Had this one bottled in Glens Falls, New York. Hazy, medium yellow pour with some mild citrusy hoppiness in the nose, and a nice balanced flavor of spicy hops, grapefruit and bready sweetness. Very good!

The low reviews seem to be from this being rated as an American IPA when it is definitely an English IPA. Pours Dark copper with a thin white head. Aroma is dominated by malt: caramel and some butterscotch. The flavor is also very malt driven. Caramel, butterscotch, and it finishes off with an earthy, bitter bite. A decent English IPA. Quite drinkable, but definitely a shock if you want an aggressive hop-forward American IPA.

Bottle. Pours a golden amber with a thin white head. Light pine and citrus notes. Thin to medium bodied with flavors of honey, citrus and pine. Ends a little bit sweet, but with a nice grapefruit bitterness.

Eructoblaster (3806) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
On tap at Timberwolf Pub (Schroon Lake, NY). Limpid, amber body with an average off-white frothy head. Fair malty/hoppy aroma with weirs leather hints. Taste is slightly dominated by hoppy flavors. It also carries malty, woody, and grainy notes. Ends with a decent bitter/woody finish. Drinkable.

Tap at Johnny Rockets in Queensbury on my Topper trip to Vermont. Man this is not really good at all tasted like dish soap. Very malty and off balance. Would never try this again if I had a gun to my head. Bluhhhh

At the brewpub for quick lunch stop. pours orange with nose of piney yet slightly stale hops. Tastes of pine, grapefruit, honey, florals, light caramel, and earth. standard brewpub ipa but well done enough to get by

On Tap in Albany. Pours amber with white head and some carbonation. Body is full and crisp. Taste and aroma is of bready malt, buckwheat, earthy hops and some fruity esters. Finish is long and earthy. Nothing special IPA.

PhatB420 (837) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 1, 2013
12oz into a 16.9oz stemmed belgian. Pours a sloppy brown, muddeled with tree bark, tan hues and bulky twigs. Aroma is musky pine hops, harvest soil, dry dirt, some coca beans, and faint citrus. Taste is dirty hops that are not yet ready to be added to a brew, but sprn in their own right. Heavy caramel flare, lemon, pine sap and cones, and hops round out the rest. Chewy mouthfeel, sweet at times, then somewhat bitter in the end. An ok brew. 5.9 fits it well.

Bready and malty aroma with a flavor that follows. Almost no hop aroma or flavor. Good beer but not as an ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
