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.

From 01/12/13 notes. Had this on tap at Pony Bar on the UES in NYC, 14 oz. pour in a pint glass.

a - Pours a somewhat clear orange-amber color with one inch of bright white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of citrus hops, grapefruit, pine hops, fruity malts, resin, and some caramel malts. Lots of citrus and pine, I like it a lot.

t - Tastes of citrus hops, pine hops, grapefruit, tropical fruits, fruity malts, caramel malts, and some floral and earthy notes. Taste is super hoppy again and super bitter; quite nice.

m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. Big bitter bite to it.

o - Overall a really nice DIPA. This one has a lot of pine and grapefruit hops to it, and a bitter bite in the mouthfeel. I liked it a lot and would definitely have it again.

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).

On-tap at Mugs Alehouse, Brooklyn, NY

A: The beer is clear amber in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down and left lacing on the surface and a thin ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are strong aromas of citrus and pine resin hops in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste has a strong mélange of hoppy flavors but at the same time is well balanced with notes of caramel malts. A light to moderate amount of bitterness is present.
M: It feels medium-bodied and very smooth on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and goes down very smoothly. There’s a good amount of hop flavors but it also shares some similarities with the maltiness of an amber/red ale.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A - Pours a dark gold color with a generously creamy, one fingered head. Very bright and very clear.

S - Lots of vibrant grapefruit and pine. Malt takes the back seat and the aroma suggests this is a very hop forward beer.

T - No complexity at all, just a straightforward West Coast style IPA with a generous amount of resiny grapefruit and pine. The bitterness is a little oily and leaves a lingering resinous coating of grapefruit peel for several minutes.

M - Medium body and silky smooth carbonation.

O - I wish I could get this beer in PA, it's hop forward and "delivers the goods" for us lupulin lovers - a must try. The aroma is good but where this one really shines is the taste. Reminds me more of the West Coast, nicely done and I will be seeking this one out again next time I head to Albany.

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.

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.

Poured from tap into pint glass at Terrapin in Rhinebeck, NY.
Pours a hazy-ish golden color. Nice head with great lacing.
Smells of fruity piney hops...really nice.
Taste is of fruity, piney, cotton candy hops. Mild in the hops bite, but full in flavor. I have wanted to try this for a while, and it was fantastic. Great east coast IPA - full of fruity flavor with just the correct amount of bite. Worth every sip of this brew. Fantastic.

A pint at the Dinosaur, Troy, NY on 2/8/12

Clear and golden with little head or lace. Piney hop aroma. Lively carbonation and medium body. Great balance between the hops and malt. Somewhere between and East coast and West coast IPA. Earthy hops with a bit of pine, contrasted with a slight caramel sweetness. Nice strong bitter finish.

Clear light copper pour thin light off white head light sticky lacing ... aroma of floral and pungent hops little bit of biscuity malts as well .... taste is a nice mix of bitter citrusy hops and biscuity malts with some pungent hops floral and resiny oily mouthfeel ... a nice spicy kick of hops and abv hidden well the bitterness still lets the flavors get through and it lingers through the finish ... sessionable brew this is a great beer from an up and coming brewery had it on tap at the brewery. Would highly recommend trying this beer.
