12 oz bottle poured into a white wine glass - fridge temp - 2011 bottling
Appearance: Golden orange color beer. 3" tall off-white head that has great retention. Very pillowy head that lasts and lasts. Ecellent lacing.
Smell: Nice, bright, floral aromas of honeysuckle, rose, grapefruit, and some pine needles. A touch of malt sweetness. Excellent.
Taste: This could be a perfect IPA taste. Here's why: The beer is 7.5% alcohol and you can taste just enough of it. The hop flavors are citrusy & floral with notes of pine in the background. I get lots of grapefruit, some light melon, honeysuckle and just an overall HOP flavor. The brewers nailed this beer.
Mouthfeel: Again, perfect alcohol feel, light and airy in the mouth. Smooth drinking with an acceptable amount of bitterness. Malts are in check to balance everything out.
Drinkability: This is a perfect American IPA that I would love to duplicate in my own brewing efforts. Good for those up in New York who have quick access to this cheap, refined, archetypal offering.
Serving type: bottle
