Notes/Commercial Description:
A west coast style IPA, over-the-top hoppy and oh so dry. Hopped with simcoe, columbus and a touch of citra.

Pours a beautiful copper orange color. Off-white head with a little soapy texture. A whiff of this and you'll smell a ton of citrus aroma; grapefruit, tangerine, orange; wonderful smell. The taste is also very citrus oriented. Very well balanced, though; carmel malts round out the complex taste. Just a great IPA. One of my absolute favorites I have had so far. If you are anywhere in the Harrisburg/Central Pennsylvania area, Al's of Hampden / Pizza Boy is a must stop. Glad to support this local brewer.

Great beer for a local brewery. It was a little dry, but I get it as that's what it takes to let those hops shine through. I enjoyed this so much I bought 3 bottles total. I would buy again if I had the opportunity. Nice tropical fruits! Cool graphic on bottle too.

One of my favorite IPA's. Nothing too crazy, but when you live close by and get to try it out of a cask, it is amazing.

Poured from a bomber into a teku glass. Dated 8/2014

Honesty not your typical west coast IPA. Smells of citrusy, sharp, astringency but drinks very easily. Very drinkable at 6.5% too. Great lacing around the glass as I sip and decent head retention. Not the best west coast style IPA I have ever had but I would seek this out again for sure. Drank this at 55 degrees cellar temp. I suggest you do the same!

Cheers!
