3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
This tasted very very similar to the stone IPA. Aroma was a nice crisp hoppy citrus. Taste was similar, but with more bitterness than expected...maybe to much for it to be balanced. This beer also seemed to have some floral honey and starchiness in the flavor. Very drinkable and light bodied. Pretty good...but not great.

On tap at Mr Goodbars in Buffalo. I had almost given up hope of finding a good IPA in the region until I tried this one. What a fantastic surprise. On the more bitter end of the IPA continuum, but that tends to be my preference.

Almost orange color, great citrusy hop flavor, maybe even slight orange, malty, great tasting IPA

Found this delightful. Would really, really like to try again as I seem to have an ever changing pallet that allows me to love a hop variety one day and possibly not as much the following week. This was just so well balanced and with hops way forward, but not aggressively so. Well done. Thanks to Shadey.

Bottle. Golden with light head. Although hoppy it does not fell bitter. Full but stil mild. A touch of citrus or lime.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle, via rudolf. Copper colored body with a small off-white head that fades to a thin covering. Citric hop aroma with a lightly sweet malt background. Pretty low level of hoppiness in the flavor for an IPA, with a lightly bitter finish. Malt background is fairly subtle as well. Light to medium bodied with a slightly creamy mouthfeel. Moderate carbonation composed of fine bubbles. Overall, a decent beer, very easy drinking and not overly aggressive.

I liked this IPA, although it was much darker than the usual IPA. My freind thought the bottle was mislabeled, as it was more like a good Scottish Ale than an IPA. Very hoppy, nice flawerful mix, no bitter aftertaste. Very Good indeed!

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle Pours a hazy orange, light amber. Nice fluffy off white head and blocky lacing. Aroma is very much citrusy, orange peels. Flavor is not so fruity, but mainstream moderatley hoppy. Nicely ballanced and tasty. Mild carbonation and a nice dry bitterness at the end, but not overpowering. Very tasty IPA. Thanks to Shady for this one

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: SEP 22, 2006 Bottle. Pours amber with small white head. Flavors of sweet caramel, grassy hops, and citrus. Finish is bitter and slightly dry, with some astringincy and soapiness that lingered. The finish is this beers weakness. Overall, not a bad IPA. I was expecting this to be a little better. Perhaps I need a fresh bottle. Their harvest ale kicks ass.

Pours a darker coppery color with a small white head. Aroma is west coast IPA hoppy with hints of citrus. Taste is also west coast hoppy with a nice touch of citrus to it. Would never guess that this is brewed in New York. Very good IPA.
