COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
From Pennsylvania - "Keystone of the Nation" - comes a truly classic American pale ale with a robust flavor. Brewed with a combination of delicious hops and lightly toasted malts, this amber brew will have you singing the virtues of liberty and independence.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Bottle. American hops dominate the nose, citrus and some classic PNW tones though a little queasy. Hazy orange-amber pour with a foamy beige head. Taste only lightly sweet with some rindy, astringent bitterness (medium), an there’s some scratchy yeast way at the bottom that might indicate the primitive stages of an infection, but regardless, the malt is thin and the crystal unrounded. Like the extra warmth from the increased abv but the gritty mouthfeel detracts.

ReggieDunlap (3005) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2012
Pours clear amber with a huge off white head...lively. ..nice lacing and retention. aroma has earthy bitterness. Flavor follows suit...earthy hops and some caramel. Mouthfeel is light and the finish is bitter/earthy and dry.

12 oz bottle from the sampler case. Not much to say about this beer in the positive. So glad I at least got a free glass for buying the case.

mansquito (3255) - Nueva York, New York, USA - OCT 28, 2012
Keg: Pours an orange color with a white head. Aroma is citrus hops, with caramel malt backbone. Taste is much as expected. Hoppiness is somewhere around the middle. This is not a very ambitious beer, but it is also perfectly drinkable and quite pleasant.

60minuteman (694) - Frazer, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 10, 2012
Clear light orange-brown. Complicated aroma of malt, hops, citrus, flowers and wheat. But there is something else...barley/cereal possibly. It’s sweet as well. Good toasted malt flavor with some bitterness and spice. Hops dominate.

Maltsoda (24) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2012
Poured light amber color with small minimal head, lots of carbonation. Smell has some toasted malt and floral hops. Taste is thin slightly sweet malt with an earthy floral hop bitterness. Easy to drink but slightly boring.

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 18, 2012
Pours a light brown/orange color. Smell is of hops, some citrus. Taste is very hop forward, bitter. Overall not bad, but a little unbalanced for my liking.

Spookgolds (241) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 5, 2012
Bottle from craft beer outlet. Amber color with some aroma of hops. Tastes of citrus and a slight hop bitterness. Good, but nothing special.

machfive55 (358) - Columbia, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2011
The beer poured slightly amber with a huge head. The aroma was citrus and floral hops. The flavor was slightly fruity with citrus hops and very bitter which gives an astringency on the palate. Overall a decent IPA but slightly overly bitter.

QuezXLV (398) - Virginia, USA - NOV 27, 2011
Very foamy white head and a nice cloudy dark orange body. The taste is strong of citrus. Thin on the palate.
