Pours a gorgeous and clear gold with a rocky 3 fingers of fearsome foam hanging for the haul.

Mmm citrus and floral hop wafts atop neutral sweet and some really righteous light tart.

Definitely an interesting bitter hop here, really tasty, it fronts some nice medium strength hop notes of citrus and light pine that dance with the soft caramel and tart bread that also come to play. It ends juicy but the bitter is just a hint and is a clean drying linger to balance it.

Med. carb., clean on palate, medium viscosity, pretty much all in style for sure. Highlights the taste profile well, decent finish. Does get just a tiny bit of rooty herbal cling going after a couple pints.

Not the same old pale is what this is about, things have been switched up nicely to showcase the basics of the style and how good they can be. Love you Rushing Duck, thanks for coming east.

Growler filled up at DeCicco's, Ardsley, NY location. Rushing Duck tasting this afternoon at the store. Always nice to taste some new beers and get to talk to the brewer to boot. Do we live in a geat beer culture or what?

Pours hazed lighter almond amber, tight, tiny bubble off white head. Leaves quality lookin strands of lacing.

Citrus infused, hop forward nose.

Tasty and fresh tasting Pale, hops bright and again on the citric side.

Nice offering from a promising new brewery, just on the other side of the river. Looking forward to trying more.

This is just what I'm looking for in a pale ale. Big, clean American hops: sharp citrus paired with spicy herbal rind. There's a hit of toasty malt in the background and the body's light enough to count as an easy drinker. I want more.

A lovely clear pale ale with a big, firm, head and nice amounts of clingy lace. Smell has a large amount of sweet bakery bread and piney hops. Nice fruitiness with caramel malt. Taste is so well balanced. Malt backbone is a good platform for the well done hops. Bread and toasted grains flow through. Lots of pine and hop oil for a dry oily finish that hangs and then evaporates. A biit of caramel lingering. Feel is smooth and lightly chewey. Carbonation is just right for sessioning. Dry quenchhing character makes this a highly drinkable brew. A very good and solid brew and I am looking forward to trying the other offerings from this new in state brewery.
