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

joejames (187) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2014
Can to shaker glass. Pours hazy amber orange, one finger head, decent lacing. Aroma of pine, grapefruit and bread. Taste is extremely bitter with very little sweetness. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, soapy-resin mouth feel. Finishes long and bitter with notes of pine, grapefruit, lemon rind, resin and metallic overtones. They could have upped the malt bill on this one, but not a bad IPA.

Can. Dark orange. Big grapefruit aroma with pine and bread crust. Huge citrus bitter taste. Mouth numbing feel and very unbalanced but, I like it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

skmikeg (1000) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Pours copper orange with a one finger white head. Aroma is of citrus, cracker malts, pine, sweet malts, and light grassy hops. Taste is about the same as the aroma with. Bit more hop bite and a light malt backbone. Has a medium body with a slighty creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi-moderately bitter, medium finish. Overall, a decently tasty, above average ipa.

Beerathon (1286) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Deep orange color with fluffy white head, even a bit creamy. A bit metallic, soapy, earthy, and some faint pine. Ok, but nothing good.

mansquito (3578) - Nueva York, New York, USA - NOV 29, 2014
Pours copper with white head. Aroma is pine and grapefruit. Very bitter. Very piny. Leaves sustained aftertaste. Not really my style. Too bitter and not easy to drink more than one of these.

blipp (6358) - Newark, New Jersey, USA - SEP 13, 2014
Draft. Pours golden orange with a white head. Dank piney and dirty citric hops, citrus rind, a good hit of bitterness, a long bitter hoppy finish, and low sweetness throughout. A nice drinkable hop bomb with a relatively bright and dank hop flavor. Pretty dope.

Thanks Tim for the can. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a glossed over amber color with a one finger white head. The head faded into oblivion leaving a slight stringy lacing here and there. The smell had a sweet caramel and light citrus fruit leading into a piney hops mix. The taste was sweet fruits and a light grapefruit hop flavor. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there with a slight harsh aspect of an AIPA of sorts. Overall, decent AIPA I could have again.
