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.

Enjoyed on tap in an English pint glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with a moderately sized and fairly dense white head. The nose carries strong hop aromas. Citrus and pine, along with a strong note of Simcoe. Excellent. The palate nails the profile of a well-made example of the style. Moderate to strong bitterness up front, followed by some flavorsome resiny notes of pine and cattyness, a slight malt sweetness, before ending with a dry and lingering bitter finish. Overall, very well-made and pleasantly drinkable.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt and floral hops. Flavor features more hoppy bitterness and bready malts. Good IPA, although it’s more like a pale ale. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

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

Hazy amber brown color with nice foamy offwhite head. Aroma is caramel and citrus - pretty typical there. Flavor has a nice sweet caramel base with slight roastiness and good grapefruit citrus flavor. Lots of bitter hoppiness. Really good ipa.

Dixonian (1562) - 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.

Very nice IPA at the Pour House on the Northside. Slightly cloudy, Golden color, Not a lot of aromatic types but plenty of crisp bitter taste and full mouth.

lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2011
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.

Can. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

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.
