This beer is one that my sister brought me from a trip to Upstate New York. Let’s see how it was.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Schroon Lake CDP is located in the center of the town of Schroon, at the north end of Schroon Lake, the water body. U.S. Route 9 is the main road through the community, while Interstate 87 passes through the western part of the CDP. The CDP extends north along US 9 to Alder Meadow Road and south to Kates Way. The closest I-87 access is from Exit 28 (NY-74) north of the hamlet or Exit 27 (South Schroon Road) to the south. US 9 leads north 8 miles (13 km) to North Hudson and south the same distance to Pottersville, while I-87 leads north 70 miles (110 km) to Plattsburgh and south 92 miles (148 km) to Albany. According to the United States Census Bureau, the Schroon Lake CDP has a total area of 3.68 square miles (9.54 km2), of which 2.89 square miles (7.48 km2) is land and 0.80 square miles (2.07 km2), or 27.34%, is water.”
Random: The brewery does not have a website, only a Facebook page.
The beer poured with a four finger, slightly off white head. It was fluffy and took awhile to dissipate and left a small amount of lacing on the glass. The body was a dusty orange color with a lot of floaties in the body. There was some carbonation visible. The nose had a decent amount of citrus notes. Orange stood out quite a bit. The taste also had a good amount of citrus. I picked up orange peel, orange segments and some grapefruit as well. There was a bit of malt as well. The body was really light and crisp with generous carbonation. The finish was quick with orange. This was a decent beer that I’m glad I got to try. Grab it if you see it.
