Style | ABV
English India Pale Ale (IPA) |  7.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Standing firmly on the east coast end of American IPAs, our India Pale Ale emphasizes balance. An insistent malt character from traditional floor-malted English barley harmonizes with a generous amount of Chinook and Amarillo hops. Fruity and aromatic, our IPA is perfectly balanced.

2.83/5  rDev -24.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

A: Amber hue, clear, coppery, white head that quickly fades with no lacing left down the glass.
S: Mostly malt sweetness, caramel and not much else. A fairly assertive estery alcohol note stings the nostrils. A formidable scent.
T: Sweet malt, loads of sharp bitterness on the back of the palate that lingers.
M: Solid, but everything else leaves me pretty disinterested. It does finish drier, which is nice for a more malt-forward beer.
O:No real complexities that I could detect. Mostly crystal malt and aggressive bitterness that lingers.

Serving type: on-tap

3.79/5  rDev +0.5%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Pours hazy gold color with a small off white head that faded quickly and left good lacing. Smells of sweet malt, caramel, biscuit, lemon zest, floral hops, grains and some citrus fruit. Pretty basic nose, but very well balanced and better than normal for an English style IPA. Tastes like it smells, with malt, caramel, biscuit, lemon zest, floral hops, grains, orange peel, toffee, mild spices and some citrus fruit like orange juice or some citrus hops. It's sweet but the malt and hops taste is evenly divided for great balance and drinkability. Tasted much better than it smelled. Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with average carbonation, a medium body that was a little chewy, and a malty aftertaste that was sweet with nice citrus accents. Overall this was a nice English style IPA that would make for a fine session beer.

3.81/5  rDev +1.1%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

12 oz bottle was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: A one finger head was poured that reduced to a thin layer. It is a pale orange color with great clarity and vision of bubbles coming up through the glass. Nice lacing down the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Caramel, toasted malts, light citrus, herbal, and grassy hops.

Taste: Definitely malt forward with the hops and bitterness in the rear.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, fruity, chewy, medium bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Nice take on an EIPA. Next time in Philly, 'I'll check these guys out and this beer too.
