Big thanks to Bboyshatter for sending this one along in the under 100 BIF Bottle poured into a pint glass produced a finger worth of white hear that settled to a thick lace. The body of the brew was a clear copper in color. The aroma coming from this is quite hoppy for a pale. I really like it in all its piney, citric goodness. The flavor is the same as the nose hop forward grassy and bitter. It had a light feel in my mouth and crisp on my tongue. Truly an easy drinking APA sessionable and refreshing I would drink it again

Hazy orange with a creamy off white head and lace. A light bready aroma with very light hops and medium malt. Medium malt followed by a light medium bitter. A medium bodied beer that is not bad at all.

Thanks to decaturstevo for this one.white head. Pours a clear dark orange with a Fruity malt almost a bubblegum aroma. Dry bitterness in the flavor with a touch of malt at the back. O.K. ,nothing special.

Not a big pale ale person, but trying to expand my horizons here. This was out of a bottle courtesy of some friends. Light, fizzy body, amber color. I felt it had a bit of an earthy aroma. Hoppy, with a more astringent finish. Seems typical to me of a pale ale variety of beer. Not bad.

Wow. Light bodied but packs a hell of a hop punch on the finish for what it is. On the nose you get some hops, but they really come through as the beer leaves your mouth. Get this one highly recommended. They say pale ale but it is classed as an IPA on ratebeer and I can see that to be honest.

Sampled at brewery 4-19-09. Aroma was very faint with a hint of citrus. Flavor was hops and malt with a bitter finish.

12oz bottle from Immy - thanks, Tim! Hazy straw gold pour with a lively head, which carries over into an active mouthfeel. Nose is more modest than is desirable, with faint floral hops and more malts. Flavor is initially quite malty, but is redeemed by an extremely dry and bitter finish, which I found quite nice and refreshing.

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 17, 2009
Draft at Green Leafe Newtown. Pours cloudy dark straw with nose of hopcitrus, caramel malt. Tastes hoppy, spicy, caramel malty, with finishing pepper and yesty notes. I love seeing unfiltered IPAs, and this one was complex and truly enjoyable from beginning to end, enough so that it made it through my sampling round to get its own pint. Well done.

A delicious pale ale. Brewed just a few miles away meant that I had to try it. Amber in color, full of fresh citrus aroma and hoppy after taste. A nice beer to enjoy on a Spring evening.
