Our house IPA. A classic west coast IPA hopped with a lot of northwest hops. The beer is then again dry hopped with cascade whole hops in the fermenter at over a pound per barrel. The dry hopping produces a sharp, crisp, citrus aroma for any true hop lovers beer.

A great pale in the style of a good west coast pale ale. Just the right hoppiness. Hopheads will like! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Great Adirondack Brewery in Lake Placid, N.Y., on June 28, 2012. Draft into pint glass. One finger of head when I got it. Pale, see through color. White frothy lacing with good retention. Smelled lemon citrus hops. Wet cascade lime. Pine and soapy. Tasted similar to the smell with more bitterness. Lemon, cascade, wet, icy, pine. Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Smooth, bitter finish. Somewhat refreshing. This beer had its moments but wasn’t too spectacular overall.

Included as part of a sampler at the restaurant. Unfortunately I do not remember the particulars on any of the beers I had tasted though they were all pretty good overall. Definitely plan to be back to retry some of these.
