COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bright sunrise orange in color, this American IPA is boldly hopped with East Kent Goldings, Cascade and locally grown hop varieties to give an intense yet powerfully smooth bitterness. The subtle caramel maltiness only accents the citrus hop highlights. Dry hopped with an incredible 2-1/2 pounds per barrel, this American style IPA is handcrafted to be extraordinarily refreshing.

On tap at Tomatillo in Dobbs Ferry, N.Y. Pretty light and easy IPA. Not too exciting, but a good brew, and it was good company for my grilled shrimp burrito. I look forward to trying more from Wagner Valley - haven’t heard of them before.

Bottle from Half Time. Pours dark amber with a foamy beige head. For me the aroma is floral with a hint of resin. Medium body with foamy carbonation. Flavor is roasted malt with a lot of hop - floral/citrus/pine? More floral. Finishes nicely bitter. Better than many.

yellowish orange color with a good amount of hops and an intensely bitter flavor this beer is an excellent offering of a good ol american IPA

EithCubes (4631) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 15, 2010
Bottle. Huge piny hop nose with lots of citrus - big-time PNW scent out of a NY brewery. Very heavily dry hopped. Dark orange pour lets light through, fluffy tan head does not. Taste is surprisingly bitter (on the strong side of IPAs), bone-dry without any resin, and a good mix of pine and caramel. Light soap and light grapefruit/citrus. Fullish body. Place this one squarely into the ’aggressive’ IPA category.

Draft at the brewery, This one surprised me, much better than i expected. Copper color, healthy dose of cascade hops & caramel malts in the aroma. Taste had a good amount of bitterness, well rounded & balanced. Id go back to this

On draft at the brewery. I don’t know if it’s because I’m drinking this so fresh at the source, but this is a very nice IPA. I’ll have to pick it up in a 6-pack and give it a try over time. But fresh this is a nice resiny, piney, citrusy IPA.

The color is a somewhat cloudy shade of amber. Nice amount of head. Has a nice understated hop aroma, with something else. Can’t quite tell what it is, but maybe honey? It’s got a heavier flavor than most IPAs and a richness I can’t put my finger on. Pleasant enough balance of malts and hops. The hops are there, but definitely not dominant. I would prefer a little more hoppage, but I could probably drink more consecutively without it. It’s thick and a little creamy. Heavier than usual, but leaves a pleasant aftertaste. It’s a good beer, but not one I would buy a case of. Worth checking out in a mixed six-pack (which is how I got it).

Bottle. Deep amber in color with a white head. Not much of a head, minimal lacing. Flavor is actually quite good. A nice hop bite with some pine flavor....fading away into a nice caramel sweetness. Not much of a sharp finish, goes down very easy. Would buy this again.

12 ounce bottle. Pours a clear amber hue with a medium white head and sticky lacing. The aroma is caramel, rich citrus hops. The flavor is nice; caramel and earthy malts, bitterness, English hops, light tropical fruit and bitter in the finish. Nice. Easygoing.

12 oz bottle via Mys Swap 4.0 (thanks j12601!). Pours a clear copper with a HUGE HUGE chunky beige head. Nose is perfumy. Taste on this is of....an old bitter shoe? Dusty, dirty, earthy hops. Spices. Green beans... I almost wonder if this is infected considering the huge huge head? No real sourness, but just OFF, in a big way. I cannot imagine anyone would make a beer to actually taste like this on purpose? Whatever, down the drain she goes.
