It's difficult to know where to begin. First had on draft a couple months ago at Primanti Brother's in Wheeling. Almost immediately became my favorite IPA. Beautiful golden color that is slightly hazy. Incredible harmony of flavors with nothing overwhelming the other. Grapefruit, lemon, lemongrass and floral notes all in there. Labeled as a 2X IPA however it's not heavy duty by any means. Very drinkable. Never pass this one by.

Presentation: A 12 oz long neck bottle with their signature 2x on it and a hop green colored label. Simplistic at it's best!

Appearance: Golden, some sediment (I think that this is usually filtered and I'm not sure why I have sediment) color in a Pub glass. Good carbonation.

Nose: Hops whispering fruit. Nothing overwhelming, which is prefect.

Taste: Pine and pineapple up front and personal. A nice strong, dry bitterness follows to balance out the taste/malt.

Overall: A local NY favorite of mine. This beer is underrated in my opinion. It's a double IPA for anyone who appreciates the taste of well balanced hops with an honest amount of alcohol. I very good choice for the IPA lover. Cheers.

best ipa ive had in some time , nice looking cloudy orange, with some sweet malt smell mixed with some dank resiny hops. tastes awesome, immediate lemon sweetness, followed by some grape fruit bitterness, and orange peel. great swings between sweet and bitter flavors ,heading towards a dry finish.

Had on nitro. Not fond of the nitro making it a bit hot on the finish.
