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.

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.

Bottle gift from SJ. Some nice notes of citrus, grapefruit, pine and caramel malt. Iím starting to notice a trend with this company with their brews being a bit thin. Not bad overall, but needs some work.

Very minimal head. Easy pour with refined presence. Slightly citrus hops but wish it had more hops.

Pours a clear golden than clouds up once it strikes the glass. Light grapefruit, pine, and resin strike my buds. Not real bitter at all and my tongue was begging for more hops. Very light finish and easy drinking. Need to follow this up with more IBUs. Decent at best.

Pours a clear golden yellow. Aroma is citrus fruits, pine, and some Belgian yeast. Taste is some light grapefruit, pine, and a little of that yeast, which I found odd. Maybe it was just my taste being off? Not a bad beer.

Pours hazy golden yellow with white head. Smell is pine, citrus, and resin. Taste is hoppy but balanced by malt. Notes of resin and citrus. Smooth mouth feel. Medium body and medium carbonation.

arminjewell (7271) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 9, 2014
Pour out of 22 oz bottle, very hazy orange pour with white head, aroma brought notes of biscuit, bread, yeast, some slight white fruit into orange, touch of grapefruit, nice grassy notes as well. Taste was a mix of grass, orange, grapefruit, some bready, yeasty notes into some spicy, earthy notes, finishing bitter, dry. Nicely made.

I bought this at a Wegmanís grocery store when visiting a friend in Rochester. I poured it into a goblet at home. Overall, this is a pretty good IPA. Itís not great. It poured mostly clear with a nice head. In terms of aroma, one is struck by the grassy hops and this carries over to the taste. This is a balanced beer. While the IBUs are 76, it doesnít taste as bitter as I expected. That said, the sweetness is on the light side. It has medium body and a bitter finish. This is worth trying if you are in Rochester (the brewer is out of the greater Rochester area).

bottle @ Habersham Beverage / Savannah GA --- Clear medium amber with a 3" white head that slowly drops to a thick cover, mottled curtain of lace. Taste is caramel malt that moves through the palate, adding a strong burst of pine hops that recede quickly, leavin g semi-sweet citrus in a long finish. Fantastic brew with great balance, and complexity. Not at all overwhelming, but a really solid tasty brew.
