I Truly love this pale ale. Easily quaffable yet with plenty of aromatic hops. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Smells like a bale of fresh hops. Wonderful aroma. Medium to dark gold in color. Flavor is a great balance between slightly toasted malt, hop spiciness and true, fresh hop flavors. The only thing keeping this from scoring higher is that I wish there was a slight bit more hop twang at the finish. A great session beer for hop lovers.

Amber in color, lacy white head, fruity & floral aroma, I agree with jca_lbi in that this IPA doesn't have the 'west coast' hoppiness as the brewery claims, spicy & hoppy finish, citrusy flavors as well, excellent IPA

Amber with lasting foamy lacy offwhite head; aroma is sweet spicy hoppy and notes of tea; Flava is richly complex with blended notes of sweet fruity spicy tea; feels medium with just enough fizz to tantalize the tongue; finishes dry and slightly bitter

Nice floral, hops aroma. Golden honey color, nice head. Smooth carb, watery. Very hoppy to taste, a bit too bitter but clean. Nice IPA with bitter finish. Good beer.

mwoolley (5) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 7, 2006 does not count
Dark amber-oak appearance with a slim head. Enticing fresh hop aroma, balanced with a hint of roasted malt. The taste does not disappoint, with an excellent balance of medium malt followed by the crisply-proportioned hop finish that lingers enjoyable in the top of your mouth. This is the best Nodding Head beer I tried and the only one I would order again.

Eastern PA does APA’s right. Nearby Stoudt’s produces another favorite. This was by far the best brew I imbibed at Nodding Head and is a highly quaffable, sessionable brew. Fills a glass with its brassy body and shaving cream head. Delightfully hoppy. Although the aromas are complex, I am told it solely uses Cascades, with which, living in the PNW, I am intimately accustomed to. However here, the Cascades are let to shine like in few other brews. Giving off a pinyness, floralness, and spiced forest character. The flavor demonstrates similar Cascade complexity with the only detraction a slight soapy pinyness on the finish. Outstanding.

on tap-pours an off white head that laces and gold color. Aroma is citrus hops-grapefruit. Taste is citrus hops-grapefruit, bitter, secondary medium malt. Mild carbonation.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours a burnt amber in color with a fluffy white head. Aroma is oof citrus/tropical fruits. The flavor is full of fruit and citrus with a nice sweet bite. Ther is plenty of malt to balance the overall flavor. Really enjooyable.
