First off, this is one of my favorite breweries. No hype, just a pleasant place up the Hudson River to stop for some fresh beer done right. I often stop by when I'm in the area...about 25 miles north of my place in Manhattan.

Excellent IPA...nice hops, but not too bitter. This is a well-balanced IPA through and through. I favor the English-style where the hops are present and pronounced, but not too over the top.

I had one at the brewery and took a growler home Sunday evening. Now its Thursday, and I am finishing off the growler...better than ever.

Well done, Defiant!

Serving type: growler

3.99/5  rDev +6.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours hazed orange to amber with a thin head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is floral, piney, herbal.

The taste is floral, piney, herbal with a pale malt, slightly bready backing. Finishes with a bitter dryness.

Medium-bodied, and smooth despite abv (well-hidden) and bitter bite.

A nice hoppy - herbal/floral IPA!

Serving type: on-tap
