Tap at Tonys place. An English style IPA. Very balanced indeed. Hops aroma and taste are more floral than citrusy. Malt caramel base, nice beer.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
64oz growler, $7.99 at Brew York UWS. Clear honey amber with a 1 1/2 finger creamy off-white head, fading to a thick ring and film after a minute or so, but does rouse a little. Hops are mainly spicy with a bit of herbal grassy and woody notes (reminds me of Hallertauer), a bit grainy and bready malt. Flavor adds just a little light orange hops, but they’re mainly as they were in the aroma. Minimal sweetness, the finish is dry, bitterness peaking at a 4-5. Burps with some nice dry hopped flavor. Creamy medium body with low smooth carbonation. Not finding any faults, but kinda boring to me. Also, not too huge on English IPAs

In seeking the balance - as stated in the brewers’ blurb - this IPA doesn’t seem to have much in the way of distinctiveness. Had on draft, it was just the right color, a pale gold; and had just the right aroma (a fresh grassiness IMO). The mouthfeel was pleasant without singularity. The result is a beer that went well with the food served but didn’t get in the way of the various food flavors. If you like middle of the road, this IPA is it.

Draft. Hazy gold with thick head. Aroma is hops, flavor is caramel, hoppy but balanced. Great beer.

The beer pours a medium orange with a white head. The head is nice and soapy, a nice cover at the end and good clingy lacing.
The aroma is super light citrus hops mixture that doeesn’t really bring a whole lot to the plate.
The taste is also super light citrus to start. The middle and end are both pretty dead but at the end, almost two seconds later you get hit with a huge infusion of bitter hops. Its a nice delayed reaction.

Had at Stephens green. Pour is a deep orange with little to no head. Aroma is very sweet hops with hints of strawberry. Flavor is a smooth hop that doesn’t over power. Light on the palate.

What a sweet name for a beer. This poured a slightly hazy amber color with an off-white head. Aroma was very hoppy with some apricot and floral notes. Taste is also very hoppy, even for an IPA. Balance is pretty good, but maybe even a little too hoppy. Apricot, citrus, and floral notes with some resin also present. Overall a very good IPA, quite drinkable.
