Draft. One of the best Iron Hill offerings. Average hoppy aroma. Pours medium brown. Strong hoppy flavors, with expected astringent, bitter after taste. Very drinkable.

Firkin at iron Hill. Pours reddish brown with a small white head. The aroma has some pine, grapefruit, light lemon, a bit floral, some caramel. The taste is medium bitter with a caramel balance that is accentuated by a sweet citrus zip and a dry bitter finish

Really nice IPA on draft at Phoenixville. Pours a light gold color with an ample white head. The head leaves some really nice, sticky lacing inside the glass. The nose featured a great profile of dry and spicy hops. The flavors were really delicious and well-balanced, with notes of grapefruit, lime and pine. This IPA had just enough bready and sweet malt for balance and flavor. The finish was well-rounded, dry, spicy and hoppy.

Draft at Newark. Abv 5.8%. Pours golden with a sudsy white head and lacing that coats the whole glass till the end. Aroma is light and citrusy with a touch of pine needle. Taste is crisp floral hops on a medium body with a nice bitter finish. Would love to see a double version of this.

EithCubes (4908) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 9, 2011
UPDATED: AUG 5, 2014 Draught in Newark. Orange-amber pour, smell the American hops from 3 feet away! Beige lacing, sweet and super juicy. Not really bitter, fruity sweet juicy hops, citrus and resin but no grit, awesome change of pace but want to keep it at low volume. [2009.08.21: 3.5]

Draught at the new Maple Shade location. Poured a pale golden. Bone-dry, heavily -hopped nose and body with a nice resiny grit. Definitely dry-hopped. Citrus and toast, leafy greens, smooth and complex. A little alcohol showing, a little soapy, medium body, very nice, might session with this if it were a bit weaker. [2011.05.09: 3.7]

Draught in Newark. Lightly hazy golden-copper with a lacing white head. Soft light-medium body (cask?), hoppy and seemingly wheaty, lots of fruit an light tropical notes, certainly zesty with a touch of tartness and citrus. [2014.08.04: 3.2]
