bottle, no date

pours a copper color, hazy with floaties. maybe unfiltered after dry hopping? decent bright white head. good lacing. decent hoppy aroma, mostly fruity and citrus. slightly bready malt flavor to balance the hop flavor. medium body and medium to high carbonation.

overall, a decent IPA. good first impression from this brewery.

single, The Beer Shoppe, Ardmore

a: first off - love the label art, twelve ounce bottle into an avery snifter, the pour brings out a light but full coating of off-white head, receding to a smattering on the surface, the beer itself a dark honey amber in color

s: lots of sweet, rich caramel malt and fruity hops on the nose, notes of baked apples, sweet potato, sweet citrus pulp, more fresh caramel, pineapple, and fresh hop resin

m: medium, malty body with a light-medium, delicate carbonation

t: mostly follows suit with the aroma...a tasty, sweet caramel malt body blends with hop juices and flavors of apple, pineapple, and sweet citrus, a resin bitterness begins shortly after the swallow and slowly builds to around moderate strength in the finish

o: as stated on the website the brewer’s intent was to create a balanced, malt fueled ipa without an overwhelmingly bitter aftertaste, and while an atypical ipa, I think it works and would certainly go for another, could have gone higher elsewhere but I'll tack those points on here
