look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75
From 08/30/13 notes. Had this on tap at Ginger Man in NYC. Wasn't a big fan of their Dean Pacific NW beer, but have heard great things about their IPA's, so was excited to try this one.
a - Pours a somewhat clear orange yellow color with one inch of white fluffy head and moderate carbonation evident. Some nice lacing left on the glass.
s - Smells of pale malts, citrus hops, wheat, grains, bread, eathy notes, and light fruits. Nice nose but not overly hoppy or fruity.
t - Tastes of citrus hops, grapefruit, pale malts, floral notes, earthy notes, fruity malts, lemon, and bread. More hops than the nose had which is very nice, especially the floral hops. No bitter bite.
m - Medium body and moderate carbonation. No bitterness at all and easy to drink.
o - Overall a nice IPA, but not too hoppy and nothing mindblowing. The nose had a lot of malts to it and while the hops came through more in the taste, they weren't quite as strong as I would have liked. More like an APA to me and light and easy to drink, which is nice, but not on par with the IPA's coming out of Peekskill. Interested to try their other IPA's.

picked up a 12oz fill locally, enjoyed from a singlecut imperial pint glass.
brew poured a transparent yet murky orange with a finger plus of ipa head that dissolved leaving oily bubbles and speckles of lacing on the glass. nose is resiny floral hop...a bit of mustiness as well. taste is a slap in the face of candied caramel hop. very resinous and dank. big lemon and citris. body is nice chewy while still being soft and drinkable. overall a candied ipa. not my favorite ipa, but unique and worth checking out. cheers
