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.

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.

on tap @ North Country / Slippery Rock PA --- Clear dark amber color, off-white head, bands of lace. Taste is malt with light carbonation and hops with no discernible flavor (just bittering). Not a memorable brew, but serviceable.

Cloudy orange with moderate persistent head. Malts quite sweet, biscuity, hops orange and lemon rind with a dry grassy finish. Good take on an English style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HoppyScallywag (293) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2016
Nice hoppy aroma. A mild malt wraps your mouth and then is calmed by a nice, tingly bitter. The malt still reminds you it's there on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a finger of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Fruity hops focusing on orange, mango, and papaya. Surprisingly toasty with caramel maltiness. Perhaps a touch of breadiness as well. 3.5 T: The taste is more malt-forward than the nose. Good blend of caramel and toastiness. Mild-moderate bitterness. Fruits mentioned above with the addition of some grapefruit. Pretty good. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasant velvety creaminess to it. 3.5 D: Solid beer. Love the toastiness in this. ★ 663 characters DavoleBomb, Apr 01, 2015

Aurelius (5007) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Incredible pompadour eggshell-colored head, clever and well executed can. Fresh AIPA aroma, you know what that means. Misty honey colored brew. Twisty-pithy grapefruit and kumquat flavors up front. Moderately sweet, true to style, not much more than that. Bitter pithy aftertaste. Drinkable, good, pedestrian. ABC Liquors, Betton.

Tallahassee, Fl - ABC Fine Wine & Spirits - Betton. Slight haze to the light copper pour, sticky bone colored head, decent lacing. Orange marmalade aroma with a touch of honey sweetness. Thick flavor, very caramel-like, more malt accented maple syrup slight citrus bitterness. Sludgy mouthfeel.

This IPA was a bit metallic and very high alkaline. Not very enjoyable and I'm not sure why the decent ratings. Maybe it was a bad can.
