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 ounce bottle from Guntown. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a medium white head. A decent orange and citrus nose. The flavor is decent; biscuit, lemon, some zest. Lots of crystal. Smooth.

Can to snifter. Looks solid; a transparent orange with thin eggshell lacing. Smells of bitter hops with what appears to be some light oxidization (which doesn’t make much sense coming from a can). Tastes like it smells, but with pale malt in place of the oxidization. Average on the palate; on the thinner side for the style. A forgettable example of the style.

(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.

kramer (5061) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2012
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.

EithCubes (5053) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 29, 2014
Can. Nose of caramel and medium pine, dough with light spice, muted citrus. Pours orange, transparent with a touch of haze, rocky creamy beige head. Taste sweet (probably too sweet) with medium bitterness, and in that contest, the sweetness wins. Light resin under the caramel, very woody with little citrus, medium body thins out and flattens at times, very faint warming. Dough, somewhat smooth, heavy. Overall, has attractive points, don’t like enough to buy a case..

FROTHINGSLOSH (5039) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 2, 2007
UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer pours a golden color with a small white head. There is a light flowery hop aroma. The flavor is moderately flowery and fruity hops and grows a bit dry on the finish.

JaBier (4983) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - APR 14, 2014
Can sample at the Rivertowne tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/10/14. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt, pine and spicy hop. Malty flavor up front, giving way to grassy and earthy hops before a bitter, earthy finish.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Draught at Monroeville: Aroma of dish soap, grapefruit, and hops. Poured amber in color with a small, off-white head that diminished but lasted around the edges. Slightly hazy. Not sparkling. Flavor is lightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, grapefruit, caramel malts, and a hint of toasting. Medium body. Lightly dry texture. Soft to average carbonation. Hoppy, lightly sweet, lightly bitter finish is lightly dry.

nuplastikk (4658) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 24, 2014
Filtered orange-tan. Foamy off-white head. Brewhouse aroma, mild orange tones. Pretty boring IPA, 1.5 decades of recipe development huh? The malts are run of the mill, and lack a toasty freshness. The hops are tame and on the lighter side for an IPA in 2014. Not a horrible brew, but pretty insipid, should shy away from glorious descriptions.
