COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Your first experience with this IPA is the citrus bouquet from its rocky white head. The initial taste is subdued but gradually becomes intense without any harsh bitterness. The Heartier the Better.

On tap at the 2014 Maryland Microbrewery Festival. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head. Aroma consists of grapefruit, peach, and lemon. Taste is much the same. Thin bodied beer with moderate carbonation average bitterness and a sticky mouth feel. Its okay just nothing to differentiate it from others.

EithCubes (5003) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 18, 2014
Bottled as "Tell Tale Heart IPA." Nose is rich in PNW hops citrus and superheavy dark caramel, light earthy and toffee, sticky malt. Lightly doughy. Pours golden but a bit more amber toward the top, deep with slow carbonation and a rocky, lacing beige head. Taste medium bitter with a little too much alcohol showing, richly malty with a little crystal and roast, strong dough and stronger caramel, citrus on the periphery until the finish and the first burp! Full body is smooth and malty, clean, somewhat moreish despite the weight. Light pine [and, as some have noted below, some mild onion in the finish]. Pleasantly surprised, this is a very good and balanced East Coast take!

This poured a dark golden color and had a thin creamy head. Nice resiny hop character in the back end with a small citrus kick on the front end, ended with a nice malty sweet flavor.

kramer (5034) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 6, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body under a one finger fizzy beige head. The nose is a little too heavy on the caramel malt for my tastes, it kinda drowns out the hops. Some moderate citrusy hops in there though. The flavor isn’t all that hoppy either, with just a little grapefruit like flavor over a rather heavy and sweet caramel malt base. Not really my kind of IPA. Medium boded with a little stickiness and fizzy carbonation. I’d pass on another chance at this one.
