3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Slightly hazy copper coloured body with an orange glow and absolutely no head at all. Aroma of very strong biscuity malt with a piney, resinous and grapefruity hop hick and some sweet notes of honey and apricots. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and piney kick at first with not much malt behind it, but the aftertaste shows even more of a hop kick and some lighter sweetness at the finish. Aftertaste is blindly showing the hops but fading to a grassy, herbal kick with a nice smooth bitterness - this is more of a hop-forward IPA with missing malt, but this is good for folks who like session IPAs that weren’t intentional. Overall, a hop-centred IPA with less malt than you’d expect, but for me, that’s a good thing, just know that going into it that it’s off in balance and enjoy the hop kicks! I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Total Wine in Tampa, Florida on 03-January-2014 for US$1.99 sampled at home in Washington on 17-May-2014. Best by Date on Bottle of February 2014, Lot #379.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a hazy copper golden with minimal head. Nice fruity aroma, maybe a bit of a grapefruit scent. Light body, nice mouthfeel. Nice hop flavor, pick up some grapefruit and slight pine on the back of the tongue. Finishes very dry but nice ipa nonetheless.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Very strong bittering and aroma hops. Strong enough back end to support the hoppiness, but I would like a little more malt personally. Great beer overall from my favorite Pennsylvania brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle: The aroma consists of light-moderate grapefruit, light caramel, and a touch of fruit. It pours a cloudy burnt orange with a one finger off-white head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a soapy ring. There is a decent amount of dotted lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with very quick dose of caramel and faint fruit. The finish is very bitter with heavy pine and slightly less grapefruit. It’s medium bodied with moderate-heavy carbonation.
