A decidedly hoppy and bitter, moderately strong India Pale Ale (IPA). The beer emphasizes the hop aroma and flavor white muting the hop bitterness. Loaded with Cascade hops that provide Floral and citrus notes. Itís called India Pale Ale because it was a hoppier, more alcoholic version of the typical ale shipped to British troops in India in the 1800s. Turns out that hops and alcohol are a great preservative.

A decent IPA but unfortunately not too memorable. On draft at the Bistro on Bridge in Phoenixville. The beer poured a golden color with a decent-sized white head. The head left some nice lacing around the inside of the glass. The nose had some faint grapefruit and orange, as did the flavors. There just wasnít enough of a hop profile in this beer. I didnít get that smack in the face that a good IPA should give you.

Bottle. Nose watery, muddy caramel, pours hazy pale brown-orange with a short beige head. Taste medium-strong bitter, strong mineral content with a sliver of citrus, semi-dry with touches of lasting rubbery astringency and a little wood around the dull caramel center. Medium-full body. Just bad craftsmanship all the way around, and a whole lotta muddle. [2016.01.12: 1.4]

Small sample on draft. The body was way too thin for my tastes, but there was some good things going on. Some caramel malts, orange, pine and hop. Something was missing.

Hazy golden orange pour with minimal aroma-slightly funky. Flavor, however, was pine, citrus, some caramel. Nice IPA. Frothy white head. Decent lacing.

Tastes like liquid weed. Hoppy but a funky aftertaste. Good mouthfeel but didn't live the flavor or finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NikkTwist (2469) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 14, 2015
Draft at Moriartys. Hazy orange amber pour. Large soapy foam head. Sporadic lace. Mildly hoppy taste with a slightly creamy palate up front (maybe due to the foam). Pine. Citrus. Resin. Blonde caramel malts. Few odd notes in the finish. Not feeling it.

dhatton (241) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - JUN 10, 2015
White head with murky dark orange body. Resinous aroma accented with pine. Malty hop taste and moderate bitters. Relatively dry finish with a nice bite.

Almost no aroma at all. The taste is all bitter grassiness. Not an enjoyable beer in anyway. I donít really have anything nice to say about this beer. Just another poor version of an IPA.

on tap at Dog & Bull in Croydon - This is a very good IPA. Has a nice hop character and a nice color. Lightly sweet - very good.

Pours bright medium orange with a one finger off white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of citrus, pine, tropical fruits, and sweet malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma. Has a medium body with a slightly watery mouthfeel and a moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a decently tasty IPA that is pretty drinkable.
