3.43/5  rDev -11.6%

SRM 13-14 (cloudy copper) with occasional carbonation. A quick cascade produces one inch of frothy off-white foam that turns rocky, leaving rings of lace within a few minutes.

The Mutt is surprisingly malty with a sweet, honey, and light pine aroma as well as light citrus.

Bitter with light sweetness, this one opens with caramel, biscuity flavors and some pine tar. A dry, lingering finish is bitter with a hint of mint and surprisingly little citrus flavor.

The medium body presents well from a Dogfish Head fisheye pint glass, while ample carbonation and alcohol cleanse the palate of the woolly texture.

This is a decent beer to be enjoyed after work on a cool summer evening. It would likely pair well with pulled pork.

This would be a decent IPA, however it falls well short of an IIPA. Either way, the malt profile is far more prominent than one would expect from any of the IPA styles.

First of all I know this is under "IPA" but I cant seem to find the DIPA "The Mutt"which I'm drinking so I'm putting it under this.

Serving type - 1.6 fl oz. bottle

Best Beer on the face of the planet. If you are in the Rochester, NY area, get it.

Bottle purchased from Wegmans in Rochester, NY.

Pours a glowing orange, with some visible carbonation, a one inch head, and sticky lacing down the glass.

Smells strongly of citrus, with a little bit of pine.

This is a pretty seriously hoppy IPA. Lots of juicy citrus flavors, with a little bit of piney and soapy flavors as well. The malt is mild for me, despite the other reviews I've seen for it.

Medium bodied, sticky mouthfeel at first that ends crisply. Medium carbonation.

One of the better local Rochester IPAs.

We pour a brew of glowing pumpkin orange into our Founders snifters. It holds a three finger head of chunky crème brûlée colored bubbles, showing excellent retention. Wiry ridges of lacing are left around the glasses as it slowly bubbles away. No haze is noted, but the tiniest microspecs of sediment are seen floating about. Carbonation appears to be moderate. The aroma gives a big caramel base, supporting thick tannins, pale malty sweetness, biscuity butters, eucalyptus and aloe greens, piney and citric hops, white sugar sweetness, cedar woodiness, spicy booziness, and phenolic plastics. With warmth comes more toast, and fruitiness of apricot, discarded banana peel, and red apples. Our first impression is that the flavoring is quite metallic to start, but does maintain that smooth, malty base begun in the nose. As we sip, the taste opens with heavy caramels and pales, raw plant resins and pine sap, soapy and citric hop cleanliness, mineral bitterness, alcohol, buttery oiliness, and dryer sheet chemicals. The middle peaks with soy sauce saltiness, cleanly pale and lightly amber malts, baked beans, aluminum metallics, black pepper, fresh cotton, continued soapy hops, sweet bubblegum esters, and more biting plastics. Tins, brief sweaty dog musk, caramel revival, popcorn butters, bitter hibiscus plant greenness, piney, soapy, and citric hops, gravel, deep molasses bite, and hearty alcohol wash through the finish, helping to finally balance out some of that big base graininess. The aftertaste breathes of alcohol, bitterly soapy and piney hops, gravel, plastic peanuts, dried oregano, hugely bittering yeasty metallics, vanilla airs, minty freshness, green stick resins, tannic breakfast teas, parchment paper, graphite, pseudo-woodiness, and heavy caramel stickiness. The body is medium to full, and the carbonation is full, but not overly prickly. The mouth is left coated and frothy, with oily slickness to dry into an equally as mobile astringent chalkiness. Warmth came for certain, but the abv was appropriate, and the beer drank easily.

Overall, what we liked best about this beer was its decidedly soapy inclusions through the taste. While you may find the first sip surprisingly metallic and puckering, the flavor tends to significantly clean up, blend, and smooth out with subsequent sipping. The hops are hearty and fresh, helping to scrape the massive caramel and pale malt base from the far reaching corners of the mouth. Otherwise, the nose is inviting and warm, and the feel is crisp, inviting, and pleasantly carbonated. If you’re looking for a local, heavier, more caramel and sweetly laden beer, you shan’t be disappointed, but if you’re looking for a light, easy sipping DIPA to drink the night away, you might want to take a step back.

I had this beer on tap at Jeremiah's Tavern. This is my favorite IPA in Rochester!! Whenever I go out and see it on tap I order it every time. I also enjoy the Scotch Ale a lot as well. Rochester is turning into a great beer town and Rogers is on the top of my list with what they are producing!!

3.04/5  rDev -21.6%

A - Pours a medium orange gold color, crystal clear, moderate carbonation, and a thick, white, soapy looking head that sticks to the glass.

S - Sweet caramel malt with faint pine and citrus.

T - More malt forward than balanced. Lots of sweet caramel toast from start to finish with a little bit of alcohol poking through from time to time. Citrus midway through and ends with some pine/citrus bitterness that slightly intensifies after the sip - very, very faint resin coating in the mouth.

M - Full medium body.

O - Too hoppy for the lover of British IPA's and not hoppy enough for the hop heads, sits somewhere in the middle. There's no bottle date so it could have some age on it but there's no way to tell.
