2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Way too hoppy, even for an IPA. Almost gut wrenchingly so. Would not get this one again.
Pours a translucent golden amber with a medium bubbly off white head. Aroma of grapefruit, pine, toasted malt and light caramel. Aggressively bitter with a lot of pine and grapefruit, toasted malt and hints of caramel. Dry and as I mentioned earlier the bitterness is very aggressive. Kind of reminds me of Victory HopDevil. jrodooo5 (1749) - DOVER, Delaware, USA - FEB 28, 2015
Incredibly light for an ipa & certainly smooth. Not all that flavorful but highly drinkable. Different & not sure standard ipa but not bad at all overall! joeyplush (648) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 11, 2010
I had the Cask Conditioned offering at the brewpub in Delaware. Very tasty, my kind of IPA. Very light and floral with a bittersweet finish. Clear copper color with a white, somewhat pillowy head. A very solid beer, and like the Cask Conditioned aspect very much. ROGUE (2216) - Lewes, Delaware, USA - DEC 24, 2008
On tap at brewpub. Poured a deep golden orange with small head and light lacing. A large hop aroma. Tastes of bitter hops and a hint of grapefruit. Evenly balanced good drinker.

Beer was rusty orange, with smallish head and a bit of lacing. The aroma and flavor was predominantly grapefruit hops. A bit more hoppy than the regular IPA, but not something I’d trump up as "West Coast" style...the hops weren’t all that aggressive. It was tasty, but reminded me more of a standard pale ale than something really bold. GMCC2181 (1617) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 20, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2011 Draft: A light golden orange color, one finger head. Aroma is very hoppy. Flavor has a nice bitterness to it. Pine needles and orange...Medium/light texture. Over all a solid brew. I would get again, enjoyable. ****Update****On tap again/Cask at stewarts. Pretty much think the same thing as before, a well balanced ipa, not over the top or under hopped.

Draft pint shared with my wife at the brewpub. Hazy metallic orange with a sheen. Big mushy hoppy aroma that beckons met to dive in head first. But the flavor lacks the follow-on punch that I’d expected. Still a pleasantly balanced lightly hopped pale ale in the American tradition. (#3180, 11/8/2007)
