Excellent double IPA from a local microbrewery. Of all the samples we tried, I would say there wasn't a bad one among them. Definetly worth the trip for both the tasting and the tour. Wonderful, informative staff as well. Full- bodied character to this beer, my husband and I enjoyed this beer( and the place in general) immensely. Tours are on Sundays only, and we both recommend going early before the crowďs descend.

A: hazy; burnt orange in color; 1 finger off white head that receded to a thin cap; light lacing;

S: booze and caramel malt;

T: caramel malt first; booze in mid-palate that fades as you get to the finish; if you wait, you get a touch of bitterness;

M: a touch syrupy; moderate carbonation;

O: no hops; other reviewers had a very different experience and what they tasted was what I was hoping for; perhaps I had an old bottle, but I couldn't find a date; if I find a bottle with a fresh date, I'll try it again;

Bottle purchased at Middle Ages Brewing Company in Syracuse, NY. Poured into a Rooster Fish tulip.

Pours a dark orange, with a billowing 2 inch head, and really good strings of lacing down the glass.

Smells include grassy hops, pine sap, pine needles, honey, and sweet malt.

The taste is similar. This straddles the line between Imperial English IPA and American Double IPA- lots of characteristics from both are in this. There is an enhanced malt flavor, very honey-like, with some dry crackery malt like characteristics. There is a huge hop slant to this beer though- lots of grapefruit, pine, and fresh cut grass all battle out. This is a huge IPA, with tons of flavors all battling each other. It could be slighly better melded together, and cleaner, but you can't deny it tastes good.

Medium bodied, sticky mouthfeel, finishes sweet. The alcohol is present a little bit, but doesn't detract too much.

This is a great DIPA from Middle Ages. Due to their English leaning and yeast use (Ringwood), this doesn't taste like a normal DIPA, but it still quite tasty and I enjoyed it.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

A-Clear ruby orange, two finger white head, with lots of lacing.

S-Citrus, dirt, grassy, pine tad bit of bread, nice hop notes.

T-Starts with some citrus, grass, bread, nice bitterness.

M-Lighter to medium in body, some hop bite.

O-A regular run of the mill DIPA. Yeah it is good, but in such a saturated market this does nothing to stand out. That being said ~7 dollars a bomber is a nice price.

Poured from a 22oz bottle into a pint glass. Pours a cloudy golden amber color with a finger thick white head. Smell is pretty weak. Mostly floral hops. Not much else. Taste is mostly citrus and floral hops with a good amount of bitterness and slight sweetness. Not much else really. The alcohol is covered up pretty well though by the bitterness. Mouth is very crisp, but maybe a bit too carbonated and heavy. Overall, an okay brew, but lacks in flavor.
