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.

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

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 (526) - 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 (2191) - 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 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.

Dacrza (800) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - DEC 13, 2015
DATE TASTED: December 13, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint... OCCASION: celebrating a rare Browns win... APPEARANCE: picture-perfect amber body that has the slightest haze; small, sporadic bubbles...head is sudsy, swiftly settling into a small ring akin to a New England rock wall...sparse smears of clouds... AROMA: grapefruit, spice and pine in a pale ale intensity; secondary notes of cracker, buttery spice, and more citrus--lemon, melon... PALATE: intense and full-bodied, with a buzzing presence in the the teeth and a coating, thick aftertaste--definitely a bitter IPA in its strength... TASTE: spruce and pine early, with grapefruit, mango, and other citrus-like flavors (including lemon); malts are on the backburner, with slight cracker holding down the fort... OVERALL: Another win in a break-pack rebox from Country Liquors in Hope...this IPA encourages steady sipping while working its hop-heavy magic...nice to have the first beer from a never-before-experienced brewery hit as this one has...

ordybill (1234) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - NOV 29, 2015
Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass at the Iron Abbey in Willow Grove, PA. The appearance is a golden yellow with a medium sized white head. The aroma is full of citrus and hops and the flavor matches the aroma. A very flavorful and hoppy beer.
