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.

obxdude10 (2043) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2002
Dark orangey-copper in color, great head retention that laced around the glass all the way down the pint, a fair amount of hop bitterness, a nice malty balance, great floral hoppy aftertaste, very nice IPA

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.

This was a good example of IPA. I enjoyed this beer greatly. It's nicely hoppy with a good balance of malt and hops.

Hawksfan17 (890) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Nice citrus aroma on this IPA, has a similar but well balanced flavor. Pours a nice copper/orange color and went down smooth. I would say get this or the Stout when visiting.

TheBeerLover (1025) - DC Metro Area, USA - APR 14, 2007
Sampled on draught at the brewpub in Philadelphia, PA. Pours to a bright, amber color, with a creamy, white head, and a moderate amount of carbonation. The nose is nice on this beer, with good flowery/grassy hop aromas, with hints of fruity esters. The palate is firm, with good biscuit, and stewed malt flavors, paired with some juicy, estery fruit flavor. This beer finishes with more good malt and fruit up front, then ends with a grassy hop bite that slightly lingers. Well done BIPA, with a good balance of malt, fruit, and hops. Tangy, and very drinkable, it has a nice hop bite, and is a makes for a nice pint to enjoy at the brewpub, or to have with a number of dishes on the menu.

Sammy (8636) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2005
Very drinkable, cascade hops, floral and grapefuit aroma. Creamy smooth with significant grapefruit notes, bitter hop aftertaste. Medium bodied, I can stay with this all night.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUN 4, 2007
On tap at the brew pub. Pours a lightly hazy orange amber with a medium creamy/bubbly off white lacing head. Aroma of various citrus, pine, orange, caramel. Flavors of the same. Nice touch of hop bitterness with malty sweetness to balance. Slightly thin.

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.
