An American-style brown version of an IPA. The beer has a slight dark malt flavor but is dominated by an abundance of citrusy American grown hops.

ROGUE (2200) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - SEP 18, 2013
On tap at IH Wilmington. Pours a hazy medium brown color with a whitish head with good retention and mild lacing. Aroma was sweet caramel malts with citrus hop undertones. Flavor follows the aroma with the citrus and light piney hops being more assertive through the finish. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, and a lasting bitterness.

MrChopin (4303) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Tap at Wilmington. hazy tan-amber, moderate white head, lacing extensive. Nose is considerable coffee and orange, also pencil shavings and paper. Flavor is a bit more straightforward, sticky orange bitterness gives way to cheesy dough and light coffee for the finish, all leaving a salty impression. Too-high Carbonation kills roast. appearance misleadingly light for this near-black Ipa. Odd beer.

BeerandBlues2 (12187) - Escondido, California, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Tap - Wilmington. Pours clear tawny with a medium, fizzy white head, medium retention with good lacing. Aroma is caramel, cookie, and bread malt with earthy and woody hops, and dates. Flavor is malt behind heavy hops and medium bitterness, fruity esters, sweaty yeast and a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation.

Draft @ brewpub. Pours light brown, but murky enough you can?t see through it. Off-white head with some lacing. Aroma was citrus hops with some malt notes. Flavor was very well balanced. Initial bitterness provided by the hops transitions smoothly into a caramel malt finish. Definitely one of the better Iron Hill beers.

Travlr (21638) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2011
Draft at the source. Deep variegated brown color, thin tan head. Aroma of light flowers and grass. Taste is very well balanced and easy to drink. My favorite on the seasonal sampler menu.

GMCC2181 (1591) - Newark, Delaware, USA - NOV 19, 2011
Cask at Newark. 5oz glass.... Not much head, light brown in color, letting light through. Slightly hoppy nose. Taste is a more of an IPA than a brown ale. Grassy with some citrus fruits. Smooth creamy body. Overall Nice brew

eaglefan538 (3032) - Wilmington, Delaware, USA - NOV 12, 2011
On draft at IH Wilmington. Appearance was orange in color with a slight orangey colored head. The aroma was citrus hops and rinds. The flavor followed, good bitterness element, the slight amount of dark roast in the malt profile helped add to the robustness and accentuate the bitterness. Refreshing, probably shoulda done this after Oompa Loompa on cask, which got a bit sticky syrupy at the end!
