12oz bottle, freshness date of Dec 2011.
An east coast beer named for the hop producing region of my state? gotta try it!
A- Pours a thin 1 finger loose tan head that quickly dissipates. Minimal lacing. Color is a devastatingly beautiful deep mohogany red when held to the light. If this had a better head and retention it could have gotten a 5. The color gets it 80% of the way there.
S- Not a lot to the nose, a mix of hops and bold malts.
T- Very well put together. A little hop fruitiness, more of that bold malt then takes hold and fights until the hops and alcohol finish it off. A Lot of bittering hops here, its got quite a hoppy aftertaste.
M- Nice and oily from the hops, perfect carbonation.
O- A great example of a Cascadian Dark ale, from all the way in Pensylvania. Its all in the execution and this one does very well. very drinkable despite the 8%+ abv. CHeers.
