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.

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.

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.

Draft at Pittsburgh location. Pours a golden amber, white head. Hops, slight bitterness, sweet malt, and grain. Balanced and easy to drink.

Aurelius (4634) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 30, 2008
Nice, nice APA aroma - balanced, not over-the-top. Caramel, toast, medium hoppy, medium sweet. Bitter, sweetish. One of the best brewpub examples of the style that has largely been rode hard and put up wet. Candied at times. Prominent orange, toast in the finish.

Please ignore my numbers, I rate by how I enjoy them and I don’t care for hoppy IPA. You ask, then why did I taste? Well, because it was there. THis is as good example of an IPA that I have tasted, has all the good attributes. It is a little darker than you typical IPA, kinda orange brown. Bitter medicinal syrupy qualities coat the inside of your mouth. Like chewing on green grapefruit rinds? Give this a try, will not disappoint. Certainly a good example of an IPA. Finish is bitter lingering that lasts and lasts.

Poured an orange color with aromas of biscuit malt, light pine and citrus. Flat or are the light dough with some pineapple Nd pine. Flavors were watered down a little nit. Bonus points for being in a can.

Cavie (4012) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 1, 2011
Bottle courtesy thirdeye11. Pours a clear orange color with a light white head. Aroma of dry hops, and light grain. Sour flavor. Sour grain that finished quite roughly. Ouch

Nate (3806) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2007
Draught sample at brewery. Medium amber reddish body with thin foamy lacing head. Starts with big juicy hops, fresh with grapefruit and resin. Good sweet malt with light caramel and biscuit. Finish is a big bitter chomp, dry, with a lasting bitter coating to the tongue. Medium body with medium carbonation. Floral hops nose with fresh grapefruit oil and resin. Really nice balance and goes down a bit too easily. Very nice IPA. It’s a refreshing step back from the IIPAs that are showing up more and more.

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.

callmemickey (3566) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Hazy orange body, large off-white head, soapy lacing. Grapefruit, pine, too much biscuity malt. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation, too sweet for my liking.
