Notes/Commercial Description:
Simcoe and Galaxy hops are melded with a honeyed malt base to produce a libation of eyebrow-arching and cackling goodness. The nose yields honeydew, bright pit fruit and a note of dank earth, while the flavor adds unrelenting bitterness with just enough relief in the long finish from grainy, slightly sweet malts.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Growler from the Elmwood farmer's market in Buffalo, NY. Poured into my Southern Tier tulip.

An IPA with copious amounts of Galaxy and Simcoe? Sign me the hell up! Pours a beautifully cloudy, hazy, pale orange-yellow. 1 inch of head, sticky lacing all the way down.

Smells dank, resinous, juicy, and wonderful. Tons of fruit- orange and pineapple primarily, with some pine sap.

The taste is similar. Juicy, fresh tropical fruit notes are kicked back by a genuinely big hop bitterness. Coats your mouth with sticky dank hoppy goodness. No malt character that I can detect. Just a hop explosion here, really. It helps that I am drinking this very fresh.

Medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel, well carbonated.

Possibly the best IPA brewed in Western NY. Three Heads The Kind and OT 20 duke it out with this for supremacy. The hop combination really leads to some great flavors.

Pours a hazy yellow from a growler filled at the farmer's market. Nice 1\2 inch white head leaves nice lacing. Wonderful, citrusy and dank nose. Bitter up front with a slightly sweet finish that balances the hops very well. Perfect hop flavor. Carbonation is spot on for style.

Overall a delicious IPA and at 6%, easy to drink. It's hoppy but wont destroy your palate. Only flaw I see is the haziness which is really just nitpicking.

Multiple samples at the nano-brewery. Yellow bodied and some head. Very lacy. 50-60 IBU and felt higher. Fragrant. Galaxy and Simcoe lends a nice citrus orange. Would be a good cask, as overcarbonated. A tweak or two and can be really tasty and really drinkable.
