Reviewed from notes

A - Copper color with 2 finger pillowy white head. Excellent lacing on the glass

S - Floral aromas, pineapple, pine resin

T - Pineapple, caramel malt, then bitter piney hop finish. Good balance of sweet and bitter

M - Thick for an IPA

O - Very solid offering; perhaps not as crisp as some, but quite tasty

6 pack from Deciccio’s in Brewster. Had on the train to grand central with Jlynn and some college girls… Giggity.

A – Unfiltered golden color with off white head.

S- Hoppy citrus aroma with a certain malty sweetness to it.

T- Nice hoppy citrus base with a syrupy malty sweet backbone

M- Full bodied ipa with decent carbonation

D- Interesting ipa. I usually like mine hoppy but the syrupy malt backbone complimented the citrusy hops very well. Cigar City does some very cool stuff.
