strong hop aroma. prominent, but not overly aggressive bitterness. Although, alcohol is prominent. Despite the great description, nothing particularly unique about this IPA.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A bland and unimpressive IPA. Cascade heavy, light toffee and caramel malts with toasted breads. Light floral and tons of citrus. Nothing is really in balance and alot of the profile seems out of sync

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
22 ounce bottle into tulip glass, best before 11/25/2015. Pours slightly hazy orange/copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pear, pineapple, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of citrus/pine hops, fruity yeast, and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pear, pineapple, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/citrus rind bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pear, pineapple, pine, caramel, toasted bread, herbal, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness, compelxity, and balance of citrus/pine hops, fruity yeast, and dark/bready malt flavors; with a nice malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky/resinous, and lightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a slight warmth lingering after the finish. Overall this is a very nice English IPA style. All around good robustness, complexity, and balance of citrus/pine hops, fruity yeast, and dark/bready malt flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Tap at K Pacha, Long Island. Pours very dark amber color, off white head. Aroma is light citrus, some orange, tangerine, malty. Flavor is funky. It has a lot of like caramel, toffee or some sort of sweet malt. Almost like a peat or spelt note. Slight grapefruit note. Pretty bitter finish. So basically it has hop bitterness without much hop Aroma. Not too great.
