Believe the ABV is 6.5%. Tapped 11/7 and filled that day at King of Prussia Rock Bottom.
A: Pours copper cover...light to medium with about a finger's worth of head.
S: Mostly pine-smelling, neither overwhelming nor underwhelming. Not sure if that's a result of the newness or not.
T: Hits right on for the style--about the same as your local larger microbrewery's IPA (I'm looking at you Harpoon and Hop Devil).
M: Bit a of a sour aftertaste but not overpowering in any way.
O: Purchased since the Iggles are on MNF ($6 fills on Monday nights at Rock Bottom). Would probably buy again though more likely to mix things up the next time I'm there.
As a side note, the KoP Rock Bottom has been out of new growlers for some time. Hope that's not a sign of trouble.

Long lasting head that leaves a rich blanket of lace on the glass. Clear with a bright copper color.
Strong caramel aroma reminiscent of British IPAs but the hop aroma leans toward America.
The malt is more subdued in the flavor profile. The hop is more biting and peppery than the smell suggests. The aftertaste does bring back the English malt with plenty of caramel and deeply toasted grain. Unlike most of the offerings, this one has a nice balance between the bubbles and body.
Serving type: on-tap

Ordered a sample of all their on tap beers. Of the 8 I received this was one of them.
A - Very clear amber brown so filtered with a 1/2 inch of head. Most of these beers seem to be force carbonated giving it a good amount of foam.
S - Has a decent hop smell nothing over the top or memorable. Slightly sweet smell but not overall malty.
T - I thought it was good it had a memorable hop bite nothing over the top or tongue lashing. Trouble is it was just slightly average.
M - It was smooth light to medium at best. A great IPA very drinkable.
Overall I rate this above average its not to be expected a hop bomb and I have had many unbalanced IPA's. Unfortunately I found their red ale a bit tastier.
