copying from tasting notes. Bottle. I was impressed with this IPA. Nice pour and aroma. Not the best of each but good none the less. Could have used alittle more hops.

22oz bottle, dunno not crazy about this one, just doesnt taste bright or anything tastes quite muddled and overbearing... strange, probably needed to drink alot fresher, but just never struck me.. perhaps its the amount of british hops that sinks this one like the lusitania

big hop bomb. This one really really has a balance towards hops. Lots and lots of spicy, herbal, and resiny flavors coming through. aroma is pretty floral, but with some hops spice and resien to it as well. pouts light copper color with a head that stays throught the drink. medium oily palate. alright.

On draft at Zeno’s. Pours a clear coppery amber color with a medium beige head. Nice lacing. Aroma of faint tangy citrus hops. Taste is faintly hoppy with hints of mild citrus and floral flavors.

22 oz. bottle pours out a clear copper that produces a medium light tan head. Aroma of caramel, hay, and pepper. Medium body, light carbonation, very dry and somewhat astringent. Sweet caramel malt flavors are overshadowed by a spicy bitter citrus in a lingering finish. The basic character of this is that of an English IPA, with the hops overdone, especially the Kent and Styrian Goldings.

Bottle via JB175. Amber color. Smell of hops, citrus, spice, caramel, pine, zest and malt. Malt and caramel dominate and take most of the flavor away from the citrus and hop taste. Still good but the aroma was better.

Sept. 22, 2007; 22 oz. bottle. Got off to a bad start here . . . a bottle chilling unmolested for the past day still spewed a quarter of its over-carbonated contents all over the kitchen counter. :-( Huge, rocky head with white-wash lacing that reminds me of Cooperstown’s Backyard IPA. After tasting, I wonder if they didn’t share the recipe. Runs on the malty side, which some IPA-lovers may consider a sin. Bready and slightly sour at the same time, there’s little complexity here. Enjoyed this quite a bit, but habitués of West Coast beer halls may take offense at the liberties it takes with the style.

Bad foxtail tap. Brownish-orange brew. Bocky malt aroma without much hopping and toast, lightly fruity. Fruity flavor and almost lagerish. Lots of grain bitter, overbrewed hops, woody flavors, medium-light swe3etness. Residual bitterness that builds slightly in the finish, but doesn’t cling. Had this back to back with Yard’s Philadelphia PA, and the Yard’s won. Fair - not great.

Strong IPA, but a little too strong for regular consumption. I would like to find this on tap somewhere, but there are better bottled IPAs out there for the same price.

Good, solid, classic intrepretation of the IPA. I like comparing this to HopDevil, becuase of the Chester County proximitiy....a bit stronger than Victory’s but less spice (a burly IPA). Good drinking can be found in this bottle....grab some!
