Light, White Head, Decent Lacing
S: Grainy, Mild Resin, Mild Malts

Overall, an average IPA with a really harsh bitterness that is somewhat detracting from the taste.
