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.

Enjoyable IPA overall. Really good looking brew with nice color and a good forming head. Ok aroma but not enough sweet hop smell. Good tasting and not much left to the palate. Enjoy.

UPDATED: AUG 17, 2014 Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer pours a golden color with a small white head. There is a light flowery hop aroma. The flavor is moderately flowery and fruity hops and grows a bit dry on the finish.

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

WVHouseofBeer (889) - Kissimmee, Florida, USA - NOV 14, 2009
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.

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.

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..
