reggiedunlop (3121) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 11, 2013
Pours a clear light copper with a medium off white head...great lacing. Aroma has earthy/hoppy notes and plenty of maltiness...doughy with notes of dry leaves and nuttiness. Flavor has good earthy bitterness but still leans towards the balanced or malty side. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/bitter and dry...lingering bitterness.

In short: A typical citrusy/piney IPA with a big malted caramelized body. Good beer
How: Tap at brewpub, West Chester location. Last stop of the RBSG 2011 bus-trip
The look: Clear dark golden body topped by a very small beige head
In long: The typical hoppy nose is cirtusy and piney but with also dank hops notes. Big malt backbone that I’d expect more in a Double IPA than a regular IPA. Lots of caramel on a slice of white bread. Plenty of citrusy and piney hops. Overall this was a well balanced, not a hop bomb, not a malt orgy, but a bit of both. Anyway, the last beer I rated during this crazy RBSG 2011 bus-trip. On our way back there was a guy so drunk in the bus that he kept falling off on people and yelled insanities. I would have normally find it funny but it was me.

Beerman6686 (4481) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2011
This poured a medium orange color with a beige head. Aroma was a decent amount of lemony citrusy hops and light grass notes too. Lightly toasted malts are there too. Flavor was a good balance between three cs hops and toasted malt and light caramel malt. OK.

On tap at Iron Hill, our fourth stop on the RBSG bus trip. Pours a clear orange gold with a thin white head. Sweet, citrus and clean caramel and toast. Citrus and caramel. A little empty, but still decent enough. Long grapefruit finish.
