At the Porter House in New Hope, PA. Poured amber/copper with two fingers of white, good retention, and great lacing. Modest visible carbonation. Smelled of bitter grassiness and hay; not much fruitiness or maltiness. The taste confirmed the lack of fruit flavor; this IPA was very dry, bitter, and woody, with a super-dry finish. Medium, modestly-carbonated, and easy to drink. Good for sessioning, if you favor the more grassy/herbal variety.
Serving type: on-tap

A - Holly crap this stuff is over carbonated! A medium pour gave me more than two inches of head that seems to fizz out rather quickly with little head. Big clumps of sediment means either its old or just unfiltered. Either way not good so far.
S - Smell is mild not getting much hops or malts. Smell if anything is just of an average English pale ale.
T+M - Man that carbonation makes it hard to drink! My first sip gave me strong unbalanced pure hop bitterness in all it's unforgiving glory. Very little sweet or crystal malts for balanced just bitter and drain cleaner harshness.
Overall it's a real shame since I love their imperial stout but they can't seem to make anything else that impresses me. Pity.
