COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Copper-colored, export-style pale ale with roots in English history. Dry-hopped with English varities for a well-balanced, hoppy beer.

PWalk (337) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2004
Very lackluster IPA. Itís hoppy but lacks in flavor overall. Very bland on the palate to the point where I almost didnít taste it. Pours a bright orange and produces very little head. I for one was very disappointed.

15.7og. Bright orange with decent carbonation and head. Thin, but spicy with hops throughout. It was unbalanced but refreshing,

Prostman (1077) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2004
This was a really good but rather mild IPA. Nice and smooth with not an over the top bitterness. Recommended.

pobenohne (504) - Northern Liberties, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 8, 2004
Solid American style IPA, fresh brewed and on draft. Loads of hops (cascade, cluster, columbus?) and beatiful lace.

Nuffield (3691) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 3, 2003
Hops, of course, with a vaguely plastic aroma, a titch of orange, and a sweet honey-like quality, though I don't know that everyone who takes a whiff will agree. Slightly oily consistency, sweet, syrupy, a zing of bitterness, and moderately lively carbonation, along with a bite of alcohol. An adequate concoction but a bit unfortunately unattractive in spots. Golden yellow color.

BeerSlacker (34) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 18, 2003
Golden, amber colour. Sweet body, dries to a strong hop finish. Hopping level would indicate an English IPA, as opposed to a Northwest hop special. Pretty decent representation - touch of heat at the end.

dberger624 (1028) - Phila, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2003
Part of a sampler. A ho-hum IPA. Nothing special. Had a hit of a bitter taste.

Braudog (5758) - Glenville, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2003
This presented with a soapy nose. It's an amber beer, but cloudy. I detected way too much yeast here and only minor hopping. Sharp bitter finish. Subpar.

spicedad2 (78) - Huntingdon Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2003
This was a good example of IPA. I enjoyed this beer greatly. It's nicely hoppy with a good balance of malt and hops.
