Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
The first of the brews from Pittsburgh’s newest and MICRO-est microbrewery to hit the streets. Truly, a hopped-up American IPA with loads of Centennial and Cascade hops, and just barely enough malt backbone to balance it out. Our flagship brew

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

On-tap @ Roland's in the strip district.

Hazy amber/orangish color with off white head. Leaves some nice foamy lacing along the sides of the glass.

Not a huge aroma here, just faint citrusy hops comes through.

The very first flavor is a bitter hop bite followed with a tasty citrus/grapefruit flavor. The whole hop experience is underlined with just a slight malt backbone to balance it out a little.

Mouthfeel is what you expect from an ipa, light and bubbly.

This brew is extremely easy to drink because the overall flavor is very mellow, no very strong bitterness. The main flavor characteristic is citrus, and even that is not extremely potent.

Serving type: on-tap

Enjoyed this on tap out a pint glass.

S: Mild hop and malt aroma.

T: Similar to the smell there is a good balance between bitter hops and sweet malt.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation

O: Decent IPA – nothing special.
