I hate to trash a local beer but my Compadre and I dubbed this one the "lame but local" IPA and it is truly one of the worst IPA's I@ve tried in the past three years. No it's not Bud (if Bud was all I could get, I'd give up drinking entirely). But it tastes like a mediocre lager which is dry hopped to make it seem like an IPA. I'd be open to trying another of their beers but this one was a one legged Oscar Pistorious trying to win the 400 Meters (not happening).

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A: Nice copper color with amber highlights. Quarter inch head and some lacing on my pint glass.

S: Biscuit sweet bread, grapefruit/lemon citrus, crisp malt

T: Bitter green hops, some caramel malt complexity

M: Medium body, good carb

st: growler

overall: A very nice IPA, but a little too bitter for me. Reminds me of Green Flash West Coast IPA. I would fill my growler up with this again. I prefer the Black Rock Stout from X-Roads.

3.46/5  rDev -13.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Orange pour with a hearty beige foam. Plenty of sticky lacing on the pint glass. Cloudy look to the beer.

S - Pungent smell of hop resin. There are some spicy notes of pine and Christmas spice.

T - Flavors of light grains and spice finishes with a hearty bittering from a tar-like blast of hops. This beer shows how a high IBU on a standard IPA can be extremely bitter. A bit much for me actually.

M - Medium bodied beer with minimal carbonation. Finishing with a strong bitter bite makes this a beer only hop heads would go for a second.

O - Not bad, but it takes more than a one trick pony get me excited. For those who enjoy the lingering bitter taste in their mouth this is a decent beer.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

32oz (half) growler from Oliver's in Albany. Pretty excited to try this IPA from just a little bit south of here.

Quite amber in color. Small head, minimal lacing.

Sweet pine flavors on the nose.

Taste is of pine and some citrus hop flavors, with a sweet, but not too sweet, malt backbone. Hops hit quick in flavor and it finishes dry and a bit malty.

Mouthfeel is medium, nothing unusual here.

A very decent East Coast IPA here. Always happy to see more upstate NY beers.

The important thing has been hit a couple of times... This is a hop-forward and hop-ending beer. It's basically the same throughout, there's a big dose of hop-smell on the nose, the body is just enough to support the bitterness, and then you've got a long-lingering hop flavor on the tongue.

It's a little darker than I anticipated, but it's a nice golden in the 12oz glass.

If you like a west-coast IPA, this is a beer for you. If you don't, then stay away.

Comparable: Bridgeport Brewing's IPA was my immediate thought

But really, if you're going to be in or around Athens, NY, what else do you have to do but come drink the beer? Try this one, you know what you're getting and you won't be disappointed by it, it's fine enough for what it's doing.

Here is a recent review I wrote on draft:

I had a bunch of these when it was on tap at the Amsterdam Ale House on Manhattan's Upper West Side. This was one of the better IPA's (particularly new IPA's) that I've had for a long time. Very in your face hoppiness but well balanced as well.

Pale/Orange color. Good carbonation that sticks around for a while and leaves a bit of lacing.

Aroma is citus/pine and very strong.

Flavor as well was so great. Perfect amount of bitterness but very well balanced at the same time.

Highly recommend if you can find it.

---

I would say the cask is at least as good as the draft. Maybe better. Great brewery.
