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

Surprisingly wonderful after-taste. It's got the taste of the promised hoppiness, but it's perfectly balanced with just enough malt flavor. The light malt flavor knocks down the sharpness of the hopps so the hop taste remains without the battery acid mouth-feel of other very hoppy pale ales.

Enjoyed this on tap out a pint glass.

A: Pours a golden thick white head that quickly dissipates.

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.
