Surprisingly not bad. Tasted like a tea to me but in a good way.

On draft at the brewery, in a pint glass.

LOOK: Clear gold with a soapy white head that leaves sheets of lacing.

SMELL: Peach, mango, passionfruit, and pineapple.

TASTE: Starts off with pineapple, finishes with passionfruit, mango, grapefruit, and apricot. Very sweet for an IPA, with emphasis on the aroma and hop flavors, but no bitterness.

OVERALL: While I much prefer some bitterness in my IPAs, this one excels at showing hop aromas and flavors without distraction. I wouldn't want this one all the time, but every once in a while it's a tasty treat.

FEEL: Medium body, good carbonation.

16 oz pour at the Old Toad in Rochester, New York.

One of the darker IPAs I've seen- a garnet, murky reddish color. 1 finger small head. Appears well carbonated, not a whole lot of lacing to be seen.

Smells great. Pine and citrus dominate. Some pineapple and grapefruit.

Tastes great as well. The aforementioned pine and citrus, plus a pretty prominent malt flavor. The malt flavor is very earthy, toasty, almost caramel-like. A very well balanced IPA, but would prefer stronger, brighter hop flavors over the malt. A sweeter IPA, when I tend to prefer drier ones. The hop flavors are very nice, nonetheless, and I quite enjoyed the pint.

Mouthfeel is appropriate for the style. Medium bodied, good carbonation.

Would like to look out for more offerings from this new local(ish) brewery.

Drank on tap in a pint glass. The color is dark orange and slightly misty with a nice big head on it that hung around for a bit. The smell is of tropical fruits backed with a nice grassy, malty aroma. Very fruity and not terribly bitter. A really beautiful balance between bitter and sweet which is something you don't necessarily find in a lot of IPA's. This IPA would walk out the door REAL quick every time I put one on at my old bar. Definitely worth checking out if you're an IPA fan.

Awesome IPA, citrusy and well balanced. I've heard a lot of hype about this beer and had high expectations, it did not dissapoint.
