Poured It hazy amber here with the one finger foamy white head. There was very good retention and very good sticky lacing.

The smell featured an earthy sweetness and seemingly tired grassy hop.

The taste was likewise earthy in its sweetness with a slight citrus hop and the same dull grassiness.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style with a strange lingering bitterness.

Overall and unimpressive malt forward IPA.

Grabbed a bomber from Wegman's in Dewitt, NY. Nice to see another CNY brewer on the shelves. This is a good, but not amazing IPA. There's a fruity, juicy knock up front and a spicy—like spice cake—finish with a long, smooth bitter finish. There's a mild bready, doughy backbone. And more importantly for a newer brewer, it's a clean beer. Give it a shot.

Purchased on tap at the Syracuse Univeristy Football game. Solid IPA - hoppy, bitter and dry. I enjoyed this beer very much and will definitley purchase this in the future. I did drink this out of a plastic cup so I am sure I did not get the full flavor. Either way it was still very enjoyable.

bomber at blue water grill in skaneateles. the pours is really more like an amber, copper and rich in color, with an active and resilient white head. there is some haze, and this appears to be quite the lovely brew. the nose is sweet and hoppy, the darker malts give is some more fermentables, and the alcohol is in the nose too, would have guessed more like 7.5% abv. hops are in the pine family here, sappy and strong, as sweet as they are bitter in both taste and smell. the amber malt gives the beer a thicker body, nice for winter, and the carbonation is really lively, which lightens things up and improves upon an otherwise not incredibly sessionable mouthfeel. this is a big beer, bigger than its stats indicate, and is a nice bomber for sharing. it also think the darker malt profile makes it more of a sturdy ipa, which is nice in winter time. not sure how well i would have enjoyed this in july, but for now its darn good, and a solid first impression for me of cortland beer co. i will seek out more of their brews for sure. 11 bucks though was overpriced. not sure if it was the wealthy lakeside community inflation, or if this is a product of the brewery operation itself. either way, i wouldnt pay more than 8 bucks for a bomber of this again.

T-Starts with caramel malt and is rounded out by citrus hops. mild bitterness.

M-Medium bodied, carbonated and velvety.

Pours a light reddish copper with a warm glowing haze. The off white head head is long lasting. An absolutely gorgeous looking beer.

Moderately strong hop aromas of pineapple, citrus and pine. There is light malt sweetness in there with a light alcohol aroma in there as well. Clean fermentation showing no esters nor diacetyl.

The initial flavor is of citrus and pineapple hops with a well balanced hop bitterness and malt sweetness. The bitterness lingers into a long medium dry finish. There are also light hop flavors of resinous pine and mango. The alcohol has a soft perfume quality in very low levels.

This beer has a medium body with moderate carbonation. there is a slight alcohol warmth. No astringency

This is an enjoyably bitter but balanced IPA that I could enjoy a few pints of in a sitting. The hops aroma and flavor are moderately strong and I like just a touch more of both but it's defiantly to style want.
