Growler - a nicely dry and potently bitter IPA - earthy, woody aroma - dry, biscuity flavor, with crisp, citrusy, pine-like hoppiness, especially through the super-dry finish - a bit grassy and peppery through the finish - quite tasty.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Location: Sampled at the NY Brewfest on Governor’s Island, 6/19/10
Aroma: Fairly solid pine front hop nose, some citrus notes, and some earth
Appearance: The pour is an amber color with an off-white head
Flavor: This beer’s flavor leans toward the bitter side with just a bit of sweetness for balance
Palate: The body is medium, with a long, lingering sticky-resin finish
I liked this beer a lot. A very solid IPA from another small brewery that I got to try for the first time at Brewfest. The state of NY seems to be pretty well represented with these solid little breweries that can brew a pretty solid beer.
