Had a pint on tap at the brewery while consider how to fill my growlers. I'd describe this as a West Coast IPA as it has big citrus hops with a lighter body for the style and a biting finish. The hops character has a mix of grapefruit and citrus rind with piney undertones that lingers and lingers. The body is more drinkable, but the flavor is rich enough that it's a pleasant beer to sip and savor. Check it out.

1/2 growler fill from the brewery

nice looking clear amber brew, respectable looking head, film and lace left on the glass.

citric hop nose

more citrusy hop notes all over this one.

Quality IPA, worth a try if you see it at your local or if you make it to the brewery

Like I said, Single Cut is where it's at in NYC for quality IPAs. Very smooth, bitter yet balanced. This is delicious stuff.

On tap at the Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

Pours a a dark gold, a little bit of amber, with a quarter inch head, and a good amount of sticky lacing.

Smells very piney and floral, with a distinct grapefruit backbone.

The taste is similar. This has a very spicy, grassy hop flavor, with a some grapefruity juiciness. There's not much in terms of malt flavor here, it's maybe slightly biscuity if I really try hard to pick it out.

This is medium bodied, with a crisp, and quite smooth and drinkable mouthfeel. There's a moderate level of carbonation, nothing too prickly.

I'm always happy when kegs of these guys come up to Rochester. This was very tasty.

A: hazy gold ale under a few fingers of ivory foam that left some lace down the glass as it receded

S: citrus and tropical flowers and fruits, undercurrents of fresh-cut grains and danker resins

T: stays bright and floral - crisp and citric for the most part; malt grains edge some of the bitterness and provide a bit of sweetness

M: smooth and medium-weight, lots of bitter pith; moderate carbonation

O: a solid IPA - full of freshness.
