look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Served) In a snifter glass.

Appearance) Cloudy - golden/orange color, white head with a good lace.

Smell) A lot of pine, grass and grapefruit.

Taste) First is a good mixture of hops and malt. Then mostly hops at the end. Some orange, grapefruit, lemon, and pine flavors.

Mouthfeel) Medium body, slick, moderate carbonation with a little warming alcohol feeling.

Overall) Very well balance and solid IPA. Great hops bitterness with just the right malt backbone. Close to a double IPA.

Food pairing was carrot cake. The spices and the sweetness of the cream cheese icing went well with the bitter hops.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a Belgian tulip glass

A: Pours a clear light copper hue with a 3-finger, white, frothy head that slowly dissipates leaving a nice trail down the side of the glass and ending in a huge lace.

S: Malty caramel aroma with a decent earthy hop background..

T: Tastes more like a imperial ipa than a regular ipa. Equal mix of sweet malt up front followed by bitter hops. Caramel malt background with that earthy hop flavor and finishes slightly dry.

M: Medium body and carbonation

O: Decent IPA – worthy of a try.

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

look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

A - poured into a snifter glass from a 12oz bottle. Nice amber color

S - Piney evergreen/hops

T - Nice hop flavor, pine, floral, with a grapefruit finish. Very nice.

M - Moderately carbonated with medium body. Very refreshing and easy drinking beer.

O - I'm not a Fordham fan but I am a fan of a good IPA and this is a good IPA. I enjoyed it and will drink this again. Nice little beer

Food pairing - I paired this beer up with a pineapple/honey glazed grilled chicken, white coby chesse, sharp chedder, and Terryaki grilled pork tenderloin. All paired excellent with the beer.
