Drank on tao (20 oz) at the brewpub in June 26, 2015. Copper gold, small head. Green hop aroma, a bit of citrus notes. Similar but fruitier taste, some peach notes, good bitterness. Its good enough for me!

Dark reddish amber with a creamy off white head that leaves sleeves of lacing on the glass. Mild, balanced with light floral and pine bitterness. Drinkable with a nice lingering dryness.

On tap at brewery. This beer is a bit of a full circle event for me as this was the first IPA that I had so many moons ago that made me like them hops. I must admit that this wasnt as bad as I thought it would be. Pours with a slight haze and is red/orange in colour. There are those hoppy citrus aroma with hint of pine cones but they are rather muted and simple. On the palate it is medium to full bodied, has those classic hoppy leafy notes expected from the style. Overall this is a rather simple but well done american styled IPA. Not the worst beer brewed in the region.

Aroma is a bit of hops and sweetness. Clear brown colour. flavour is a bit of hops with sweet and tartness. Not a lot going on.

Deep amber pour with a little bit of white head. The aroma is quite citrusy and a little bit fruity. A touch of light bitterness on the finish. Slightly oxidized with a touch of light bitterness. It's an okay IPA but the bitter is a better brew. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at Merchant Ale House. Pours hazy amber with thick foamy white head. Strong pine and flowery aroma that I love from an IPA. Taste mildly bitter and smooth.

I enjoyed this IPA, it had a nice hoppie tastem quite fruity. If I had to guess I would say they use a different hop for their main hop in the beer then most other IPAs I have had, it was a different IPA but it fit great for the style

The aroma was dominated by the hops. Aromas of pine, and citrus were there. Hazy. One finger of head. Poor head retention. Copper/ amber in colour. Good hop flavouring; grassy, a little bit of citrus, pine. Good hop bittering too. Enough malt to stand up to the hops so it is not out of balance. Overall, Its a nice juicy IPA

j12601 (10266) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - NOV 27, 2009
On tap at the Merchant Ale House. Pours a hazy orange hued amber with a medium sized tanned beige head. Big pine and citrus aromas. Medium bodied, light caramel, nice grapefruit tones, a slight off note of mineral and metal. Finishes up with a long grapefruit bitterness with a faint hint of caramel. Pretty solid.
