Pours slightly hazy orange, substantial off white head. Aroma is vaguely citrus, grassy, mulch, slightly dank? Taste is resiny, bitter, with, bready malt. Light to medium mouthfeel. Their are lots of better IPad, not sure what they were going for with this. No date on the can, so maybe it’s too old? shawnmurphy (495) - Plattsburgh, New York, USA - JAN 28, 2017
I’ve been to the brewpub in Lake Placid and drank this beer (and others) on tap, but was pleased to see they are canning now, which saves me an hour’s trip, so I picked up a six-pack. Pours clear orange-amber. Two-finger white head dissipates after a few minutes to leave behind some lacing. Aroma is of blood orange, pine needles, and fresh-baked bread. Taste is hop-forward with the above-mentioned aromas becoming flavors. It’s medium-bodied with great mouthfeel; the hop resins coat the tongue. There’s a long, lingering bitterness. If I had to re-categorize this beer, I’d call it an amber IPA because there’s a fair amount of malt, too. Drake (13738) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 3, 2015

Une bonn ipa, west coast pas sur, pas assez crisp mais neanmoins une bonne biere dans un minuscule brew pub. une belle decourverte dans une petite ville. Mfaczan (5) - - OCT 21, 2012 does not count
A great pale in the style of a good west coast pale ale. Just the right hoppiness. Hopheads will like!

Great Adirondack Brewery in Lake Placid, N.Y., on June 28, 2012. Draft into pint glass. One finger of head when I got it. Pale, see through color. White frothy lacing with good retention.
Smelled lemon citrus hops. Wet cascade lime. Pine and soapy.
Tasted similar to the smell with more bitterness. Lemon, cascade, wet, icy, pine.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Average carbonation. Smooth, bitter finish. Somewhat refreshing.
This beer had its moments but wasn’t too spectacular overall.
