Had on-tap at Double Wide Grille

A - Gold orange with one finger of foamy white head, thick rings of lacing. Looks awesome
S - Lush hops, big orange papaya, grapefruit, lemon candy, a little sweet malt and pine.
T - Pine, orange juice, mango, grapefruit, lemon, sweet caramel malt, just awesome
M - Clean and bright, a little chew to it.
O - Legit IPA, bursting with lots of fruit flavor and aroma.

3.15/5  rDev -21.3%
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.
