COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The discovery of the true I.P.A. (India Pale Ale) made right here in Slippery Rock. The British added hops to oak barrels to help preserve the beer for its long voyage to British-controlled India. Brewed in the same English tradition, we dry-hopped our ale, giving the beer a very aromatic quality as it travels to your mug.

tcane7 (1674) - Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 13, 2013
Draft at the brewpub. Pours an golden orange with just a wisp of head and some soapy lace. Nose of grapefruit, tangerine, grass. Medium body, mild to moderate bitterness. Decent hop flavor with a slightly off-putting finish.

Blairgus (4536) - California, USA - JUN 4, 2017
4 June 2017, tap at North Country. Light copper, clear, no bubbles. Nose is light dry grassy hops. Med body and mildly fizzy. Sweet, hints of raisin, alcohol, orange juice. Nice.

Can. Nose mild with a touch of crystal malt, pour chunky orange-amber with lots of extra carbonation and a rocky-foamy beige head. Taste strongly and surprisingly bitter, low but persistent sweetness, touch rough around the edges, earthy-green hops at points but not always, bit of mint after the toasted/toffee finish, hint of spice. Heavy medium-full body, mild bg fruitiness, medium citrus, little bits of wood here and there, dries somewhat, herbal and scratchy notes, too. I like it, gets at tradition in a different way and has a fair bit of complexity. Just very thick and bludgeoning. [2016.08.29: 2.8]

on tap @ North Country / Slippery Rock PA --- Clear dark amber color, off-white head, bands of lace. Taste is malt with light carbonation and hops with no discernible flavor (just bittering). Not a memorable brew, but serviceable.

klaing (282) - Florida, USA - JUN 3, 2016
Cloudy orange with moderate persistent head. Malts quite sweet, biscuity, hops orange and lemon rind with a dry grassy finish. Good take on an English style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

HoppyScallywag (339) - Butler, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 9, 2016
Nice hoppy aroma. A mild malt wraps your mouth and then is calmed by a nice, tingly bitter. The malt still reminds you it's there on the palate. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DavoleBomb (1867) - Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 11, 2016
Poured into a pint glass. 3.5 A: Lightly hazed medium orange color. Two fingers of frothy/creamy beige head. Retention is a touch below average and a finger of lacing is left. 3.5 S: Fruity hops focusing on orange, mango, and papaya. Surprisingly toasty with caramel maltiness. Perhaps a touch of breadiness as well. 3.5 T: The taste is more malt-forward than the nose. Good blend of caramel and toastiness. Mild-moderate bitterness. Fruits mentioned above with the addition of some grapefruit. Pretty good. 3.75 M: Medium body. Good moderate carbonation. Pleasant velvety creaminess to it. 3.5 D: Solid beer. Love the toastiness in this. ★ 663 characters DavoleBomb, Apr 01, 2015

Ratman197 (14686) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - DEC 22, 2015
Can poured a clear orange amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of bread, earthiness, yeast and fruitiness. Palate was light bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of bread, earthiness, light fruitiness and light yeast with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

3.4
Aurelius (5294) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 6, 2015
Incredible pompadour eggshell-colored head, clever and well executed can. Fresh AIPA aroma, you know what that means. Misty honey colored brew. Twisty-pithy grapefruit and kumquat flavors up front. Moderately sweet, true to style, not much more than that. Bitter pithy aftertaste. Drinkable, good, pedestrian. ABC Liquors, Betton.
