12 ounce.

Pours a mostly clear amber gold, white lacing for a head.

Smells of fresh citrusy and floral hops over bready malt. Some clover honey.

Honey and bread malts, and a varied hop flavor that touches on citrus, floral, and woody.

Medium to full body with tingly carbonation throughout.

Very nice drinkable IPA. Above average on all points and really nothing to complain about. The 2X version is better but richer while this goes down a little smoother and would pair with food better. Definitely something that could become a go-to for IPA drinkers.

Solid up-front with a good taste. Goes down without a hitch but leaves a little empty spot on the back end. 7.5 in the engine so no complaints. Overall I like it but the double IPA they make is bezerk.

Consistently good IPA. I find myself stocking it in greater quantities and drinking it more frequently than the competing IPA's that I keep on hand. One of my absolute favorites. I'm happy to say it seems to be growing in broad distribution in Central New York. Distinct happy taste and smell. Fresh consistent taste.
