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.

Can from Brewery APPEARANCE – turbid light golden brown. long lasting pure white head with good lacing. NOSE - Amazing scent of floral hops w/ a hint of citrus. As it warms up & the head dwindles, smells more like piney IPA flavors. FLAVOR – Doesn’t match the nose. Tastes a bit like a stale west coast ipa. NOTES - I wish it tasted like it smelled.

shigadeyo (3079) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - DEC 3, 2014
Really fresh, vibrant hop aroma (floral, a little citrusy) with some honeycomb maltiness in the background. Reminds me a of a newly opened package of hop pellets... Cloudy golden color with an off-white head. Average maltiness with a really good layer of hops heaped on top. Floral, herbal and slightly citrusy hops; moderate bitterness. Medium-bodied, cask-like mouthfeel. Very nice Pale Ale overall. Extremely flavorful and sessionable for the style (I would call it an ENGLISH-style IPA).

kramer (5108) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 28, 2014
Can. Pours a slightly hazy copper body under a one finger foamy beige head that had decent retention. The nose is pretty terrible for an IPA, it’s all super husky and grainy, it smells like a bag of crushed grain. Where’s the damn hops? The flavor is just as husky and grainy, without much hop flavor at all. There’s a fair amount of bitterness on the finish, but this doesn’t taste like an IPA at all. It’s a little overly sweet throughout as well. Medium bodied with fizzy carbonation and a lingering bitter and husky finish. Not a terrible beer maybe, but one of the worst IPAs I’ve had in a while.

artmcd8 (1801) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 14, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Murky yellow pour with a pale white head. Aroma of herbal hops and cereal. Taste is bitter with a light body. Not much flavor.

kaser (3126) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Poured from 12oz can at home. Weird earth and dirt yet fruit taste. Slightly dank taste throws off some pretty good qualities in this beer. Kind of sort of enjoyed it but I can't say it is that great

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Can from Whole Foods Plymouth. Dark straw pour with minimal head. Nose was caramel malt, hopcitrus. Tastes resiny hoppy, citric, with caramel malt notes. Finishes bitter and hoppy.

Leafs93 (1754) - Clarks Summit, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 1, 2014
Pours deep gold with a large white head. Aroma is floral, hint of citrus and caramel. More sweet then bitter. Medium bodied, slick texture and highly carbonated.

TheJester (1963) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 23, 2014
12 oz can. Says 6.2%. Doesn’t really stand out in any way. Seems to be promoted as a British IPA, but it isn’t. The aroma is nice, but otherwise it’s pretty much average across the board. No faults, though.

jmcgavin12 (492) - Madison, USA - JUL 20, 2014
Pours a yellow/amber with two fingers of frothy white head. Aroma is citrus with bits of pine and resin. Taste is balanced with an average sweetness and a long pleasing bitter duration. Finishes a bit oily with medium carbonation.
