My favorite of the beers in the ABC sampler. More east coast than west, but still a decent IPA. Good amber/orange color, pleasant pine hop aroma, and a nice sweet-then-bitter finish.

Not the best, not the worst. Very standard and worth going to if you want a basic ipa. Tap

Pours out a copper color with a small white head. Aroma is of some caramel malts, light grassy and citrus hops not much going on. Taste is rather mundane, caramel, toast, light grass, rotted citrus fruits,

Picked up a six pack for my own flight at the house. Significant improvement from pale ale but probably still less than average for me.

Pumpkin Orange color little clarity shows shadows. No head retention slight bog appears from carbonation. Aroma is malt forward, a honey like sweetness from the hops as well. The hop flavor is minimal mostly spice and some slight gummy citrus aromatics. The beer is malt forward not my cup of tea for an ipa. It does have a good level of drinkability and the bitterness appears to be well rounded.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Camp Hill brewpub. Pours a clear gold color with a 1/2" white head that disappears leaving a thin film. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine and resin with a hint of malt. Medium body, taste leans more to the hop side than the malt but not overwhelming. Dry finish. Not great, but I've had worse.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Transfer from BA review on 9-23-12-
Poured from bottle into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a clear golden-orange color with a huge white head. The head fades rather slowly as it is quite thick and leaves a nice level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell - The aroma is heaviest of a biscuit and pine nature. Mixed with these aromas are some lighter notes of a citrus and earthy nature.
Taste – The taste begins with a biscuit and bready base with a nice dose of citrus hop flavor. Initially it is also sweetened with some lighter fruit flavors up front. As the taste advances it dries out some with more hop flavors come to the tongue. At the end, some heavier notes (but not too heavy) of a pine and earthy hop flavor come to the tongue, leaving a slightly bitter flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the medium side; decent creaminess with a light chewiness. The carbonation is on the average side as well. Fairly nice for the hop flavors but maintaining a good drinkability.
Overall – A decent IPA with some nice pine flavors.
