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.

3.46/5  rDev -12.8%

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.

4.23/5  rDev +6.5%

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.

3.43/5  rDev -13.6%

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.
