Notes/Commercial Description:
Voraciously hoppy and not overly bitter. The Kind brings enormous aroma and maximum flavor. It's like taking a walk through a pine forest and ending up at a citrus farm. This beer brings joy to the world, one sip at a time.

Drank right from the bottle so no comment. Bottle has neat artwork.

subdued citrus and cracker malt.

Taste is nice citrus bite with a tough of earthy hops. A touch of bitterness. Malts less prevalent but tame the bitterness.

Liking the feel. Light to moderate with moderate carbonations. A touch dry. Nice.

Pretty good pock up here at a finger lakes resorts during a wedding. Nice IPA.

Notes are from 5/30

The Kind is a bright pale yellow in the outer parts with some clarity to it, getting hazier delving into the amber recesses. A very fluffy and thick cloud of off-white head rests easily on it at two fingers' height. Lace starts at the very top, forming some webbing and netting as the beer makes its way down the glass.
The nose is all about some dank, oily, resinous hops. This is piney, sure, but even more it's "sprucey." A balance of bready malts puts the hops in perspective.
As in the aroma, the hops put up some dank and resinous bitterness but, interestingly, it doesn't build up. Because of this, the bitterness seems to fall off at the end of every sip. Somewhat metallic and earthy tones conjure thoughts of English varietals.
Crisp and drying with moderate smoothness, the medium body ends up running a little thin.
