a fine copper hued ipa from the lake George area, probably the best or one of the best beers from these guys to date. it has a lacey white head with good retention, and a nose of bitter citrus hops, centennial for sure, and some others. pretty big malt body on this too, English and American pale malts give it some real depth. the flavor is massive, and the hops trump the malts, although balance is achieved here pretty well. I like the caramel sweetness just before the bitter kicks in, its quite the contrast. the alcohol is well hidden, and the beer feels like it should, with a fuller body and excellent carbonation that makes it feel really bright. this is a nice big ipa, not one I need to drink a sixer of, but a good couple of beers worth for sure. id like to see Adirondack move in this direction.

Pours a cloudy gold/blonde color with a huge white head into my glass. Reminiscent of "hop juice" in a sense.

Aroma is pretty strong after pouring it out of the bottle. A good balance of citrus in the nose with buttery malt underneath. I love the hop combination used here (Centennial, Cascade and Amarillo).

Huge citrus bite greets the taste buds, quickly warming up the mouth. Crisp and tasty, buttery malt are there as well. Wow.

The flavors do a great job of filling the mouth. At room temperature, the carbonation can be overwhelming.

Very enjoyable pale ale. More than I was expecting as well. I would definitely pick this up again if I were in that corner of NY State.

A-Cloudy orange, two finger head, well carbonated, some sediment and lacing.

S-Good deal of hops, citrus, grass, vanilla and grapefruit

T-Grassy, some pine, citrus, vanilla and some bitterness. There is something else that I can't seem to place though that is slightly off putting.

M-medium bodied, some carbonation and smooth.

O-A good IPA but that taste I couldn't place was slightly off.

Enjoyed in a pint glass

A: pours a perfectly clear golden color with a slight orange hue and plenty of carbonation bubbles, pours with more than two fingers of white head that is quite foamy with large bubbles and lingers for a long period of time, leaves a ton of lacing all over the glass
S: really great hop scent, plenty of grapefruit character and a nice floral and earthy note
T: begins with really fresh hop notes then moves into a bit of smoothness in the middle and ends with a great bittering depth that really lingers long on the palate, just what i like to see in an IPA
M: gentle carbonation, leaves the mouth feeling dry, almost a bit too dry but it is what is to be expected with an IPA
O: they really blew me away with this one, sure you can tag me as a culprit of homerism in this case but i dont care this is a damn good brew, great IPA taste

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.

12oz bottle into a tulip. I've had their IPA on tap at the restaurant, but this is a different beer. Always glad to try something local.

Golden and slightly hazy, with a fluffy head that laces nicely.

Smells of pine and juicy grapefruit and orange.

Taste is mostly juicy citrus hops. Some malt backbone here. A bit thick, but not sweet. Overall, the flavor is quite good, if somewhat understated and muted in the finish.

Mouthfeel a bit thicker than average, but not off-putting.

Overall, this is a tasty, citrus-y IPA, and one of the best beers I've had brewed within an hour or two of me. I will definitely buy this again, and I hope the brewery is successful in their relatively new bottling operation.
