4.15/5  rDev +13.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

12oz brown glass pry-top bottle with no recognizable freshness date. Obtained from a recent trip to Plattsburgh.

Appearance: Pours a thick-looking orange-amber with a tiny amount of white bubbly head. Not foam, but bubbles.

Nose: Dry and herbal smelling, there's a brightness too, an almost minty coolness to it.

Palate: Medium bodied and crisp, yet somehow also round feeling. There is a fine edge at the finish cutting off the roundness of the midpalate. Flavors are of braised oranges spiced and herbed (Provencal), medium toasted malt, and a cooling, almost menthol feel from the hops, giving the beer a really refreshing feel despite the medium-malty profile.

Notes: Incredibly well balanced IPA, while maintaining a bitter profile. The hops rule this beer with a subtle hand, gently coaxing it into the more "bitter" side of things without being unruly themselves. The menthol/mint character is unique and appreciated, making the beer really refreshing both in the bottle and in the glass. Sessionable and unique. Well done.

3.4/5  rDev -7.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Purchased from Wegmans in Liverpool, NY. Poured into a snifter. Pours a deep amber color. Smells malty with a hint of hops. Tastes malty with a finish of piney and citrus notes. Definitley not one of the best ipa's I have had. It is too malty for my liking. But the beer is smooth and has a nice drinkability.
