Poured a dark copper hue with a one finger foamy white head. There was good retention and sticky lacing.

The smell featured a balmy piney hop with a touch of juicy orange.

The taste consisted of pine and citrus with a crisp caramel and lingering bitterness.

The mouthfeel was toward the fuller side of the style with dry, bitter finish.

Overall a very nice hop forward IPA. Nicely made.

another 16oz fill nabbed at lake ronk (billed as just "west coast ipa" but has the 70 on the tap handle) earlier today...enjoyed from a snifter.

a - brew pours a transparent orange w a classic finger plus of frothy foamy ipa head from a hard pour. transparent and classic looking to style. head had nice staying power and lace is in line with big stringy clingy chunks.

s - nose sings hops. big powerful ripe fruit. not dank and not overhopped like i would expect. in fact this ipa smells fan-fricken-tastic. there are some interesting spicy almost incense like tickles on the finish of a big whiff. i didn't pick up these notes on a small sample i had at the time of the fill...this is promising.

t/m - as with most ipas that smell fantastic, the taste is a bit of a let down. here the hops take on a much more sticky dank feel and really coat your mouth. very resiny. the fruit is there, but a bit buried under the thickness of the hop. body although thick and chewy, feels a bit watered down.

o - west coast ipa is a big claim from a brewery that happens to fall fairly far east on LI (actually fairly far east for the US!)...but i have to say, this IS a west coast ipa. definitely doesn't fall along the lines of alpine or kern, but this is worth checking out for the east coast hopheads.
