Served on tap the last week Clark's in Syracuse, NY was open. An interesting beer melding a few different styles. Has the look of an Irish Red, hop profile of an IPA and a slight tart funk of some sort of Brett beer. Color is a really interesting - bordering on brown and red, it feels like an optical allusion, changing colors as you look at it trying to decide the color.

The hop profile is a little strong for me personally. I prefer the balanced hoppy IPAs but this is a pretty strong blast of high alpha hops. Not really my thing.

The most interesting aspect, in my opinion, is the tart semi-sour smack that kicks in at the end. This could be done on purpose or the result of an infected batch, but I find it enjoyable reguardless.

12oz bottle out of the fridge poured into a pint glass. not too familar with this brewery, but i had a little of theirs at the buffalo brewfest. recieved this bottle from a friend who just got a sixer from a local consumers.

pours a really deep dark chestnut red/ brown color with a nice one finger of off white head. nice creamy retention, some decent lace.

hops are mostly noticeable, very perfumey and almost chemical/ paint thinner like. strange... kind of off putting. didnt notice it too much at first, but it gets real noticeable, real quick. mostly hops, a little caramel malt.

that strange paint thinner like taste is definatly noticeable in the taste too. very strange. other than that, it tastes like a decent well hopped red ale with lots of citrus and a little pine. a decent balance of caramel and slightly buttery malt. has some woody hop qualities. lots of sharp bitterness. but its hard to get over that odd taste.

good mouthfeel, hops real soak the palate in bitterness. medium bodied. maybe just a touch too much carb.

if it wasnt for that strange chemical, almost rotted vegetable taste, i would really like this beer and could prolly session this easily. im not sure on the freshness of this bottle, and i couldnt find much info on it, but i assume its gotta be somewhat new.

according to the bottle, this is brewed by the paper city brewing company in holyoke, MA for land mark brewing of syracuse, NY.

Pours a nice burgundy color with a two-finger head into my glass that fades quickly.

Piney, grassy hops greet the nose followed by biscuity malt. Impressive aromas!

Piney hops combine with buttery malt to create a highly desirable hodgepodge of flavors. I'm definitely enjoying it.

Lingering piney hops and buttery malt at the back. Very tasty. Nothing out of place.

I like this example. It's highly drinkable and I think they should dry hop it for even more hoppiness!
