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

A suprising amount of hop bitterness.

Like it. Sort of seems like a cross between an English style India Pale Ale and an American IPA. Will purchase again. Seems like you can't go wrong with an ipa if there's a picture of a fish on the label!

Not much from the nose, but pleasant amount of bitterness on the palate. Medium copper tone and nice lacing on the glass. Nice carbonation leads to relatively thick mouthfeel for an IPA

Got in a BIF from beerloserLI. 12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear deep golden yellow color with a 1-2 finger fairly dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice dense soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of bright citrus/piney hops and moderate bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon zest, orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness. Moderate amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, lemon/orange peel, citrus rind, pine, light caramel, bread, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice complexity and robustness of bright citrus/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a very smooth, moderately sticky, and slightly creamy mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very nice standard C hopped IPA. All around good complexity, robustness, and balance of bright citrus/piney hops and moderate bready malt flavors; and very smooth and easy to drink for the ABV. A very enjoyable offering.

64 oz growler was poured into a snifter.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale yellow orange color with good clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Frothy lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Grapefruit, tangerine, citrus, herbal, and grassy hops followed by toasted, biscuity, cracker, and caramel malts.

Taste: Nice citrus, herbal, and grassy flavor with balancing malt backbone and chewy notes in the rear. Some bitterness and light alcohol too. Very tasty beer.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, a little chewy, light bitterness, medium bodied, medium carbonation, and a little booze.

Overall: Have to admit that every time I head to Long Island, I bring clean growlers to get filled up with local LI beers like these guys. Look forward to more Greenport in the future.
