Appearance-Pours a tall soapy head with good retention and lots of sticky lacing. A slightly clouded orange amber beer.
Smell-Huge perfume of hops, citrus and pine. One of the best smelling IPAs.
Taste-Pine, citrus and spicy perfume hop flavors in equal proportion overlay a good malt background. While hop/alcohol/malt balance is reasonable the hops really steal the show here.
Mouthfeel-Moderately sticky mouthfeel from lots of hops. carbonation is on the lighter, smooth side.
Drinkability-So smooth and flavorful for a for a pretty high 7.5% ABV IPA. I could drink nothing but this beer if necessary. Very much a West Coast style IPA. Don't these guys know they're brewing in NY? An outstanding IPA.
