on tap Brooklyn Public House - Bright warm gold color with crisp white head. Great strongish hoppy aroma - piney and green grass like. Hops are the predominant flavor - both fresh green, chewy, resiny hops but also a great well balanced bitterness. Clean malt flavors keep it in check. Love this IPA - wish we could get it in Philly. Hate the phrase "sessional IPA" in the description though. To me, "session" should be 4.5% and under.

Growler courtesy of nimbleprop, thank you! Poured a golden, clear color with a wispy head. Aroma was notes of light hops, grassy notes. Flavor was a real hoppy, fresh tasting beer. Pretty good, enjoyed the hop in this one.

Really enjoyed this brew at Draught 55. Pours orange and nose is quite hoppy. Tastes of tangerines, lemongrass, piney, some caramel, yeasty, and light malting. Pretty tasty indeed quite good.

Orangy color with medium white head. Nice aroma of fresh citrus and grassy hops. Medium-light body. Flavor is moderately bitter, grapefruit, herbal, bit of spice. Not complex or anything but very nice and drinkable with good flavors.

jredmond (5259) - Manhattan, New York, USA - FEB 23, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 12, 2013 Draft at alewife with Andrew and Brendan. Pours a hazy amber body with white lacing. Aroma is faint hops and lots of bitter grapefruit. Mouthfeel is medium with notes of fresh pine, light malt, light soap and some flowers. Bitterness in the finish. Iím not sure why, because this doesnít fit the typical profile of IPAs I like, but this one is balanced just right.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - AUG 10, 2013
Pouring at BCTC. Pours a just clear gold with a large white head. Big and musky on the nose, dusty citrus with lots of yeasty phenolics. Medium bodied, but thins out a touch. Piney bitterness over caramel sweetness. Long smooth quinine and grapefruit. Nicely balanced.

tap at the Pony - the nose is great. succulent fruit, citrus and flower petals. Sweet body and caramel with delicate piney hops into a mildly bitter finish and some lingering astringency. Very well balanced.
