An American IPA.Agressive use of fruity American hops is what this beer is all about. An intense hop bitterness, followed by a balancing hop flavor and full hop aroma. Notes of citrus and grapefruit may be detected.. This is our hoppiest beer.

On draft. No aroma that I can find. Slightly cloudy amber color. No lacing. Flavor is tart orange. Malts are toasty caramel. Beer finishes chewy. Good argument for IPAs being broken into two styles as this is a strong East Coast IPA.

Pours cloudy golden with moderate white top. Aroma is floral and citrus hops. Taste is a bold up front floral and citrus hop bitterness with bready malts to help ease you out.

Definitely a fruitier IPA. Rather creamy for a finish. Easily my favorite from this brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This one poured a semi cloudy lighter orange color with an off white head. Aroma was of caramel malt, light dirt and herbal hops. Flavor was lightly fruity and bitter, a bit dirty and herbally. Drinkable but not good.

On tap at Dinosaur BBQ. Pours clear orangish amber with small white head. Aromas of caramel malts, grapefruit, and grassy hops. Flavors of sweet caramel malts, some hop bitterness, little bread, grapefruit, and touch of orange. Lacking bitterness and balance. Average IPA.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 9, 2012
Tap at the Bohemian Hall: Pours amber with an off white head that has okay retention. Clean C-hop aroma. Piny, citrusy and some crystal malt huskiness. Light body. Dry and husky flavor. Lots of crystal malt. As it warms it gets more husky and slightly astringent.

Keg @ Alewife, Queens. Pours deep amber with a small white head. The nose is light honeyed bread, some mild fresh citrus, grass. The taste is nicely balanced. Honey short bread, nice malt base with hints of yellow apple. There’s an assertive bitter hop presence in the finish. Light citrus and dried grass. Smooth, easy to drink. Overall, an accomplished, balanced IPA.
