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.

12oz can. Rating #51. Clear light copper pour with a white head. Mild hop aroma with a decent amount of caramel maltiness. Astringent flavor with a mild aftertaste. Interesting, (2842)

After taking in the weak aroma of stale hops and seeing the flat bubble-less orange pour, I thought I was going to be let down. Well as far as IPAs go, I was, but for this brewer and compared to the aroma it was great. Taste was light malt in the front with very little carbonation. The aftertaste, though, is when you are hit by hops so big you would think you were drinking an IIPA. Very nice finish. Would like to try this again.

Decent IPA. Nothing real special just an all around good beer. Well balanced with a dry finish.

Fratto (2524) - Arlington, Texas, USA - JAN 31, 2011
Bottle from thirdeye11. Dark orange pour with a white head. Aroma is a little malt, nutty, and soft. Taste is old veggies, malt, almonds, astringent, and roasted.

Bottle. So this is the first beer I have ever poured that was all head. In disbelief, I stood back slightly and looked at the glass for any signs of an orangish liquid at the bottom... not a millimeter to be found! Aromas are OK, but pedestrian. A bit of funk (was this one infected?) with some grainy malts and light hops. Flavor was similar and it just tasted like and IPA that rode around in the back of the truck for the summer. Malt with a little bit of hops and a slightly skunky old edge to it. I’ll try this again, but I’m a little saddened that this isn’t the new Holy Grail of IPA’s.

Another random note from my spring training baseball trip. Not really sure what this means, but I drank it at some point: Malty bitter. sharp. dry. bready. Little harsh, little ok. 7.2

callmemickey (2273) - 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.

italianjohn (2234) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 4, 2013
Pale golden orange pour, thin soapy white head and thin striped lacing ... aroma of grassy, light citrusy hops and light caramel malts .... taste is of grassy, light citrusy and light floral/piney hops, caramel malts .... backbone is malty and of dry bitter hops ..... finish is dry and bitter with a lingering bitter hoppy bite .... british/east coast ipa ... sessionable and ok, but 1.5 decades spent developing this is a bit disappointing

boxofrane (1887) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Can. Pours clear copper with a large off white head. The aroma has piney, resinous hops and light citrus. The taste is fairly dry, earthy, bitter and limitedly balanced. Decent.

Hoppy aroma. Earthy, thin, with a somewhat trashy finish. The hops are there, but it seems a bit watered down.
