FROTHINGSLOSH (6846) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 9, 2016
Sampled on draft this beer poured a murky golden apricot color with a small foamy white head that left decent lacing. The aroma was pine, citrus and bit of tropical fruit and honey. The flavor was bitter and dryish with notes of cardboard, pine, citrus and a touch of tropical fruit. Long finish. Moderately full bodied. Ok.

kassner (1552) - Wexford, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 14, 2011
had this at RFD. Listed there as a Double IPA not a pale ale but alcohol at 8% so I think it is the same. Certainly cam across as close to a double IPA with plenty of hops all around.
