Where I bought it: Taste NY Store in Grand Central
How much: Five and change
Review: Ok. I gave the Taste NY store another try. And, I was happy to find a $12 bottle of Pinot Noir from a winery on Long Island. I didn’t buy it, but I was happy to find it. What I was happier to find was a Great South Bay Massive IPA.
I am an IPA fan to begin with; but aren’t most yuppie 30-somethings, that drive a Subaru and live in one of those “up-and-coming” towns in the Hudson Valley? You know, the ones that get featured once a year in the New York Times. Umm. Beacon, anyone?
“Oh, the charm of the pre-war factories converted to condos. It almost reminds us of Brooklyn or the Village. And, the commmute! Just an scosch over an hour and change to the City. Please.
Anyway, back to the beer. As someone who has been searching for an IPA geared towards my tastes – lots of hops on the floral side – this is my favorite so far. Very balanced. And, if you let it get a little warmer than when you pull it out of the cooler, it is worth it.
