I may be a bit biased as this is a local brewery, but this is my favorite IPA. It's f'in awesome! Tons of hops with a great pine and grapefruit taste. Smooth going down and you can drink it all night. This award winning IPA is a must for anyone that likes IPA's.

on tap at my local spot, poured into a pint glass

a: light carmel/amber color. nice sticky 1/2" head with good retention. Reduzes nicely into lacing. Lacing rings the glass with each gulp.

s: grapefruit, bitter orange, caramel

t: nice caramel malt backbone gives way to cutting citrus bitterness boasting with grapefruit, orange and slight pine. Excellent!!!

m&d: medium bodied, drying mouth from the hops. Drinkable, but not really sessionable.

Glad to see another upstart brewer in this area to give the status quo on the run.

Cheers!!!

On tap at my store Press 195 in Rockville Centre Long Island and I am one lucky son of a bitch! Phenomenally balanced with an aggressive hop profile tamed by a malty backbone....one sip and you will want many more! Floral notes leave a great taste in the mouth that will only improve with another sip!

Such a really solid IPA. One of my favorite, just a plus that is is brewed locally and I can get it on tap at almost any bar I go to. Full of hops, but also has a nice drinkability to it, I could drink it all night, and I have. Has a full citrusy burst, almost everything you would expect from an IPA. West coast style but more balanced. Highly recommend.

Sampled at the tasting room which is running now. Then took home a growler and polished it away last night. Sweet Nectar IPA in the Cap to Hudson Valley region.

Extraordinarily quaffable and fruity IPA with a huge flowery nose and tons of tropical and citrus fruit. The beer gets a nice 1.5 inch foam stand with nice lacing. It is bright golden to light orange in color with great clarity. The beer has a fantastic balance of hop punch and malt backbone with a nice crisp bitterness in the finish. At 7% abv it is very drinkable and frankly hard to keep out of the glass. Smooth and medium light in body with a tremendous harmony of hop flavors.

Frequent growler fills will be required.

On tap for the first time at the Golden Rail Ale House in Newburgh. Awesome beer and fianlly got the brewery to bring in a few barrels.

Pours a nice clear amber with a decent layer of white head. This beer has hops in the front and hops in the back. There is definitely a citrus and floral aroma on the nose with a nice finish. This beer is definitely drinkable and with the numerous hops and dry hopping there is great balance and semi malty body. You will taste the pine at at the end with a nice biterness. I would definitely recommend this beer. Try it, Drink it, Love it. At 7%, you cant go wrong.

Clear light copper pour thin light off white head light sticky lacing ... aroma of floral and pungent hops little bit of biscuity malts as well .... taste is a nice mix of bitter citrusy hops and biscuity malts with some pungent hops floral and resiny oily mouthfeel ... a nice spicy kick of hops and abv hidden well the bitterness still lets the flavors get through and it lingers through the finish ... sessionable brew this is a great beer from an up and coming brewery had it on tap at the brewery. Would highly recommend trying this beer.

A - Pours a rich clear copper-orange color with a finger of white head atop. The head fades slowly down to a spotty layer atop the beer leaving behind some nice lacing in the process.

S - Aroma is full of lots of fresh citrus and pine hop aromas. There is also enough malt in the background to provide some balance.

T - Starts off with some nice citrus hop flavor and some malty flavors in the background. Through the middle some bitterness as well as some piney hop flavor comes through. The finish is a mix of some nice hop flavor with some slight bitterness as well as some malt flavor that lingers nicely.

M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth and crisp with very balanced mouthfeel. There is some nice light bitterness and sweet flavors but is also really clean.

D - Very drinkable. Really nice fresh hop profile that has a nice amount of bitterness. The hop and malt profile is really well balanced.

Shitty day at work at a growler of Outrage IPA waiting for me in the fridge...into my Crossroads pint glass.

A: Super clear beer. Lots of clarity. Copper color with some amber highlights. A quarter finger of white head with some lacing.

S: This is one of those beers that the hops fade super quick. I actually can notice the difference between the taste I had at the brewery and the growler now. Little grapefruit. Citrus. Piney. Lemongrass. The malt is also super crisp and fresh smelling. The nose is everything you are looking for in an IPA.

T: While the hops are there in spades I am more impressed with the fact that there is a complexity of malt here as well. The taste is fairly close to a celebration ale in a lot of ways. Little caramel malt in there as well. Really nice complexity. Finish is nice with some lingering bitterness.

M: Medium body. Carbonation is nice. Medium body.

D: The whole time I was drawing a comparison to Celabration. Really nice beer overall. I hope this will be a nice beer and the local community will latch on to it. The brewery is in a wonderful place and the people are super nice. Really nice IPA. If I had to tweak anything I would want it a little drier but I like my IPAs that way.

Poured from tap into pint glass at Terrapin in Rhinebeck, NY.
Pours a hazy-ish golden color. Nice head with great lacing.
Smells of fruity piney hops...really nice.
Taste is of fruity, piney, cotton candy hops. Mild in the hops bite, but full in flavor. I have wanted to try this for a while, and it was fantastic. Great east coast IPA - full of fruity flavor with just the correct amount of bite. Worth every sip of this brew. Fantastic.
