I read about this beer winning a New York State gold medal for IPA's and I was very skeptical but this beer is legit. Poured at the brewery, awesome atmosphere, great bartenders, a must visit if you're in the fingers lakes area. LT. Dan is a true east coast IPA, moderate hop, minimal malt, clean, crisp. Not a gold medal winner in my book but highly rated.

Bought a 4 pack from Beers of the World on 5/20/17. Served cold in a Duvel tulip/ Hazy peach with a stiff white head. Some lacing and foam residue. Aroma is powdered grapefruit. Taste is candied citrus peel. Mouthfeel is frothy and chewy. This is a solid, staple IPA. Love it and will buy more.

Pretty tasty but nothing remarkable. Easy to drink and was a great atmosphere in the brewery while sipping

On tap at War Horse Brewing Company in Geneva, NY.

This one pours a light and slightly hazy orange, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

When this beer was brewed by Custom Brewcrafters, it was pretty forgettable, and not good. This version, now personally brewed by War Horse on their own system, is great. It smells like moderate zesty citrus, some biting pine, and grassiness.

This is actually really nice now. There's tangerine, grapefruit, grassiness, pine, herbal flavors, and pineapple, with no discernible malt character. ]

This is super drinkable, with a crisp mouthfeel, and a normal level of carbonation.

This was a huge improvement over how it used to be. Cheers, War Horse!

Pours a pale yellow with a white head = good retention and lacing.

In the nose is big tropical fruit and citrus, orange, mango, backed by a nice floral bouquet and a decent malt hit.

Taste is citrus and tropical fruit up front hung on a thin bread malt backbone. Finishes dry.

I should knock off some points because this one seems to taste different depending on the day/batch. But at times it's top notch. I love the Earthy/Bitter Hop flavor reminiscent of umm, hemp. It's a nice change of pace from the Pine and Citrus IPA's taking over the world.

Tastes of Cascade, Magnum and Columbus Hops, with an excellent malt flavor.
