Fair hops bitterness up front, but the finish is surprisingly watery and weak. Poor example of the style. Particulate.

Half full ipa. Served on tap at Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford.

Pours a Medium dark amber. Pine nose. Citrus too. Nice Juicy IPA . Full flavored hop malt. Bitter hangs around and drives flavor. Well balanced all around. Real good. 375 375 425 4 4

Actually, a Rye India Pale Ale.
Description (from halffullbrewery.com): An approachable IPA that provides an adventurous experience from start to finish. This medium-bodied beer has earthy notes, a piney and spicey hop character, moderate bitterness, and a dry rye finish that conceals it’s high alcohol content. The perfect balanced IPA for a true “hop head” or newly minted crafted beer drinker who is looking to explore!
Brewed with:
Rye, Wheat, Special B, Brewers Two-Row, Pale Malts
Magnum, Columbus, Cascade Hops
40 IBUs.

On tap at Backstage EDL in Torrington, CT.

Beautiful dark golden/copper color with think white head. Slightly hazy.

Aroma is piney, earthy, even some malt in the nose, nicely balanced.

Taste is hoppy right off the bat. But not super abrasive. I get pine, and some 'forest floor' earthiness going on balanced by a decent amount of malt. Not like an English IPA, but just done really well so you know it's an American IPA with a nice hop presence. I didn't know it had rye in it until checking the website. I could not detect it.

Overall, nice mouthfeel that isn't too rich or creamy, but just right and somewhat lip smacking.
