chinchill (5313) - South Carolina, USA - SEP 17, 2017
On tap at the Media PA location. Pours golden-amber with good clarity and a very fine thick white head. Excellent lacing. Fruity and mild hop forward aroma. Moderately bitter flavor with hints of tropical and over-ripe fruits, wood, and biscuits. The aftertaste provides lingering bitterness with hop notes on a bready background. The body is a bit watery with medium carbonation.

I enjoyed a pint of this IPA on cask at the Phoenixville restaurant, and it was hoppy and delicious! The cask delivery obviously gave this beer a really smooth and drinkable body. The beer poured a light golden color with a pillow-like, soft off-white head. There are plenty of hops in this beer, with spicy and citrus flavors.

Can from the Maple Shade location. Pours unclear gold, white head, light and spotty lacing. Weird buttery malt thing, some grains. Off flavors. Odd dryness. Not too good.

Draft. Unusual aroma, slightly citrusy. Subdued hop flavor. Slightly bitter finish. Quite strong with ABV 7.5%. I prefer more classical IPA with more pronounced hop flavor.

3.3
DocLock (11025) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 21, 2015
Draft at Phoenixville. Gold pour, clear, with white head. Nose was hops, citrus. Tastes of citric hops, with a tropical fruity flavor, spicy, florals.

60minuteman (1765) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 3, 2014
A hazy like golden color, Plenty of bite to this IPA. Definitely an aroma of coconut as well as citrus, wheat, mild spices, pine, grass, flowers and hops. Citrus zest probably from lemon peel. Nice ABV to this one.

3.7
Nejhleader (1574) - Lemoyne, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Nice Amber color, hops are a real crisp pine hop flavour, lingers well, good aftertaste.

3.6
PhillyCraft (7919) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 10, 2014
On tap at echelon, pours clearish golden with nice lacing. Aromas and taste are bitter hops, spice, and oranges. Nice hoppy flavor on a lighter body. They definitely got everything out of a usually lackluster hop varietal.

3.9
pineypower (3346) - Ocean County, New Jersey, USA - SEP 2, 2013
Draft sample at Maple Shade and a growler. Pours out a moderate golden/amber color with a small off-white head. Aroma is of grainy/spicy rye bread, lemony/coconut Sorachi hops. Taste is complex, nice grainy rye notes, lemony coconut hop bitterness, light bitter fruits, a nice blend of rye bread with some lingering lemony bitterness. Really tasty.

Tap at Maple Shade. Pours out an attractive dark golden color with a one finger fluffy white head. Aroma is of citrus hops, nice tropical fruit notes and light malt. Taste is complex, citrusy./lemon notes, tropical fruits, light coconut, slight sweet malt balance and a nice bitter finish. Definitely an interesting hop, I liked this one a lot.

Ed5388 (3488) - Forked River, New Jersey, USA - AUG 16, 2013
Growler. Shared thanks to Dean. Pours a slightly hazy deep golden copper color with a thick off white head. Aroma of caramel malt, big citrus notes, and getting some papaya. Taste of caramel malt, citrus, lemon rind, and a piney bitter finish.
