Draft at Bella Notte in Pittsburgh. Perhaps a bit on the too hoppy bitter side but for those who prefer the extra strength version you’ll fins enjoyment here.

Drank from a sampler glass at the Electric City Craft Brew Fest! Aromas arent overly hoppy and the taste isn’t over hoppy for this IPA. Pours a nice hazy dark amber. A decent IPA!

Bottle to shaker glass. Pours a cloudy copper and has a malty nose. First taste is malty and sweet with enough hop bitter to make a nice balance.

When poured the first bottle foamed over and the second almost did. Nice aroma of pine, citrus. Over carbonated, which brings this down a notch. Reminds me of some home brew I’ve had, and it’s not worth the $9.99 for a six pack.

Pours a cloudy amber orange. Strong citrus and grassy aroma. Flavor is grassy malts balanced with citrus hops, slightly piney with grapefruit notes. Starts sweet and finishes with a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Overall a really decent IPA.

Transfer from BA review on 12-18-13-
Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance – Served an amber colored brew with a one finger of foamy white head. The head has a good level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a fantastic level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a sweeter tropical fruit smell of pineapple, papaya, and tangerine. Along with these smells is a bit of caramel sweetness as well as some aromas of a more biscuity nature. Aromas of a more melon like nature are there as well giving it a sweet, fruity smell overall.
Taste – The taste begins with a moderately strong biscuit malt taste with some sweetness of a caramel nature mixed within. As the flavor advances a good deal of fruity sweetness comes to the tongue with a moderately good deal of orange, tangerine, and pineapple all coming to the tongue. Some hop tastes start developing midway through the taste with them being mainly of a grassy nature at first, but adding a good deal of grapefruit hoppiness as the flavor moves on. Some watermelon rind like flavors come to the tongue more as the flavor advances to the end, as well as increase in the overall hop flavor. With the increase in hop and all the sweet fruity tastes and nice biscuit malt base, one is left with a clean hopped fruity flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is just a tad over average in its thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that is average. Both are great for the blend of sweet, biscuit, and hop flavors that the brew possesses, highlighting all but yet not allowing one to dominate the flavor profile.
Overall –A rather tasty and enjoyable IPA overall. Quite delicious and one nice drink to try if you get a chance.
