4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

Bomber via beer world. Muted, translucent amber body. Initially the head grew like a mutated Japanese monster. It finally settled down leaving large iceberg like blobs of foam floating in the glass threatening to destroy any ship that came to close. Nose is sweet hops covered in malts and stuff....with things. Body is surprisingly hoppy but as the label states....not to overpowering.... Wow, honesty in advertising for once! Another quality beer from New York.... Whoo hoo!

650ml bottle in Las Vegas. Hazy amber brown, good head. Toffee hop aroma. Resin hop malt flavour. Bitter sweet aftertaste. More like an Imperial IPA.

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

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.
