Rhode Island

4.38/5  rDev +12.6%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appears amber in color, a creamy off-white cap about a quarter inch and superb lacing. the way an IPA should look.

Smells of fresh hops, grapefruit, lemon zest. Very fresh and spicy.

Taste offers a good amount of bitterness initially, but a mildly malty backbone creates a perfect balance. Follows the nose almost identically but the malt is just a little more pronounced in the taste.

Between low and medium carbonation, velvety, just a little sticky. rather light bodied.

This is a good-looking, good-smelling, good tasting beer. It's flavor profile is not overly complex but it manages to showcase all of the desirable aspects of the style. Its light body would allow me to drink a lot of these. Two thumbs up

New York

3.68/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

appearance is a clear copper, pours two fingers of white head that retains reasonably well until eventually settling into a thin layer of head that retains throughout.

smell; citrus fruit, bit of floral hop character, molasses.

taste; mildly fruity, citrusy hop character, hint of resiny hop oil, touch of malt in the background.

mouthfeel; light/medium body, very carbonated.

overall; enjoyable enough but unexciting, it's a difficult task for an American IPA to really stand out and this beer proves just that.
