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.

Drank a 6 pack of this while at the beach recently. Bright, fruity aroma with lots of citrus and pale malt. Very balanced with lots of flavor, though not what Jai Alai is. Nothing bad to note about this one. A great summer/beach beer.

Nice American pale ale. Kind of like an IPA with the hops ever so slightly turned down. The color is just slightly darker than a standard lager. The west coast hops in the smell is subtle enough to differentiate, but not by much. The flavor starts with malt but very quickly goes to the hops. Not sure what variety, but in addition to the citrusy notes it's almost a little grassy. I wouldn't drink all night, but a fine beer I would definitely have again

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.
