Picked-up a twelve-pack at Long Ridge Wine and Spirits in Plymouth for about seventeen dollars. Have had before, but not for a while. Big fan of Troegs, but never think to get it. Would buy again.

Draft

A- pours a clear golden color with a one finger creamy white head, good retention and lacing

S- citrus and piney hops, sweet Brady malt

T- pine resin and citrus up front, followed by some tropical fruity notes. Sweet malt mid-palate, finishes with more citrus and pine

M- medium body and carbonation leads to a creamy mouthfeel and finish

O- easy drinking, straight up IPA

I had this in a pint glass more than enough times but also had it in a tulip several times as well. The only difference I actually noticed was the fact that the head lasted longer in the tulip. The appearance was a decent orange to brown color with a one finger foamy head in both glasses. The smell was citrus hops, kinda coming through in a tropical sort of way and as it warms, there’s a nice melding of the caramel malts entering in. The taste was almost a perfect bittersweet gentleness running over my taste buds. There was a nice bittersweet aftertaste leading into a nice dry citrus finish. On the palate, it sat fairly light but also showed a decent quality of perhaps coming close to medium in the body. Still, I say there was a nice sessionability running about this one. The carbonation pummels my mouth into submission with the nice harshness of an AIPA but still the gentleness of a DIPA. Overall, really nice AIPA well worthy of coming back to when I can get it.

look and smell are probably tainted because i'm drinking out of the can. Not sure that i'm tasting anything negative, but it is a month past the "best by" date on the bottom of the can. i like this beer. purchased at AJ's beer warehouse in rochester (probably actually henrietta) NY.

A: Yellow? Nearly Clear? Was this an imperial IPA or a Pabst? No Head with slight lace and only a bit of carbonation.
S: Very little! Maybe a small bit of juicy fruit.
F: Watery. Slight bitter. Standard IPA foam. Touch of lingering bitter at the end.
T: Smooth. High powered. Slight raisin. There are hints of grapefruit and tar. Well balanced.
O: I always have a hard time reviewing these types of beers. There is nothing to really stick out as a flavor I'd like to revisit, yet I wouldn't mind another.

Poured from 12 oz. bottle into pint glass. It pours a clear, golden-amber color with a finger of foamy, milk-white head and lacing. It smells of malt, grapefruit, lemon peel, tangerine, caramel, pine needles, and floral hops. The first taste is strongly grapefruit and lemon with subtle caramel and tropical fruit sweetness. The hops bite hard and it finishes crisp and bitter. It features lively carbonation and the 7.5% ABV gives it a kick without being overwhelming. Overall, this is a very pleasing American IPA. It packs a lot of flavor and is easy to drink. It's another quality brew from Troegs.
