Picked this up today while visiting my parents back on Long Island. Poured into a Brooklyn pint in my childhood kitchen. Starts with a big white head that doesn't last . Features a cloudy golden body and a nose of herbal hops.

Nice balance in the sip with more of a noble hop bite matching up against the medium bread malts. Bitterness isn't high but does show staying power through the finish. Not overpowering but satisfying enough for what it is. More mellow than a lot of the style, this is tasty enough but no hop bomb.

- 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).

Darker than expected and much maltier than expected too. But there's just enough of a hop bight to offset that sweetness. Minimal bitterness. I agree with the "stale pine" comment. Well balanced, though. More of an English Style IPA, and a fine one too. Very drinkable.

Pours a light golden, decent head and lace. Mostly fruity and citric aroma. The taste also was on the sweet and citric side, very tasty and with a moderate hops profile. Medium to light mouthfeel, pretty smooth and easy drinking.
A nice solid IPA, non complex and unspectacular, but enjoyable nonetheless. Hapy to support a local brewery.

look is a pale yellow lager like appearance, - smell has an alcohol liquor smell with hops - taste is a very dry extremely dry boozy hop fueled in your face start lots of pine and sap with a quick crash, feel is of moderate carbonation lingering aftertaste with a dry finish, dry throughout, what type of hops creates this dry feel?

L - moderately hazy glowing orange. Fluffy head with good retention.

S - sweet malts and citrus. Stale pine.

T - thin hops pole through in addition to the nose. Pretty typical malt-forward IPA. Taste seems a little thin. Lacking that punch.

F - surprisingly light for 7.5%. Has some of that syrupy texture, but not much.

O - an OK IPA. Drinkable, but nothing to write home about.
