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.

Sampled at 2009 Pittsburgh Brufest. Poured a vibrant amber color with a small white head. Decent aromas of floral hops and citrus. Good flavors of grapefruit and caramel, finished bitter but was balanced well by the malt. A solid IPA.

This Micro Brewery was visited on Mother’s day on our trip back from Cleveland. The place was packed. we enjoyed lunch at the bar. The IPA pored a clody amber in a tall 16 oz glass. the head was small and dissapated. The ale had the common citrus of a cascade hops, with some balanced bitterness. The finish was smooth with some bitterness.

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.

12oz can, shared. Clear amber color. Thin white head. Little, sort of bubbly head, couple bits of lace. I dig the Warhol-style can. Smooth, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Earthy hop, lightly spicy. Good malt balance to this. Toasty malt, light caramel, lightly spicy malt. Some grapefruit. Light to moderate sweet taste. Moderate to bigger bitter. Bigger malt profile than your typical IPA, but not malty-sweet. It’s seems malty in an intentional way, taste is more bitter forward still. Very unique stuff, I like it quite a bit... A good change of pace from your typical every day dime-a-dozen IPA, this one has some thought and courage behind it, courage to do something different..

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2011
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

Dogbrick (7243) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - FEB 27, 2011
Sample at the brewpub. The beer is a clear orange color with a medium white head that recedes steadily. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of citrusy hops and sweet malt. Medium body with flavors of citrus fruits and hops, along with sweet malt undertones. The finish is moderately hoppy with a citrus aftertaste. Decent overall.

Not too bad. Hop favors aren’t that exciting. Not any huge negatives, standard ipa.

Pre Bamberg bash tasting at Colin’s house with Mr Bois and James. Thanks Colin. Light haze on this deep gold beer. Decent pale cream coloured head. Palate is airy and minerally crisp. Caramel malt with a slight oxidised flavour. Light piney hops. Little hop spice. Semi.dry finish with a bitter linger.

Can sample at the Rivertowne tasting at Blacklick Wine & Spirits on 4/10/14. Clear amber pour with a thick off-white head. Aroma of malt, pine and spicy hop. Malty flavor up front, giving way to grassy and earthy hops before a bitter, earthy finish.
