3.84/5 rDev +7%
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.

Poured clean with a light white head.
Aroma of citrus hops and mild malt.
A well balanced IPA that presented the hop bitterness without crushing the palate. Good overall body and presentation of malt. Enjoyable IPA that raised the desire for another. Nice job Matt.

3.56/5 rDev -0.8%
Pours a thin creamy off white colored head, with brief retention and good lace, cloudy (yeast?)
The arome has some light hops followed by distinct malt, with a nice toasty/grainy quality. The malt is too dominating which is a shame as there is some hops here
Medium crisp entry on the palate, with medium bitter hops, followed by distinct malt, toasty and grainy as in the nose, ale yeast
The body is full, with a fine carbonation and light to medium sweetness
The finish is long of bitter hops and predominate malt. The hop oils linger long, with the malt hanging on to the end
Overall a good IPA, somewhate out of balance as the malt dominates the hops.
Best at 45-50 degrees
