12oz can dated 12/29/2013 poured into pint glass.

Light yellow/orange elixir, thin rim of tight, white bubbles, few wisps of lacing.

Citrus, spice, rind.

Smooth hops predominate. Lemon rind, pine, earth tones.

Crisp, mild, light.

Like with all sessionable hoppy brews, you sacrifice the full flavor of the hops for lower alcohol.

Invasion is a really nice, smooth and drinkable beer. It is very hop forward, and finishes clean with a touch of malt. A very good beer to give to your friends who aren't big into craft beer, as the taste is just familiar enough to them that they won't be scared away.

Freshie can (canned 10/29/14 stamped on the bottom, so about 10 days in the can) from Decicco's in Ardsley, NY

Fresh hop nose, pours typical near clear, lighter almond amber. Frothy off white head, thats on the looser side. Leaves fluffy strands of stick.

Pleasing hopped up pale. Resins and pine early then some soft tropical fruit in the finish. Nice.

Pours clear, gold in color, with 1/4 inch head. Taste is citrus--tangerine and orange, grass, and pale malt. Tasty above average pale ale. Not one I would rush out for, but not one I would pass over either.
