I guess we'll call Fordham the other other brewery in DE after Dogfish and Twin Lakes. Purchased at Whole Foods, Devon and poured into Sam Adams "Perfect Pint" glass. Clear orange amber color with no haze. Slightly piney smell. Very hoppy taste upfront with some lingering bitterness in the mouthfeel. Not my favorite IPA but pretty solid and a good buy given the 7.5% ABV.

Poured into DFH IPA glass; translucent, light orange-yellow with a moderate white head that fades into a lovely ring of foam that leaves incredibly fine lacing rings.
Smell is dank herbal hops, some tropical fruit and citrus, hint of pine and bitterness.
Taste is bitter, piney and herbal. No fruity hops detected, despite the fruity nose. Hint of bitter citrus rind perhaps, but that's about it. Hops destroy any malt flavor as well. Finishes dry with lingering bitterness.
Mouthfeel is minimal, smooth and dry.
Overall, not the kind of IPA I'm a fan of. It's all bitterness, not much actual flavor. Not bad if that's your kind of IPA though.

This was one from a sixer I found at Dewey Beach Liquors while on summer vacation at costal Delaware.
Look: Color was a hazy golden color with some deeper tones in the middle. The head was a fluffy 2-fingers of beige foam that stuck around for the duration. Lacing was vry sticky and spotty. Carbonation bubbles were even and throughout.
Smell: Aroma was of grassy hops and a sweet honey malt character.
Taste: The taste proved to be a very light palate from what the brewer's specs suggest (75 IBU's and 7.5% abv). Honestly I was expecting a level of complexity found more in a Double IPA. First off was a light kiss of herbal hops. Then a sweet malty resin hit just for a moment.
Then the high IBU's managed to appear to basically form the finish and aftertaste.
This was a solid brew that followed the drinkable approach found in Fordham offerings. I would grab this again.
