COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our I.P.A. pours an amber gold with a distinctively rich flavor, significant hop aroma and soft, white and creamy head. We blend two-row pale, two-row brewer’s and Carapils malts with the finest quality, Chinook, Cascade, and Mt. Hood hops to brew our complex and very tasty version of India Pale Ale.
Malts: Domestic Two Row Pale, Brewer’s & Carapils
Hops: Chinook, Cascade, & Mt. Hood

Note: At some point the recipe was changed to include Mount Hood hops instead of Fuggles but it is not known when that change took place.

Not sure why this is listed as no longer in production, and not sure why I got it in cans. Oh well, let the fucking bean counters figure out this pedestrian bullshit. At any rate, this was a solid IPA, hazy straw, off white head, resiny hops, high IBu but well balanced. Bitter finish. Yeah, man!

Iphonephan (7283) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2015
From a 12 oz bottle shared at home. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Grasy nose. Flavors of citrus and a touch of toffee. Bitter finish.

BroSpud (2247) - , Massachusetts, USA - SEP 4, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours amber with a pillowy thick head that left a ton of lacing. Nice earthy malt notes with enough hop flavors to complement nicely. This was much tastier than expected.

Drake (14078) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 14, 2015
12 ounce bottle, 3/31/15. Hazy orange, fine dark floating particles, thin creamy off-white head. Decent retention. Aroma of tropical, citrus hops, biscuit malt. The taste is tropical, citrus hops, a weird twangy note, pale malt, sawdust. Medium bodied, mild lingering bitterness.

12oz into a harpoon pint. Tons of sediment in the pour, cloudy glazed orange, mild amber sunshine. Head is built fast then melts to a thin layer of bubbles, islands, lite lacing. Aroma of pine syrup, sap, grassy hops, strong malt backbone. Taste of pine, resin, thick and glossed over orange syrup, mild hop attack, flat carbonation, difficult to fully enjoy. Could be an old bottle, but probably not. Its OK.

Leighton (22307) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle in CT shared with the sibs during Upwords. Pours hazy, deep gold with a frothy, off-white head. The aroma holds earthy, herbal hops and toasted grains. Light to medium sweet flavor with lots of toasted malt, bread, grains, resinous and herbal hops, pine. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Piney and resinous on the finish, with further grainy malts. OK.

Braudog (6836) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - OCT 13, 2014
Bottle. Rusty orange and light-resistant, with a nice standing head of firm pillowtop. Well balanced all the way, with a subtle yet rustic aroma of woodsy hops. This is a meaty drink, with a full body. I like the equilibrium here, with a robust malty beer as its base, and a nice earthy hop finish. (#5816, 10/13/2014)

ellolovey (483) - Georgia, USA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle. Deep hazy light amber color with thick stick white head. Aroma of citrus and toffee. Well balanced. Nice hop bitterness followed by a sweet malt backbone. Nothing special. Just a solid IPA.

3.2
Mep3222 (1636) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Dank hop aroma with a malty backbone. Never really knew what dank smelled like, but this smells dank. Not bad, just dank. Flavor is malt, but almost a syrupy malty. Not great. Hops provide some balance and a slight bitter finish, but this is a malt dominated, not quite balanced ipa. Ok but nothing special. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On Tap at the brewery in Troy, NY. Pours copper with long lived white head and nice lacing. Aroma is of caramel malt, ripe fruit and hint of hops. Body is medium and crisp. Citrusy hops caramel malt, ripe fruit combine on the palate. Finish is long and bitter. One of many OK IPAs.
