COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-flavored hop assault delightfully lacking in balance. A combination of Centennial, Cascade, Simcoe and Columbus hops are used to produce pungent aromas of grapefruit, pine and citrus.

Reviewed 1/15/2013. 12 oz bottle into a Samuel Smith pint glass. A: Pours a golden amber color. The head is a one finger white color with poor retention. S: This seems to take the herbal/piny route as far as hop profiles go. There is a hint of grapefruit peel as well, but this is mostly pine. Underlying that even further are some biscuity malts and some Simcoe cattiness. The aroma isn’t quite my cup of tea, but it’s alright. T: Again with the piny hop profile to start. The hops come across as being generically bitter with no real hop flavors aside from a vague grapefruit finish. Only truly distinctive flavor note I can pick up is green tea in the midtaste. The finish gradually becomes a bit like - dare I say - Windex after some sips. It’s not particularly good, but it’s mild enough where I don’t really sweat drinking this too much. M: I enjoy the crisp dryness of the body, but the texture squeezes far too much hop harshness out of the flavors it seems. The lingering aftertaste is very resinous and oily. O: Apart from their solid Imperial Pumpkin Ale, I haven’t been impressed by Weyerbacher’s offerings - this being no exception. I hate how most middle-of-the-road IPAs (like this) are all about generic bitterness instead of complex hop/malt interplay. Meh.

radio_nowhere (1145) - Maryland, USA - JUN 22, 2015
4 oz. draft at the brewery in Easton, PA; ambery-golden color with off-white head. Aroma notes of strong tropical citrus/pine hops and lighter caramel malt sweetness. Taste adds some toasted grain, light spices, resin and dried fruit zest bitterness. Medium body, moderate-low carbonation, dry with citrus/pine bitter finish. Maybe their attempt at a west coast IPA but a smidgen too much.

SteveOrz85 (102) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2015
12 oz bottle served fridge chilled into pint glass. Short white head. Some lacing. Beer is coppery orange in color. Light hoppy aromas with notes of citrus and pine. Taste is lightly sweet and medium bitter with notes of pine, citrus and grass. Medium bodied. Thin texture. Somewhat abrupt bitter finish. Decent IPA. Lacking some crispness. Nothing to rave about.

Poured from a bottle. Appearance is a copper color with decent head. Aroma is citrus hops, resinous, piney. Taste is hop forward, with some malt balance, bitter finish. Palate is thin. Overall pretty good but not amazing.
