A clear amber-copper color this IPA displays modest white coverage on top with decent striations of lace in retreat. The nostrils encounter a skunky lemon bread. A very nice blend of yeast and hop, sort of a pilsner-IPA idea. The taste buds enjoy a much more hop heavy citrus with a sharp bite that is followed by the skunky bread theme as you finish. This is nearly light bodied with a pretty aggressive carbonation that delivers a crisp, refreshing feel. At times some lemon cake sweetness sneaks through but for the most part this is a bitter bread IPA. Definitely gets the job done and will keep your hop hunger satiated!

In a pint glass this beer was a hazy orange color. The head was white, on the smaller side, and left a little bit of lace.

Strong citrus aroma, a little bit of pine. Some sweet malt.

A lot of grapefruit in the taste. It faded quickly, however, and gave way to some piney resins. Some caramel, some biscuit.

Moderately hopped, not too aggressive.

A- Fairly cloudy pretty orange color with a small head that recedes quickly but leaves nice lace.

S- Orange marmalade on a biscuit, with some lemon, thyme and a touch of fig fruitiness. Not entirely what I expect from an AIPA but not bad.

T- Up front is kind of a bland tartness with a little bit of the biscuit from the nose. Finishes long and smooth with strong piney bitterness.

M- Thin and crisp with medium carbonation. This is right where it should be for the style.

O- This is a very drinkable IPA with pronounced bitterness but not a whole lot else. The hops should be more pronounced in both the aroma and flavor to make this one anything more than drinkable.

Growler filled at DeCicco's Ardsley, NY location.

Pours lightly hazed medium amber. Lite tan head, leaves better then average high bits, blobs and streaks of lacing.

Fruity hop nose, melons, limes, pineapple and hoppy goodness.

Flavorful AIPA, more fruit, more fresh hop notes. Lime, honey and hopped up spice come shinin' thru.

Nicely done. Very enjoyable ale. Went great with some spicy cold noodles with chicken and peanut sauce

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid two fingers of white head that slowly fade into a thin creamy layer.

Smell: A very hop forward aroma with lots of grass, pine, and citrus esters. Big upfront presence of earthy, floral, herbal, and citrus hops. Hints of wet grass along with some pine resin. Citrus hop hints of orange, lemons, grapefruit, pineapple, and tangerine. Pretty dank and bitter smelling. Some backing pale malt with hints of grains, cracker, and caramel. Very hop forward. A decent aroma.

Taste: Like the aroma suggests, a very hop forward and earthy taste with lots of grass, pine, and citrus esters. Upfront earthy and floral hops with notes of wet grass clippings and dank pine resin. Weed like taste. Citrus hop notes of orange peel, lemons, pineapple, grapefruit, and tangerine. Background pale malt presence with notes of caramel, grains, and cracker. Really hop forward as expected. Pretty decent taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Somewhat wet and oily. Bitter and fairly drying finish.

Overall: A pretty decent take on a IPA. Very grassy, bitter, and hop forward but its nice.

Pours a pale copper hue with white foam forming at least two fingers worth of head. Aroma has a muddled mix of hops a bit of dank earth and citrus notes but nothing really pops here, there's also a slight metallic "copper penny" note to it as well. Faint fruitiness from the malt base a bit of even keeled biscuit malt. Flavors more muddled hops a bit of dank, earthiness, with super high alpha bitterness in the form of citrus pith/rind. Not much sweetness to balance it out, maybe some pale biscuit malts. Mouthfeel is slightly slick with hop oils, even keeled well attenuated feel no residual sweetness carbonation cleans the palate with each sip. Lingering hops between sips, I like my more tropical/citric IPAs that have been out in number this still has a place in the DBF, but it honestly won't make my regular rotation.
