Draught at the Barcade, Brooklyn, NY.BrewIPA (93) - Rochester, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2012
Amber colour with small off-white head.
Fruity sweetish hoppy aroma with mild resin, mild bitterness and caramel malt. Bitterish hops, resin, grapefruit and sweetish malt in flavour. Rich. Bitterness in aftertaste.
Bottle poured into pint glass has orange amber color with light carbonation. Hops really stand out in this beer. Nice pine flavors and very good overall balance. Another local beer that I plan to get again.

I don’t remember much about this one, other than that the others in our tasting session thought it was the bitterest and most disgusting beer they’d ever had (it wasn’t that bitter, nor was it that terrible, but it wasn’t a great IPA). Had on tap at the brewery/vineyard. Most of their beer was pretty forgettable. kaser (6314) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 26, 2012
Bland floral aroma. Pours orange with little foam. Tastes slightly skunky. Grassy and pine taste. Bitter. Not big on this

Bottle. Pours light amber with a medium off-white head. Floral hop aroma with a touch of malt sweetness. Floral and citrus (grapefruit) hop flavors with medium malt sweetness. Nice bitter finish but a little thin overall.

Bottle from Ithaca coffee. Pours orange with almost no head. A bit of hoppiness on the nose. Big grapefruit on the tongue but it finishes fairly cleanly. jkwood04 (5449) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 24, 2011
12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a thick, lacy, cream-colored head. Aroma of citrusy hops and light caramel malts. The hops are very strong in this IPA, and it is very grapefruit-like in the finish. Average texture. A nice hoppy IPA. JoeMcPhee (9427) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 17, 2011
Deep amber gold pour with a bright white head. Transparent brew. The aroma is spicy and fairly citrusy with just a kiss of light caramel malt contributing to the nose and to the flavour. Lots of sweet toffee and some rich malts. The beer isn’t all that novel, but it’s a very well-executed IPA. A bit of sweet toasted malt along with some lingering fruit. It’s a very quaffable IPA.
