look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bright copper orange color, high clarity, rising carb visible. Thin halo of lace on the opposite side of the glass, decent head after the initial pour.

Lightly sweet pale malt and citrusy orange peel in the aroma.
Somewhat subdued, but more pungent when swirled.

Taste is similar, sticky sweet pale malt and some citrusy orange hop character, but it's fairly subdued. Light butterscotch and lingering resiny bitterness. Overall it's drinkable, though not knowing how old it is, it's hard to form an objective opinion.

Thanks Howard!

A: The beer is crystal clear amber in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high light beige head that died down, but consistently left a thin head covering the surface and lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of citrusy and floral hops are present in the nose along with hints of caramel malts.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the flavors of underlying caramel malts are a little stronger. The hops contribute a light amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This IPA is easy to drink and the taste has a pretty good balance between the malts and hops.

I was avoiding this one because I thought I had previously tried and not liked it. I must have been mistaking it for some other train themed brew. This one is a nice dry AIPA.

It opens with a nice appearance and aroma. The head is typical as is the color. The aroma is a fresh piney hops smell. The taste sticks in the same vein - crisp and clean, piney hoppy. Easy drinking for the style, but more than a couple would be dangerous and may get old.

The aftertaste is an appropriate hoppy bite. Overall, it is better than I remembered (since I am certain I was mistaking this for something from a brewery in Erie).
