Draft at Pony Bar HK during the Hudson Valley NY tap takeover event. Not as horrible as the Super kitty imperial version, but still a very malt-focused ipa. Lots of caramel malt character dominating any semblance of hop profile there might have been. Some slick pine resin in the finish.

Keg. Pours hazy copper with a fluffy off-white head that lasts and laces. Smells of apple cider and piney, citrusy hops. Drinks smoothly with mild lingering hop bitterness. Medium bodied. Good effervescence. Tastes of wood, wet leaves, and piney hops. Solid, but weirdly balanced for an IPA.

Pours a light amber. Has a strong malt and light hop aroma like an amber ale. A nice wheat and citrus/floral hops taste with a light bitter after taste that isnt overpowering.

Typical east coast ipa, citrus hops, slight herbs, balanced malt, not bad but not exciting.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle to pint (thanks tgncc). Looks decent; malty though. A somewhat cloudy amberish brown with ample off-white head. Smells malty first and hoppy second. Tastes like it smells with an average mouthfeel. Okay beer, but an underwhelming example of the style.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
The beer poured great with a nice copper color, an off white mild head and mild lacing on the glass. The beer smells decent with a grapefruit scent up front blended with toffee malts and a mild orange finish. The beer tasted decent with a nice orange, lemony blended and a caramel malt finish. The mouthfeel was average while the beer was well carbonated but the taste was funky, almost skunky. Overall, the beer was decent but just had some weird combinations that I dont think mixed well together.
