This is a very good IPA from our friends in State College, PA.
It is regularly available now so it shouldn’t be "Special Seasonal". It it noticeably more hoppy than the Mt. Nittany. Clean up front, bitter hoppy back.

22 oz. Bottle from the Brew Pub.
Impressive, a good "middle of the road" IPA that does not go "over the top with the hop". Well done here.

1.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Had this at the 2011 Pittsburgh Ratebeer Christmas Eve Eve Tasting. 12 oz bottle of rude ipa, certainly on style as far as I’m concerned. Clear and a little darker than a pale lager. Big hoppy aroma. Taste is of course over the top hops but it is a little dull. Surprisingly, it does have some creamy carbonation, something I’m not used to in a strong ipa. Finish? Bitter long medicinal feel. Again, on style.
