Had never heard of this brewery before tonight. On tap at TJ's Restaurant in Paoli, PA.
Poured cloudy for an IPA…which I really like! The malt and bitterness were very well balanced. Aroma was good but not that pronounced.
The most unusual and interesting thing about this beer was the flavor. Started like a traditional IPA but ended with a subtle sweetness that lingered for a long time on the pallet.
We need more beers like this. I would almost describe it as a hybrid beer between an IPA and a Double MaiBock.
Bottom line this beer tasted extremely fresh and flavorful. I will be back to TJ’s tomorrow for another!

Makes me want to drive across the county line to get some more. This is a very underrated IPA on Beer advocate. It tastes great out of a can or bottle. Have not had it on tap yet. Very refreshing with just the right amount of hops and citrus. Nice floral aroma and crisp finish.

This is one of the best 12 oz IPAs in a can you can find on many NJ shelves these days. Met one of the founders at Cloverleaf Pub in Caldwell NJ the other day and told him to keep up the good work. Dales Pale Ale used to be my go to (and I still love their Deviant), but this County Line IPA is legitimate.

A: amber beer, just about clear, off-white head as-big-as-ya-want-it

S: wet orange citrus and bright green flowers

T: sweet pine and juicy orange, well-rounded hop bitterness, understated malts and crisp, tight hops

M: soft, smooth and creamy, with a bit of carbonation's fuzz; fuller and richer than most IPAs, particularly for the low abv

O: I was braced for an underrated beer and it is - for an IPA, one of my very favorites - reminds me of some of the big-name, higher abv DIPAs out there in terms of flavor and feel; great nose; delicious from first crack of the can to last outta the glass. Must try.

Unbalanced in a good way for us hop heads, - just right body for 6.6 ABV, not sticky, great hop kick start to finish, lingers. West coast if you had to describe the hop assault, but leans east coast pine on the tongue.

For those of you who give a ratsass, it looks and smells good. Also had it in cans - great!

Keep em coming NCBC

County Line IPA pours a very cloudy, dull, golden orange color with a large head and good retention with average lacing. Smells of pineapple, earthy hops, lemon, and tangerine must.

Taste starts with pineapple, then a bready and musty orange, with a pineapple, lemon, and light tangerine finish. Feel is chewy with a nice amount of creaminess, a bit below average carbonation for a beer of this ABV.

Sampling a 22 oz bottle at cellar temp poured into a snifter. The beer pours a clear copper color with creamy yet large head of 5 cm foaming up even with a gentle pour. The foam recedes slowly to a sturdy surface layer and leaves tight lattice after each sip.
Aroma is grapefruit rind and pine branches with a little herbal tea mixed in. A 5 hop IPA seems accurate here with a wide range of scents on the nose.
The first sip reveals an average body with a smooth texture and very fine gentle rolling carbonation.
The flavor is briefly grainy malt with just a hint of sweet toffee but rolls very quickly to a hop dominant finish.
I get a dry citrusy and pineapple finish that leaves a lingering bitterness on my palate, yet I dont feel like this is a complete palate destroyer.
I dont get any hints of alcohol and dont think this is a double IPA by any stretch.
A well made and complex American IPA, doesnt seem "west coast" and I enjoy the variety of hop characteristics that I pick up. I would try this one again and folks in eastern PA should give it a shot.
