Thanks to ClockworkOrange for gifting me with a pint can of this. Poured into a standard pint, the brew appears a clear copper color with a fluffy tan cap. Some streaming bubbles support the cap which lasts with solid retaining powers and produces a webby pattern of lace on the glass.

The aroma is citrus and rindy with a fruit inclusion and floral hop aspects. A little herbal and almost cheesy with a bit solvent alcohol and toasty to bready grain keeps things in balance.

The taste is herbal almost minorly medicinal with some solvent alcohol. Fruity rinds and a touch of floral to perfune-like character. It is modest with its bitterness with a faint toasty to bready grain character leading a base for the hops to play off.

This is a medium boded brew with a modest level of carbonation. It is overall pretty decent and the price is right to pick this up. Oversll this is no revolution in a can but it is a well made, affordable local offering that I would have again. Thanks for sharing Jason.

$2.25 tall boy can from Abe's.

Crystal clear copper, topped by two level fingers of slightly off-white micro bubbles. Good lacing.

Grapefruit aroma with a touch of orange and peach.

Big extra sweet malt foundation. An orchard of juicy fruit. Bitter finish, not a bite, but a slow lingering that outlasts everything else.

Satisfactory mouthfeel with a bit of prickliness.

A satisfying, solid IPA.

16oz can poured into a tulip pint glass.

Appearance
Crystal clean golden orange with 2+ fingers worth of white head that dissipates slowly. Moderate carbonation.

Nose
Papaya, orange citrus, lemon, pine, caramel and candy sugar.

Taste
Sugar coated orange slices, papaya and drops of pineapple juice. Caramel candies, candy sugars and suggestions of toffee. Finishes with grapefruit zest, lemon zest and onion. Residual sugars and resinous pine linger.

Mouthfeel
Medium-full bodied, crisp and dry.

Overall
For being big on the malts, this IPA still has some seriously bitter bite. A good American IPA, but perhaps a little bit too sugary and I caught some onion flavors toward the finish.

First time try for this Northeast Pa. brewery. Drank from 16oz can poured into appropriate glass. Very pleasantly surprised. Great Taste. Grapefruit notes with a touch of blood orange at the end. The hop presence is definetly there, but still maintains a nice balance. Very Fresh. Very reasonably priced with 16oz can a plus.

This beer poured out as a nice burnt orange color with a solid looking white head on top. The retention and lacing as strong on this one. The smell of the beer is fresh and hoppy smelling. There are some subtle malt aromas but not much. The taste is nicely balanced with citrusy pine hops and a sweetness from the malt. The mouthfeel is smooth, gently carbonated and very drinkable. Overall it's a pretty solid IPA, can't find much to dislike about this one.

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!

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.
