Dated 1/31/18.

Dark orange juice in the glass, opaque. Two fingers of thick slightly off-white head that sticks around. Sour yellow grapefruit rind, blood orange peel, herbaceous grassy notes with a very faint lemony bubblegum at the end. Grassy notes combating with the rind/peel on the first taste, with a vibrant earthy bitterness. Resinous medium body that is quite bright. This would be a great IPA for windy summer day. Can't wait to have another!

I went to Seymour in Greenfield where something simply called "Half Stack" was being served. Not sure if this is the same drink. The beer had a slightly amber appearance to a mostly hazy, yellow look with patchy lacing and a thin head. The beer was pretty grassy; very pungent. Taste followed the nose with a semi sweet, almost honey like smell. Medium body. Overall, I loved the appearance and aromas.

I pretty much like like all single cut. Not as dank as some but solid all around.

Poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a sturdy murky semi-dark copper/orange color with a finger's worth of white foamy head that slid off at a moderate pace. Some messy lace wound around the glass.
The aroma had a nice blend of sweet grassy to tropical hops. A touch of bitter rind-like hops came in subtly over some earthy hop features.
The flavor was moderately sweet and seemed to bring in a little bit of dankiness not smelled in the aroma. Noted biscuit malt notes. Then the aftertaste was mild and somewhat tropical with some of the dankiness and biscuits.
The mouthfeel was about medium bodied, perhaps slightly under, yet having a very nice sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt good. Nice danky to tropical mobile sweet sort of finish.
Overall, pretty nice AIPA that I could come back to.

On tap at the Red Dove in Geneva NY. Pours a slightly hazy light amber with a persistent off-white head. Initial impression is citrus, tropical fruits, grass, and a slight earthiness. Mouthfeel is smooth and medium; carbonation is perfect. Finish is slightly dank and bitter, but not unpleasantly so. Quite enjoyable.
