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.
Serving type: growler

Poured from tap into pint glass....nice golden color and even better lacing. Slightly cloudy but still looks great. Head clings to the side of the glass top to bottom. Pine, citrus/soapy flavor to be expected. Flavors mix well and are typical of the style but don't stand out or set themselves apart from the miriad of other decent IPA's on the market. Good...better than good, but not "great". Easy drinking without any unpleasant aftertaste. Alcohol is masked well, but would definitely sneak up on you if you didn't know better. I would have again.

A - Cloudy orange gold a finger of off white head, light spotty lacing.
S - Really weird aroma, very soapy, somewhat floral, sour orange and lemon.
T - Some sour orange and lemon, light pine, and on the end there's a lot of soapy kind of taste, some light spice too, rye and pepper, in the end.
M - Dry, thin, and very soapy.
O - No thanks. will not have again.

3.74/5 rDev +4.8%

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.
