Was not my favorite of the samples at the brewery. Excellent smell but honestly too hop forward for my taste. It was very good and left that crisp ".I want more " taste but not my cup of tea and I have tried beers with high 80 low 90 IBU's and better. I would not say don't try for a second cause you should.

On draft at TJ Finley's, Bayshore, NY.

Poured a murky dark copper hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and very good lacing.

The smell featured balmy piney hops and earthy caramel.

The taste consisted of a full resinous hop demonstrating elements of grapefruit and pine. A full round malt supported the lively hop.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a brawny hop forward IPA. A nice tweener.

Poured from sample bottle to blue point snifter. Bottle says 75 IBU. Brewed with Colombus, Summit, Centennial and Citra hops...sounds pretty killer. word on the street is that this will be a new draft only offering. i feel privileged to get ahold of a sample bottle for a taste.

a - brew poured classic murky ipa deep brownish orange with a finger of classic off white foamy ipa head that hung out and left streaky lacing on the glass.

s - surprised to get a big malt backbone since i'm fairly sure that this is uber fresh and packed with all them hops...i'd expect more of a fruity bouquet, but instead my nose is greeted with a big earthy malt. behind the earthiness there is definite citra.

t - as the nose suggests, there is a big earthy malt presence. the hops are a bit more forward in the flavor than the nose, but they seem to be there more for the bitterness than the flavor. make no mistake, there is some hop dankness to the flavor, but not so much in the citric grapefruit blast that i love, but more in the resiny bitterness.

m - nice carbonation, good rich feel. dank and resiny.

o - overall a nice ipa from the locals. this one does not bring a medley of citric flavors, but does bring lots of thick resin and bitterness. i'd like more sweetness and citric blast, but this is an easy drinker and rather enjoyable.

Picked up directly from the god damn source.

Pours out deep orange.

A nice beer. The brew flows clean with decent hop and malt presence. Nothing to over powering, no real citrus or pine to it just more of an earthy ipa. An excellent local showing for a non-double ipa.
