COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our interpretation of an "American India Pale Ale". We used a blend of domestic and European malts to create the base to this very hoppy beer- these malts give the beer its beautiful copper color. The hops are all American, as is the yeast- we juiced up the alcohol to a healthy 6.6%, so enjoy this one in moderation. The hops will come at you immediately through the nose and follow through the flavor of the beer; while the malt will play a secondary role. Brewed with Pale, Crystal and Toasted malts. Hopped with Columbus, Magnum, & Cascade.

Beautiful orange color, tons of bubbles, big head. Nose is malty, with a chlorine aroma. Pleasant and a little flowery. Taste is middling: musty ginger, the hop is a bittering sort. Its not unpleasant, but its not "good" either. The feel is prickly and very carbonated. Its not a bad beer, and better than macrocrap, but its really below average.

vtafro (6872) - Wayne, New Jersey, USA - JAN 28, 2013
Bottle. Amber range pour with tan head. Aroma is of herbal to almost skunk like notes, toasted and other bready malts. Herbal, earthy and grassy flavors were once more prominent, hops have become more of an afterthought and malts almost take over.

boxofrane (2553) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 27, 2012

Sample at the brewery - Smelled a ton better than it tasted. Nose was bunches of hops, but they didnt make it to the palate.

2010 Autumn Festival of Ales - Standard looking pour with avg. head. Wow, lots of hops in aroma. Some malt backbone to this, but lots of hops in the flavor with a bitter ending.

By far the best War Horse has to offer. Nice and thick with a long head, this IPA does not disappoint. While certainly not the most hoppy, it has a great smoky taste and is loaded with Cascade hops.
