Moustache bods; if you are going to charge Other Half/LIC/Finback prices for your beer in New York, it best be as good....its not. This must be the sixth Moustache beer ive tried now, fooled by the can design, but not fooled by the run of the mill product inside. Im all for supporting local breweries but you have to do your part and produce beer on the level of Sand City or Barrier....unfortunately this is more on the level of Blue Point.

Served in a snifter glass from the can.

Appearance: Almost a semi-cloudy amber color with medium to heavy bubbles to the body. off-white head rising just about a ull finger's length with a vigorous pour.

Smell: Floral scent, simple and light. The temperature could be playing a role in the aroma...smells good its just how light the beer puts a small frown on your face.

Taste: A malt bomb, floral taste with a touch of citrus sweetness to go with it. Complex piney feel which is quite bitter but serious thirst quenching.

Mouth: How sticky the brew is is amazing, extra bubbly coming off a medium to heavy carbonation and yes...it's sticky.

Overall: Nice pick up with definitely smashed the palates, better deal than some of the other garbage I picked up the oter day which I will leave for another conversation. Always in a glass Salud!

Poured from 16oz can into a speiglau IPA glass.

Look is a deep orange amber with a fluffy off white head.

Aroma is lots of earthy hops with a slight citrus note at the end.

Taste is extremely malty alcohol with a streak of bitter hops through.

No canning date.
10.5% !!!
Moderate pour yields a one inch slightly off-white head over a dark amber body with nice sticky lacing. Nose of pine, some floral attributes, and slight citrus. Taste of pine, a little tropical fruit, and boozy, candied fruit which I've experienced in other high octane IPAs. Can you say dank? Can you say resin? Can you say "Uncle?" Very nice feel on this and overall a fine job on a monster IPA from out on the island. Serious hop heads only need apply!

Deep amber and clear, finger of off-white foam settled into a filmy lid and trailed some lace arms behind. Aromas of caramel and pine. Tastes resinous, tacky, and piney... Sweetness cut off by the shellac of pine that quickly coats the tongue. Has a round feel, medium-bodied, with a little bit of polish and a little bit of a sticky chew. 3/9/17 canning.

Featured hops include Amarillo, Calypso, Comet, Idaho 7, Lemondrop, and Nugget, with Idaho 7 used in late additions and dry hopping.

Hop forward and had an AMAZING end taste. Deep in citrus and pine notes. Great job! Like running naked in a pine forest and smelling the freshness around you.
