3.6/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Barely a finger’s worth of wispy white foam, with lots of larger bubbles it dissolves rapidly to a thin surface coating, the lacing fares a little better with long, sticky streaks all along the glass sides. The liquid is shiny and fully transparent, an attenuated orange to then yellow color, only a few random bubbles visible. Very floral nose, violets and lilacs, orange blossom, gentle apricot to peach, apple fruit notes, segues to cut grass, salt, pepper and hard bread crust, there’s some funk in the hops yet it also has a cleansing purity to it, not much to be found by way of really sweet maltiness. Full-bodied, thick enough to be sluggish, not a lot of carbonation. The tangerine, orange to white grapefruit citrus a larger factor here, just outpoints the metallic earthy and herbaceous qualities, which themselves are formidable. The fruit lacks sweetness but there’s bite in the pineapple, papaya, nectarine, peach flavors. More grainy than processed bread, touch of peppercorns and pine cones. By the end unwinds enough that the floral dimension gets assertive. If you like your IPA’s on the bitter side while still mostly balanced, this should be in your wheelhouse. Wisely keeps it simple when it could get overcomplicated.

Neshaminy Creek County Line IPA
12 oz. can
$1.99 @ Total Wine & More, Cherry Hill, NJ

Appearance: Very, very hazy orange amber body beneath a creamy head of off-white that drops steadily to a thin but full surface covering, leaving behind some fairly impressive lace.

Aroma: Citrus and bready malt combine with some resin and pine. I'm not sure what it is that makes it this way, but it comes off almost like an old grapefruit.

Flavor: Far more aggressive than the aroma suggests. Nicely balanced blend of malt and hop flavors rather than just hops dancing across a thin layer of biscuit. Apricot comes into the hop mix, and pine seems to dominate the citrus (at least to start with). There's also a tropical fruit thing happening (pineapple, papaya, soft mango) which takes it away from your usual "citrus-pine" IPA profile. Solidly bitter. Dry finish as might be expected, and a little harsh in fact, with some resinous hop character lingering a little too strong for a little too long.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate carbonation that leaves it gently crisp and then smooth across the palate.

Overall: The 5 hops chosen for this IPA work well together, but at the same time they seem a bit muddled. There's a little bit of everything everywhere, but not enough of just one or two things to give it a focal point. At least it's unique.

Quite frankly one of the worst beers I've ever had the misfortune of drinking. It looked nice after the pour and went downhill immediately after that. Tasted awful, just flat out awful, to the point that it almost hurt my tongue and throat to drink it.
