Captain Lawrence Brewing Company Captain's Reserve Imperial India Pale Ale

The Captain Lawrence Brewing Company is in Pleasantville, New York.

This beer pours a dark golden yellow, light amber-orange in color with a short head of just off-white foam.  The aroma is grassy, fruity, light grapefruity, slightly floral with a note of malty grain.  The taste is fruity, tart, cherries and citrus, a touch of floral, clean and brassy, with a very bitter and dry finish.  An interesting take on an IPA, and while flavorful and enjoyable, the extreme bitterness will limit how much you have in one sitting.  I love the bottle shape.
