Growler from Half Time, Poughkeepsie.
Pours pale amber with yellow-white rocky head that clings. Caramel and red grapefruit candy nose. Yellow cake and apricot malts with hops of warm spice and some citrus. Dry, salty leave. Light-medium, slight chew, no burn.
Brewer was at the store; he said Willamette, Warrior and Cascade, so I see where the earthiness over c-hops comes from. He also said it was designed to be sessionable, and it hits that. But while the light body helps the drinkability, it is a bit thin for the flavors.

Surprisingly good find,when added to a short 6'er of Hop Devil at the local Stop+Shop market.
This "Wagon" found a smooth path between hops and malts,and many flavors emerged through its cloudy consistency.
"Red" rates on the green side of the beer rating divide,is very drinkable,add it to the roster at the beach,or wherever...

I enjoyed this from and IPA glass by DFH bottle purchased from half time.
the color is dark amber with good clarity and thick tan off white head with fine bead. The lace creates a film and carbonation rises quickly from the nucleation site in the glass. The smell has a nice citrus aroma of west coast hops with light sweet malt and hint of yeast ester accenting. The feel is moderately bitter with a tangy hop texture and slight malt sweetness with moderate carbonation and bitterness increasing in the dry finish.
The flavor has a slightly orange rind taste with subtle caramel from the malt and good bitter tangerine accent with some mild grassy tinges and light lemon zest and toasted malt flavor. the alcohol is mild in the mostly bitter dry finish. Overall this is a solid IPA, very drinkable but is pretty familiar with citrus and bitterness dominant in the taste.
