hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 12, 2007 On tap. Medium copper in color with a very small off white head. Light hoppy aroma with malts. Sweet tasting with a very light bitter finish. Neither balanced nor bitter enough. This version of an IPA did nothing for me and I would pass on it in the future. Rated on 7/13/04 5 4 4 4 11




Rerate. Tried again on 2/12/06 and billed as their ’Hopzilla’. Aromas of citrus, floral and light caramel. Tastes follow with a grapefruit bitter finish. Increased the #s.

Earlier Rating: 11/3/2004 Total Score: 3.5
A very good, although not elite, IPA. I’m partial to IPAs, and this one did most things right. Very quaffable.

egajdzis (6764) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2007
[Cask] Poured a hazy amber color with a small, white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of floral hops, light pine, grass, caramel malts, and toffee. Taste of citrus fruits, light pine, resin, caramel malts, and a lightly bitter finish.

3.6
TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JAN 26, 2007
On tap at the North Wales location on cask. Pours a lightly hazy golden orange with a medium bubbly off white head that left some lacing. Aroma of citrus, floral and some caramel malt. Flavors of the same orage and light pine. Caramel malt and a lingering hop bitterness. Paired nicely with the spicy steak fajita wrap I had for dinner.

3.2

Pours a hazy golden amber with a medium lt tan head. Aroma has light stonefruit, tea, and sweet maltiness. Flavor has some stonefruits and melon followed by caramel and a buttery note...toffee and earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel is medium and the finish is earthy/bitter with a touch of tropical fruit...lingering.

3.1
User37895 (3085) - - JUN 5, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2009 Poured an amber orange color with an initial head that was average, but which turned quickly to NOTHING. Hoppy aroma, not much else was detectable. Hops (more floral than piney) were present in the flavor, beginning through to the end. Malty background (light), with some bready / musty touches to the finish. Just another average IPA in my book. Re-rate, 1/08, draft at Newark location: Some saaz hops, some citrus, strong bitter noble hops with some toffee in there. Strong traditional IPA appearance. An ok IPA, nothing to write home about though. Re-rate, On cask at the Iron Hill "Cask & Ye Shall Receive" fest, 12/09, as "English IPA," and not impressive, slightly on the sweet side of an IPA. Descriptors more like my original rating on this one, numbers stay the same.
