Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: rodney45 on 09-25-2011

A blend of North American pale, light Munich, light crystal, and carapils malts provide a light malty backbone to balance healthy kettle and dry-hops additions of Cascade, Centennial, and Columbus. Hoppy yet balanced, our latest Project Hoppiness offering is our nod to the beers we love from the other coast. “Winner of the Brooklyn Mystery IPA Challenge.”

4.62/5  rDev +20.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A: The color of extremely fresh apple cider. Or light maple syrup. White cream colored lingering head that laces the glass with a spiderweb tapastry throughout the duration of the beer

S: Has a distinct cascade hop aroma, and smells vaguely of apricots, peach and pez candy. Very nice and warm IPA aroma. I wish they made candles scented of this beer.

T: Deep hop bitterness, yet balanced by a interwoven medely of malt and ethers. First tasting note are of hop character that speak of apple, blood orange, and pineapple. Its balanced off with medium malt flavor that imparts a sweetness to the beer not ussually found in an IPA. It has a warming ether flavor hidden deceptively behind other flavors, so this beer could sneak up on you since i have no idea of the ABV. Im guessing between 8 and 9%.

M: This beer is astoundingly complex and drinks more like a double IPA. Light to medium body, bitter, and beautiful.

O: This is an excellent example of the style, a bit bitter for the casual beer drinker im sure, but this truely warms my hop crazy heart. Like i said, its more a double IPA than an IPA, but it could hold its own against any hop head's wildest dreams.

NOTE: A buddy of mine brought this beer home from the Maritime festival in Greenport NY, where Greenport Harbor Brewery makes an appearance every year since its opening. I missed the festival due to work obligations, but my dear friend brought me home 64 oz of very very delicious beer. GP Harbor has done some fine work by this beer, and other beers ive tried. They're trying to make a name for themselves, and from what i hear, the tap room is worth the visit. On a previous trip i met some of the brewers, and theyre a bunch of local guys, who wanted to brew some great honest beer. They've done just that. (1,793 characters)

look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a golden color with a puffy creamy head. Nice retention.

The aroma is floral. Grapefruit and pepper seem to dominate the profile. Some honey sweetness.

The taste is a little more bitter. The grapefruit is still there but it also brings the rind as well as some pine notes. A substantial hoppy flavor. The malt is bready with honey sweetness and does a nice job supporting the hops.

Moderate feel with tingly carbonation. Definitely bitter on the palate but there is enough sweetness from the malt to offset. Finishes slightly dry.

A well made IPA. The hop profile is not my favorite but it is still good. Good to see Greeport bottling their brews. (667 characters)

4.13/5  rDev +7.8%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Thrilled this is available in bottle form for $11.99 a 6er. Attractive packaging.

Super oily, hop bomb, slightly flat sweet malt, hops vicious enough to overcome sweetness. Refreshing, throat clearing resinous. Marmalade with tons of fresh cut pine. Hops linger, slightly sharp, cuts over sweet malt. Better on draft, not quite as boisterous, slightly syrupy in bottle, still, excellent and will buy again. The hops kill on this and are not to be missed. (456 characters)

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. (847 characters)

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. (813 characters)
