3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Reviewed from notes.
Pours a moderate golden color. Slightly dark with a white head and a bit of lacing. Nose is some citrus hops with some orange and grapefruit rind. Pretty good. The taste is a bit more malty without too much of a hop presence, although there is some light citrus there. Light to medium body with slight bitterness. Drinkability is pretty good as this doesnít stray too far in any one direction, but this is also what keeps the flavor a bit plain.
Serving type: on-tap

I have been drinking this beer for a few years now and it has only gotten better, it is a great example of an IPA done right. Lots of Pine, resin, grapefruit, citrus. But even with all of these hops you still get a nice malt backbone. If you like this then look for itís bigger brother, Hopocratic.

Approximately 2 ounce sample at the Brewery tasting room in Bay Shore, New York. The pour is a slightly hazy orange golden. The aroma is dry grassy resin, with light honey and some nice pine all balanced against caramel malt. Fresh nose. The taste follows the nose, nice fresh hops (grass, resin, light honey, pine) balanced against a clean caramel toast malt. The palate is medium bodied, clean dry finish. Of the beers I sampled here, I liked this and the Saison the best.

Tap - Hazy golden pour with thin white head. Massive pine and sticky caramel malts. Some old shoe leather at the end, but still has a really nice hop profile and an expert graininess. Soft bodied and freshtastic.
