Chromatic Ale... What else needs to be said. It tastes how it pours, looks and drinks. The most solid amber tj ever come out of the East End of Long Island. Amazing product with two amazing brothers who do it right. Do yourself a favor and find this beautiful amber as soon as you can.

12 oz can...w/o dating info

Reddish amber, lightly hazed, leaves fine lacing.

A hint of malt on the sniff, maple and vanilla coming to mind.

This is a malted up "IPA", more maple and more vanilla on the palate....works as a Scottish ale...

On draft at my fave oyster bar at 28 & 5th NYC - L+W
A) Pours hazy orange amber with a short white head that leaves thick lacing and a collar.
S) Aromas of bright hops, grainy malts and earthy yeast.
T) Follows the smell and becomes an earthy, fall cidery, pungent brew. Likeable - great with oysters.
F) Medium-bodied, moderate carbonation.
O) Maltier than other APAs. Great food & oyster beer.

I really enjoyed this beer. Got a growler of it out in riverhead. Great flavor, smokey, and still very refreshing for a summer day.

Well balanced. Not too hoppy, but a bit of a bite at the front end.

Clear darkish golden color with a full fluffy off-white head. Heavy bready and toasty malt character in the nose and taste. floral hops in the aroma, and a touch of grapefruit. Malt is bordering on bread crust in the taste but I'll go with heavily toasted. Slight lemony hop flavor along with some floral character. medium bodied and crisp, high carbonation, slightly sweet finish is masked by a bitter hop aftertaste.

Had two of these on draft at Vines and Hops in Riverhead, NY. Solid ale that is quite pale and aromatically hoppy. This is close to the IPA style that is the current rage. I thought this was overall tastier than the Speakeasy Prohibition Ale I had just finished.

A: The beer is slightly hazy orange amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short white head that died down, leaving thick lacing on the surface and a collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of grainy malts are present in the nose along with hints of earthy yeast.
T: Like the smell, the taste is rather malty and also has strong earthy notes from the yeast.
M: It feels medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer tastes a little maltier compared to other APAs, but is interesting and relatively easy to drink.

Serving type: growler
