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.

Clean and light flowery hop aroma with a low but balanced bitterness. Sadly, it has some soapy undertones.

Clear golden pour. Outstanding head volume and retention, world class lacing. Nice nose of tropical hops (grapefruit, orange, mango) with a touch of pine over a light biscuit. Barely light medium bodied with a smooth texture. Well carbonated with effervescence from the middle on. The flavor profile is intense (hop flavor), a bit complex and reasonably balanced for a hop forward IPA. It begins with a burst of hop flavor, with pine in the forefront and the tropicals underneath. As it flows towards the middle, tropicals assume the forefront then yield to a nice herbal dankness. A mild grapefruit rind bitterness constitutes the middle over a subtle biscuit sweetness. The finish is a slow fade of grapefruit rind with a dank note.

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.

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.
