32 oz growler filled at Yorktown Bev in Yorktown , NY

Pours darker almond amber, sturdy khaki head, lasts nicely. Then leaves decent looking high light sheeting and strands of lace.

I just get some malt and dusty hops on the nose.

Full bodied and fairly balance IPA....Maple malts provide a nice comfortable and tasty base, moderate and understated grainy hops add the intrigue and provide the interest. Smooth drinking and solid if unspectacular offering. (459 characters)

Port Jeff Brewing "Party Boat India Pale Ale" 7.7% ALC/VOL
12 oz. can, "06/04/14 IHC"... I'm assuming that's the canning date as it's quite fresh.
$2.70 @ Stinky Brklyn, 215 Smith St., Brooklyn, NY

Appearance: Hazy deep-amber / orange. Pillowy off-white head holds very well. Very good lacing. Seemingly moderate carbonation based on slow-rising tiny bubbles.

Aroma: Pungent, pineapple, pine, citrus, some malt. It could be brighter; and there is a kind of off-note that leaves it with a bit of a "Pine-Sol" character. Overall, still very good.

Flavor: More malt shows up, which is nice. Solid pine flavor backed by citrus fruit, pith, and pungency. The malt combines with the hops across the middle to deliver a sweet dollop of soft tangerine. Pungent and herbal in the finish. Solidly bitter. No sign of "Pine-Sol". Aggressively hoppy but somehow balanced - the moderate carbonation probably helps with that. Alcohol never shows, but you will feel it.

Mouthfeel: Wide, smooth maltiness with just a delicate tingle once it's been poured and warmed a little.

Overall: Credit for going to the level of intensity that the hops offer. It's a bit of a wild ride. Drinkability suffers, but that's a trade-off I'm willing to take. If you love hoppy beers this one should probably not be missed. (1,293 characters)

Very citrus based. Extremely drinkable. Leaves amazing resiny taste in the back of mouth after drinking. It's like a Florida citrus garden French kissed me. (156 characters)

Pours a hazy golden honey color with a frothy off-white head, lots of big bubbles. 3.75

The aroma is of tropical fruit hops. Lots of pineapple and some pine and grapefruit rind. Light bready notes from the malt. 3.75

The taste is more bitter than the aroma. More pine and resin come through. Some pineapple and apricot. Big chalky aspirin finish. 3.75

The beer has a moderate body with semi-soft carbonation. Quite bitter and dry on the palate. Lingering bitterness. 3.5

A quite bitter and dank IPA. Its a bit boozy but it doesn't come through all that much. 3.7 (577 characters)

On draft at The Lark, East Northport, NY.

Poured a hazy, yet bright brassy hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured balmy waves of tropical fruit and pine.

The taste consisted of a resinous upfront hop, offering spicy pine and round pineapple notes. Soft malts exhibited as well.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style.

Overall a tasty hop forward IPA. (433 characters)

On tap at the Lark, pours clear golden color with a foamy 2 finger head that faded and left minimal spotty lacing.

Smells and tastes of caramel, grapefruit, brown sugar, roasted grains, wheat bread, graham cracker, orange peel, piney hops, toffee, cinnamon and light spices that trails off with bread crust. The hops come through more in the second wave with sweet malt, citrus hops and some spicy floral hops.

Smooth and balanced, this is a fine local IPA. (460 characters)

Acquired from Cuzco so a big “Thank You” goes out to him. Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a thin off-white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains earthy hops, fruity citrus and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with some mild sweetness from flavors of caramel and citrus. Then a strong but not over-powering earthy hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty and brings a good balance. The after-taste is slightly hoppy.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, light-to-medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Tasty, goes down easily, not too filling, decent kick, good representation of style, this is a solid IPA to drink for a long time. (768 characters)
