Had this on 2013-03-13 in Columbia, PA
A - Hazy amber-orange with a 1.5-finger pillowy white head. Looked nice at first but there are some big-time floaties in this brew.
S - Toasted bread with orange marmelade and light floral. Pretty mild.
T - Citric hop forward, orange tea, mild toasted malt, grapefruit flesh and zest. Dries quickly and finishes with some tart orange and lingering bitterness. Tastes good.
M - Light-medium body and medium carbonation. Prickly, crisp, lightly resinous. I could feel a few floaties going past the back of my throat. Other than the particles, I liked the feel.
O - Well, if it weren't for the floaties and the mild aroma, this beer would certainly have scored higher since I liked the flavor. I'm going to try look for another bottle to try; hoping the particles and light aroma were the exception rather than the rule.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: Orangey amber color with about 2 fingers of white head that lingered and heavy lacing on the glass.
Smell: Strong citrus and hops.
Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of bitter hops and pine with sweet citrus.
Overall: Good IPA, I would definitely have this one again.

The Shed Brewery India Pale Ale
12 oz. brown glass bottle, ink-jet coded "032714"... the rest is illegible.
$1.79 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ
Clearly an unfiltered IPA, the body is a cloudy golden-orange beneath a frothy head of rocky, off-white foam. Kudos must be given as the head drops slowly but remains completely intact, leaving walls of lace along the glass in the space it once occupied.
The aroma displays softly sweet and gently caramelish malt backed by delicately, piney, almost minty, citrusy, and floral hops. It's fresh, bright, and enticing.
In the mouth it's medium-bodied, and moderately carbonated, leaving it smooth and supple across the palate.
The flavor delivers a wide maltiness that's delicately sweet, bready/toasty/biscuity, and drizzled with golden caramel. The gently spicy/piney/minty, grassy, and citrusy hops are well integrated, and except for the first few sips where you can easily distinguish the nuances of the malts and the hops readily, it pulls together to become one solid wall of flavor very quickly. The bitterness of an IPA is present, but it's not overtly aggressive; despite the use of citrusy hops, this is more of an English IPA than an American, where the malt is really just as important, and with that said, so is the yeast - there's a remarkably pleasant fruitiness that in combination with the hops delivers notes of juicy apple, soft plum, papaya, mango, and subtle ripe and sweet red berries. The hops rally in the finish, however, combining their raspy flavors and bitterness to drive off any residual sweetness, leaving only dusty dryness behind.
Overall I'm quite impressed. Today's beer drinker (in general) seeks gusto, but I seek refinement. The depth of character found here; and the freshness that it displays are impeccable. The roundness of it running across wide swaths of malt, various hops, and a solid yeast character are rarely found anymore; and in combination with it's spot-on balance of sweet malt and raspy hop flavor and bitterness, it's an exceptionally drinkable English+American hybrid IPA. Brilliant!
