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.

Classic IPA that lacks the citra hops and other piney or citrus hops I love. Well- crafted though. Great aroma with a standard-at-best palate. Needs fruit or complex palate to break from standard though. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

yinzerbeernut (180) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 28, 2010
Bottle, on pour this is a hazed burnt orange color with a massive off white head that was loose while producing decent lacing. The hoppy aroma is made of bushes and vegetables. The palate has massive notes of bitterness. A solid full finish completes this beer.

superspak (6000) - Waterford, Michigan, USA - JUL 22, 2014
12 ounce can into pint glass, no canning date. Pours slightly hazy bright orange color with a 2 finger dense and rocky off white head with great retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lasts. Spotty foamy lacing clings on the glass, with some moderate streaming carbonation. Aromas of tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, caramel, toast, biscuit, light toffee, and floral/toasted earthiness. Nice aromas with good complexity of citrus/floral hops and balanced sweet malts; with good strength. Taste of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, light pine, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness. Fair amount of pine/grassy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of grapefruit, tangerine, pineapple, lemon zest, orange peel, floral, grass, caramel, toast, biscuit, and floral/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and balance of juicy citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; with a good malt/bitterness balance and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and lightly creamy/sticky mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a nice IPA. Good balance and complexity of citrus/floral hops and moderate malt sweetness; and very smooth to drink. A bit too malty, but otherwise a nicely enjoyable IPA.

zebracakes (1339) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 3, 2007
On tap at the Pour House. I agree with Nate. This is a really good find as far as IPAs go. Hazy amber caramel, off white head. Aroma is tangerine/floral. Flavor is tangerine/floral; bitter and crisp, yet not too peaty.

Naka (719) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 20, 2008
Courtesy of Juart from a growler. Pours a clear amber color with a thick eggshell head and excellent lacing. The nose is a sweet cotton candy with some floral and pine notes, but not a lot of real bitterness. The flavor has a lot of caramel malt and toffee. The hop flavor is piny and spicy. A medium body with some oily texture that leaves a nice bitterness on the tongue.

3.6
Acetobacter (815) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 24, 2010
Enjoyed on tap in an English pint glass. The beer pours a medium amber color, with a moderately sized and fairly dense white head. The nose carries strong hop aromas. Citrus and pine, along with a strong note of Simcoe. Excellent. The palate nails the profile of a well-made example of the style. Moderate to strong bitterness up front, followed by some flavorsome resiny notes of pine and cattyness, a slight malt sweetness, before ending with a dry and lingering bitter finish. Overall, very well-made and pleasantly drinkable.

LilBeerDoctor (4193) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 6, 2011
On tap at the brewpub. Pours a cloudy amber orange with a thick white head. Aroma of bready malt and floral hops. Flavor features more hoppy bitterness and bready malts. Good IPA, although it’s more like a pale ale. 7/4/7/4/14 (3.6/5)

3.6
Palidor19 (3193) - Brandon, Florida, USA - APR 17, 2015
This is a great session IPA, brings a nice malt flavor with a touch caramel and a bitter hops that is not overpowering nor too potent, for a casual drinker ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

3.5
lithy (2996) - Capital of Appalachia, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 28, 2011
Caramel colored with an off white cover. Aroma is some toasted malt, herbal hops. Taste is pretty much the same, nothing too mind-blowing but it was solid enough that I had a second.

3.5
Tmoney99 (14952) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 19, 2014
Can. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate citrus and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.
