Amber pour, foamy white head. Aroma is very citrusy and sweet, but with a bit of a fume spike I donít much care for. Flavor is also very hoppy and apricoty. Not as balanced as Iíd like. Harsh.

RBESG Sheffield 2009 Grand Tasting @ the Harlequin. Hazy orange color with a huge white head.Strong citric hop aroma. Very bitter taste. Citric fruits ltos of them, and some sweeter ones like peach and apricot. It leads to a very dryi and bitter finish.Rough around the edges but enjoyable nevertheless.

On tap at TJís in Paoli in an IPA flight. Easily the disappointment of the group. The summit hops contribute onion and garlic notes that, with the bitterness, drown out any of the citrus notes that the other hops would have provided. The color and lacing are both impressive. The brownish-amber body comes topped with some creamy head that laces well. Unfortunately, the rest of this beer didnít measure up.

Bottle. 12 oz. Got this guy by accident in a six pack of Sankaty Light Lager. Pours a medium tan brown with an initially fat, fluffy off-white head, which recedes quickly. Aroma of crackers, malty, biscuity notes, some soft lavender and honey, and some slight vanilla in the back. Flavors are very mild; musty, earthy tones mingle with a flash of vibrant citrus and finishes with a smoothly bitter, hoppy finish. Very good. A pleasant surprise for sure.

12oz bottle in a tulip. Pours ruby/amber with a thick, lacy, off-white head. Aroma of citrusy/spicy hops, some light fruit, and caramel and nutty malts. The hops are strong in this IPA, but the hops provide a perfect balance. Average texture. A really good IPA.

A thick and earthy IPA. Ddep orange with a huge head and lots of lace. Pungent pine and cut grass in the nose. Full bodied with medium carbonation. I tend to like my IPA more on the drinkable side but this is complex and satisfying.

Poured a nice color with a medium sized head. Aroma is hoppy with some earthy notes. taste is a little thin with hops. Not as much hop flavor as I hoped for. Still a solid IPA.

Pours a light brown with tons of sediment, kind of off-putting. Taste is a light citrus hit, Hoppy without being overly bitter. Good beer from a brewery I never heard of.
