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.

This is a full-figured IPA. Very piney aroma. Nice dark amber appearace. Strong bitter hop flavor that is quite crisp. Enough malt to keep it well balanced and nice bitter finish. Very nice. Not overwhelmingly bitter, but quite enjoyable.

These boys know how to brew a beer. Not what I was expecting from a CNY winery when I picked up a couple of IPas and Dopplebocks. An almost unsurpassed hop floral bouquet awaits and a fine hopped up but balanced brew. This can compete with the best of them. A rave is in order for a 3-rating beer. I'll try another to make sure I/m not spouting off, but second only to DFH 90 in my opinion.

Wagner Valley IPA is a sparkling, crystal clear amber ale with a fluffy off-white head that has outstanding retention. It has a sharp grapefruit/pine aroma. It’s medium bodied, foamy and very smooth. The finish is clean. It’s simple and bitter with a very green, leafy bitterness. The malt balances it out well, to make it a very drinkable pale ale.

Deep ruby red color, piercing hop flavor. The best IPA that my grocery store carries.

Pours deep clear amber, with a good sized fluffy tan head that somewhat lasts, leaving good lacing. Aroma has caramel, toasted grain, and a good strong amount of floral, citric, and piney hops. Flavor starts a little sweet and bready, middle is a bit spicy, ends with a strong wallop of hops. Medium body. Thanks again to jah noth.

Very nice. Dry and crisp. BItter and piney. Amber with thin white head and a full roasty flavor. An enjoyable IPA. Leaves a nice lingering bitter aftertaste. On rerate..still enjoyable but could use a bit more malt in teh background. Became more noticable as the beer warmed. Still a great IPA

adamsm (1) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - JUL 22, 2004 does not count
hoppy, definitely has a grapefruit taste, clear but would have expected a slightly lighter color, little more that usual after taste, one of the best on tap values for a growler, overall a good hoppy american IPA microbrew

Pretty amber brown body. Head is off-white, creamy and evenly thick but disipates rapidly. One of the most fragrant, lucious and enticing smells you will ever get from an IPA. Lots of sweet hops, like honey dew, pine cone and pineapple with some raisins, pit fruit, fresh cut wood qualities. Its all I can do not to just down the thing before I finish typing this sentence. Mouth feel begins a little watery until strong, even flavors permeate. Lots of sweet pine and fruity hops turning roasted and citric with some lemon showing near the end. Damn good beer from a smaller, and lesser known brewery. Sweet and bitter managed wondrously in the aftertaste. Solid. Thanks to my boy Jeremy (jgb9348) for bringing this baby back from NY for me.

Bottled. Poured with an ample light tan head. Hops were present in the nose. The taste exhibited more hops married with a good amount of malt. The finish was a buttery/hoppy finish. Very nice beer.
