Notes/Commercial Description:
This beer is retired; no longer brewed.

Stonefly IPA has been refreshed with the addition of Citra Hops and introduction of a new dry-hopping process we call Alle Zeit Hopfen. A new dry-hopping contraption we custom built called HopfenKubel that we designed to slowly release dry-hops continuously for 48 hours into the fermentation tank. This will allow more surface contact time with the hops and beer fully maximizing the aroma and flavors from the hops. The addition of Citra Hops deliver a spicy, floral, strong citrus and tropical tone of grapefruit, melon, lime, gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee. Stonefly IPA will continue to support the efforts of the Schuylkill Action Network and donate a portion of proceeds to the Berks Watershed Restoration Fund to protect the source waters and health of the Schuylkill River watershed.

IPA is my go to beer. Therefore I have had a lot of good IPA and a lot of want to be brewers that think they can make a name for themselves with a bold and distinctly hoppy tasting IPA. This tasted more like badly brewed pale ale. This is no where close to what an IPA should taste like. In addition I have been to hundreds of brewery's across the country and Saucony Creek Brewing has remained at the bottom of my list.

Very very mild IPA. Lacking the strong hoppy / bitter taste an IPA should have. Taste more like a pale ale. One of the poorest tasting IPA's I have had

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25

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.
