3.78/5  rDev +5%

12 oz bottle was poured into a tuliped glass

Appearance: Beer pours a one finger head that is reducing and leaving some lacing on the glass. A nice burnt orange and red color and very foggy/hazy. Saw some particles floating around in the beer from the botton of the bottle to the glass. Really hope those floaties were part of the package and not a dissapointment of things to come. Finally can see carbonation in the glass after things have settled. I still see floaties in the beer, but still drinking it.

Smell: Very clean orange/tangerine/grapefruit right up front. Some breadiness and pine are right behind

Taste: Same as above. Bready yeast and pine are more prevalent. Bitterness is really high. Oh,oh there are the booze. Will have to say that the booze is hidden nicely and not upfront right at ya.

Mouthfeel: Full bodied, smooth, slightly chewy, boozy, medium carbonation.

Overall: This was a nice little treat from our trip to an from Pittsburgh. Happy that I picked up a bottle and hopefully someday will have more from this Tri State brewery. Hopefully they will start to distribute to the eastern side of the state. Don't see myself going to the Pittsburgh area too often in the future.

I will have to say that I don't mind the floaties, but others might. They ahould let people know that it is bottle coniditioned or slightly unfiltered. Still a good beer and it didn't ruin my review. Thanks boys.

My favorite during a session at the newest Sharp Edge location, poured in their new smaller pour high octane chalices. A slightly hazed golden orange bright bodied, with a light white head forms even lace as it dwindles. Aroma has fruity pineapple/citrus notes actually intense citric hops with mild pine/mint going on. A hint of bready yeast this has to be a Belgian style IPA a mix of a triple/IPA aka TriPA also brewed in a tristate region of OH/WV/PA. Flavor is super aggressive with hop flavor and a decent bitterness. Fruity citric hops some grapefruit with tropical pineapple juicy mango fruit tones and hint of pine harshness. Complex warming alcohol with a spicy yeast note as well. Mouthfeel is resinous with hop oils big bold American style BIPA. Carbonation is lively carries the beer all the way through, very enjoyable will hae to revisit this brew to see if it's actually as good as I thought it was or if the other beers I had that day were actually that lackluster.

- best by july 14. lot #e57. hopped 7x, 5 different varieties.

A: Dirty orange, dense clarity, thin beige head is slight on hold, weak on lacing. Tingy beige micro-effervesce creeps up along the glass walls.

S: Hints of pineapple-orange, fresh orange peel, some grassiness.

T: Piney-dry pineapple, grassy overtures, spicy orange citric bite. Hints of pear-mango, creamy grassy citrus malt, nice tropical grassiness with pronounced sting of hops on the finish.

M: Creamy maltiness, grassy citric sting of hops with a dry flowery hop coating on the tongue.

O: Overall the hops live up to thier end of the deal. The malt base is creamy, full, nice mixture of hop variety, tropical grassy-pine, with nice varying degrees of fresh and dry nature. The alcohol is warm and comforting, a nice fall winter taking.

On draft at the Blue Dog in Lansdale, PA. Poured into a 13oz tulip.

Pours a ruby brown with orange highlights. A eggshell white head is present right after the pour but dissipates very quickly.

The nose has tons of citrus hops with and obvious strong, malt backbone. Reminds me of a typical East Coast IPA. Just what I was looking for.

The taste is fairly one-noted. Citrus hops with the maltiness to back it up. 9% is fairly well hidden. Pretty good.

Overall, just what I was expecting in an east coast ipa. Enjoyable and I'd order it again.

3.05/5  rDev -15.3%

A 12 oz bottle from the Brass Rail.

A: The double IPA is a golden brown, amber. Transparent, the ale has a glow near the base. A white head, over a finger and a half on first pour, laces in a few spots.

S: Hoppy with a syrupy thickness, the grapefruit has fallen off a bit. Caramel is a saving grace, adding a malt backbone that makes up for the hop losses.

T: The hops may be a little softer but the ale hasn't lost its kick. Boozy heat, mixed with caramel and toffee, leaps out at me immediately. Pepper is in the mix but the hops have lost any distinctiveness that may have one existed. The hoppiness improves modestly, the citrus stand out with more elan. However, the heat of the ale keeps getting in the way, a pow of strength that covers up quite a bit.

M: Average. Maybe too old or maybe too muddled, the hoppiness is enveloped by the alcohol.

Hazy orange body with a thick off-white head that settles to a thin foam cap. Lacing on glass, alcohol legs, and nice amount of head retention after a few swirls of the glass.

Lots of fruit...peach, apricot, mango and mild tropical fruit. The fruit aromas blend in with a light caramel/toffee sweet malt and bready scent. Mild peppery notes from the yeast as well. Lots for the nose to appreciate!

Apricot and peach with a touch of pine at the start which then moves along in the middle with some creaminess and sweet malt flavors. Bitterness comes in real quick and fades very fast. Carbonation is just right here. A bit more of a hop punch up front would make this a stellar A/A+ DIPA. The middle to the finish is balanced so well. The mouthfeel definitely keeps you wanting to come back for more.

Overall TRI-PA is a smooth and very drinkable beer at 9%. This beer is so drinkable I could easily put down a few of these and not think twice about it. TRI-PA is a great east coast IPA that can be loved by any west coast hop-head.
