a fine copper hued ipa from the lake George area, probably the best or one of the best beers from these guys to date. it has a lacey white head with good retention, and a nose of bitter citrus hops, centennial for sure, and some others. pretty big malt body on this too, English and American pale malts give it some real depth. the flavor is massive, and the hops trump the malts, although balance is achieved here pretty well. I like the caramel sweetness just before the bitter kicks in, its quite the contrast. the alcohol is well hidden, and the beer feels like it should, with a fuller body and excellent carbonation that makes it feel really bright. this is a nice big ipa, not one I need to drink a sixer of, but a good couple of beers worth for sure. id like to see Adirondack move in this direction.

On draft at the brewery.

Poured a medium copper hue with a two finger foamy white head. There was good retention and lacing.

The smell featured a full blown piney hop and a light malt sweetness.

The taste consisted of an upfront piney hop spice. Certainly a solid malt acted as the substrate for this hop explosion.

The mouthfeel was slightly thin for the style.

Overall an intensely hoppy AIPA.

The beer comes in a orange color.

The aroma offers familiar American hops of grapefruit, floral, hints of pine, bready sweetness.

The beer follows on the palate with grapefruit, lemon, citrus peel, a bready sweetness in the middle along with some floral qualities and a light pine bitterness on the finish.

Pours a cloudy gold/blonde color with a huge white head into my glass. Reminiscent of "hop juice" in a sense.

Aroma is pretty strong after pouring it out of the bottle. A good balance of citrus in the nose with buttery malt underneath. I love the hop combination used here (Centennial, Cascade and Amarillo).

Huge citrus bite greets the taste buds, quickly warming up the mouth. Crisp and tasty, buttery malt are there as well. Wow.

The flavors do a great job of filling the mouth. At room temperature, the carbonation can be overwhelming.

Very enjoyable pale ale. More than I was expecting as well. I would definitely pick this up again if I were in that corner of NY State.

A-Cloudy orange, two finger head, well carbonated, some sediment and lacing.

S-Good deal of hops, citrus, grass, vanilla and grapefruit

T-Grassy, some pine, citrus, vanilla and some bitterness. There is something else that I can't seem to place though that is slightly off putting.

M-medium bodied, some carbonation and smooth.

O-A good IPA but that taste I couldn't place was slightly off.

Named after the 2nd highest peak in the 'daks. Golden orange with a frothy white head. Big citrus with a some biscuit malt peaking out as it warms. Big citrus and prickly pine dominate the platte with a little bit of tobacco leaf in back. Big, sharp bitter. Good stuff.

Poured into a pint glass from a 12 oz bottle. Beautiful full white head with nice lacing. The body of the beer is of a honey-colored golden hue. The smell of sweet pine wafted above the glass. I tasted grapefruit and tangerines on the first sip, followed by the requisite bitterness of the mixture of Centennial, Cascade and Amarillo hops. Crisp finish leaves me wanting another!

A: pretty clear; honey colored; 1 finger head that receded over a couple minutes to a thin film; sheets of lace;

S: more than anything, I smell strawberry; with tropical fruit in the background; there is another smell that I can't place that is a little off putting;

T: pine that stays all the way through the finish; citrus is there as well; well balanced; moderately bitter finish;

M: medium bodied; moderate carbonation; dry finish;

O: very drinkable; a little too much pine for my taste and I just can't place the smell;
