Notes: “Here is your country. Cherish these natural wonders, cherish the natural resources, cherish the history and romance as a sacred heritage, for your children and your children’s children." - TR

We have as much love for the land as ol' Teddy; this is why we spend so much time finding the perfect raw materials to use in our beers. "The Big Broadcast" features the finest ingredients we've come across, including a whole bunch of locally-grown hops. Striking the perfect balance between the bitterness, hop flavor, malt flavor, alcohol, and aroma, "The Big Broadcast" drinks smooth (maybe a little too smooth). Enjoy this beer in a glass or from the can, indoors or out, just enjoy.

Malts: 2-Row. Munich. CaraPils. Hops: Mosaic. Centennial. Chinook. Food Pairing: Fried Chicken with White Gravy. Teddy's favorite. Album Pairing: Farm - Dinosaur Jr.

Very good West Coast style IPA. Lots of citrus comes out of it and goes down easy despite the high ABV. This is another good brewery in the Finger Lakes region.

Very hazy yellow but not turbid. fat cream colored head that lasts. Just a slight bit of color on that malt. Nose is sweet pineapple. Soft fresh herbs, mint and citrus peel. A bit of hop dankness. Orange and a floral like rose petals.

Drinks so light for all the abv. Like fruit punch. Just a touch of bitterness form alcohol to give it away in the finish. fruity with firm pale malts. peppery spicy hop with it's bitterness finished it . A softer bubble. No real bite. Medium dry. Sweet, delicious like a beer popsicle.

L: Hazy orange amber with a nice white head. Moderate retention; great sheets of lacing.

S: Juicy red grapefruit, orange zest, orange marmalade, big biscuit malt, pine sap.

T: Huge orange and grapefruit flavor. Orange peel zest and oils aplenty, with the tart sweetness of pink grapefruit juice throughout. The malt backbone is a big biscuit, leaning towards caramel, but never too sweet. In fact, it ends very dryly with some soft pine needle and tons more citrus peel. Dangerously easy to drink.

F: Medium-full-bodied, smooth and rich and moderately carbonated. Smooths on the tongue, with some residual stickiness of hop oils.

O: This is a great WC-style DIPA! Stupidly easy to drink at over 9% and chock full of hop goodness.

On tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a light and half-way clear orange, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like orange and pineapple, with some slight pine, and a bit of hop oil.

This is another solid new one from War Horse. They have really improved lately. This has a nice mild pineapple, tangerine, and grapefruit flavor, with a firm bitterness on the finish.

This is lighter bodied, much more so than the actual ABV would suggest, with no indication of the ABV, and a good level of carbonation.

This isn't quite as good as Lieutenant Dan, but it's still quite solid nonetheless.
