On tap at the pub.The color is a hazy honey with a thin off white head. The aroma is of hops and more hops.The taste is also of hops and citrus fruits, but something is missing. It is a decent I.P.A..

20080730 Tap at brewpub. Lots of c hops right off the bat and clear through to the finish. Simcoe in the flavor gives a nice tropical note. Good stuff for a brewpub IPA though it is no world beater.

puzzl (3258) - New York, New York, USA - MAR 27, 2008
Tap at Blind Tiger. Bitter hop aroma with light chocolate. Palate is thin and there is a lack of flavor other than hops. Pretty boring and typical brewpub fare.
