COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First of the new IPA ‘test batches’ each month starting the 4th week of March and roughly through August. These new IPAs will be done consecutively and are extremely limited: Only 15 barrels per batch. The IPAs will ONLY be available in draft to select bars and restaurants throughout Philadelphia, New Jersey and the Lehigh Valley (including the Weyerbacher Visitors Center). Each IPA will have a unique (and completely backstory-less) name like a random color or a verb.

PhillyCraft (3146) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 17, 2012
Draft at Capones, this is part of Weyerbachers experimental hop project. Poured a hazy orange, 1-2 finger white head with tiny bubbles. Aromas is very citrus and pine fueled, with a malty honey sweetness present as well. Taste is juicy hops, orange peel, pine wood. Lacing was thick and spotty especially at the edge of the sampler glass. Finshes bitter at first then leaves an lagery aftertaste which kind of turned me off. Everything was working well untill the finish/aftertaste. A decent selection from one of my favorite local producers. Get it while you can as it will probably never be bottled.
