Had at the new Armonk DeCicco's in a 14oz tulip glass.

This was billed as an experimental batch with some long # that began with a 4.... However I did not poach the beer list to get it exact at this new establishment.
Nice amber orange color with a solid 2 finger head that held up at 1 finger through the drink.
Smell was hard to discern at the bar but nice light malts and floral hops were there.
Taste was beautiful with a light not dominant malt and very well balanced hop character that kind of sneaks up on you in a very subtle way. A pale ale that finishes as a full hopped IPA, nice! Very approachable and kind of an IPA with training wheels in a good way.

Feel was sublime. Captain Lawrence look out.

Growler filled up at DeCicco's, Ardsley, NY location. Rushing Duck tasting this afternoon at the store. Always nice to taste some new beers and get to talk to the brewer to boot. Do we live in a geat beer culture or what?

Pours hazed lighter almond amber, tight, tiny bubble off white head. Leaves quality lookin strands of lacing.

Citrus infused, hop forward nose.

Tasty and fresh tasting Pale, hops bright and again on the citric side.

Nice offering from a promising new brewery, just on the other side of the river. Looking forward to trying more.

This is just what I'm looking for in a pale ale. Big, clean American hops: sharp citrus paired with spicy herbal rind. There's a hit of toasty malt in the background and the body's light enough to count as an easy drinker. I want more.

A lovely clear pale ale with a big, firm, head and nice amounts of clingy lace. Smell has a large amount of sweet bakery bread and piney hops. Nice fruitiness with caramel malt. Taste is so well balanced. Malt backbone is a good platform for the well done hops. Bread and toasted grains flow through. Lots of pine and hop oil for a dry oily finish that hangs and then evaporates. A biit of caramel lingering. Feel is smooth and lightly chewey. Carbonation is just right for sessioning. Dry quenchhing character makes this a highly drinkable brew. A very good and solid brew and I am looking forward to trying the other offerings from this new in state brewery.

On tap at O'Slattery's Pub in Delmar, NY.

This pours a golden yellow color, with a small head and lots of sticky lacing.

Smells pretty floral, with some light grapefruit, and pine.

This is exceedingly floral, with a soft and pleasant bitterness, and just a small hint of fruity sweetness. It's pretty simple but very tasty.

This is pretty light bodied, with a crisp finish.

Simple and super drinkable. Can't ask for much more.
