Tap @ Springfield. Amber/copper w fair off white head. Aroma is moderate hops & lt/med roast malt. Flavor is the middle of medium bodied, semi sweet, lt/med roast malt & moderate hops, decent bitterness w a creamy smooth mouthfeel. An OK IPA but nothing to write home about.

A standard but tasty IPA centered around hop bitterness rather than aroma. Medium bodied and smooth. Definite pine bitterness in the finish. Best at room temperature as some fruity citrus notes become apparent.

I loved the fact that this beer has such a dominating hop fest going on. Pale copper appearance and cloudy, with mot much of a head. The aroma and the taste are overwhelming. Balances out nicely at the end. I would like to drink more of this one.

UPDATED: MAY 5, 2004 Re-rate: I had this again at Springfield location and it seems to have been reformulated. Cascade and Willamette hops are now front and center in this IPA. Now it truly is an ultra-hoppy IPA.

Nice IPA on tap. Very much like Pikeís IPA with slightly less bitter taste.

UPDATED: FEB 19, 2003 Springfield, PA. Dare I say it? Yea... OK -they went overboard on the hops on this one. (and I call myself a hophead). Aroma is rich, spicy, floral, citric - loaded with hops. Flavor is dominated by hop flavor and is so loaded with hops it tasted like eating fresh hop pellets. I like hop flavor, but that was too much. Fair malt presence kept it within the realm of balance. Not overly bitter - just alot of hop flavor. Copper color, attractive, but no head (probably poured that way on purpose).
