Tried this at the brewery.

A - Pours coppy with a high foam. Good lacing and despite the dark color there is clarity. Minimal carbonation visible.

S - Scents of fresh pine and oily hops is present. Has a bit of a spicy smell to it.

T - Initial flavors of citrusy sweet fruit gives way to a pure blast of hops. This is certainly hop foward, and a classic east coast DIPA.

M - Raspy, though very drinkable. This has a nice bitter bite at the end. For the style it is quite smooth.

O - A great take on the style by the local folks and I grabbed a growler for the Superbowl. I'll definitely try this again, as its likely to be the freshest IPA I can get my hands on. Try it, and Take the Oath!

Pours a clear amber color with a light brownish hue. The khaki colored head is tight and creamy looking and left some nice webby lacing on the glass.

The aroma is quite hoppy. Mixture of grapefruit, tropical fruit and grass. Nice juicy aroma. Some honey notes from the malt.

The taste is of a big bready malt with some honey and brown sugar sweetness. Grapefruit and pine is the hop profile that I am picking up. Some resin in the finish. More of an earthy hop profile than what I picked up in the aroma. Its a good hop profile but not my favorite as I prefer more citrus flavor.

Moderate body with tingly carbonation. Sweet on the palate but has plenty of hoppy bitterness to offset. Piney/resiny/asprin bitterness in the finish.

A well made DIPA. Not quite in my wheelhouse but I don't want to fault them on that too much. Its worth a purchase.

Warning: this is a high-octane beer.
Hoppocratic starts in a chalice glass, brilliant copper color, low head but sticks around for a long time. Lacy remains on the side of the glass.
Very mild grapefruit scent, taste is complex with plenty of hoppiness but also a bit of hop resin afterward. Very big taste.
Now I've got to visit GSB and meet the brewers!

On draft at Bobbique, Patchogue, New York.

Poured a medium copper hue with a one finger frothy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a resinous citric hop with notes of pine, grapefruit and orange.

The flavor was clearly hop forward with waves of balmy citrus. The moderate round malts were detectable but clearly an afterthought for the palate.

The mouthfeel was typical of the style.

Overall a very user friendly hop bomb. Very tasty.
