Notes/Commercial Description:
Our first Stony Creek beers are (203) India Pale Ale and (860) India Pale Ale. Each mildly different yet truly American IPA’s. Packed with Cascade hops from Washington’s Yakima Valley, Stony Creek IPA’s have a thirst quenching citrus flavor and aroma. We balance this with light crystal specialty malts to bring you a deep golden beer that drinks easy, and won’t leave your taste buds wanting for anything.

Had from a bottle at the Mark Twain House beer festival in Hartford, CT. Poured into a pint glass. A nice American IPA with lots of Cascade hops in the smell and flavor. Light gold in hue with a thin white head. Smooth aftertaste and a solid IPA without being overly hopped. If you have a chance, try this!

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Pours medium dark amber with 1/2 inch white fluffy foam. Will lace a lot. Bready malt nose. Some bitter scent as well. Light caramel. Taste is full malty with a light bitter at the close. Some pine but buried below, Light on bitter, high on malt. Good blend.

Clearly I like this better than others on the site,

A- Rust color orange, cloudy. It has a nice creamy looking head. Looks are appealing.

S- Floral hops with a slight citrus accent in the background. Scent is equally as malty. Touch of breadiness. Slight toffee notes. Nice change of pace for an East Coast style IPA, but mostly a familiar smelling IPA.

T- The initial sip is of a citrus type juice (maybe grapefruit and orange mix), but finishes all florally. The malty taste is great. It really rounds out the hop flavor nicely. Not bready like in the aroma. Drying in the finish. Almost makes this feel ever so slightly chewy. It just dries out the back of the throat. Interesting, but not in a bad way. Just a good example of an East Coast style IPA here. No complaints.

M- Carbonation makes this taste crisp for sure! First sip is slightly watery with that juicy quality, but ends up with a medium mouthfeel overall. Not real heavy at all, but sitts a little too heavy to be quaffable.

*Overall this is a great example of an East Coast IPA. There isn't a dominating floral taste, but true to an East Coast IPA, it's certainty there. I'm starting to think Connecticut has some real nice craft beers and IPAs in general. I need to try/review more from the state.

Pours a light yellow with a thin head. The smell is mostly hops, seemed a bit one dimensional. The taste was very bright with a lot of floral bitterness from the hops but with some balance from the malt. The only thing I really didn't like too much in this one is the aftertaste is not very good and it sticks to your mouth and lingers far too long.

David really are diversified. It's like being in Massachusetts and knowing that you're going to know all types of people. But you don't really don't know who they're from Japan or Thailand or Korea. It's a normal typical ,very plain IPA but it's tasty to the top nice mouth feel nice love.

Thor probably wouldn't smash the glass and scream I'll try another. He probably say what else do you have an IPAs. And gentle hand the glass back to the waiter/ bartender

Definitely worth a try though
