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.

On tap at Romas Restaurant in downtown Pottsville PA.
Bought to the table in one of those pint glasses with ads all over it, which made it difficlut to judge the appearance. Appeared to be somewhat cloudy, with a thin head. Head did maintain to the end however, and there was some lacing, again difficult to judge due tothe glass (I realize that this is out of SC's control)
Smell gave off a good strong whiff on hops.
Taste was very good, which I confess was a bit surprising since I've never given SC much credit. Full hops flavor in the entire mouth. Did leave just a bit of an odd unpleasant taste right in the back of the mouth. However this did not linger, and did not much hinder my enjoyment of this beer.
Mouth was above medium, very slightly syrupy.
Overall, a good beer to have with my wings. Nice and hoppy. I see it's only a limited one time release. Pity, I'd like to have this again. Oh, well, back to Romas later i guess.
