Stonefly India Pale Ale 6.8% ABV This is our nod to the time-honored vintage hops that made American IPA’s so great. Hops like Cascade, Centennial and even the long forgotten Chinook are showcased here for their unique flavors and aromas. The bitterness is moderate while supporting the direct burst of hop fruitiness throughout the beer. A delightfully quaffable American IPA.

Utterly awful. Metallic flavors, unlikable earthiness, bitter with lacking malts. Bad.

joejames (388) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 22, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass. Pours cloudy yellow/orange, two finger, quick off white head. Decent lacing and some retention. Aroma of apricots and pine. Taste is on the bitter side with sweet caramel in the background. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, resin mouth feel. Finishes lingering bitter. Tasting notes of apricot, bitter herbs, spruce, caramel, grapefruit and melon. Not bad.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a hazy bronzed golden orange with a two finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. A good amount of white clingy and ringy lacing glazed around the sides of the glass. The smell had a decent citrus to piney hops overcoating a delicate caramel malt. The taste had pretty much the same with a sticky piney aftertaste leading to sticky dry finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionability about it. The carbonation was there and the bitterness is there but allows a decent sticky citrus to sharpen and delicately stroll across my tongue. Overall, this was a pretty good AIPA that I would have again. It definitely had a different mouthfeel, but still everything else seemed spot on.

jgb9348 (5232) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - FEB 15, 2015
Rich, hazy deep copper and amber coloured body with a rich, two centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of resin, grapefruit, passionfruit, pine and a good deal of malt to accompany those hops. Medium-bodied; Assertive grassy and resinous flavour from the hops up front with a lot of malt backbone and some subtle apricot and caster sugar sweetness near the end. Aftertaste shows a lot of earth and hops, but also some graham crackers, yeast, apples and quite a bit of floral and nutty hops. Overall, a nicely balanced East Coast (without a doubt) IPA with a lot of hop character and that rich malt backbone to show its not from the West Coast. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Whole Foods in Arlington (Clarendon), Virginia on 01-November-2014 for US$1,99 sampled at home in Washington on 14-February-2015.

dhatton (234) - Mendham, New Jersey, USA - FEB 7, 2015
Cloudy golden body with tint of orange. Off-white head with some lacing. Scents of tropical fruits, pepper, and pine. Taste is similar to the aroma, however, there’s an underlying maltiness present. Bitter, dry finish that wasn’t as crisp as I would’ve liked.

skmikeg (1472) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - JAN 18, 2015
Pours hazy orange with a half finger white head with decent lacing. Aroma is of floral hops, citrus, pine, grassy hops, and done light sweet malts. Taste is about the same as the aroma with the addition of some light tropical fruit and peach notes. Has a medium body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi-moderately bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a decently tasty, slighty above average ipa.
