COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our search for a location to start this brewery took us across much of Lower Bucks County, many times traveling down the well known divider between northern Philadelphia, southern Bucks, and Montgomery Counties….County Line Road. One of the original names we thought of for the brewery was that of County Line Brewing Company. I don’t know how or why we didn’t settle on that, but in recognition of our location so close to Philadelphia and that potential namesake, we decided to pass the name on to our flagship IPA that comes in at 6.63% ABV and is chock full of Warrior, Chinook, Simcoe, and Zythos hops. It’s got a bready, slightly cracker-like malt backbone to counter some of that hop bitterness, but not so much that this four hop combination won’t put a smile on your face (or a giant pucker). It’s got a huge citrus-grapefruit note with a nice lingering hop bitterness showing a complexity that few hugely hop forward IPAs lack.

Can to ÅTRÅVÄRD glass, hazy dark auburn hue, some tiny pulpy bust, small creamy white diminishing head, not much lacing, smell is a bread malt, crisp, on the lighter side, pretty good balance, maybe a little bit lacking some hop punch, what is there is citrus\grapefruit, not overly bitter, very drinkable especially for summer as is on the lighter side alcohol % than what i typically drink

GreatDane1632 (1058) - Alabama, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Can poured into a glass -- Slightly Hazy golden yellow. Aroma is non descript and not very ipa-like. Flavor is strong bitter and not too much else. Disappointing the lack of flavor and aroma hops.

Surprisingly good, more than I expected. Touches of grapefruit, briny nose. The bitter clings for a bit.

PhillyCraft (3971) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 1, 2015
Fresh can Clearish golden color with small to medium heAd. Nose and flavkr are sweet malt, bitter hops, cracker, and boozy grain. Smelled better then flavor but I had to add a few shots of grapefruit juice to make this one drinkable. When is boat beer hitting the shelves again?
