hopdog (8940) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 2, 2007
Sampled from Growler provided by TomDecapolis. Poured a deep and cloudy golden color with a small sized white head. Aromas of fresh green hoppiness, grainy, oranges, lemons, and light pine. Tastes of that same fresh hoppiness, citrus, with a trace of caramel.

Hazy amber color with a medoium sized, off white head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine, toast, floral hops, citrus fruits. Taste of much of the same, with a grapefruit finish.

On tap at the Brewpub: Hoppy aroma of pine, grapefruit, and Simcoe. Poured amber in color with a small white head. Good lacing. Lightly sparkling. Clear. Medium bitter, medium sweet flavor. Tasted of hops, grapefruit, pine, resin, and caramel malts. Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Hoppy finish is not overly bitter.

kramer (4958) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 6, 2007
On tap, King of Prussia. Pours a slightly hazy copper under a small off-white head that receded to a creamy thin ring. Nose is bigger than the whole line-up combined the day I was there. Citrusy and grapefruity hops over a heavy bready malt base. Still pretty light on the malt in the flavor, and a touch of alcohol on the finish. Nice medium body with perfect soft carbonation yielding a little creaminess to the texture. The best of the bunch the day I was there, but still nothing to rave about.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - FEB 1, 2007
Growler from the King of Prussia location. Pours a hazy golden orange with an average creamy white head that left some lacing. Aroma of orange peels, lemons, yeast, pine, bready and light caramel. Flavor was bready, caramel and lightly toasted malts, some pine and various citrus. Liked the malt and hop balance on this one. Nice IPA and nice use of the Simcoe.

PhillyCraft (3225) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2013
UPDATED: AUG 19, 2014 Growler, pours hazy orange with light to medium white head. Aromas and taste are in your face simcoe, bitter hops, balanced. Orange citrus notes with resiny dankness. Pretty solid ipa especially for local mall gear.

callmemickey (2779) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2014
Hazy orange body, medium sized white head with dense lacing. Assertive piney and citric bitterness...pure simcoe goodness. Medium bodied, appropriate carbonation and a boatload of bitterness. A classic at Rock Bottom KOP.

alobar (2778) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 27, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden color with a white soapy head. Aroma of citrus, hops, and some pine. Bitter hop flavor balanced by citrus and caramel malts. Very nice beer. One of the best at this location.

Damico (2579) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 29, 2012
Pours lemon yellow mostly clear, light cloudiness with an off white head. The aroma is light sweet and earthy hops. The flavor is clean and lightly bitter hops on a medium to lighter body. It ends lightly bitter and a bit dry, but not biting at all.

pineypower (2509) - Pine Barrens, New Jersey, USA - JAN 30, 2011
Pours out a moderately cloudy golden color with a two finger off white head. Nice aroma of citrus and pine hops and some sweet malty notes also. Taste is complex with nice typical simcoe hop flavors, citrus, some pine and some fruity and grainy malt notes in there also, bitter hoppy finish. Solid, drinkable IPA that is very drinkable.
