2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ home via trade with barak316. Thanks Bill! Never heard of this brewery but it looks interesting. Pours a muddy orangish brown appearance with a tan head. Appears to be unfiltered. Caramel, toasty malty, a touch nutty, piney, spicy hoppy, light chocolate aroma. A bit tangy, grapefruit citrusy, toasty malty, caramel, slightly herbal flavor. Somewhat decent but also somewhat not pleasant.

Draft sample at Beoir Go Leoir. Fruity apricot aroma. Cloudy honey gold with a large creamy off-white head. Sweet fruity caramel malt and light grassy-fruity hops flavor. Light body, soft carbonation. Very easy drinker.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a pretty opaque, murky-looking amber with a sizable off-white head that hangs around quite a while. Intense, refreshingly hoppy nose with lots of pine needles and bright citrus, and a touch of chocolate malt notes. Not a whole lot of sweetness, at least compared to the massive bitterness. Medium bodied, fairly active, with a huge drying bitterness on the end. I tried this quite a while back when Greenbush had just begun distributing kegs, and while it still isn’t much to look at, I feel like they’ve really nailed down the hop profile aromatically, taste-wise, and on the palate to where this is an impressive brew at this point.

Out of bottle pour is a orange, cloudy amber. Head is strong initially but resides quickly. Aroma is a nice, subtle, citrus, hoppy aroma. Taste is Hoppy, grassy, bitter, and malty. Overall a pretty good IPA

On tap at Greenbush. Very murky with a small head. Smells of lemon grass and sweet malt. The taste is well balanced. Sweet malt with that tangy lemon grass note that was in the nose.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Pours a cloudy amber. Big off white head. Very nice retention. Big grassy aroma. Favor is pur bitter. Big bitter mouthfeel. Nothing hidden about this beer. Its pure in your face bitter. With all the bitter this isn’t a beginner beer, but for those that appreciate this is a very nice and refreshing IPA. Would recommend and will definitely buy again.
