An American IPA with big malt character giving perfect balance to the abundance of Pacific Northwest hops. Hopheads won't be disappointed. This beer was released for our 1st Anniversary celebration at the pub, then quickly became a year round favorite (cans and draft) 7.5% alc by vol. and ~75 IBU's

Aroma is fantastic. I'm pleasently surprized at the offerings so far from Old Forge although this is only my second from them. But man what a second.
This brew has a big hop bouquet of citrus and pine with some easy malts backing up.
The appearance though is a bit wanting. A small head. The head fast receeded to a simple collar, though that collar lasted a long while. The pure amber color is crystal clear.
Taste is bold and assertive as like most of the well known WCIPA'a. hops have a floral taste. Malts have a bready doughy taste towards the end making for me a well balanced taste. Smooth drinking clean with a bitter aftertaste.
Ranks right there with sculpin and furious though needs alittle help in rentention.
Posted here first I think Old Forge is going to be a PA powerhouse. (791 characters)

Old Forge Overbite IPA
16 oz. can, no apparent freshness dating
$2.69 @ Beer Heaven, Philadelphia, PA

Appearance: Clear deep amber body with a bit of an orange-ish cast. Creamy off-white head. Head retention and lacing are good.

Aroma: Hoppy! Citrus (grapefruit, tangerine) and light pine. Somewhat floral as well.

Taste: As expected, hoppy but balanced by a nice, golden-caramel malt base. Solidly bitter. Dry finish with fading, grassy hops.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Gently crisp carbonation.

Overall: A pretty impressive IPA. It's not so much what it is, as what it isn't. It isn't overdone with hops, and the malt base is kept straight-forward. Nicely balanced and well-rounded. (692 characters)

Poured out of can into snifter. I knew nothing of this brewey beforehand. No date on can, bummer. I was a littler leary of buying an IPA w/o a date. I got lucky! It did not taste old at all - quite fresh. Great hop aroma (citrus and mostly pine). Flavor is that of other fresh IPAs. Firm bitterness and great hop flavor. Mouthfeel is perfect, not too thin and not too heavy. I'm drinking this as my first beer of the day and I am pleasantly surpised. Go out and try some! (471 characters)

A big thanks goes out to woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a brown/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of hops, some citrus. Taste is well balanced, hops, malts, some citrus, easy drinking. Feels full bodied in the mouth and overall is a quality beer. (284 characters)
