A: A billowy light tan head forms above a canyon clay colored body with a heavy protein haze within. Broken soapy ring lace, faint misty rise of effervesce.
A: Aroma was light to moderate in strength, a bit sub-par in complexity, very sweet caramelized citrus best describes this with a leave of pine hops.
T: The flavor was sweetly toasted specialty grains meeting juicy wet citrus and pine hops. Lightly dry hopped, lemon straw with only a moderate hop bitterness.
M: Light mouthful, lacking in crispness, light carbonation and mildly unexciting.
O: Overall middle of the road offering that lacks stand out features. Malting is decent, a bit heavy handed on the speciality grains, but the hop strength and complexity lacks anything more then entry level appeal.

Appearance is a cloudy light copper with a half finger of head that dissipates quickly. The nose is lightly hoppy as is the flavor. There is also some malt in the flavor profile but not much. Basically, this is a mild IPA – none of the flavors really pop.
I suppose that practically all contemporary brewers feel like they must brew an IPA. As a result, many of them end up pretty forgettable. This is one falls in that category.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a poco grande glass.
A-Pretty hazy amber-orange body, nice 1 1/2 finger head. Nice amount of lacing left in the glass from the beginning to the end.
S-Grapefruit, lemon, pine, some maltiness. Some earthy aromas are definitely there too.
T/M-Bitter hop on the front end then followed with a bready malt finish. A little too much carbonation which doesn't really allow the flavors to come out. Not as hoppy as a West Coast IPA, a decent East Coast interpretation, imo.
O-A good IPA from a local brewery that is putting out some solid beers. When this beer sells a portion of the money is donated to a local charity to help protect and restore the Schuylkill River and its sources.
