3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Randolph Beer, Soho New York. Hoppy aroma of wet grass, pine. Slightly cloying flavor that initially disrupted my enjoyment of the beer. A little harder to enjoy than I'd like. Nice hop finish once you get past the pucker.

On draft. Brewery lists ABV at 9.5%. Aroma of chocolate and fruit. Surprisingly pale. Flavors of chocolate, faint cherry, peach, apricot. Smooth finish. Fine, fine beer. A little more complexity and it?d be a stat.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
On tap last night at George Keeley’s, Upper West Side, NYC. This brew is the best East Coast interpretation of the West Coast double IPA. In fact, it may have even outdone many of those. The taste reminds me of Pliny the Elder. A bouquet of citrus envelopes the nose with a well done, bitter hoppiness on the tongue. Really a tasty, unexpected treat.
