COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We've brewed our filtered IPA for 13 years, and never considered offering the REAL (unfiltered) version that is naturally carbonated just as it comes out of our fermenters. Well here it is! We hope you enjoy our REAL IPA.

omhper (23317) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 26, 2009
Bottled at Oliver Twist, Stockholm. Hazy golden, mid-sized airy head. Appley nose. Fairly sweet with medium body. Fruity and a bit grainy with notes of hay and orange. Much less aromatic and with less bling bling and shiny hop surface than most American IPAs. Instead it is in possession of depth and soul. This, minus the appley nose, would be something great. Finishes with increasing balanced bitterness. A timid, introvert IPA, made for those who look beyond the search for BIG flavours.

jtclockwork (14717) - , New Jersey, USA - APR 29, 2010
Average run of the mill micro-brewed IPA. Nothing you haven’t seen before. Mild hoppiness. Nice amber pour. Good summertime brew. Rated 4/9/10

bhensonb (13982) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 30, 2011
Bottle from Half Time. Pours light amber gold with a foamy/creamy 2 finger off-white head. Aroma is floral with some mild citrus and a little caramel. Mouthfeel is rather lush. Flavor is very floral/citrus and almost hides the caramel. Quite hoppy, though not burningly bitter, and with time there’s some graprefruit rind detectible. Good stuff.

Lubiere (12769) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 10, 2010
A golden IPA with athick creamy off white head. In aroma, light floral hops, biscuitty malt. In mouth, crisp malt with light German like hops, not bad, but not what I expected. Served too cold. On tap at Holiday Inn, Burlington VT, Jan. 12 2010.

hopdog (11274) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 19, 2008
12oz bottle. Opened to a loud Pssst and proceeded to poure all, and I mean all, off white head. Eventually settled into a deep and cloudy golden color. Aromas of citrus and wet grains. Tastes of citrus, spicy and the same graininess.

DocLock (9866) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2006
Bottle from Super Saver. The pour is hazy golden with minimal white head, and aromas of citrusy hops, some piney florals. Flavor is pale malty, with some hopcit and floral spices. The palate is rather bland and watery, and I had a hard time enjoying this one. OK for a hot summer day working on a Vermont farm, I suppose, but not after a 10 hour day in a New Jersey pharma company.

Long Trail event at the Golden Rail. Pours an almost hazy yellow amber with a hint of a white head. Toasted malt and hops on the nose. Medium bodied, small creamy carbonation with a touch of sweetness. Finishes with a little more sweetness, and a bit of a grapefruit bitterness.
