This is one of my favorite beers. I’ve never had it on tap, but I can get it at any distributor for a fairly reasonable price.

Amber moderate head. Nose is pretty malty, sweet. Taste is on the sweet side, balanced malts and hops, some citrus, a bit bitter on the finish. It's fine

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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very little to no aroma. Not much taste in your mouth or going down but definitely a nice hoppy dry after taste.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
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.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
