COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
In honor of our friend and mascot, Wylie the fish, we are hooking you up with an aggressively hopped India Pale, the staple for any fishing trip. This beer is a hop lover’s dream. Andrew Maxwell put over 1.5 decades of recipe development into this India Pale Ale, creating the fourth dimension of flavor. Combining four varieties of hops produces a unique beer that has an aggressive hop flavor, bite and aroma without denying the presence of malt which I.P.A.s often lack.

Pale golden orange pour, thin soapy white head and thin striped lacing ... aroma of grassy, light citrusy hops and light caramel malts .... taste is of grassy, light citrusy and light floral/piney hops, caramel malts .... backbone is malty and of dry bitter hops ..... finish is dry and bitter with a lingering bitter hoppy bite .... british/east coast ipa ... sessionable and ok, but 1.5 decades spent developing this is a bit disappointing

Hoppy aroma. Earthy, thin, with a somewhat trashy finish. The hops are there, but it seems a bit watered down.

12 oz can from Capone’s. Pours clear medium copper with 2-finger off-white head that looks creamy and produces spare lace. The nose is bready caramel malty, with notes of orange marmalade and pine. Tastes piney, resiny, with a pronounced caramel malt fflavor, some bready biscuity notes, resiny hops, and some pineapple, tangerine, and black pepper notes in the finish.

Can. Pours a cloudy amber with thin beige head and some soapy lace. Nose dominated by malt, mostly caramel, with some grass and light citrus. Light body with a very bitter finish. Not for me - malty palate wrecker.

Poured on tap at a bar at Hidden Valley snow tubing. Ok IPA. Too bitter. Too thin. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This poured a lighter orange color with a beige head. Aroma mainly off grassy and lightly citrus hops, with caramel notes too. Flavor was malty and bitter but not with much hop flavor. Not too great.

12 ounce bottle from Guntown. Pours a cloudy orange hue with a medium white head. A decent orange and citrus nose. The flavor is decent; biscuit, lemon, some zest. Lots of crystal. Smooth.

kramer (6578) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 8, 2012
12 oz bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber-copper body with a small fizzy off-white head. The nose is just lightly hoppy with a little crystal malt below. Doesn’t smell especially inviting, as far as an IPA goes, but there’s nothing wrong with it. The flavor is pretty lacking in the hops department, especially for being touted as "aggressively" hopped. There’s a little too much dark crystal malt in here for my tastes, leaving a little too much sweetness lingering on the finish. Not really up my alley as far as the style goes. Medium bodied, a little clingy, moderate fizzy carbonation. Not for me, but I’d like to try it again directly from the source though.
