COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
McGillin’s 1860 IPA, is unfiltered, as it would have been in the 1800s, and is made from a secret recipe with multiple hop varieties including centennial and amarillo. A crisp hop flavor and aroma with a slight maltness and medium body round off this quaffable ale.

Not impresssed considering they talked it up so much. Very basic, no dimensions, nice but not what the raves are claiming at location. Just some decent cask hops, a smooth orange color and easy to drink. Tap

10/29/2014. On tap at the brewery. Light amber with a white head. Caramel aromas with light malt and hops. Seemed very weak and light. Mostly caramel with light hops. Not for me.

ibrubeer (385) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 1, 2014
Draft at McGillan’s. Very authentic as I remember local IPA’s tasting in England. Milder hop aroma and flavor, but very smooth & drinkable. Good.

wheresyourball (572) - El Cajon, California, USA - MAY 7, 2014
Had this on draft in Philadelphia. Pours a yellow/amber color with a big fluffy head; looks like a hef, almost. Hoppy nose with some caramel. Flavor is very bitter with very little malt balance; almost undrinkable. Nose is decent, flavor is pretty bad.

johnnnniee (4312) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 1, 2013
On tap at McGillins this past weekend. Copper color with a smallish head. Malty toffee and caramel aroma with a sweet bready earthy taste. A bit light in the hop dept for an ipa. OK to drink but I wouldn’t grab one again.

3.3
Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2013
Nice semi-sweet malt balance to a slight citrus hop profile that is also earthy. Orange in color with 1-finger white head and a bit of lacing.

reggiedunlop (3725) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2012
Pours a clear gold with a large foamy white head...great retention and lacing. Aroma is a bit buttery but has some nice stonefruits. Flavor has some mild stonefruit and citrus with earthy bitterness. Mouthfeel

3.1
sonnycheeba (5988) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 27, 2012
Tap. Pours clear gold/copper with average, creamy white head; decent retention and spare lacing. Aroma is floral and grassy hops, bread malt, citrus, and faint herbs. Flavor is sweet malt initially the quickly overcome with grassy hops (light bitterness); light fruit esters throughout with a dry, lightly hoppy finish. Light body and low carbonation.

2.8
HeadyDE (843) - Delaware, USA - AUG 19, 2012
Draft offering at mcgillins, dissipating head, not much of anything memorable about this, except blandness, extremely bland, not a real solid ipa offering...
