COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our search for a location to start this brewery took us across much of Lower Bucks County, many times traveling down the well known divider between northern Philadelphia, southern Bucks, and Montgomery Counties….County Line Road. One of the original names we thought of for the brewery was that of County Line Brewing Company. I don’t know how or why we didn’t settle on that, but in recognition of our location so close to Philadelphia and that potential namesake, we decided to pass the name on to our flagship IPA that comes in at 6.63% ABV and is chock full of Warrior, Chinook, Simcoe, and Zythos hops. It’s got a bready, slightly cracker-like malt backbone to counter some of that hop bitterness, but not so much that this four hop combination won’t put a smile on your face (or a giant pucker). It’s got a huge citrus-grapefruit note with a nice lingering hop bitterness showing a complexity that few hugely hop forward IPAs lack.

Poured into tulip a hazy copper with white head and good lace. While the commercial description said citrus, grapefruit as did many other reviews here I got a pine aroma and taste. Crisp pine air over a resin. Enjoyed

Pours a clear golden brown from the can with fluffy white head that dissipates to leave moderate lace. Aroma of piney and citrus hops with a caramel malt base. Taste follows, old school with pronounced bitterness and caramel malt to back the old school hops. Decent for what it is.

I poured it from the can into a glass. It pours orange and amber with a white head and lacing. The aroma is bitter hops and citrus. The taste is bitter, earthy hops, grapefruit, and cracker. It's very bitter. It fades into a salty dryness. This has lots of hoppy flavor and aroma. This is solid.

Pours light golden and somewhat hazy with an aroma of citrus. Tastes of exceptionally bitter pine. It's dry and bitter. It's light bodied with moderate carbonation. Wow, bitter.

Tasting at Barley Creek. An exquisite, fragrant, balanced, flavorful IPA with loads of pine and citrus. Dry, well attenuated finish.

Spindelphia (35) - Lambertville, New Jersey, USA - MAR 23, 2017
Nice slightly hazy orange hued appearance, with a strong citrus and piney aroma. It’s got a heavy hop bitterness that may turn some off. Lots and lots of grapefruit and pine. Lightly malty at the back end with plenty of lingering bitterness.

My favorite IPA! Love the slight citrus taste and hoppy classic base. It’s awesome in winter by fire in tall glass or in the summer on the beach out of the can. It feels lighter than it is, surprising that it’s as strong as it is. My husband requested our local liquor keep this in stock and now they keep it refrigerated.

From a 12 oz. can. Pours a clear gold with an off white head. Fruity nose. Flavors of grapefruit, orange and pineapple. Bitter finish.

I don’t know, this beer is fine. It’s kinda resiny and sticky and reasonably okay but nothing memorable.
