Dacrza (598) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Date tasted: July 13, 2013 at Bea McNally’s in Hackettstown, NJ... Glassware: pint... Occasion: celebrating a good round (aesthetics more than scores) of golf with bro Jer and Matt....Appearance: dark amber body; slow/low effervescence; thick white head that holds a finger solidly... Aroma: bright, sprucey hops; a backbone of mellow malts keeps the profile a bit unbalanced... Palate: full-bodied, effectively working the whole mouth--a good prelude for a spicy nacho appetizer...Taste: malts are in full effect, belying the IPA style this purports to be--almost an ESB underlying its hoppy flash; the pale hops build their intensity as the glass drain... Overall: aside from Matt’s sarcasm concerning the language of the beer rating world--or just me--the drinking experience was a smooth, fitting finish to a good day of golfing, with a solid strength; not so EVIL as it is EVOLVED, a pleasantly drinkable beer that subtly pushes its 6%ABV...only reservation is that it doesn’t consistently present as an India pale ale....

ARMed (622) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 16, 2015
Mediocre brew with a lot a room to grow. This one is a simple standard brew with nothing that I can comment that sets it apart for its competition. A re-work of the recipe is needed to give this one some new life!

BVery (7680) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - MAY 12, 2015
Tap at Taphouse Grille. Orange to slightly amber pour with a small soapy white head. Little bit of stale malt, cardboard, but some citrus as well.

Beerathon (1499) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2015
Slightly amber hued golden pour with marginal head and some lacing. Grass/earthy notes with faint citrus in the nose and flavor, has a soapiness to it. Easy drinking, but nothing spectacular.

Not a particularly good pale ale I picked up in Asheville in 2015. Stale aroma, mild and forgettable. Citrus aroma dissipates quickly.

Bulk_Carrier (2587) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 7, 2015
This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy burnt orange color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than about twenty seconds. Light lacing speckled the glass. The smell had a soft sweet slightly spiced piney hops overcoating a multitude of nose smacking sweet malts. The taste was mainly sweet between the malts and the hops displacing the bitterness from the quality. A light sweet malty aftertaste leads into a quick semi-dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed pretty subdued for an AIPA. It doesn’t seem to have the bitterness I expected for an AIPA. Overall, to me, this one was just okay as an AIPA I was hoping for more bitterness. I might have again depending upon the situation.

On tap at Ward 8 Nice head, clear golden color. Citrus and pine on the nose. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Nice IPA from a brewery I just heard of today.

cheap (4486) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2014
From a bottle has little ipa aroma, just dull hops for the most part on the nose. And yea, ditch the west coast thing. Call it west grove style if you want to use the word west in there. Looks like any other pale beer except it has a somewhat thin staying creamy head. Rather astringent from the start. Yes, that sharp piercing bitter thing really hits the back of the throat and annoyingly hangs there. If I didn’t know better, I would put this in the piercing pilsner style. Rude and difficult, tho it has that piercing bitter pilsner thing happening, its way over the top. Difficult? Did I say difficult? Same with finish, not impressed. Finish is simly long bitter sharp thing that is quite unattractive.

Meh....here’s a suggestion. East Coast brewers. Quit calling your IPAs "west coast style". Not one that I’ve had has been close to it. Aroma was skunk, dark grain and a hint of mud. Pour was a nice enough murky medium gold with a thin off white film for a head. Taste was typical run of the mill average IPA. Iced tea, roasted malt and an astringent lingering bitterness in the finish. Drinkable, but then again most beer is. Nice carbonation.
