I heard the recipe for this beer changed, so I decided to try it again. My previous score was 2.98 and man, that beer sucked.

This is nothing like the original recipe. Clear hop influence. Nice crisp profile. Clean. Probably the cleanest I have yet to have from the BG in both a visual aspect and flavor as well. Nice consistent bitterness that isn't over the top or overly bold and good pine tones; all of which makes for a fairly pleasant and easy drinker that is not overly obnoxious.

Not the same beer I had in the past. Vast improvement. Brew Gentlemen is getting interesting, it seems.

L: straw, hazy. White head about 1"
S: big tropical fruit.
T: follows smell. Sweet pinnapple/ grapefruit up front. Some bitterness on the back.
B: on thinner side. Sticky and plush.
O: spot on. For a flagship, it is top notch. Sweet and bitter make a nice balance ale that stands up with the best of them.

On tap at Brew Gentlemen in Braddock, PA.

This one pours a super hazy golden orange, with a small head, and a good amount of lacing.

Smells like pineapple, mango, and grapefruit, with a slight bit of malt, and some pine.

This is firmly in the NE-style IPA tradition. This has a firm bitterness, that provides a minimum of balance to the huge juicy blast up front- nectarine, peach, and mango, with a hint of grapefruit. There's maybe a tiny bit of malt, but it's barely noticeable.

This has super soft and juicy mouthfeel, with a good level of carbonation. It's again quite drinkable.

This is the best beer I had from Brew Gentlemen on my visit. It's almost all that I want in a NE-style IPA.

These guys are making some amazing beer in Braddock PA, I hope everyone in western Pennsylvania knows how lucky they are to have a young brewery of this caliber in their neck of the woods.

This is a big juicy hazy tropical east coast IPA. The kind you could drink for days that turn into years and never grow tired of. Pours the color of grapefruit juice, lightly carbonated with excellent lacing. The best of any Brew Gentlemen beer I've had.

Aromas of orange, a faint touch of lemon, and lots of peach and ripe mango. So well balanced, no alcohol heat at all, malts are soft and bready but definitely in the background. Some of what they're doing seems heavily influenced by Tree House in Monson MA, which is comparing them to one of the absolute best breweries in the north east. I have a new can't miss spot on my next trip to Pittsburgh.

This beer is better than the ratings would lead you to believe. BG is producing world class New England style IPAs and it seems like no one even knows about them. This is a hazy, juicy masterpiece of hops rivaling the best of the best. I'm looking at you Tree House and Trillium. This is just slightly less awesome than their double IPA offerings, but it deserves more credit than its been given. Good work BG, I will be returning every time I visit Pittsburgh.
