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.

On tap at Rivertowne. Pours a hazy, amberish burnt orange colored body with a finger-width, frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a moderate lacing. Aroma is some dense grapefruits and thicker caramels. A light cystal, floral, and pine. Flavor is better with a sweeter grapefruit pine and floral with a touch of candy. Balancing caramel and a light crystal before this finishes dry with a nice, moderate bitterness. Leaves a lengthy aftertaste after a medium body and light carbonation. Overall, a solid IPA. Nice bitterness and grapefruity pine with a solid caramel balance. Not bad.

12 oz can from trade with mdg164. Pours hazy copper color with off white head. Aroma of caramel malts, grapefruit, pine and some earthiness. Similar flavor with the malts coming through stronger than the hops. Medium body with average carbonation. Thanks Marc.

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 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)

callmemickey (2874) - 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.

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.

12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours slightly hazy bright orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, caramel, toast, biscuit, light toffee, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity of citrus/floral hops and balanced sweet malts; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and balance of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA. Good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A bit too malty, but otherwise a nicely enjoyable IPA.
