COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Only the strong survive.

IPAs were originally brewed to survive the epic sea voyages from England to India. Ours is no different. Hailing from a firm malt background and loaded through and through with hops, this beer will surely survive the journey from your fridge to your couch.

UDBeernut (2010) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JAN 19, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2012 6 pack given to me for Xmas from baby sis. Pours a translucent tan capped by a off white head with good retention. Light bubbling carbonation rounds the picture. Nose is full of flower and light caramel. Taste is balanced, almost malt centric with cracker sweetness, add caramel, dash of flower hops. Bitterness is cutting as it warms. Add undertones of peach and grapefruit. medium bodied. Thanks sis. Rated via BeerBuddy

Bottle on 3/19/15. Pours a clear orangish-copper with a frothy white head. Nose is piney, citrus, some malt sweetness, metal. Taste is pine, citrus, grass, some malt, fruity, leaves with grass/resin for a while. Not super amazing but this is a go to IPA for me.

Bottle poured into half-pint imperial glass. Very fruity IPA with a slightly ambiguous malt balance. Better than I had expected. Nice lacing.

on tap at City Mechanics in Philadelphia; clear, amber color; citrusy hop aroma; a good, citrusy hoppy IPA; great citrusy hop flavor on a light bready malt base

AirForceHops (4081) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JAN 10, 2015
Draft at Issac Newton’s, Newtown, PA. The color is a clear gold with a orange hue. Head was small and didn’t last. Aroma leads me to believe it is a standard American IPA: orange and tropical fruit with moderate level for bread like malt character. The flavor has a bit more depth. Malts lean on the English side with a light earthy note. Hops are a blend of citrus upfront followed by a floral and mild pine hiding in the finish. Overall for me it is an extremely drinkabl, well made IPA that was easy to kill a pint. Bitterness is there with a dryness but not to aggressive. Classic in every sense.

skmikeg (1180) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 2, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2014 Pours amber reddish orange with a nice one finger off white head. Aroma is of pine, caramel, floral hops, sweet malts, toffee, and light citrus. Taste is similar to the aroma wit a bit more pine and citrus but still has a big malt backbone with caramel, sweet malts, bready malts, and maybe even some toffee. Has a medium body with a pretty creamy mouthfeel and a semi dry, semi bitter, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty nice east coast style ale that is pretty malty but still has a nice hop bite to it.

Very little to no aroma. Not much taste in your mouth or going down but definitely a nice hoppy dry after taste.

Underdogs88 (245) - New Jersey, USA - SEP 24, 2014
Woody, floral hop aroma with a high level of fruity esters and slight caramel. Appearance is gold with a white head with average retention. Hop flavor is medium with floral qualities. Malt flavor is bready with caramel notes. No diacetyl. Bitterness dries the beer out with a smooth bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium with medium carbonation. Overall, it's a well made example of an English ipa. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bulk_Carrier (2541) - Temporarily, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a fairly hazy dark red color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within about a minute. There was some light speckled lacing clinging here and there around the glass. The smell had a bittersweet citrus to piney hops with a nice balance of caramel malts here and there. The taste was the blend of the previously mentioned flavors but actually showed a weaker strength than I expected. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. The carbonation seemed somewhat subdued and not as sharp as I expected for an AIPA. Overall, this was not a bad beer. If it would’ve showed a bit more strength in the nose and flavor this one has a lot of potential to be a great one of its style but to me, it’s just an okay kind of beer.

Good tasting IPA. Pleasant initial taste with nice "hop" bite. Complex palate. A bit heavy for regular drinking.
