This brew represents years of tireless tweaking and testing of our recipe going all the way back to our home-brew days. The name is a reference to the blight that helped to wipe out the once thriving hops farms in Central NY, the recent resurgence of hops growing in NY State, and the many folks and organizations working hard to research blight resistant hops varieties bred to grow specifically in the great State of NY. Potent, with aromas of tropical fruit and melon, and mouthwatering pine and gooseberry flavors. Medium to light bodied with a bitter semi-dry finish.
[Can (12oz)] Pours a murky orange-peach colour with an average size long-lasting frothy white head. Aroma is just a touch odd, it's citrusy and a bit catty along with grain, bready malt, a hint of herbs and a light vegetal note. Slightly watery flavour is a bit milder than expected, with citrusy hops and bready malt -- not as much flavour as I'd expect an IPA to have. Average bodied. Good to pretty good.

Can from Wegmans pic six. Golden pour with a white head. Citrus hop aromas. Flavor has citrus upfront with some dankness and lite hop bitterness.
Dank hops and lemon citrus hops in the aroma. Taste is a lemon citrus hop character with a dank bitter finish. Nice body and balance but the hop profile is a bit odd to me. Sometimes almost seems earthy and soapy, but I think it It a lemon citrus dank hop profile. Some melon, but not a tropical hop profile at all and not juicy. Hazy IPA though. It is a fine IPA, unique hop profile but nothing really blows me away about it.
