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 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.

Poured into tulip a hazy copper with white head and good lace. While the commercial description said citrus, grapefruit as did many other reviews here I got a pine aroma and taste. Crisp pine air over a resin. Enjoyed

Pours slightly hazy gold. Fluffy white head. Nose is faint hops. Taste is malt, tropical hops, nothing crazy but yummy. A good go to ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Can gifted from a friend. Pours a clean medium golden color with a finger of whitish foam. Nose is subtle with a bit of stale malt, pine and booze. Palate is way bitter, abrasive eraser notes scrape the palate of any glimpses of citrus and grapefruit leaving my palate fatigued and uninspired.

Delicious old school IPA. No mango or melon shit here. Just a beautiful mouth scrapingly bitter IPA. Aroma and flavor were the same. Intensely bitter grapefruit rind and lemon zest with a dry bitter finish. Good carbonation. One dimensional and thatís why itís great. Good carbonation

Draught at Jet Rock Bar and Grill in Terminal B of PHL. Clear copper with moderate white head that patterns well down the glass. Great citrus aroma. Flavor is slightly off the mark on those flavors.

jsporrer (710) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2016
Pours a hazy golden amber with a thin white head. Medium carbonation with plenty of lacing. Lots of pine ans some citrus in the aroma. Slightly oily texture. Strong citrus rind flavor up front with a fairly bitter finish and a harsh aftertaste. Not very refreshing. Too bitter for me.

That1Guy (2192) - Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2016
12 oz can pours clear golden with a white head that dissipates pretty quickly. Vert earthy when it comes to the hops. Has a bitter, grapefruit rind flavor and finish to it. Thin-bodied, but pretty good.

Pours a hazy bright rust orange with thick white head. A powerful citrus hop bomb aroma with some floral. A powerful citrus hop bomb taste with floral, pine, and lemongrass. A very bitter hop aftertaste.

Pours an amber red with a minimal tan head. Smells of flowers and citrus. Taste is bitter and sweet - spruce and citrus followed by biscuit malts.
