While at the Colgate Inn, in Hamilton, NY I tried the Empire India Pale Ale It came in at 7.2% ABV, so it's not a light beer by any standard. It's an American IPA. It's heavily hopped w/ 6 kettle additions of Falconers Flight. The beer has a very big, floral nose as you might expect. Lots of citrus too!The malt was nice on this beer. Dark golden. Some nice earthy tones to it. Very, very drinkable. I had it with a cheeseburger. Very, very nice.
Also nice to see a local brewer growing!
