COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hoppiest Brew Works beer ever? The smell of grapefruit, a sweet malt flavor, and oh by the way, lots of hop bitterness. Brewed in the tradition of West Coast ales, we have put loads of malt and hops in our kettle to come up with this sensational ale. Brewed with pale, and crystal malts, hopped with Tomahawks for Yakima Valley, WA. This beer styled has made many a microbrewery famous and this one is sure to please all those who love hops.

egajdzis (5305) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 7, 2009
Hazy amber with a small off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, citrus, pine, sticky caramel, and grapefruit. Taste of citrus, pine resin, some honey, vanilla, and bitter grapefruit. One of the better brewpub IPAs from PA.

Taste has a very good blend not overly hoppy but still alittle bitter a very nice blend. Has a great mouthfeel. Body is in the middle not too strong or too light. Has a great finish with a nice aftertaste.

kramer (4903) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2009
On tap, Allentown location. Pours a clear dark copper with a small creamy off-white head. Intense hop nose, very citrusy and bright with some slight caramel pushing through. The flavor is very bright and grapefruity without being harshly bitter or over the top. A good bit of malt backing up all these hops, but it’s far from being the focus. Long lingering finish. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and sturdy without being sticky or clingy. Nice soft fizzy carbonation. Very nice, and at 7% ABV, a few of these could put you in trouble!

Golden color with a heavy citrus-floral hop aroma. Flavor is hop dominant with citrus, sugar, bready malts and some pine. Smooth and hoppy finish. Pretty good IPA.

illinismitty (2270) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAY 28, 2008
Draft at Allentown brewpub. Pours a red amber with an off white head. Nice grapefruity hop aroma. Flavor of pale malts with a toasty accent, countered by a citrusy yet bitey hoppiness. Dry finish has lingering grapefruit rind bitterness, along with a distracting astringency.

Pours a nice copper color with a faint white head. Powerful aroma of hops with some malts. Taste is heavily bitter on the back end with some citrus-grapefruit, and sweet malts. Slow drinker, but well done.
