2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
A disappointing debut from this new local brewer with a great brand. It’s one of those sweet, overly bitter IPAs with no complexity, no hop aroma, no personality. Just bitter sugar water. Tons of chocolate, caramel. Blech.
Tap at Lost Borough. Brown-amber, hazy, with a low head. Citrus hop nose, piny resins, caramel. Malty flavor of caramel and chocolate, bread. Nicely hopped. A good American hoppy brown, I would guess, with a peppery, prickly finish. two7offsuit (448) - Massachusetts, USA - JUL 20, 2016
Pours dark Amber with a white head. Aroma is hoppy. Taste is bitter hops. Seems to be an IPA. SG111 (1820) - New York, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Tap at the source. Pours red color, beige head. Aroma is caramel, orange, big hope prominence, very sweet. Flavor is caramel, sugar sweetness, orange rind. Very sweet up front, bitter finish. Not bad. I can dig it. jb (3250) - Rochester, New York, USA - NOV 24, 2015
Nice looking, malty nose, then after that it is an IPA all the way. Not quite what I was hoping for but good. tomer (3514) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - NOV 4, 2015
Draught, smallish head, clear burgundy red color, herbal citrus aroma with some grains, yeasty vanila flavor, medium strong flowery bitterness and some fruitiness creeping in the back. Pleasant IPA.

Draft. Ambrr pour with a little head. Aromas has some fruit, herbal hop aromas. Herbal flavors and a good amount of malt presence. Too hoppy for the bartender here, not hoppy enough for me. kraddel (8074) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - FEB 3, 2015
Tap. Pours clear amber. Small white head. Smell is hoppy. Taste is bitter, sharp malty back. Amber malts are clear. More like an ipa to me rhan a amber ale. drsandman (1464) - New York, USA - SEP 14, 2014
Pours mahogany (clearly), white head. Aroma is malty, pine, caramel, faint coffee. Med sweet, lots of pine & bready malt. Medium body, fairly nice fruity piney hop profile. Leighton (21232) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2014

Light to medium sweet flavor with toasted pine, wholegrain bread, some ripe orange. Medium bodied with fine to average carbonation.
