On tap at Paul’s, Third batch of this, which has been gone through a hopback (previous two batches did not). Pours a clear orange amber with a medium sized white head. Bright citrus hops, earthy malt, sweet toast. Earthy, pungent hops, malt and a touch of grapefruit. Long bitterness, quinine and grapefruit pith. Very nice, easy drinking and wonderfully sessionable.

Growler courtesy of zdk - thanks Zach! Big congrats to Larry for getting the brewery off the ground and to Paul for the brewing. Rich amber pour with a tight off-white head. Lacy. The aroma has a ton of fresh citrus and pine in addition to some light toasted base malt character. Quite dry though despite this additional character. Lean bodied with a lot of hop bitterness and flavour. Lingering pine resin and soft malt sweetness. Balanced, fresh and very tasty - this growler is not long for this world.

Draft. Pours amber orange with an off white head. Floral and citric hoppy aroma with lightly sweet malts. The flavor has floral hops, sweet malts, light citrus notes, and just a hint of dankness. Good stuff.

At blind tiger. Very good pale ale.. Caramel, toasty, hoppy pale. Crisp and refreshing but also interesting and firm enough to make beer geeks happy.

Growler from Big Z Beverage in Huntington (Long Island), NY. Copper colored beer with a fluffy, white head. Pleasant floral and fruity American hop aroma, caramel malts playing along. Flavor starts out with some malty sweetness and then gets intertwined with a solid dose of fresh, green hops. This then fades into some firm bitterness with a pleasant drying in the finish. The beer is on the lighter side of medium bodied with soft carbonation, which makes the beer drinkable as all hell. Well done, I wish I had regular access to this
