COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditionally made strong & highly hopped so it would keep on its long journey, from England to India during British rule. Ours is a wonderfully bitter beer with a spicy aroma, some fruity characteristics and a lingering hop finish. A great aperitif!

UPDATED: DEC 22, 2013 I have had this beer lots of times now and it remains in my top 3 IPAís of all time. Served on-tap at the Selinís Grove Brewpub into a pint glass.

A - Pours hazy orange with a nice creamy one finger tall white head, dissipating down to a light film, leaving light lacing down the glass.

S - Smells of bright citric hops, pine resin, tropical fruits; most notably grapefruit; and sweet caramel malt. Good balance overall all things considered. An absolute hop bomb.

T - Tons of bright citric hops up front giving way slowly to a mix of tropical fruits and sweet caramel malt. The hops are strong but not to the point of being overpowering and the other flavors offer just enough contrast to keep it in balance. The finish has plenty of hop bitterness, lingering for some time. One of my all time favorites, grab some if you can.

M - Medium body and flavor with moderate carbonation. Creamy feel with plenty of lingering hop bitterness in the finish. The alcohol creeps in a tiny bit toward the end but it isnít a big deal.

O - One of my favorite IPAís period. I only wish he didnít "tweak" it so much. Just stick with the one winning recipe and have it on all the time.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2013
Growler from the brewery. Pours turbid orangy copper with 1-finger of lacy off-white head. Nose is very fruity, with tangerine, mango, caramel malt. Tastes caramel malty, smooth, complex, with mid-palate fruity notes of mango,pineapple, tangerine, and some berry notes. More fruity than piney or resiny, this one is very good.

Growler courtesy of Matt McCue. Thanks, bro. Congrats on your new job at PSU-Berks. Pours slightly opaque with nice head that leaves significant lacing. Nose is under bripe peaches, fruity aldehydes and mineral water. first sip is stone fruits, mild pineapple with spicy east coast IPA flavors but a nice grapefruit with sugar. finish is clean with some lingering bitterness.

3 growlers from Selin's Grove, 3 flat beers. This one had the most carbonation. Great citrusy aroma, not too bitter. Very enjoyable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at Selinís Grove. Hazy copper pour, decent frothy head. Nose and flavor marked with nice fresh grassy hop, notes of grapefruit and touches of lemon zest, and some caramel and spice notes in the back as well. Clean and well made; not amazing, but very tasty.
