On tap at Tap and Mallet in Rochester, NY.

This one pours a fairly clear, slightly hazy dark orange, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells quite dry, with pine, grass, white pepper, grapefruit rind, slight booze, and pineapple.

I expected this to be a lot juicier, based on the description. It's not really that juicy, but it does have a killer dry finish to it- slightly peppery, with lots of dry grass and resinous pine, with grapefruit rind and pith. There's some slight pineapple-esque character, but it's all bitter and dry hops here.

This is light bodied, pretty crisp and clean, with a good level of carbonation.

The first few beers I've had from Paradox have got me feeling pretty good about them so far. They're definitely a solid brewery.

Upstate NY coming alive in the past year or so with paradox brewery and common roots brewing putting out some fantastic brews! Really pleasantly surprised by this one. For me, the Taste and feel match up with a lot of the big name NE IPAs. Great beer from a smaller brewery in the Adirondacks of upstate New York. I'm glad we get kegs of this for growlers in Albany! Hopefully they can or bottle this at some point

A tasty double. Does not have strong after taste, but plenty of upfront! Great beer.
