A nice dark colored ipa. This has a solid puffy head of foam and slowly reduces to a sticky white lace which clings to the side of the glass. The aroma is quite piny, but true to the style. It
Seems to be a rather drinkable brew, but a bit too high in alcohol to be a Sade session beer.

A nice hazy dark amber with a big chewy white head and great lacing. The aroma is a musty ocean spray of pine hops and chewy toffee malt. The flavor brings a decided piney malt hop blend with a slight grassy edge. Nice bitterness but a mellow, smooth feel in a mid-bodied brew. It's refreshing with very fine and subtle carbonation, easy drinking, a very decent IPA for any occasion.

a-Deep reddish brown colour with a long lasting head.

s-Very heavy with grapefruit hops.

t-Nice and hoppy with a slight maltiness to round it out. Falls somewhere in the middle of least hoppy to most hoppy IPAs.

m-Heavier as one would expect of a solid IPA and one with a 7% abv as well

d-very drinkable...almost dangerously so.

Enjoyed in a pint glass. I had this on tap at the brewery and enjoyed it so much I bought a growler. This is a delicious wet-hop ale and with all local NY hops! I remember it being in the range of 6.5-7% ABV, but I can't remember for sure so I left it off.

A: Aggressive pour yields 3 fingers of thick off-white head. Froth sticks around. Bronzey color is pretty.

S: Floral and piney and citrus hops. Slight dark malt underneath. Well balanced for a west coast hop forward IPA all the way!

T: Malt to start and hops to finish. Balanced but leans toward the hop. Great cascade hop flavor. A little off flavor in the finish maybe. Much more bitter than any other fresh hop IPA I've had.

M: Syrupy/oily. Bitter but not bracing.

D: Alcohol is only thing preventing it from being perfectly drinkable. It is solid and delicious.
