COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Iron Horse Pale Ale is a boldly aromatic Northwest style pale ale. It pours a deep gold color with a thick white head that lingers in the glass. The first impression is the immense hop aroma that wafts out of the glass, thick with tropical fruit, floral, and grapefruit notes. Iron Horse makes for a great, sessionable, hoppy pale ale that makes hop lovers go crazy!

tderoeck (10343) - Gent, BELGIUM - JUL 29, 2017
19/VII/17 - 12Fl. Oz. can from a trade @ home - BB: just a pink blob on the bottom of the can (2017-1050) Thanks to Ryan for the trade!


Clear orange beer, big irregular yellow head, pretty stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: nice fruity start, bit dank, cheesy, little funky, thinking about sorachi ace? Citrus, grapefruit and some lychee. MF: ok carbon, medium to full body. Taste: lots of citrus, nice refreshing bitterness, perfectly balanced with a sweet caramel malty backbone. Aftertaste: nice bitter hops, citrus, some alcohol, lots of grapefruit, bit resinous, fruity, some pineapple, orange peel, lovely stuff!

Can sourced from Happy Harry’s, Fargo. Gold pour with a prominent, creamy white head. Aroma is fairly engaging. Some fresh floral character. Mountain meadow. A bit of cracked peppery. Mild pine sap. Gentle pale malts and a bit of caramel sweetness supporting. Dry, floral finish. Some grapefruit. Just a bit leafy. Medium body, bright carb. Nice.

malvrich (355) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 2, 2017
Undated can shipped from France44 into a tulip.
A: Poured 1" head over a mostly clear dirty gold body. Slow bubbles, very good retention and thick lace.
S: Loud citrus and tropical fruit scent Some peachy astringency.
T: Sharply bitter, tart and fruity at once, settling to mostly pine and pith. Sweet tropical aftertaste. IPAesque.
M: Light bodied with stiff bubble scrub. Dry finish cuts through the hop resin.
O: Very nice. Also, the pack carrier did have a date sticker but was rubbed out so I guess the brewer tried. I would buy this regularly if possible.

Sampled at GABF 2016. Yellowish-orange pour with a short off-white head. Aroma of grapefruit rind and tangerine. Taste of freshly cut grass, light pine, and mild citrus. A nicely done American Pale Ale.

3.5
Nuffield (4202) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - SEP 30, 2016
Great aroma. Floral and fruity, grapefruit strains easily identified in the tasting (without the benefit of the commercial description). Meaty finish. (Poured at the Ale Jail beer festival, St. Paul)

3.4
rosenbergh (11872) - Tampere, FINLAND - SEP 29, 2016
Draught at the Fargo Brewing Co Ale House, Fargo, ND. Clear golden color with a small to medium size white head. Fruity and grassy hops, mild bitterness, sweetness, hay and malt in the aroma. The flavor is fruity and citrusy hops, mild bitterness, dryness, juiciness and dryish maltiness. Very drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
