This beer is insane. The apotheosis of HVB achievements and the style they’ve essentially created and mastered (sour lactose laden blended hoppy beer with fruit purée). Just explosively flavorful and at the same time beautifully balanced. Not gimmicky at all, just a tremendously drinkable and appealing beer. Paired this with handmade Shanghai dumplings and noodle dishes and the moderate sourness and fruit sweetness, with the subtle hop bitterness in the finish, cleansed the palette and held its own against another tremendously flavorful offfering. Wow.

Really great beer. Perfect hazy look, tight pearl head. Smell is sweet grapefruit and spices. Taste is wonderful grapefruit, hint of honey, with a creamy mouthfeel and a citrus twang on the finish that is awesome.

Edit: I'm even jumping back in here to say that with further inspection (drank four now) I truly think this is my favorite fruited beer of all time. The grapefruit is perfectly sour with the light hoppiness and the honey adds the perfect tinge of sweetness and decadence in the body and mouthfeel. An absolutely absurdly good beer.

Super hazy NE IPA body with a fizzy, off-white head that fades to a sparse, soapy residue atop. Aromas of pineapple, fruit punch, sweet citrus. Loads of fruit character in the flavor. Tangy acidity with a light body. Prickly carbonation a la soda. Thoroughly enjoyable.

This one pours a super hazy and quite milky looking yellow-ish orange, with a small head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like lime and grapefruit creamsicle, lemon ice, and grassy hops.

This is honestly amazing. These guys do this style crazy well. There's some lactose and oat creaminess, with sweet lemon-lime tartness, with grapefruit hoppiness, and honey.

This is creamy and delicious, with a thick and rich mouthfeel, and a good level of carbonation.

Nobody should miss HVB. They make some great beers.

Hudson Valley continues to impress with this delicious entry into their sour/brunch IPA series. This one falls somewhere in the cross-section of Crush! orange soda, melted Creamsicle pops, and fresh squeezed ruby red grapefruit juice. It's offers both tartness and sweetness, but the two keep each other in check wonderfully, resulting in an extremely intense yet easy/pleasurable drinking experience. Ride of bright, creamy citrus flavors is capped on the finish by a delicate, somewhat grassy, somewhat minty bitterness that is likely the contribution of the Motueka dry hopping. The feel is medium with even, soft carbonation, accenting the refreshing drinkability of this beer. Another delicious creation by these alchemists!

Just a fantastic beer in every way. I went to HV for my first release and came away impressed by everything from the brewery, the people, vibe and most importantly the beers. All were excellent and this was the best. So juicy - smooth and full of citrus goodness with just the right amount of sour tartness. You get that nice juicy IPA hop hit up front and then the wonderful sour/tartness on the back end. Quite possibly the best IPA I had in 2017. Well done.
