COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This India Pale Ale is an exciting beer with a floral in aroma and an incredible hop flavor. The maltiness is increased (over a regular pale ale) to help balance the aggressive hop usage. This contributes to the higher alcohol content as well.

Picked up a six pack for my own flight at the house. Significant improvement from pale ale but probably still less than average for me.

Pumpkin Orange color little clarity shows shadows. No head retention slight bog appears from carbonation. Aroma is malt forward, a honey like sweetness from the hops as well. The hop flavor is minimal mostly spice and some slight gummy citrus aromatics. The beer is malt forward not my cup of tea for an ipa. It does have a good level of drinkability and the bitterness appears to be well rounded.

Draft in May 2014. Pour was orange with average head and splotchy lacing. Aroma of faint resin, some lighter fruits, floral. Flavor was floral, earthy, herbal, some lighter fruits, light caramel backbone. Mouthfeel was average for the style in body and carbonation. Mediocre.

matty (383) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 7, 2014
Draft at Camp Hill brewpub. Pours a clear gold color with a 1/2" white head that disappears leaving a thin film. Nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of pine and resin with a hint of malt. Medium body, taste leans more to the hop side than the malt but not overwhelming. Dry finish. Not great, but I've had worse. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Transfer from BA review on 9-23-12- Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance Pours a clear golden-orange color with a huge white head. The head fades rather slowly as it is quite thick and leaves a nice level of lacing on the sides of the glass. Smell - The aroma is heaviest of a biscuit and pine nature. Mixed with these aromas are some lighter notes of a citrus and earthy nature. Taste The taste begins with a biscuit and bready base with a nice dose of citrus hop flavor. Initially it is also sweetened with some lighter fruit flavors up front. As the taste advances it dries out some with more hop flavors come to the tongue. At the end, some heavier notes (but not too heavy) of a pine and earthy hop flavor come to the tongue, leaving a slightly bitter flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel The body of the beer is on the medium side; decent creaminess with a light chewiness. The carbonation is on the average side as well. Fairly nice for the hop flavors but maintaining a good drinkability. Overall A decent IPA with some nice pine flavors.

Ok ipa. Very hoppy and quite a bit of floral notes. Pour is a nice light amber with thin head.
