An "English" style IPA per bottle label.My first Railhouse beer to date.Pours into a standard pint glass a hazed burnt orange with almost a full finger of quick to fade white lace,alot of chunkines and floaties to be had.Biscuit malts and faint herbal hops in the nose,not much citric hop presence really malt is the main player here for me.Caramel biscuit maltiness stands out on the palate with leafy hops playing a supporting role in the finish...much like an English IPA,not overly sweet with just enough crispness in the finish.This isn't a bad beer just miscategorized maybe even by the brewery,to me it's an English pale or close to ESB range,the alcohol is well hidden and I could drink alot of these.

Had to dump it. Taste was bland. Feel was flat. Probably a bad batch. No freshness date, so not sure how old it was. Have had other Railhouse beers and liked them, so I will be trying this again to see if I had bad luck with this one.

Not your typical "west coast" style IPA that is more hops than flavor. This one combines hops with malts and is very smooth. It pours nice and has become my go-to IPA for drinkability. Plus, what's not to love about what FCA stands for???? F*** Corporate America....kind of a hippy concept, but very applicable in the micro-brew world. Drink on and on!

Poured on-tap at the brewery and served in a shaker pint, the beer is a slightly hazed, copper-bronze coloring with a frothy, filmy, clingy, white head. Nose of citrus forward, with key lime and tangerine, subtle caramel backbone, and cut grass. Flavors are fruity forward, with tropical fruits joining the citrus fray. A smooth, sweet backbone, and subtle tangy and resinous hops, too. Well balanced, smooth and light in mouth, with a building resinous bitterness into the aftertaste. Smooth, slightly dry finish. Great beer.
