Location/Date:Draft at Fire Station 1, Silver Spring on 2/05/2013.gsmitty80 (2130) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 18, 2012
Appearance: Poured a clear medium orange.
Aroma: Aroma of faint citrus, hop.
Taste:Light bitter, faint citrus. At times didn’t realize it was an IPA.
Summary: Fairly below average IPA. Not much hop presence, and at times didn’t even realize I was drinking an IPA, which is to say not a good thing.
Pretty bad IPA. Very sticky and a mouthfull with a really sweet floral flavor and finish. Not too many bittering hops for me and my taste. rogue77 (2) - - OCT 3, 2012 does not count
aroma is semi-floral, pine, fresh grass, not getting so much citurs flavors (pinnaple, grapefruit, mango); appearance is clear orange amber, small off-white head, mild lacing; bitter/hops taste at front, some caramel and bready malts in background, lingering semi-bitter aftertaste, clean semi-dry finish; mild mouthfeel/medium body; not as hoppy as an ipa, taste more of a decent apa streve (105) - Maryland, USA - JUL 31, 2012
Draft at Brewpub. Pour was a light orange color with a small white head. Aroma was mild, mostly of grapefruit and citrus. Mouth is mild as well. Not much bitterness but its full of grapefruit flavor and a hint of caramel. Medium body. Not much lacing. This, I would consider a Pale Ale, rather than an IPA.
