Draft. Very pleasant hoppy grapefruit aroma, average carbonation. Initial mouthfeel rich and hoppy, but lingering bitter finish tarnishes the overall impression.

PhillyCraft (5489) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 12, 2015
Sample at brewery, pours clearish golden with tiny head and impressive lacing. Perfect amount of carbonation. Notes of lemon and orange skunk hops, resinous pine, toasted malt, crackers, and grain. Medium bodied. Pretty dang solid for Iron Hill juice.

60minuteman (1278) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
Crystal clear yellow-gold color, clingy white lace. Heavy on the earthy, roasted hops. It truly is a hopfest. A little citrusy, some pine and spice balance out this IPA. I love the hop content on this one and hops aren’t even my biggest thing, even when it comes to an IPA.

MadRobin (2767) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - JUN 18, 2014
On tap 4 oz. taste at Iron Hill in West Chester, PA. Bright straw-yellow with a creamy off-white head and exceptionally good lacing. Aroma of grapefruit, pineapple, tropical fruit, caramel and orange. Taste of citrus, caramel, pineapple and mild tropical fruit. Neither intensely bitter nor malty, but instead a gentler, well-balanced IPA with plenty of flavor. Medium/full body and low/medium carbonization with a soft, smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
