COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Deep golden color. Citrus and piney hop aromas. Assertive malt backbone supporting the overwhelming bitterness. Dry hopped in the fermenter with four types of hops giving an explosive hop aroma. Previously known as 21A-IPA.

Harrisburg Brewers Fest - Mild citric aroma - expecting more from the can. Very clear light amber. Well balanced, mild caramel mixes nicely with with the hops, not an onslaught, but real nice. A great IPA!

This shit is finally available in PA, now I don’t havta beg SF members to trade without getting a response.....Anyway, pours a pale yellow color with medium fluffy white head. Really nice floral hop aroma, like light mango, orange, and lemon. The taste is the same with husky tingle on the palate. Slight sweetness from the malt but not too much in the finish. Really good beer.

12 oz can courtesy of an extra from ThEpeeist. Thanks, Chris! Pours a lighter amber, mild haze, moderate white head, bubbly, laces some, dies to a small layer. Aromas are pushing citrusy grapefruit off the bat, sweet caramel malts, florals and a faint touch of pine. Initial is light bodied, pushing light citrus up front, moving to a biscuit toffee like caramel malt dominance on the backend. Light florals and fruitiness dance, but the maltiness seems to add a fair sweetness into the body and backend, which starts to take effect easily on a fairly thin brew like this. Warms as it goes down, preaching some light booziness, pine, and sweetness. More hops come in further into the body, but largely, the brew lacks a balance and a body that I want. Not bad, but falls behind the middle of the pack.

Can. Dark golden body with small white head that doesn’t stick around but leaves some lacing. Aroma is fruity, with orange and apricot. Flavor is nondescript bitterness, a little sweet. Some paper notes as well. Last not-fresh-at-all can of a six pack but I didn’t really care for it after the first can.

Cloudy golden with a medium white head. Aroma had hops, pine and malty notes. Flavour like wise. Finished bitter and sourish.

Draft, pours a nice golden color with a nice creamy head. Scent is very sweet in hops. Tastes very good and a nice sweet bitter aftertaste.

Hazy, light gold color. Frothy white head that leaves some spotty lace. Pleasant raw, high-alpha hop aroma--like sniffy hop pellets. Strong hop flavor that starts and ends--bitterness throughout the taste and aftertaste. In short, a little one-dimensional but a true IPA. Grapefruit is the descriptor I’d use for the hop bite. Typical body.

12oz can. Nice fruity, floral hops. Very fruity flavor, not all that bitter. Reminds me of an apricot danish. Pretty nicely balanced.
