Iron Hill Slower Lower
Draft sampled at GABF 2016 with Paul, Andrew and Ellen. Pours a light amber body with white lacing. Nose is malt and perfume. Mouthfeel is medium bodied with ntoes of bitter citrus fruits, perfume-y grapefruit and resin. Noticeable malt character for an IPA - a bit too much for my personal preference.

Iron Hill Charlie Pumpkin Brown
Arrived at the table a clear deep orange with a very thin white head that lasted through the first sip and left scant lace. Very pleasant aroma of pumpkin, malt and the requisite pumpkin pie spices. The flavor is exactly the same as the aroma. Very mild bitterness at the finish and somewhat smooth on the palate. Medium bodied.

Iron Hill Russian Imperial Stout
Pours pitch black and nearly opaque with only faint mahogany edges and a two finger frothy beige head that slowly settles into a thick, lasting ring. Very good retention for the style and ABV taking a while to settle and leaving streaks of soapy lacing in its path. Deeply roasted robust dark malt aroma with hints of gourmet coffee bean, burnt sugar, toast and dark chocolate countered by lighter malt sweetness. Hints of caramel, toffee, silky dessert-like chocolate, licorice and dark fruit. Chewy and viscous full with robust dark malt flavor that’s perfectly balanced by sweeter dark malt notes. Very nice roast with tasting burnt or acrid. Gourmet coffee bean flavor along with, burnt toast bittersweet dark chocolate, oatmeal and liquid smoke. This is countered by slight lactic creaminess, sweet chocolate, licorice and hazelnut. Very smooth and easy drinking considering the complexity and high ABV. One of Iron Hill’s best beers.

Iron Hill Mo-Rye-Ah IPA
My favorite from a recent visit. Named for the assistant brewer, Moriah. Very nice amber color with a white head. Sweet malt in the aroma with some spice and citrus. The flavor is very nice with the malt up front and the hops coming in the back. Very smooth a silky from the rye. Nice dry finish. Well done.

Iron Hill Mo-Rye-Ah IPA
Tap at Voorhees, namesake for the new brewer! Tawny clear amber-brown with lacing beige head. Watery light body with interesting candy-fruity new hops, no rye ‘spice’ but that dull, bitter rye gummy character is featured very well on the low end. Juicy and satisfying with some interesting toffee and honey-treacle notes. Malty medium body, clear, crisp and a touch minerally. Medium bitterness, low sweetness persists. The best of the flight - worth the look!

Iron Hill Revolution Ale
Tap at Voorhees. Clear tawny amber. A dark red, light chestnut, a short beige head that laces. Very nutty nose carries through into the body, light wood, medium-strong sweetness and a little bitter. Malty medium-full body minerally and swishable, touch soapy, candyish fruit. Like the individual elements, don’t like how they clash with each other.

Iron Hill Russian Imperial Stout
Cocoa in the aroma, a bit of alcohol venting. Near black color, opaque, large tan-colored head. Roasted malt, dark chocolate, coffee; deep, rich maltiness, tobacco, fine alcohol syrup in the finish with a good dose of resin/pine hops and moderate bitterness. Medium full, smooth and slick texture. Very good hoppy Imperial Stout. Wish there was more to the aroma though.
