COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. Itís like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

Golden pour, perfect head. Nice medium hoppy flavour with a smooth finish. A little bitter at the end but overall a good not great IPA.

From a 1 pt, 6 oz bomber, poured into a dimple mug. The honey-colored pour was topped with a persistent off-white head. The aroma is coniferous and piney with a touch of sweet malt. The nicely balanced liquor featured a sweet, floral hop attack with perhaps a hint of biscuit in the background. The finish was lingering and nicely bitter without being overwhelmingly so. A nicely done, solid IPA. Bought at the Village Beer Merchant in Buffalo, NY (I tried to add this but RateBeerís availability tool is malfunctioning).

On tap @ Tap and Mallet - Best IPA of all the local Rochester area beers we sampled. Hazy gold pour with small to medium white firm head. Big fresh hop aromas, lots of citrus peel and thick floral characteristics. Aggressive fresh hop flavor with good bitterness to balance the piney grapefruit flavors. Would definitely look for this one when in the Rochester ares.

Elwood (3336) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2012
Serving: Draft. Heavy gold pour. Herbal hop nose. Hop heavy but it has balance. Floral with light citrus. Lighter in body. Really nice brew.

Boutip (5861) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2012
Bottle: Poured an amber color ale with a large foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of citrus and piney notes is quite dominant with some semi-sweet caramel malt notes also distinguishable. Taste is also a balanced mix between some citrus and piney notes with some residual sugar and caramelized malt also noticeable. Body is quite full with good carbonation. More floral hoppy notes would have helped provided further enjoyment of this beer.

Hoppy but not over hoppy. Nothing seems to jump out to me to make this a distinct beverage. Dont get me wrong this brew is better than average but Iíve tasted pine & citra notes many times before in an IPA. Overall it isnt great. The worse part is that The Kind is not so kind to my palate. Many India Pale Ales arent forgiving to ones palate so I wont let that ruin my overall judgement here. Lastly I am not a big fan of citra hops and Im fairly sure they are in The Kind. In the end each to his or her own.

Draft at NOVA BrewFest. Poured a nice clear orange color with a small, but solid white head. Aroma was nice citrus, with a touch biscuit malt in there - sweetness to it that was quite pleasant. Pine notes for sure. Flavor was nice pine, with bitterness, well balanced with sweet malts. Pretty darn refreshing.

Muddled.... A typical lower-end "East coast" ipa. It isnít horrible but nothing excites me abut it.

blankboy (7180) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 19, 2012
Cask at Blind Tiger, NYC. June 2. Pours a slightly hazy orange-copper with no head. Aroma is fruity along with citrus hops, slightly resiny and catty as well. Flavour of citrusy hops, fruit, some light spices and malt in the back. Average to medium bodied. Good stuff, better then I expected.

22oz bottle in a shaker. Pours light amber with a fluffy, off-white head. Aroma of a lot of bitter and lightly citrusy hops plus some caramel malts. Flavor about the same. Average texture. A decent IPA, but the hop blend used doesnít fit somehow.
