Pours a pale amber with a thin diminishing head. The aroma was of good floral citrus hops with some sweet malts. The taste was dominated by citrus hops with a decent malt backbone. The beer was light and crisp. This is a decent IPA, but far from the best.

Purchased from Total Wine Triangle Town Center in Raleigh. The label leaves a bit to be desired and is limited in its information. I would say that the taste is quite good indeed. Pours with a thin head and a golden hue. Very drinkable as it’s well balanced and not overwhelming. I would recommend this to a friend.

Bought a six-pack in Laurel, MD.

A- Poured golden with a slightly off-white head.

S- Hoppy, little malt.

T- Citrusy and hoppy, with a bitter astringent aftertaste.

M- Medium bodied, dry finish.

D- An uninspiring attempt at an IPA, nothing special about this beer.

Pours a light amber color with a 1/4 inch head that dissipated rather quickly, but left good lacing.
Good floral, slightly grassy smell, with some caramel notes. Quite appetizing.
Taste is well balanced, with a punch of hops, and then smoothness at the end.
Mouthfeel is good, not too oily. Something a could drink a few of, and quite often.
I've never heard of this brewery before. Nice surprise.

Fiddler's Green India Pale Ale from Utica, New York is a drinkable, probably slighty stronger than average strength IPA that leans on the English tradition. It pours a clear, dark amber body beneath an average-sized head of creamy white foam that holds well and leaves some nice rings of lace at the outset of the glass. The nose is fairly basic, but full, with grassy, mildly citrusy, and lightly floral hops floating atop a delicate bed of subtle, softly bready and caramelish malt. In the mouth it's medium bodied and smooth with a slightly restrained, fine-bubbled and moderate carbonation. The flavor balances the gently caramel-accented malt quite nicely with the grassy, leafy, and mildly floral hops. Underneath, a solid bitterness anchors it, and it finishes with a bold, lingering bitterness amidst fluttering notes of grassy and floral hops. It's not a knock-you-over-the-head IPA and I can appreciate that. Rather, it's meant to give a little more kick and some more hop flavor to the tastebuds while still remaining fairly drinkable all around. Nicely done.
