PhillyCraft (2850) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2013
On tap at Capones, pours hazy copper with medium white head, nice lacing patterns. Aromas are very nice citrus hops, rye, honey, and heavy pineapple fruit. Taste is more bitter hoppy, and sugary. Notes of wood, pine, and spicy hop. Very bitter palate but still a nice ipa. 3.6

Growler from Pinocchio’s. Clear golden yellow with a meringue head. Nose is pastry dough and orange peel; floral then dank and funky. Medium body; oily with a soft buzz, aggressively bitter. Taste is orange peel, toffee, pine and eucalyptus. Interesting but a bit coarse.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 23, 2012
An nice IIPA from a local brewer. On tap at Bocktown Robinson. Aroma was nice and hoppy. Dank, resinous hops with grapefruit and lemon with a little grass. Pour was a nice medium gold with a 2 finger off white head. Taste was very subdued for the style. It was all hops; the citrus, pine and sweet malt are all full but not overbearing. Hides alcohol perfectly. Nice carbonation. Mouth is left bitter and dry. The sweet malt backbone keeps the beer balanced. Nice

Beerathon (957) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 29, 2014
Unusually sweet with nice citrus notes and honey. Unique qualities for an IPA, with nice malts/hop balance.

UPDATED: OCT 23, 2013 Sampled on draft at the Headkeeper this beer poured a caramel-brown color with a large tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was intense harsh pine, resin and catbox. The flavor was intensely harsh and rough pine and catbox. Very long rough hoppy finish. Fairly full bodied. Not my style.
