6 oz sampler on tap at their Camp Hill brew pub.
slightly hazy orange beer /light bronze, with a thin beige head.
The aroma is sweet with primary notes of caramel, but also light notes of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel as well as a nice presence of grapefruit and light touches of grass. Mild hops.
The grapefruit and grass lingers for a long time in the aftertaste.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
DATE TASTED: November 15, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint.. OCCASION: recovering from the family football game--I threw three INTs!--and a much less enjoyable Browns loss... APPEARANCE: rather light. bronze/copper body that shows reasonable effervescence; nearly clear; slight, fuzzy off-white head that holds to a swampy halo ... AROMA: resinous first impression; pear, wheat grass, some citrus, and melon; very little malts to speak of.... PALATE: fizzy, light and lively at the teeth; short at the finish, with a muted, astringent mouthfeel; medium-bodied and drinkable... TASTE: the resin is clear, mingling with citrus like grapefruit and orange peel...the maltiness presents itself more in the taste than in the nostril or palate; a reasonable sourness ensues... OVERALL: aptly named, ably fulfilling its hoppy promise, with a serviceable 6.2 ABV and a pleasant if not unmemorable profile...

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.
