I had this at Erbelli’s Pizzeria in Kalamazoo. It was sold under the label “Iron Maiden IPA” and listed as their house IPA but the server said that it was the Iron Horse IPA from Mt. Pleasant Brewing Company. Figured it was worth a shot and I wasn’t disappointed.

This pours a clear amber gold color with nice tight foam. It has an orange citrus aroma and light pine spice. The flavor has a fun spirited bitterness. It’s sharply bitter upfront with a long lingering bitter finish with orange & pine hop flavor. I get a real pleasant piney resin flavor with a hint of a botanical finish. It’s a surprising enjoyable brew.

This beer was a very fruity IPA, I usually really enjoy IPA's and this one was fairly good. The initial aroma was very fruity and the taste followed that profile as well. I thought it was a pretty good blend of fruit flavors and the natural hops flavoring of a typical IPA.

Pours a rusty orange with a frothy white head that sticks around. Smell is hoppy, subtle malt, and a tart citrus. Taste is subtler then I expected. The hops stay throughout with the malt upfront. A slight bitter at the end, the hops get stronger in the aftertaste. Could pass as a strong pale ale. Good beer, could have stronger hop. Smooth mouthfeel, a redeeming quality.
