3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
7.5%ABV. American IPA.
Clean. Light. Floral citrus nose.
Sweet. Malty. Heavy palate. Alcoholic.
Bitter all the way to end. Cuts bitter and ends that way.
Nice and full enough of the herbaceously bitter hops to be a proper American IPA. Not much else in the way of aroma to make it interesting.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
64oz growler from Superstar Huntington pours a murky orange with some frothy white head. Nose has orange and grapefruit peel, some soap, mild pine, a little malt, a little fruit. Flavor is heavy with citrus bitterness, some mild fruit to round things out, some more tannic grist character, quite a bit of soap. A little grating on the finish which distracts.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught in brooklyn. Hazy murky gold/amber. Pine sap and muted tropical stuff on the nose, some dank spice. Taste gives nice guava and pine resin, some light spice, bit of booziness, some sweeter malts that get a bit sticky. Spice and rough bitter pine needles to finish. Tasty stuff.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
@ The Ginger Man à Manhattan. En fût. Une bière dorée foncée avec une mousse blanche. Un nez de houblon américain et de malt blond. Une bouche intense de houblon avec une amertume marquée. La texture est parfaite pour soutenir ces houblons.

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.

Draft at top hops New York. Pours yellow with a half inch of white foam. Leaves a fair amount of lacing. Not a ton on the hops. Lovely grapefruit notes on the tongue. Finishes clean. Nice!
