Long line at Buffalo Beer Fest for this. Amber hue capped by off white head with good retention. Nose is of citrus and pine. Taste follows with addition of a caramel malt body. Has a bit of chalk and soap too. It would be a good beer if they could figure that out.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours lightly hazy orange with a small white head. Smells lightly hopped and lightly malty, like a pale ale. Taste is just a little bitter, otherwise not very impressive. Medium-bodied with a wet texture and soft mouth-carbonation, Erie Brewing Misery Bay IPA finishes with a subtle bitterness.

3.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Beer of the month club. Pours orange/amber color with minimal head. Great nose - floral , citrus and pine. Taste is good, but pretty standard...some piney hops, lemon. A touch of bitterness but pretty mild vs other IPAs. Nothing special, but good.

Bottle from beer club. Tried it with Railbender, and this one has more character. It’s a solid IPA, decent dose of hop to it, but also fairly predictable.

Bottle - via Ale in the Mail. Light copper color, clear. Clean, somewhat hoppy aroma. Really good. Very hoppy though with some maltiness too.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A amber body with an off white head that had nice retention and lace. Aroma had a nice Carmel malt presence. A nice hop profile. Mostly grapefruit but there was a generic bitterness to it. Flavor was initially sweet. Hops were nice and balanced. There was more bitterness than the aroma indicated. Finish was moderately dry.

12oz bottle. Poured a pretty clear golden color. Some light spicy grains, wheat notes, light yeast. Flavor was grains, sweet malts. Not too much in terms of hops, some earthy notes.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very malty, nutty, with a hint of sweet caramel. The hops are really absent from the flavor and the finish. Perhaps I got a mislabeled bottle.

Copper-colored pour with an aroma of grapefruit, resin, pine, and hops. Decent malt balance with caramel, grapefruit, and pine with a quick bitter hop ending.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Very little hops and lots of dryness. I’ll pass on the next one.
