Got a Growler from Bullseye beer distributor in Smithtown. Poured into a pint glass.... the look of this beer is beautiful.... copper color but you can see right thru it like water... lots of bubbles which made a beautiful head that stayed for a bit but laced away. Great smell that is the quinquennial iPa smell. gave off a very hoppy smell.. pine smell all the way.... beautiful balance so it's not too dry, too heavy... very much hop taste right up front.... but if your drinking an ipa than that's what you want. Mellows out a little... little bit of an aftertaste but more so that you want more of it... I am not an IPA fan but I am slowly getting there. There are 1 or 2 other IPA's I feel are slightly better but that's not a knock... I was pleasantly surprised by how great this tasted. I will definitely recommend and look to drink again.

On-tap at Brklyn Beer Garden, JFK Airport Terminal 2, NYC

A: The beer is slightly hazy amber yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that left lacy patches of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of pine resin hops are present in the nose along with notes of citrus.
T: The taste is almost a mirror image to the smell and starts out with flavors of grapefruit hops and quickly transitions to flavors of pine resin hops, the latter of which contributes a moderate amount of bitterness and lingers through the finish.
M: It feels medium-bodied and rather crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This isn't a bad IPA as it has an interesting mix of grapefruit and pine resin aromas and flavors.

On draft at Canterbury Ales, Huntington, NY.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was decent retention and lacing.

The smell featured full herbal and citric hops.

The taste was likewise hop driven with a confusing medley of hop varietals. Herbal and citrus elements dukes it out for recognition.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a gods hop driven ale looking for an identity.

On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Poured into standard pint glass.
Slightly orangey golden color, nice thick head, and lots of lacing.
Pine and citrus hops. Smells really fresh and just alive.
Taste is great. Just the right amount of hops, toasty malt, and alcohol.
I had this brew a while back at TAP NY at hunter mountain. I remember this brew standing out amongst many and haven't really seen too much of it since. I really enjoyed it then and still think this is a fantastic IPA. Deff worth a try....in fact I may even say to seek this one out. Not many reviews here on BA for this, but I am not sure why. Go get one.

This is an excellent beer. Three frothy fingers of foam which dissipates to a single finger that lasts. Lacing is very good. Bright, aggressive hoppy aroma. Pine and citrus and everything delicious. Carbonation is just right. Oily the way I like it, but a good balance of bitterness and dryness, too. Poured into a Greenport pint glass from a newly cracked growler bought today from Greenport Harbor Brewery. Nice.
