COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of our friend and mascot, Wylie the fish, we are hooking you up with an aggressively hopped India Pale, the staple for any fishing trip. This beer is a hop lover’s dream. Andrew Maxwell put over 1.5 decades of recipe development into this India Pale Ale, creating the fourth dimension of flavor. Combining four varieties of hops produces a unique beer that has an aggressive hop flavor, bite and aroma without denying the presence of malt which I.P.A.s often lack.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is just lightly hoppy with a little crystal malt below. Doesn’t smell especially inviting, as far as an IPA goes, but there’s nothing wrong with it. The flavor is pretty lacking in the hops department, especially for being touted as "aggressively" hopped. There’s a little too much dark crystal malt in here for my tastes, leaving a little too much sweetness lingering on the finish. Not really up my alley as far as the style goes. Medium bodied, a little clingy, moderate fizzy carbonation. Not for me, but I’d like to try it again directly from the source though.

Bottle at Barley’s and Hop’s, Bethel Park, PA on 02/11/12. Poured a hazy copper body with a smallish beige head. There was a subtle and slightly funky aroma of light caramel maltiness, a little grapefruit, some citrus rinds, lemon, butter, and wet cardboard. Went down thin to medium-bodied. First and foremost, this beer tasted like it was made with dirty river water. There was an undeniable funkiness all the way through. Some caramel and a light breadiness were both present upfront taste-wise. A little more buttered bread in the middle. The finish was kinda grassy and herbal with a touch of grapefruit and some sour lemon juice. This was just not good.

Had it from the bottle at a party. Noting here to rave about and I wish I could say more in praise of this one but I’d be forcing myself to do so. Just an average brew.

LilBeerDoctor (3507) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt and floral hops. Flavor features more hoppy bitterness and bready malts. Good IPA, although it’s more like a pale ale. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

4 oz sample draft. Clear, copper color. Light head. Some Citrus/floral hop aroma, some caramel notes. Ave carbonation. Bitter finish. Not bad

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Caramel colored with an off white cover. Aroma is some toasted malt, herbal hops. Taste is pretty much the same, nothing too mind-blowing but it was solid enough that I had a second.

(12oz bottle) clear copper, soapy white bubbles. Nose of rye, rhubarb, orange, sweet cracker. Taste is very bitter, herbaceous, and extremely bitter citrus oils. Super bitter palate linger.

Very nice IPA at the Pour House on the Northside. Slightly cloudy, Golden color, Not a lot of aromatic types but plenty of crisp bitter taste and full mouth.

DiarmaidBHK (3599) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 31, 2011
Pours slightly orange with a thin white head. Not a lot of aroma. The taste is full of grapefruit but not much else. Finishes clean. I’ve had this beer like 40 times before. I’m kind of getting bored with this style.

This Micro Brewery was visited on Mother’s day on our trip back from Cleveland. The place was packed. we enjoyed lunch at the bar. The IPA pored a clody amber in a tall 16 oz glass. the head was small and dissapated. The ale had the common citrus of a cascade hops, with some balanced bitterness. The finish was smooth with some bitterness.
