COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A west coast-style IPA with golden-amber color, rocky white head, and a big, citrusy character with notes of fresh oranges from both the abundance of American hops and the addition of Sweet Orange Peel to the brew. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this beer will benefit Operation Homefront (www.operationhomefront.net), an organization that provides emergency financial and other assistance to the families of our service members and wounded warriors.

This can says operation homefront. Big clear darker orange color with a thick rocky head. Smell of pine. Thick resinous initial flavors but its not viscous, weird. Large bodied flavor of grapefruit rind,m I think, wew. Must be more than 7% fer sure, wew. Such a giant ipa in a can. Rototiller nasty dig into your palate ipa. Will never be impressed with the rudeness of this style, wew.

On tap at pgh beer Fest. Orange pour with a white head. Floral hop aroma, some citrus orange aroma, no vanilla/maple like the cigar city version. Is this one on maple bats? Taste is just slightly bitter. Finishes slightly sweet.

LinusStick (2838) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2014
On tap at Mad Mex Robinson. Delicious IPA. One of the few made on this side of the country that can truly be classified as "west coast style". Aroma was nice. Floral and grapefruit hops. Sticky and resinous. Pour was a nice medium gold with a one finger off white head. Taste was very bitter and hoppy. Grapefruit, pine and bread crust with a nice bitter green hop finish. Medium carbonation. Nicely unbalanced with the hops taking center stage. A little thin in the mouth feel.

Nate (3710) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap at Brunzies. Very mild hop aroma to this one, lightly floral. Coppery amber clear with thin lacing white head. Medium body with heavy carbonation. Nice hop flavor and spicy with some dank quality that’s subtle. Light sweetness from malt. Bitter finish, caramel notes. Smooth after with lingering sharp bitter character.

Good session PA. Aroma of hops, yeast, pine and weed. The weed came and went but it was there. Oh, it was there. Too bitter for how light the brew was. The hops dominated the flavor but the aroma was the kicker here.

hopdog (8867) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 24, 2014
12oz can. Drank from can - poured, from what I can tell an amber color with an off white head. Floral hops, grass, and some lighter caramel.

boxofrane (2085) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 12, 2013
Draft. Pours clear orange with a medium sized white head. The aroma is spicy, with grapefruit and light florals. Taste is light bitter spicy, and kicks the palate a bit. Very nice.

callmemickey (2661) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Dark golden body, medium sized white head, soapy lacing. Nose and flavor show citric, grassy and floral hops. Lightly sweet malt comes through a bit. Medium bodied, moderate carbonation, pleasant bitterness in the finish. A solid, well-rounded IPA.

On tap at Beer Market. Pours a hazy orange with a thick white head. Aroma of perfume, bubble gum, caramel malt. Flavor also pretty heavy of the bubble gum, also some light fruits, caramel malt, and grassy hops. A little odd, as the bubble gum tastes pretty strong to me, but it’s not bad either. 7/4/6/3/13 (3.3/5)
