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 CountiesÖ.County Line Road. One of the original names we thought of for the brewery was that of County Line Brewing Company. I donít know how or why we didnít 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. Itís got a bready, slightly cracker-like malt backbone to counter some of that hop bitterness, but not so much that this four hop combination wonít put a smile on your face (or a giant pucker). Itís got a huge citrus-grapefruit note with a nice lingering hop bitterness showing a complexity that few hugely hop forward IPAs lack.

Sample at Kurtkeller 014: Almanac-tastic 01 on 06/27/2014. This brew is a slightly hazy copper color with a medium white head that evaporates steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops and malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of herbal hops, fruit and grainy malt. The finish is mildly bitter with a floral hops aftertaste. Decent overall.
