While the place is fantastic, this beer was fair at betst.
Poured a cloudy light brown with a bit of a copper hue. The head was off-white and didn't hang around too long but did leave a bit of attractive lacing.
A bit of earthy hops combined with a big dose of caramel malts is all that the aroma offers.
Taste pretty much mirrors the aroma.
Mouthfeel was as expected with a light to medium body with low carbonation.
Overall, this is not a great example in my mind of even an english IPA. Hops are very low and mostly earthy.
Serving type: on-tap

Draft at the brewery on a Pittsburgh visit. Pours clear golden colored with a very small soft white head. Aroma is light fruits, some light grassiness, and not much else. Flavor follows with lightly sweet citrus, sweet light malts, hay, nearly no hop presence whatsoever. Light bodied with medium low carbonation. Meh.

Appearance: Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. There was a scant head that fell quickly to a very thin ring of foam.
Aroma: Sweet grapefruit with a definite malt presence.
Taste: There was a faint sour hit at first contact, but the predominant taste was malt with some oranges and maybe bread along with a mild hops presence. The hops lingered along with some of the malty sweetness.
Mouthfeel: The body was on the thin side. The carbonation was appropriate.
Overall: This drinks as a classic American pale ale. It was refreshing and enjoyable; I especially liked the hints of orange in the taste. I don't think I've seen this in my area (southeast Michigan), but if I see it when I'm in the Pittsburgh area, I'd consider getting some.
