16 ounce can poured into a 22 ounce tulip.

A--Dark golden look. Clear, with a decent head that fades quickly and leaves a tiny bit of lacing.
S--Hoppy, citrus with a bit of a piney scent. Quite nice, but also very much in line with what an IPA should be.
T--Excellent balance between the expected hoppiness of an IPA and the too often forgotten maltiness. Nice touch of citrus.
M--Tart and still a little creamy.Not especially carbonated. Quenching.
O--Excellent. A fine example of an American IPA. They come in 16 ounce cans at 7.5%, so watch what you're doing.

bought two cases of the pint cans directly from the Old Forge Brewing Co". The cases were actually canned that very morning; which equals a very fresh IPA. We took a case to the OBX, refrigerated them for two days before we opened the first one, we all enjoyed a few pints.
This beer is a good, clean IPA with a traditional nose and palate. Not too much

16oz can into tulip.

A - Clear amber with a huge white head.

S - A blast of pine, citrus, and grapefruit hops. Hints of sweet caramel malt.

T - Citrus and grapefruit supported by a toasted caramel malt backbone. Finishes with a light earthy piney bitterness and lingering sweet graininess.

M - Creamy and smooth, medium bodied. Crisp mild carbonation, slightly dry finish.

O - This is a great IPA. Balanced and flavorful, definitely on the sweeter side, but the hop profile is pretty solid. Love the 16oz can.

Like the pint can. Wish more brewers would offer this. ('Tall boys' are old school). Refreshing flavor that is unquestionably within the bounds of a classic
IPA brew. In an age when many brewers seem preoccupied with reinterpreting IPAs with heavy coffee and chocolate flavors I really appreciated this ale as an original yet authentic IPA..

Served: On-tap in a frosty-chilled goblet.

Golden caramel in color - slightly cloudy.

Decent greeting of hop aroma, somewhat piney.

Solidly hoppy IPA, but not as bitter as I expected. Crisp with a flavor that doesn't especially linger. Good choice for a not-wussy IPA. Would certainly have again, but didn't rock my hop world. :)

Serving type: on-tap

I had picked this up on a recent visit to The Foodery (Northern Liberties) and put it aside while emptying bottles that had built up, but it is time to get back to The CANQuest (TM).

From the CAN: "We strive to honor personal craftsmanship. Our handcrafted beer is made in small batches to ensure quality and peak freshness. Brewed and CANned by Old Forge Brewing Company, Danville, PA."; "Overbite India Pale Ale is an Ameri[CAN] IPA with bug malt character giving perfect balance to the abundance of Pacific Northwest hops."; "Forging Better Beer".

The Crack was music to my ears and the inverted Glug was a sight to behold. I created a finger of thick, tawny head with good retention. Color was a deep coppery-amber with NE-quality clarity. Nose was minty, like winter in an evergreen forest. Listen, do you hear it?!? It's a screeching goldang monkey and it's on my back! I am not a hophead, I am a hop addict and beers like this only feed my addiction. Mouthfeel was medium but the searing bite of the hops was working to scrub away all of the weak and dead or dying taste buds on my tongue so that I could more thoroughly enjoy the taste. My heart was thumping like it wanted to burst from my chest and I covered my ears to try and drown out the monkey's howling. It began to worm its way into my tongue like a drop of hydrofluoric acid. I was reaching for a pair of pliers with which to extract my burning tongue from my head when suddenly a rush of euphoria hit me like an oncoming train and I fell over backwards from my chair. I felt the monkey crush underneath my weight and I took a deep breath. It was like a menthol inhaler. What malt?!? This was hops, baby! The finish was cool and minty and I decided to forgo mouthwash this evening. Let's do this again real soon.

I almost forgot to mention - another word for an overbite is "a malocclusion" and there was nothing mal- about this beer.
