Had this on 2011-07-23 in Columbia, PA

A - Hazy amber-orange with a 1-finger off-white head with excellent lacing.

S - Lots of earthy spice, some pine, mild tropical-yeasty-fruity esters and citrus.

T - The earthy spice strongly sits on top of a significant caramel malt backbone. The hops come in as strong floral with a touch of oxidized fruit, mint and candied orange. It takes a little while for the orange zest and grapefruit bitterness to penetrate the malt but it's satisfying when it does. The beer has some residual sweetness that I'd say balances with the lingering bitterness. Call it a tie.

M - Sticky with medium body and light-medium carbonation. Resinous and a little prickly.

O - An enjoyable IPA that leans towards a "spicy pie filling" malt backbone before it gets assertive. My preference runs to a drier, more brightly-citrus brew but there's a lot of flavor here for an IPA.

Notes: I had another glass of this 5 hours after leaving the brewery. This growler was kept cold during this time. There wasn't much difference between this growler and on-tap. The only thing I noticed is I could smell it further away at home because it wasn't competing with the kitchen smells at the brewery.

Was able to partake in Nated0gg's growler from the growling at the moon, thanks for the opportunity.

A- Darkish golden amber with a 1 finger head with modest lacing.

S- Sweet pine resin, candied orange peels, some sweet malt.

T- Mild piney grapefruit with mingled sweetness that lingers.

M- Moderate body almost with a creaminess to it.

D- Slightly sweet for an IPA, but very, very enjoyable.

At the source on a recent trip with the girlfriend. Served out of a pint glass. Reviewed from notes.

Served with .5 finger white foamy head with low retention. Beer is a clear orange peach. Lacing is spotty and patchy with low retention. A bit below par for the style.

Nose is citrus, mango, papaya, and fresh hop bitterness. Very robust fruit bouquet and decently aromatic.

Opens hop bitterness. Citrus, papaya, and mango. An amazing combination of tropical fruit flavors melds perfectly towards the middle. Peach comes in. Some resiny hop bitterness at the end. Finish is a robust malt backbone and aftertaste is a nice citrus hoppiness. A very well crafted east-coast style IPA.

Light to medium bodied with low carbonation. Smooth and warming in the mouth and full and silky going down. Clean finish with a slightly lingering aftertaste. Not as carbonated as most beers I've had this style but the smoothness really works well here.

This beer is an east-coast style IPA taken to the max. Not the most hoppy and not the most balanced. But the fruit aromas and flavors this one boasts are incredible. Definitely worth trying.

A-medium amber color with a decent white head and a little lacing

S-bready malt, citrus, light tropical fruit, slight herbal, pine

T-toasted bread, grapefruit, light tropical fruit, pine, light floral, moderate bitter finish

F-medium body with moderate carbonation, crisp

O-solid IPA, but not what I thought it would be given the reputation

On tap at the brewpub. Orange-grapefruit colour with lace sheets. Wonderful aroma of orange and grapefruit fresh juice. Well malted, understated carbonation. Taste is orange and grapefruit. A long finish. Soft mouthfeel, typically easy to drink Selin Grove.

Big thanks to Mike Thorpe for this.

Growler into my Rochefort glass. A medium copper with a little orange, only a little carbonation...Nice but sweet aroma, pineapple, banana dominate but there is a little caramel and brown sugar...The taste is super malty, caramel, brown sugar, pinepple to start then in the middle there is a big hit of pine which is really nice and breaks up the sweetness. Very similar to a dipa just not enough hops but similar characteristics.

This is a very drinkable ipa, a little short on carbonation, so pretty decent in the growler, I'd love to have this on tap.

Sampled on-tap at Selin's Grove Brewing Company.

A - Pours a semi-clear amber-copper with medium carbonation and a foamy white head.

S - Abundantly hoppy with some citrus and sweet pine notes in the background. Smells very inviting.

T - All the dominant flavors perfectly balance each other - bitterness is met with sweet malt and piney hops by citrus. The end result is a very hoppy, clean beer.

M - Medium body with a bitter finish that leaves you wanting more.

D - BA Deuane put this very well before I took my first sip - "there's nothing spectacular about this IPA...everything works so well together that it makes the perfect balance." This held very true - I couldn't ask for more from an IPA. The alcohol can definitely creep up on you, as it is so drinkable...but other than that, I very much enjoyed this beer.
