Growler from treyrab, thanks Trtey. Dark orange/gold color. This had a nice citrusy hop aroma, grapefruit maybe. Very smooth hop flavor, more grapefruit, but with no acidity. Quite a nice IPA, good job Selins Grove and thanks again Trey.

On tap at the Selin’s Grove brew pub. nicely balanced IPA. Some really good hop notes in the aroma with a good malt kick flavor addition. A twinge bitter on the backend, but not bad.

Sampled on draft at the brewery this beer poured a bright orange-amber color with a medium sized soapy white head. The aroma was strong fruity hops but lacking a bit in complexity. The flavor was strong bitter grapefruit and pine with sweet yet bitter malts underneath. The finish was insanely long log with tart and bitter grapefruit. Good.

Hazy light amber with a thick head. Bright hop aroma with hints of wood, nice citrus. Smells awesome. Dry, pithy, herbal with just a hint of almost fruity sweetness. Really nice example.

Draught sample at Jupiter fest. Warm dark golden amber, hazy with tight off-white head. Bright hoppy aroma that has a fresh grain background too. Fruity aroma with tropical fruit, orange, citrus, and juicy flavors. Woody and piney too. Nice stuff with sure session potential.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap @ Jupiter Beerfest. Moderate malt aromas of caramel and roasted, heavy hops of orange and pine, light broth for the yeast. Head is small, frothy, white with good lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is clear amber. Flavor starts lightly sweet and moderately acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is light to medium, watery yet a bit slick and has a lively carbonation. Great aromas and flavors with good balance. I’m looking forward to finding this locally.

Tasted at Jupiter beerfest. This was actually quite good! Orange pour wtih a nice head. Aroma is full of citrus hops. I get lots of different citrus, grapefruit, lemon and calamondin. Flavor has a great hop bite full of grapefruit peel and some nice malts to finish this one off...yum.

Tap at JCBF09. Wonderful smelling IPA with a hazy burnt orange color. Nose is fantastic with lots of floral and citrus hops, like smelling fresh grapefruits and apricots. Taste is very hoppy but not near as bitter as I was expecting, very well balanced with alot of lasting caramel. Hits of orange and a unidentifiable spiciness make this quite complex and different. Very very good.
