Notes/Commercial Description:
Our India Pale Ale has a pronounced hop bitterness and wonderful hop aroma. The taste immediately gives away the high hop characteristics with malt aspects playing second fiddle to this fantastic example of the style.

On tap at Rattle-N-Hum in NYC. Pours cloudy honey amber in color with a small creamy off white head; pretty good lacing that sticks to the glass.

Smells of sweet malt, grains, hops, toasted bread and honey. Very weak nose overall.

Tastes of roasted malt, grains, lemon, citrus hops, caramel, bread and yeast...a toasty flavor that is not typical for an IPA and more like a lager than an IPA. It's a bad IPA, not hoppy or like an IPA at all...a drain pour, as it was tough to finish this beer. Bordered on terrible. A friend of mine also ordered one and gave the same review...he didn't even finish his.

On-tap at Dirty Truth.

Pours amber with an off-white head that retains up until the end, becoming a thick ring. Leaves nice walls of lacing. Dark for the style.

Extremely low hop presence, only super-slight earthy notes. Caramel and bready malts are there but barely provide any flavor. Not much to say.

I'm not sure if this is old, but this is probably the most boring IPA I have had. Not offensive, but barely any flavors.

Deep golden color, no hazy, carbonation streams, topped by a softball of snow white micro bubbles. Minimal lacing.

Citrus aroma, lemon, grapefruit, hint of orange. Nice, but could be more assertive.

Sweet malty start. Quick touch of fruit. Very unpleasant abrasive bitterness. Hints of cleanser.

Medium mouthfeel.

Not a pleasant experience, not recommended.

A good looking beer, nice clear brown copper color with a respectable head.

Not a lot of hop in the nose, more sweet malt notes than anything with some earthiness.

Flavor has a caramel up front with a firm bitterness but not much hop flavor. The hops that are there are earthy. Has a bit of a grainy dry flavor. Also tastes a bit old, probably better when it's fresh. Nebraska is a long way's off from New York.

Mouth feel is pretty good, rich and full.

Actually a pretty drinkable beer, just not very interesting.

Poured to a thick, off white to tan, head with great retention and lacing. Appearance was clear with an amber to honey color. Aroma was hoppy with nice citrus, grass and herb notes. Taste was earthy and mild with hop and grain notes. Medium to light mouthfeel with slightly bitter aftertaste.
