This is a damn fantastic IIPA!! I am very impressed with this; absolutely awesome!! The beer pours a clear and brilliant dark golden color with a substantial tan head. The head leaves some nice sticky and cascading lace around the glass. The nose is well-balanced with a ton of spicy and citrusy hops. I also got a little earth and fresh-baked bread in the aroma. The body is incredibly smooth and drinkable. The flavors are also extremely well-balanced, with a ton of spicy and dry hop flavor. I got some notes of grapefruit, orange peel, coriander, lemon, lime, earth, light rye bread and a hint of alcohol. The finish is semi-dry with more dry and spicy hop flavor. This is a really incredible IIPA! I’ll be hitting up either the restaurant in Collegeville or the Wegmans bottle shop for more!

Not last season’s double IPA. Understated aroma and hop taste MASKS high alcohol content. Much easier drinking than previous incarnations. Still satisfying caramel and clove taste with little astringency. On draught.

Draft in Gettysburg. Super hoppy with a ton of bitter, herbal character. Alcohol not too noticeable but packs a punch afterwards. Great IIPA.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear copper with a medium sized white head, solid Retention. The aroma is dominated by the grapefruit skin and orange juice. The taste has a nice early bitterness, plenty of grapefruit and tart lemon, a lingering dry bitterness in the finish. I approve.

dmac (4045) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 9, 2011
22 oz bomber from Blue Dog Pub in Lansdale. Poured a great lloking rust colored amber body with a large full frothy off white head. Aroma was nice that has a lovely hop syrup sweetness, flowers, honey topped bread, citrus and candy. Full chewy body with soft carbonation and not much of an aftertaste or finishing bite, no trace of ABV on this one. Flavor unfortunately doesnt have the sweetness but more of a vegetable touch. Notes of dry grainy toast, green veggies, dry hops. Although the flavor drops off this is still a solid beer.
