3.75/5  rDev -4.1%

Date: 8/20/14
Location: DeCicco's Armonk
Glassware: Snifter

Appearance: Amber in color with a pretty decent haze. As heady a beer as I have had in a while. White in color it clings almost limitlessly to the sides of the glass as it is imbibed.
Aroma: This beer is certainly on the sweeter side as flavors of caramel and even a slight honey come through. The hop presence is strong and slightly floral but frankly a little dull in aroma. A little alcohol can be found as well.
Taste: The taste is just as sweet as the aroma. More flavored caramel, the hop flavor is similar to the aroma and whatever bitterness that shows up in the finish is overpowered by the sweetness in the front.
Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is pretty smooth. Medium to medium high body. High carbonation. Some viscitude either from the alcohol or the hop acids.

look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Hazy golden colour with a big, foamy, off-white head. Very good head retention. Quite pretty.

Lightly citrussy with some real spice notes. Light honeyed malt aroma. Quite good.

Rich malt that supports a moderate hop flavour. Slightly citrussy with big cohumulone.

Medium body with moderate carbonation. Nice.

A solid IPA but nothing amazing. Good flavour but there is really no X-factor.

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

Beautifully balanced IPA full of fruity goodness.

aroma: fruity/citrus aroma with oranges coming through most strongly

taste; fruity/floral with great balance. Nice orange and spice/peel coming through with some pine and a bready/malt backbone. Good bitterness and very drinkable!
