Nice pour, lots of light foam, light golden brown color, taste is very good, they brew a good IPA here, stacks up pretty well to others I have had, nice hops, good malt presence as well, bitterness hits you in the end. I like it, I will buy it regularly based on the price....good brew.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 ounce bottle received in a trade with Reagan1984 thanks!
A-Golden orange with a 1 finger creamy white head with good retention and modest lacing.
S- Sweet citrus and bready malt coupled with a mild floral hop in the nose
T-Bread notes up front followed by floral hops and then a citrus zest wave that soon subsides. the hops are not aggressive in any way. this is definitely a traditional east coast usa ipa taste. Good thing for that citrus zest taste, without it this brew would be overpowered by sweet malt.
M- Felt a bit thin probably due to a lack of carbonation and really dried out my mouth.
D- Very drinkable because of how much it dries your mouth out and the mellow nature of the hops. This is an easy IPA to session with.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 fl. oz bottle from C’s Farm Market, Oswego NY, served cold in a Scotch Irish taster glass.
App.: Hazy orange-amber with a decent white head.
Aroma: Grapefruit and marmalade, a touch of infection, some crystal malt, caramel and brown sugar,
Palate: Medium body and moderate effervescence.
Flav.: Still a touch of infection, mainly C-hops and caramalt, a bit green, leafy, vegetal, resinous/dank, a little brown sugar; lightly sweet with decent bitterness and a malty/grapefruit finish.
A typical American-style IPA, I guess. Could be fresher.
