First had: on tap at Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA

Poured a slightly hazed golden-yellow with a foamy white head that receded to a fine layer of bubbles. Mainly citrus hops on the nose with floral notes and a touch of malt coming through. Hops and more hops in the taste, pretty bitter, some citrus and pine notes, and some toasted malts just making an appearance in the background. Light-medium mouthfeel, and pretty drinkable, though a bit on the harsh side sometimes, so I usually don't feel like having more than a mug.

On cask, via hand pump @ the King of Prussia Rock Bottom on 7/24/10. Served in an oversized mug.

Pours a clear copper, topped with a little over a finger of frothy bright-white head. Retention here is very good, staying near a finger the whole way through and slathering the sides of the mug with a cascade of lacing that slowly drips down the sides. The aroma is hop forward up front, being green, earthy, and herbal, with some pine poking through and some tropical fruit tones mixing well with the sweetness of the malts. This took a bit long to finally open up but once it did, this was pretty solid.

The taste is green with grapefruit flavor and earthy bitterness, while some pine resin adds a certain degree of stickiness to this. The hops are well balanced here by a sweet backbone of bread and caramel character from the malts, nicely cutting the bitterness, and leaving just some light drying grit and residual juicy fruit notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a great feeling smoothness to the carbonation that keeps this flowing just effortlessly across the palate, aided by an almost non-existent ABV.

I think that I often take this for granted since it's always on tap, but man, I forgot just how solid of an IPA this is. Full flavored hop goodness here, with a ridiculously drinkable body (especially on cask). IMHO one of the best IPAs in the Philly burbs here.

First, I have to say I'm a little biased toward this beer. I drink IPAs almost exclusively and am a Rock Bottom regular. This is one of my favorites of all time, it stands up there with any of the more available IPAs, like Hop Devil or Green Flash. The other brewpubs in the area, like Sly Fox and Iron Hill, can't even come close with their standard IPAs.

Golden with an amber tint. Bitter hoppiness with some citrus. Not very malty. The bitterness stays on your palate. Nice head with great legs. Has been kicked up to 6.3% abv with the latest batches. If you enjoy a good IPA, you'll love this, it never gets old.

On-tap at the brewpub in standard tumbler.
Real tasty brew here. Very hoppy in smell and taste with loads of citrus coming through. Slighty cloudy with about 1/4 inch of head with a little bit of lacing. Not too bitter and light to medium in body. Very enjoyable beer. The second one goes down even easier. A good all around american IPA.

Poured into a standard pint glass from a growler fresh from the restaurant.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with minimal head.

Smell: Floral hops, citrus, nice smell!

Taste: Grapefruit, piney and a nice bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, refreshing and crisp.

Drinkability: One of my favor IPAs. I'm lucky to live so close to Rock Bottom and can get a growler for $6 anytime I want.

I had sampler of this in a cask and a regular draft. I thought the cask was better so I got a pint.

Pours a clear golden with a beautiful heading that sticks to the last sip. Left some great leggage throughout as well.

Smell was all hop. Not to much of a malt crispness aroma which I expected but did peak it's head through.

Taste was good. The hoppiness is the dominant factor here. Malts are somewhat of an afterthought.( Not knocking this beer but just expected more body to this). Slight zestiness.

Mouth is crisp and hoppy.Light to medium bodied, Kind of watery and finishes smooth.

Drink is good. A very easy going IPA and can be enjoyed at any time.

Pours a nice amber/orange color with decent slightly off white head. Good lacing. Smell is of citrusy and piney hops blended with somewhat strong carmel malts. Taste is of carmel malts with a bitter sting of piney hops with a faint floral hop presence as well. Medium bodied, not as smooth and creamy as the cask serving would have dictated. Good IPA leaning more towards the english style of IPA in my opinion.

Fantastic beer. Especially noting the hop flavor which is almost a double IPA in my opinion has a solid color with a reliable aroma. A definite contender with the Green Flash IPA. After attending the GABF in 2009 and having sampled many, I can say Brian has done a great job with his Prussia IPA! I would highly recommend it to any IPA fan!

Had this on tap tonight at Rock Bottom in King Of Prussia.
$2.00 thursdays!

Poured a golden orange color with about a fingers worth of soapy white head. A decent amount of lacing hung around for most of the pint.

Smell was light. A touch of citrus zest and a bit of carmel sweetness.

Taste like the smell was light. A touch of citrus and floral but mostly dominated by the malts. A bit bitter on the finish.

Watery and light on the mouthfeel. Smooth and easy to drink.

Overall this is a below average IPA. For $2.00 a pint it does the job but its noting to write home about.
