COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A classic American IPA with lots of floral punch and assertive hop presence. Hopped with Nugget, Palisade and Amarillo colored to a reddish hue thanks to Munich and Aromatic malts.

Aggressively hopped, but more on the British IPA spectrum rather than the juicy west coast iteration.

Decent but typical IPA. Aroma was very floral. Rose petals, earth and fresh cut grass. Pour was a light bubbly gold with a one finger white head. Taste was not very hoppy, but a nice refreshing beer. Light malt and earthy hops that does not linger. Would be a good lawnmower beer. Mild carbonation.

Bottle thanks to Graeme. Pours a cloudy orange copper with no head. The aroma is floral hop and pine. Medium mouth with nice bitterness, grapefruit, and resin. Decent.

DATE REVIEWED: August 7, 2014... GLASSWARE: Hop Devil nonick... OCCASION: enjoying a nice haul from our State College weekend...APPEARANCE: clear, red amber body that streams a steady effervescence; dirty white head settles from a solid finger to a creamy resilience flaring with sunbursts of lacing--great to look at... AROMA: brilliant botanical array of lilac, carnations and grass; secondary scents of spices such as allspice and nutmeg--invitingly complex... PALATE: mellow, medium-bodied and drinkably relaxed; a thin yet consistent aftertaste holds to the back of the throat; creamy, if anything... TASTE: a solidly established pale ale, though not big enough for the India moniker--well-rounded, perhaps, by the soft, sweet malts that balance every sip; the malts--creamy, buttery--escort blunted hops along the journey, with a sessionable invitation... OVERALL: although a pleasant sipping beer, I find it tough to call this IPA anything beyond above average, as so many breweries are setting thee bar so high in this style...still, tough to slam a beer that is aesthetically pleasing and delivers on its promise with enough balance to convince--albeit temporarily--that the overhopped IPA is not the way to go ....

BA-transfer. Poured from bottle into grenade pint glass Appearance - Pours a nice red/orange color with a thin white head that lasts nearly 5 min. Smell - Meet initially with some piney aroma from the hops as well as a little bit of sweet caramel aroma. Taste - a great balance between malt and hop. The maltliness starts strong, with the hops finishing strong. Mouthfeel - Good carbonation and body for beer style. Not too thin but just right. Overall - A great brew to drink on an average occasion. A very good standard IPA and one I would recommend over more well know such as 60 min. IPA.

DandyWolfFloyd (641) - Jim Thorpe, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 11, 2014
Aroma - nice balance of piney hops and floral hops. Appearance - reddish-copper color body; clean and clear; head is about 1/2" white head Taste - piney hops and a nice floral quality Palate - body is medium; texture is moderate, and not oily; carbonation is lively; the finish is a nice hop roar that hangs on for a decent time.

Very nice to look at. Clear amber with a red tint, small head. The aroma is floral and fruity. The taste disappoints though. Slightly fruity with a bit of caramel. A bit thin as well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Decent IPA, with a hearty flavor. Doesn't wow me or surprise me, pretty basic.

An okay crisp brew. Has a bit of a nice spice taste blended with the hops, smooth aftertaste with standard bitter hop flavor.
