I had this beer last year when visiting family back home in Utica, recently was able to get more in a trade, so I thought I would review. Bottle date 2-11-13, so pretty fresh! Wow! Right away when I started pouring this golden nectar the aroma of fresh preserves assaults my nose, is it peach? is it strawberries? is it pineapple? It's such a complex nose it could be all three! The taste is exactly how a well done IPA should taste in my book, 2Hearted comes to mind. Overall a superb brew, pick some up, you will not be disappointed...

If you love pure liquid hops this beer is for you. If you like a full balanced beer tempered by a brilliant hop equilibrium, this isn't your beer. The malt and beer flavor itself is lost in the bombardment of piney, grapefruit hop overload. This should have been named hop tea.
