COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This India Pale Ale is an exciting beer with a floral in aroma and an incredible hop flavor. The maltiness is increased (over a regular pale ale) to help balance the aggressive hop usage. This contributes to the higher alcohol content as well.

Draft at the Gettysburg brewpub. Served in a pint glass. Golden amber color with thin white head. Aroma of some malt and surprisingly little floral and piney hops. Taste is also light hops and some sweetness. Very lightly bitter. Seems to lean more on malt then hops for an IPA, I dunno.

berkshirejohn (4534) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2012
12oz bottle from Wegman’s, King of Prussia, PA. A slightly hazy amber with a thin translucent head; rich floral hop aroma with a touch of citrus; the flavour is quite restrained at first, but then the hops kick in assertively giving an extremely dry finish with some warming alcohol. A pleasant IPA, not as extreme as some West Coast examples, but very drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub. Clear gold pour, white head. Aroma of light piney hops, biscuity malts. Taste is slightly bitter, not very hoppy at all. It’s alright.

Pours a light golden color with a bright white head that dissipates quickly. Not as aromatic as I would expect for an IPA. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

chicowv (455) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - JUL 30, 2012
12 oz bottle thanks to Casey: Pours a light yellow with a thin white head and little CO2 release. Aroma is floral hops, hay and doughy yeast. Taste is slightly bitter on the front, light and kind of sour. Not the best flavor. Easy to drink on the front, but bitter and too dry on the finish. Not that great but easy enough to drink; not really an IPA - more like a pale.

Elwood (3223) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - JUL 13, 2012
Serving: Draft. It pours a decent gold color. The nose has light florals and a subdued hoppiness to it. Florals and light toast on the tongue. Light body.

Draft at the source. Pale clear yellow color. Aroma of freshly cut grass taste is very bitter grass.

GSH1976 (207) - Delaware, USA - JUL 1, 2012
Pours a semi cloudy golden color. The aroma has me a little perplexed. There is a hint of malt but there is something else there that I cannot pinpoint (honey?). The body is light (very light for an IPA). The taste is mild with a little malt presence, minimal hops, and slight bitterness. This is a very easy drinking beer, especially on a hot day, but there are MUCH better IPAs out there.

12 oz bottle. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, mild floral aroma. Taste is very mild floral hops, quite sweet, with a little bitter bite on the back end. Blah

This in the body, slightly watery. Typical of what I’m seeing from this company. However, they nailed the big hop aroma, but fell short on the thin taste.
