COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beautiful copper brew, ripe with citrus aroma from legendary American Cascade hops. The nice, initial hop bite fades to reveal the perfect subtleties of a well rounded India Pale Ale. Notice hints of orchard fruit crispness, that will leave the palate begging for more.

Pours a nice copper color with an off white head. Unfortunately from the tasting glass i am not getting much of the aroma. Flavor has a nice smooth bitterness that is very clean. Mouth feel is medium and smooth. Overall a great beer but i am missing on the aroma of an ipa. Maybe it is just the tasting size.

merc7186 (1742) - North Tonawanda, New York, USA - OCT 6, 2013
The beer appears decently with a nice mildly hazy straw/amber color to it, a nice mild off white head and mild lacing on the glass. The beer smells average with a mild sweet citrus smell and a malty undertone. The taste is decent as it has sweet citrus (orange) front and slowly fades into a somewhat piney aftertaste. The mouthfeel is decent with the beer decently carbonated and the it leaves your somewhat dry and mildly bitter. Overall, the beer was decent for a brewpub in a small town. I had a sampler platter before hand and this was my favorite after all was said and done.

Had this on tap at the brewery. High alcohol content is nicely balanced with great hops and medium sweetness. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of moderate peach and floral notes with a slight caramel backbone. Appearance is translucent gold with sticky white head. Flavor has some moderate peach, grapefruit; the caramel is muted and the finish is dry. Palate is medium, sticky and very soft. Good.

Oh yeah, feel that, my first WV rate with only like 8 yrs on RB of unsuccessfully scoring a beer brewed in this state. Poured up on tap at GABF 2012 with a pale gold body that exhibits a slight haze (hop haze I hope) body and supports a thin white head of foam. The mild aroma offers up hints of earthy to ever so slightly spicy hops and a sense of malt sweetness in the background. The taste has a mix of sweet malts and earthy to slightly spicy hops. I get a snippet of maybe pine hop resin bitterness showing up here and there. It ends pretty modest and soft on the palate with a touch of earthiness heading off into the after taste. WV just got “ticked”

Sampled on 10/11/12 at GABF Thursday Session. This India Pale ale pours a medium yellow gold color from the tap. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is fruity, sweet and citrusy. A medium bodied India Pale Ale. The malts are fruity and sweet. The hops citrusy and herbal. Decent carbonation. Nice balance. Medium bitterness. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
