1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Without a doubt the worst ipa Iíve ever sampled. This is a very heavy, very malty, disgustingly sweet beer without much hop character. This is a very poor example of an ipa. Hop Hog? They need to change the name to Malt Hog. IPAís should be hoppy and bitter not sweet and malty.

It pours dark golden with a decent orange hue. It has an off white moderate head with moderate lacing. Overall it is slightly cloudy. It has aromas of grass, bread, pine, and citrus. There are flavors of grass, toast, pine, a hint of floral and hints of citrus. It has a light-moderate feel to it with a low-moderate bitter finish. Overall, it is an easy drinking ale that is not quite aromatic as most IPAís or bitter.

Bottle at the hotel during Guardian Life opening in Bethlehem PA. Flowery hop aroma with pieapple, apricot, and pine notes. Sweet and malty, dry piney finish. Fresh and bright tasting.

Lancaster may not be a West Coast Hop Headís dream at 60 IBUs, but remember that itís "Dutch" country, which translates into Deutsch (Deutschland/Germany). It has more of a malt backbone, but it packs an ABV of 7%, which is stronger than Victory Hop Devil or Dogfish 60 MIN IPA. It is a solid beer with a good appearance, nose, taste, and mouth feel; however itís not going to give you that hop punch. I would give it a try, especially if youíre transiting into a IPA from a lager or pilsner dominated offering. Cheers!

Smooth, hoppy. Some pine and resin, a bit of malt underneath. Some hints of citrus zest, but not much. Rolling finish with hoppy bitterness.
