COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The discovery of the true I.P.A. (India Pale Ale) made right here in Slippery Rock. The British added hops to oak barrels to help preserve the beer for its long voyage to British-controlled India. Brewed in the same English tradition, we dry-hopped our ale, giving the beer a very aromatic quality as it travels to your mug.

Can. Amber/burnt orange. The aroma is spiced caramel sugar. The taste adds pine and dark tea. Sweet and bitter lemony bite on the finish, rich palate with resin and strong carb. Very good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aside from it's lovely color and a bit of floral taste in the middle, there isn't much to it other than a whole lot of hoppy bitterness. The finish is particularly bitter.

Pale deep golden pour with a frothy soapy white head and decent lacing .... Aroma of floral and some earthy, grassy hops along with distinct grainy British malts and caramel malts .... Taste is of earthy, floral, light citrus, grassy and bitter hops with a nice malty caramel, grainy and toasted British feel .... Def hits the British style with a lingering bitter hop bite.... Respectable and sessionable

Draft at the brewpub. Pours an golden orange with just a wisp of head and some soapy lace. Nose of grapefruit, tangerine, grass. Medium body, mild to moderate bitterness. Decent hop flavor with a slightly off-putting finish.
