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 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 (2700) - 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

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 (1682) - 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 (1873) - 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 (490) - 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.

Had 13 beer flight on a beautiful custom wood flight. Beers overall were solid and the service was great. Nothing extraordinary overall with flight, but most palatable and easy to drink. A few unique beers with honey and lavender. Individual beers as follows: Worth your weight in gold: Lager taste, slight malty feel, plenty of flavor for a yellow clear beer. Nice lager. Slippery rock Dew: Thick in the mouth, honey flavor readily present, fresh and refreshing Station 33:Crisp, caramel malts, simple but enjoyable Mcleods Eva: Smooth, sweet at the end. Light and watery for a malty beer. Less overwhelming, good or bad, then many in the same style Squirel Nut Brown: Good rendition for the style Amber waves of grain: Can really taste the caramel malts. Drinkable. Simcoe Pale Ale: Smells like a christmas treee. Would be nice with a big dinner to cleanse the pallate between bites. Paleo IPA: average IPA Frias Porter: Good flavor bute falls a little short. Root beer flavor at the end Stonehouse stout: On nitro. Guiness feel in the mouth but a bit more boring. Fruit bowl: neat idea, apricot flavor this go around, great summer beer Lavender Abbey: Strong aroma and flavor. Lavender hits you in the face. Polarizing experience.

John25 (496) - Middletown, New Jersey, USA - JUL 4, 2014
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.
