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. Pours a pretty clear copper with a big off white head. Aroma is lemon, Fruity Pebbles and slightly metallic. Taste is lemon, bitter tea like hops and bready malt. Medium slick palate and strong carbonation. Nice hoppy ale without being over the top.

Light IPA. Wanted to like more, but may work as a session IPA. Will give another chance. Light, light, light. ---all in good suds.

LilBeerDoctor (3370) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 27, 2013
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a hazy orange with a thin white head. Aroma of citrus, light fruits, jam, pale malts, grassy hops. Flavor of lots of bready malt, bitter grassy hops, hop oils. This is an IPA with lots of bittering hops (versus citrusy or fruity IPAs). Very drinkable. This is a really solid IPA, I’m surprised it doesn’t get better ratings. It is fairly similar to Smuttynose IPA. 8/4/8/4/15 (3.9/5)

beerbill (3267) - Laurel, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2013
On draught at the brewpub. Arrived a cloudy gold with a thin white head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and laced the glass well. Pleasant citrus aroma with grapefruit most notable. The flavor is malt followed by some moderate hops bitterness. The bitterness is not overdone and lingers briefly beyond the swallow. Medium bodied. Nice solid IPA.

redpooba (396) - New York, USA - JAN 15, 2013
Orange-ish hopped yellow with a soft white head. Citrus is on the nose, and there are notes of hot lemon grass on the tongue.

Poured on draft at the source. Pours a hazy copper with a white head of foam. Aroma is citrusy and grassy. Smells nice and tastes just as good. Fruity and bitter. Probably one of the better beers sampled this day.
