Growler poured into pint glass
A: Beautiful carbonation that rushes through a rich amber beer producing a white two finger head that sticks around. Lacing is a bit frothy and the viscosity seems light.
S: A lot of hops up front with bitter notes of pine and fresh wood, light citrus fruits are present, but tame. Very similar to an IPA with the hop presence, brings an earthy aroma that is quite pleasant.
T: Good, fresh and refreshing. The taste is floral and a bit like pine or maple wood with muted citrus presence that results in a crisp bite. Picking up a bit of honey with light almost hidden malt/barley profile that plays nicely with the suppressed citrus. Subtle fruit notes lurk in the background and impart desirable sweetness that offsets the initial bitter hoppiness, orange peel, lemon zest, and mango.
M: Light carbonation – medium to light bodied with a suitable viscosity. Boasts the characteristics of a dry finish without the actual manifestation. After taste is a sweet derivative that isn’t over powering
O: A real solid choice for Iron Hill house beer. Light, tasty, and easy drinking – I’ll have no problem drinking this entire growler in one sitting. Drinks like a lighter IPA, but without suffering any flavor dilutions. This is go-to for any visit to Iron Hill.

On tap at Iron Hill in Phoenixville, PA. Pours amber with short-lived fluffy, white head and nice lacing. Aroma and taste is of citrusy hops and caramel malt. Body is medium and crisp. Finish is long and bitter. On the whole it is a good, well made brew.

On tap at Iron Hill, Media, PA.
Pours a shimmering, dark gold/amber color with a small, slowly settling off-white head that comes to rest as a thin band on top of the beer. Nicely creamy lacing clinging to the sides of the glass in sheets. Lovely floral and pine hop nose; some lightly toasted malts underneath but mainly a hop-forward aroma.
Taste follows suit; a bready, toasty malt base serves to support and balance the hops without stepping on them at all. Lots of floral and pine notes take center stage, hints of citrus as well but not the predominant grapefruit character noted by drinkers in past years. Perhaps a slight change of hop variety? Finish is dry with a bit of pleasantly lingering bitterness in the aftertaste.
Medium body and carbonation; maybe a touch fizzy, but that's being nitpicky. I thought this was an excellent, flavorful pale ale and I'd gladly return to this one in the future.
