COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A medium bodied India Pale Ale, dry hopped to provide a very pleasing flora, citrus aroma. Well balanced between malty sweetness and hop bitterness. A very thirst quenching IPA.

UPDATED: MAR 27, 2016 Can pour into nonic pint glass from Epsom Circle Market. Aroma is mix of citrus over malty bread backbone. Appearance is cloudy gold with a fair amount of sediment in suspension, even without pouring out the last sixth of the can. No head, only white ring and minimal lacing, occasional large bubble. Taste is moderately sweet malt base with mild citrus--a little bit like unfinished wort. Palate is medium bodied with sticky texture and lively carbonation (a little sting). Overall, I think this may have gone over a bit, which may alter aroma/taste, so will look to re-rate in the future. Either way, the appearance really detracts from the overall experience. Better to just drink it out of the can so you never have to look at it.

Pretty dark amber into glass. Big big webby/crochet lacing. Large uneven bubbles. Smells of muddy/earthy wet hops and dark grains. Palate more of the same, overly bitter and sloppy. This is not good, what is wrong with everyone?

UPDATED: JAN 10, 2016 From a can. Gold color with a decent citrusy aroma. It is very easy to drink but I am getting a weird aftertaste that I don?t care for.

Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Easy going English style IPA. Very drinkable, and that counts for something. I typically don’t care for the under hopped English version of this style, but this alright.
