The first sip and smell are a little off, but it gets great.

And old school DIPA, juicy and bitter. With a clean malt bill, and at almost 8% it’s extremely drinkable. Citrus and pine dominate with hop bitterness on the finish. Awesome!

Again, another brewery JUST coming to this god forsaken land of Western New York. So late to the game, but now that it’s here...wow! Fresh growler tap, poured chilled aggressively to a tulip glass. In hindsight, a moderate to slow pour is in order, as this has some lively carbonation. Huge white foamy head that dissipates to a bubbling hot tub sizzle. Nose is immensely fragrant citrus and pine, sensed easily from two feet away. Clear amber, with tons of carbonation deep from the bottom...reminds me of PtE’s bubble pattern. Pause for Pliny respect...oh, I’d have to drive to Philadelphia to get another one...damn you Russian River with your spartan distro! First sips are all juicy, piney, grassy, hoppy bright tones. Totally balanced by a semisweet malt back end, that is dark like a hoarhound. Mouthfeel is just above thin, but stays full with a lingering hoppiness. Alcohol is in the above average range, but the crispness and flavor put it in the crushable range. I’ve seen reviews that this will fade fast, but one doesn’t expect a juicy IPA to live long, right? I could see this as a summer staple while I bide time for stout season!

Pours golden clear, appropriate foamy head. Aroma is faint - dank and hoppy. Very hoppy flavor - plenty of bitterness, piney hops. Carbonation is on point. I remember this beer a bit bolder: that being said, this beer is 2 months old. I will revisit with a fresher beer in the future. Several years ago, before the explosion of breweries, this was my go to beer. My palate may have shifted to the New England style of IPA.. This still a great west coast IPA.

Poured from a 12oz glass into a high sided pilsner glass.

Look is a clear orange amber with a white head.

Aroma is aggressive hops with a deep rich caramel malt.

Taste is a delicious combo of malt and hops.

Excellent beer.

Had a bottle at D'agnese Italian restaurant in Richfield Ohio. Served in a pint glass, this beer was a clear, amber color with a small white head. Good lacing and retention. Aroma and flavor featured citrus (grapefruit) and dry, biscuity malt. Good strong favor and nice level of bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp and rich with the balance favoring the hops. I would drink this one again.
