Tap at Lancaster brew pub.

Fluffy foamy 1 finger head fades semi slowly with spotty almost soapy lacing, somewhat hazy golden honey colored.

Nice fruity hops, very floral, light tropical even, very little malt, but a hint of sweet boozy malt profile.

Taste starts fairly bitter, quite hoppy with earthy spicy hop kick, nice sweet malty balance to it doesn't get astringent, light citrus and fruity hops too, faint kick of booze, mild sweet malt attempts to balance but falls a bit short, mostly just props up the hops.

Mouth is med to slightly fuller bod, bit of warming booze, decent carb.

This poured out as a very nice clear orange color with a small soapy white head on top. The retention is thin with a nice sticky lacing. The smell of the beer gives off hoppy aromas of oranges, banana, pine and some mango. The taste is sweet upfront with a nice malt profile that fades into the bitter strike of the hops that balance this out. The mouthfeel is smooth yet sharp with some strong carbonation and bitterness. Overall it's a sweet beer that transitions into a very resiny IPA. I found it enjoyable and very happy to have finally tried this.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

A - Pours a dark gold color with a very thin head and lots of carbonation.

S - Tropical fruit and fruit rinds. Oranges, grapefruit, pineapple with super light caramel malt.

T - Hopped to high heaven. Tropical fruit, pungent rinds, spicy, and floral with minimal caramel malt coming through. This beer is a perfect mixture of sweet vs. bitter hops and is pretty much a full attack on the palette. The two nuances blend perfectly and creates a swirling sensation between the two going from one to the other before finishing with an aggressive pine floral combo for a long lingering finish that also coats the mouth with an almost metallic-like sensation.

M - Full bodied and smooth carbonation.

O - One of the best D-IPA's I 've had in quite awhile and well worth the effort in this out of the way Philly suburb city.

Had this on 2012-09-14 in Lancaster, PA at Iron Hill Brew Pub

A - Mostly clear, golden-mahohany with a big 2-finger head in a mug club mug. The head faded fairly quickly but left good lacing.

S - Lightly tropical with lots of pineapple. Flowery hop oils and a hint of caramel malt. The hops have faded some since the initial release of this beer in the spring.

T - Candied fruit (orange and pineapple) supported by caramel malt, floral hops, spice and some pine. It is initially pretty sweet followed by a moderatly-bright citrus taste and some oily yet-restrained hop bitterness. As the sweetness fades, the taste improves to a fairly sharp, red grapefruit bitterness and residual sweetness. The alcohol is present but not forward. I like the taste, particularly after getting past the initial sweetness.

M - Medium-heavy body and light-medium carbonation (almost as good as on-tap) Sticky, resinous and mildly prickly.

O - A very fine offering from Iron Hill. Glad to have this brew in any format.

Thanks to IrishColonial for sharing this one the other night. It poured bright amber in color with a thin, sticky white head clinging to edges of the glass. Pretty clear with nice color and good lacing to it.

The aroma is bright with some really nice tropical fruits to it. Pineapple, mango and grapefruit all come out. It has a bit of a candied, sweeter fruit presence to it, which I love.

The taste shows more of the juicy, fruity, tropical notes up front. The finish shows some strong resiny bitterness with notes of grapefruit and pine. Nice range of hoppiness to it and very drinkable as well.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with carbonation being about average for the style. Overall, I thought it was a great beer. Very drinkable and hoppy with a very good range of flavors to it. The sweeter, candied, tropical like fruit flavors were especially outstanding in it.
