2.76/5  rDev -26%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A- Pours a nice clear light orange into my DFH glass. One finger head that disappears rather quickly but leaves a nice bit of lacing.

S- Nice notes of tangerine and fresh cut hay. Little grapefruit, some mango and pineapple. Not a big California citrus bomb, but it's definately there for the taking. Decent blend of pine and sweet malts.

T- Bitter citrus is the first thing, followed by a sweet malty tropical fruit. Fresh cut green grass, tangerine and grapefruit pith. For an upstate NY IPA... it's not bad.

M- Really bitter! I wish it had a touch more citrus fruit instead of citrus rind.

O- Unfortuanately it looks better than it smells, tastes, or feels. I wish they would release their IIPA! I've had that on tap a few times and it's really good. I was hoping this would be more like that... sadly it's not! Definately drinkable, but the bitterness overwhelms without letting the citrus and pine bloom. Really nice aftertaste after the bitterness lets go tho.

3.37/5  rDev -9.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

A: An aggressive pour into a pint glass only yielded a 3/8 inch, off-white head, which lasted for 5 seconds. Non-transluscent amber-orange color.

S: Sweet and malty, bordering on buttery. Overwhelmingly 'wild' aroma probably due to addition of Amarillo hops. There is no 'citrus aroma' as the label suggests.

M: Full and cloying, for an IPA. Not very crisp, but smooth.

T: For a beer toting 71 IBUs, the bitterness is very subdued, and provides a supporting backbone to overwhelming buttery sweetness. The initial burst of lemon is quickly overcome by a sweet caramel flavor. As the beer warms, there is a nuttiness as the sweet blends with the bitter. The bitterness will remain in the aftertaste for awhile.

O: It reminds me a lot of Bell's Two-Hearted, which I'm not a fan of in terms of what I savor when it comes to IPAs; I just don't like to taste caramel in my IPAs.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A: pretty clear; honey colored; 1 finger head that receded over a couple minutes to a thin film; sheets of lace;

S: more than anything, I smell strawberry; with tropical fruit in the background; there is another smell that I can't place that is a little off putting;

T: pine that stays all the way through the finish; citrus is there as well; well balanced; moderately bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: very drinkable; a little too much pine for my taste and I just can't place the smell;
