look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

I had this beer on tap at Canal Street Pub in Reading, PA. The color is gorgeous. There was no foam whatsoever and the lacing dissipated quickly which was disappointing but this beer still packs a ton of flavor!

Carbonation was very good.

Smell & taste were fantastic with obvious sweet ripe citrus & apricot immediately noticeable and lingering well on the tip of the tongue after each sip.

Mouthfeel is very good and satisfying with No disturbing flavors popping up.

Overall a very good summer IPA that I could see myself ordering a few at the bar. will try to get a sixtel to have at home. Very Drinkable at 7.00% ABV. Highly recommended!

3.15/5  rDev -21.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Draft offering at pipers pub served in a nonic. The brew appears a burnt copper color with soapy suds of frothy lace coating the glass from the tan cap.

The aroma includes an abundance of caramel malt and herbal hops that almost gets a sort of candy-like set of aromatics about it which is strange yet unique and enjoyable.

The taste is grassy and sweet with toffee and caramel. It is somewhat vegetative with a focus on something more like candy and less like malt. Not a terrible thing, just unexpected.

This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall not bad and worth a try but also not that good to make me want to have it again.

At P.J. Whelihan's served in a pint glass. Beautiful copper color, with a quickly dissipating head. Lacing hung in there. Big hop hit on first taste. Very we'll made American IPA. Gonna have a couple while Im here. Hope to see more of this brewery in the eastern PA area.

Tap

Pours deep amber, white lacing.

Smells of piney hops and light toasty malts.

Tastes of biscuity malts and mild piney hops. Some honey and citrus.

Fuller body with light tingles of carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Nice flavorful ale, very good and something I will probably come back to.
