COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
East coast vs west coast...a battle that has been waged for years in many forms. Now there arises a brew that strives to unite the two sides. This IPA bursts with an inviting hop aroma in conjunction with a carefully selected monastic yeast strain. It delivers unexpected, yet delectable flavor. Case closed?

beerbill (3564) - Laurel, New York, USA - FEB 28, 2012
22 oz. bottle. Pours lightly hazed yellow gold with a large fluffy off-white head that lasted until the very last sip and left pillow of lace all the way to the end. Pleasant aroma of citrus, more orange than grapefruit, with a few notes of pine. Seems like there is a bit of spice in the aroma as well. The flavor begins with malt and is followed by some nice fruity hops goodness with orange and grapefruit. Some spice in the flavor as well, more noticeable than in the aroma. Moderate bitterness at the finish. Very enjoyable IPA.

Pour hazy golden with a large white head and good lacing. Aroma has grapefruit, fruity ester, clove, citrus. Taste is very bitter, lots of clove, esters, yeast, pepper, grapefruit. Good carbination with a medium body. I guess I should not of had it so soon after the double IPA.

Fresh malt and strong hop aroma. Hazy light orange color with a large white head. Late bitter beginning that fades in the finish.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 16, 2012
Bottle. Poured a hazy pale with a frothy off-white head that settled to a ring with time and left light lace. Aroma was yeast, spice, and hop background. The flavor found much the same; Belgium yeast, citrus hop, and light spices. Medium body, medium bitterness throughout, and a Belgium aftertaste. Decent Belgium IPA, but almost a little overdone on the yeast presences.

jgb9348 (5015) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Super hazy golden coloured body with a bit of a honey glow and a thick, dense soapy tan head. Aroma of very nice pale and grassy hop notes, some yeast and light coriander seed spiciness. Medium-bodied; Grassy, herbal hoppy flavour at first with some yeast and malt behind and very little in complexity. Aftertaste shows mostly hoppy notes with some unfinished wort type flavours and a little alcohol dryness near the end. Overall, an okay beer - about what I’d expect from Custom Brewcrafter beers and about right from Rochester. I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Oliver’s Beverage in Albany, New York on 18-November-2011 for US$6.99 sampled at home in Washington on 23-December-2011.

This beer was bad. The hops tasted sour. It was over carbonated and took about 15 minutes to pour, glass was all head with just a few drops. Palate was bitter straight through. Just horrible.
