Bottle. Lightly hazy amber pour with medium lasting head with nice tiny carbonation. The aroma is immediately apparent and very floral. Floral and citrus hops abound on the nose with just a touch of malt sweetness. The flavor is very nice indeed. Floral and some combination of spice meets pine come through as the hop profile, but the floral presence is dominant. Just enough malt and toasted grain to let a touch of sweetness come through and keep the hops playing around in there. Really a well put together combination of flavors. Medium body, dry mouth feel and finish. Very lingering. A solid brew that I would keep around if I could get it regularly.

12 oz bottle. Pours an amber gold with a 1/2" of creamy off white head. Strong hop aroma with a sweet malty background. Full, almost syrup like palate with an acidic bite. Flavor is floral and citrus hop with malty sweetness.

Got this beer in a trade I did with a friend from NY. I was happy with the results. Either way, this beer poured a nice golden amber color with a pretty off white head. It had a really nice fruity aroma, and the taste was great as well. It had really light bubbly mouthfeel with orange and grapefruit flavors pretty sweet as well. Overall quite nice.

Bottle courtesy of agl108. Best before: March. A hazy pale copper pour with a smallish light-tan head. The aroma features grapefruits, oranges, pine needles, and a touch of caramel in the background. Goes down medium-bodied with a surprising bite. A little caramel and a crisp biscuitiness upfront taste-wise. Some juicy peaches and a hint of apricots follow. After that, it’s all resiny, spicy, and zesty grapefruity deliciousness. A very pleasant surprise.

Damico (2807) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 13, 2013 On tap at the brewery, this beer smells purely hoppy, nice but not overpowering. The appearance is lighter like a honey amber color with a small head. The flavors start out with sweet hops and then settle smoothly on the tongue with some bitterness. You can taste the pleasant fruitiness from the yeast.

This was one fine IPA. Pours orangish copper with a fairly white soapy head. The aroma had citric hops as well as floral with some minorly sweet, lightly toasted malt. Medium smooth body with a touch of graininess and fairly soft carbonation for the style. The flavor starts with soft malt and gentle hops on the floral, herbal and mild citrusy side. The finish has dry grapefruit, pine and lots of smoothness. I couldn’t really believe when I saw this was 8% - I thought it was around 6%. Very nice IPA. Can’t wait to head back east and get more.

I shared a bottle of this with MereLikesBeer courtesy of our beer buddy Chad, from NY. I always like IPA’s that have a citrusy note to it, like two hearted, but this was slightly sweeter, and almost as good! Very solid IPA. Cheers!

12 oz bottle. Golden copper pour with a thick foamy head. Aroma of grapefruit and tangerine. Fantastic citrus hoppy taste with a creamy mouthfeel. Great lasting, hoppy but even finish. Pleasant surprise while searching for a dogfish to no avail.

nose is extremely well balanced mix of bready malts and spicy pine hops. hazy orange pour with nice head and good retention. flavor is excellent grapefruit, comes across very fresh and quite juicy. bitterness lingers and burns down the throat like hot sauce. excellent IPA, another shockingly good beer from this small brewery.
