4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Location: Growler from Superstar Beverage - Huntington, 9/11/14
Aroma: The nose is resin hops dominant, with plenty of tropical fruit, quite hoppy and very clean
Appearance: It pours a clear golden-orange color with a sheeting white head and nice lacework
Flavor: The flavor is lightly sweet/fruity, but leans much more toward the hop bitter side
Palate: The body is medium, it has a smooth feel, soft carbonation, and a long, dry finish
I thought this was an excellent IPA. It is quite dry and has a really enjoyable flavor. I am quite impressed by this one. It could be quite dangerous at over 7%. This is a very west cost style beer from a very east coast brewery.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Local NY beer on tap at The Ginger Man. Accesible soft bitterness IPA, with hints of wheat bread and sweet malts. Aroma was good but went away really quick, thin white lace, good carbonation. Refreshing but not as astringent as it could be.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Half growler at GrandCru beer and cheese. A solid showing for another NY brewery that I had not heard of. Piney nose and body. Stacatto hop bite then warming tones of hop infused grassiness. That little bottle went fast. Lots of nice lacing left behind.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Sampled at the brewpub - Nice hoppy nose, piney and citrus. Sweet, bready malts with some caramel. Finishes dry and with a bit too much astringency. But very fresh and resinous hops.
