On tap at Rattle n Hum, NYC. Poured into standard pint glass.
Slightly orangey golden color, nice thick head, and lots of lacing.
Pine and citrus hops. Smells really fresh and just alive.
Taste is great. Just the right amount of hops, toasty malt, and alcohol.
I had this brew a while back at TAP NY at hunter mountain. I remember this brew standing out amongst many and haven't really seen too much of it since. I really enjoyed it then and still think this is a fantastic IPA. Deff worth a try....in fact I may even say to seek this one out. Not many reviews here on BA for this, but I am not sure why. Go get one.

3.85/5  rDev +0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours a golden color with a puffy creamy head. Nice retention.

The aroma is floral. Grapefruit and pepper seem to dominate the profile. Some honey sweetness.

The taste is a little more bitter. The grapefruit is still there but it also brings the rind as well as some pine notes. A substantial hoppy flavor. The malt is bready with honey sweetness and does a nice job supporting the hops.

Moderate feel with tingly carbonation. Definitely bitter on the palate but there is enough sweetness from the malt to offset. Finishes slightly dry.

A well made IPA. The hop profile is not my favorite but it is still good. Good to see Greeport bottling their brews.

- enjoyed a few tap pours of this over two weeks. Pale cloudy pour with prominent citrus hop nose. Sufficient malt support for a fruity hop profile makes for a refreshing, enjoyable draught. Mouthfeel is soft and smooth.
Perhaps the bottle experience is distinctly different (based on other reviews).

look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.25

Thrilled this is available in bottle form for $11.99 a 6er. Attractive packaging.

Super oily, hop bomb, slightly flat sweet malt, hops vicious enough to overcome sweetness. Refreshing, throat clearing resinous. Marmalade with tons of fresh cut pine. Hops linger, slightly sharp, cuts over sweet malt. Better on draft, not quite as boisterous, slightly syrupy in bottle, still, excellent and will buy again. The hops kill on this and are not to be missed.

12 oz bottle, w/o freshness info to be had..Created "out east"... west coast style IPA

Pours clouded light, near golden amber...great looking tiny bubble head, froth, low sheeting, fine lacing splattered high up on the glass

Citric/pine nose on the pungent side

More of the nose on the palate, fresh and again pungent grapefruit, tropical fruits and pine resins..

Nicely done - bright and tasty. West coast IPA all the way. Well worth a try
