3.65/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - Dark golden color with a high white foam that settles quickly. Clear and some lacing.

S - Has a sweet smell of honey, and a scent of fresh flowers. Hop scent is more an herbal smell than bitter.

T - Sweet flavor with a crisp finish. Lightly malted, and an mild hope profile.

M - Nice easy drinking pale ale. Leaves a dry feel in the mouth. Some carbonation is noted.

O - Simple beer that does the job for what it is. Good beer as the spring comes back to Long Island. I'm noticing the English influences on the Port Jeff brews.

22 oz. bottle served in a Pipeworks snifter. Received in a BIF.

A: Pours a golden orange color with a white head forming on the pour. It recedes to a thin ring that leaves some splotchy lace down the glass.

S: Pale, slightly sweet malts. A little cereal graininess to it. Grassy hops that a little on the skunky side.

T: Same as the nose. More of a cereal grain malt with some definitive skunky flavors to the hops. Minimal dank and grassy flavors come out as well.

M: Light bodied, medium carbonation with a solid drinkability.

O: A little too skunky in the hop department for me. I needed more assertive malts to make this a true English style pale ale.

On-tap at Idle Hands, New York, NY

A: The beer is hazy light yellow in color and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down, leaving a large patch of bubbles on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Moderate aromas of floral hops and fruity yeast are present in the nose along with some hints of sweetness.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of floral hops with notes of fruit, hints of honey and bits of sweetness.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and is quite flavorful for the style.

Love finding more local breweries popping up on Long Island. Great session-able pale ale with nice balance with the flavors. Not too sweet and not too malty. Could be a TAD hoppier, but I am a hop head; EVERYTHING can be hoppier, lol. All in all a great beer you don't have to think too much about and instead can just enjoy anytime, anywhere.

Growler filled in Yorktown, NY

Pours murky lighter, brown hued amber.

Lite tan head, of the none too exciting variey. Leaves minor lace.

Carbonation on the low side adding to drinkability.

Nose of mellow sweet malts and faint dusty hops.

Flavorful brew, soft hops, waves of malt. With a hint of lime and a nice long dry finish.
This tastes and feels like you are sitting in a London pub enjoying their hoppy IPA. Hops dense and drying but not punching you in the face with bitterness. Nicely done

Serving type: growler
