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.

A: Pours a medium amber into the glass with a long lasting beige head. The only detractor in appearance is a slight chill haze.

S: CASCADE!!!! Big time cascade aroma followed by the carmel/malty aromas.

T: A sweet maltiness is offset by the bittering and flavoring hops. Nice hoppy aftertaste. The malt does linger but plays second-fiddle to the hops.

M: A nice medium body. Not too thin, lets you know something is there. No carbonation "bite", just well carbonated and balanced.

D: Very!!! If you like the American IPA style, this beer is for you.

Overall, they hit style with this beer. It is a must for fans of IPAs with a lot of cascade flavor. As I said earlier, the only detractor is the slight chill haze. I would and will drink this again.

Tried from a can tonight. Just as good as from the growler. Only difference is no chill haze.
