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.

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.

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

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.

Can thanks to DrSilverworm. Hazy light gold pour with a small head that fades to a very thin ring. Aroma is pretty malty for an IPA. Caramel and sugar cookies mostly with some citrus and floral hops. Taste is juicy sweet with not much bitterness to balance. Spicy and citrus hops are there to go with the caramel malt. Medium to full body and not much carbonation which hurts it I think. Not really my kinda IPA but certainly not bad.

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

malrubius (1684) - Springfield, Vermont, USA - APR 27, 2014
Can from Heinens. Caramel colored with lasting head and lace. Spicy hop aroma with some pine. Some mild toasty malts and some fruity malts with a lasting bitter rindy hop finish. One of those American/English hybrids. Pretty good. Maybe ciould have been fresher, but I couldn’t see a date code.

tcane7 (1660) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2013
Can. Pours a cloudy amber with thin beige head and some soapy lace. Nose dominated by malt, mostly caramel, with some grass and light citrus. Light body with a very bitter finish. Not for me - malty palate wrecker.

Poured on tap at a bar at Hidden Valley snow tubing. Ok IPA. Too bitter. Too thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dixonian (1561) - Plano, Texas, USA - FEB 4, 2011
12oz bottle thanks to thirdeye11. Burnt orange color with lots of white head. Citrus hop aromas - pretty well balanced with enough malt to tame the bitterness. Not a bad IPA that I’d drink again.

Poured into a pint glass. 4.0 A: Hazed amber brown color. One and a half fingers of creamy off-white head with average retention and a good bit of lacing. 4.0 S: Pretty good aroma. Equal mixture of hops and malts. Malts offer a good bit of toffee and caramel to a lesser extent. Hops are citrusy and earthy with orange being more apparent. A bit of Chinook-like cat piss and yeastiness too. Pretty good. 3.5 T: Earthy and refreshing. Moderate-heavy bitterness, earthy hops with some citrus and pine, and caramel and toffee malts. Yeastiness is a bit heavy handed, but otherwise pretty good. 3.5 M: Heavier medium body. Good moderate carbonation that is just a tad bity. Could be a bit creamier and a bit less chewy yeast. 3.5 D: Not a bad beer, but I’d prefer it to be a bit cleaner. I like yeastiness to a degree, but this is a tad too much for this beer
