There's a nice clarity to this one. Good head. Strong and consistent hop tones, but not obnoxiously so. Salty, piney, with tones of citrus. Solid flavor, though not overly flamboyant. More a punch in the mouth than a graceful ride. Funny that I've never heard of this brewery before.

First had: on tap at TJ's, Paoli, PA
Cloudy golden-yellow pour into an imperial pint glass, with a finger or so of fluffy white head that retained fairly well and left stratified layers of lacing on the glass. Aroma is hop-dominant at first, though a bit muted, and as I drank more and delved deeper into the glass, a very uncharacteristic caramel malt aroma came to the foreground; interesting and unexpected for the style. The taste reflected the aroma, starting with a typical blast of citrus/pine hoppage up front, and giving way to a sweeter sensation mid-palate, as if the malts had time-release action. Bitter finish, medium body, somewhat sticky mouthfeel. Pretty nice overall.

Appearance: pours a dark hazy orange color with a 1/2" head that lingers around a while.
Smell: pine, grapefruit, and pineapple are detectable by the nose.
Taste: caramel, piney bitterness, grapefruit, pineapple, a hint of peppercorn, and a hearty bitterness create a nice IPA.
Mouthfeel: medium bodied beer. Crisp to start, less crisp and a bit dry at the finish. Long lasting aftertaste as the pine, grapefruit, and bittereness linger inthe mouth a long time.
Overall: an easy to drink and satisfying IPA. Well balanced and enjoyable.

Pours a very cloudy, dark golden orange color with tangerine edges and a one finger, frothy white head that slowly settles into a lasting ring. Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.
Earthy hop aroma with a strong grass/soil presence. Some dirt and pine needle followed by grapefruit, faint citrus and a strong malt backbone. Caramel sweetness with hints of toffee, bread and biscuit.
Medium body wih a strong wheat/witbier character. Tastes more like a hoppy American wheat beer than an IPA. Lots of bready yeast along with zesty spice and a strong lemon presence. Dry, bitter and earthy up front but this is quickly coutered by the peppery spice, bread and zesty lemon peel. There's a strong bubblegum character as well before heavy malts come in on the back end with hints of toffee and caramel sweetness. Astringent with an unpleasant lingering medicinal quality. Very dry in the finish. An odd interpretation of the style with lots of lemon/citrus and wheat beer character clashing with the intensely earthy, dry hops.

A: Hazy nectarine orange shows up a dense cadmium orange with a vibrant rush of carbonation. A two finger bone colored head is persistant in stay. Heavy foam lace deposits.
S: Tropical fruitiness upfront, freshly squeezed citrus juice, fresh green hops, and fresh orange with just a minor hint of white peppery flair. Bready, lightly toasted malts add depth.
T: Sweetly toasted grains with a bready nature, dry citrus, and grassy hops. Dry orange & peppery flair. Deep malted, toasted dry with a dry tropical-grassy hop touch. Sweet flashes upfront turns to a semi-dry of grassy hops on the close. Nice tropical orange zestness comes on the swallow with a hint of acidity.
M: Bready, full bodied, with some sizzle from the carbonation. Malty textured, semi-dry hop twang leave.
O: Good presentation and transistion of flavors, tropical, grassy, citrusy, orangey with varying degrees of complexity backed by a deep sweetly toasted malt base. Nice fresh burst of tropical hop twang on the swallow with a very good recommendation. Defiinitly not a one trick overly (dry) hopped pony, but something with a nice spectrum of flavors, both fresh and dry, tropical, and grassy, as well toasted sweet.

Served on tap in a pint glass
Appearance –Served a medium amber color with a one finger white head. The head faded rather fast to leave a great level of lacing on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma was rather light overall. It consisted of some sweet caramel and fruit smells with hints of citrus and piney hops mixed within.
Taste - The taste starts out of sweet fruits and a grapefruit hop flavor. The beer has a creamy bready flavor that is persistent throughout the taste, which when combined with the sweet fruit creates a nice base flavor for the brew. As the taste advances further the grapefruit hop fades to more tastes of a earthy hop mixed with a good caramel flavor. Toward the end, a bit of resinous pine hop comes to the tongue leaving a bitter, but very balanced and fairly sweet, flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel- The body of the beer is on the creamier side with a carbonation level that is average to just below average. The creamy body was quite nice for accentuating the hop flavors with the creamy body feel enhanced by the lighter carbonation. Both the body and carbonation made it a slower drinker, while even only at 6.6 % abv, and actually quite enjoyable.
Overall – This was a nice tasting, slightly sweeter, but very balanced IPA. This is one I could see myself drinking on multiple occasions. Rather tasty.
