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.

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.

A: Poured from a bottle to a pint glass. Had a yellow-orange color and a cloudy texture. There was an inch of foamy, fairly long-lasting head. Pretty good lacing.

S: A good, but not spectacular aroma of citrus, hops, and some malt.

T: Tasted of hops (a moderate amount), a little bit of citrus, and some malt in the finish. The hops content was a slightly harsh, but not too much. A decent, but not mind-blowing flavor.

M: A fair amount of carbonation with a somewhat overly bitter finish. Medium-bodied.

O: A drinkable enough beer, but there are better IPAs out there. Still, worth a try.

A very good IPA with a concealed alchol taste that packs a nice punch. A little less heavy than the IPA I am used to. Smooth tasting without a strong after taste, but not a classic tasting full body IPA which is good because I like variety. A very fine beer worth a try.

Enjoyed from a standard pint glass, on tap at a local eatery. Overall mediocre on taste, nothing to write home about. Nice aromas, beautiful color. Nice lacing on the glass, arrived at the table with almost no head. Not a bad choice but not something I would have again.
