draft at the Wilmington, DE location

Served in a standard shaker pint, Riverfront is a golden-orange in color with a decent, low head. Immediately striking nose of bright citrus rind and other tropical notes atop a fairly clean body. Lovely resinous aroma and some clean, bready malts. The flavorful citrus and tropical notes continue on the palate with a lightly sweet, pale malt body. A drying, balanced bitterness enters to finish. Overall, found this one to be a surprisingly impressive example.

Holy crap! IH's Riverfront IPA is atypical for East Coast IPAs: it is worth checking out, and more akin to the west coast style.

Minimally turbid, and not a belgo IPA, so points knocked off there. Otherwise good head retention, and nice golden hue.

Nice floral notes. I can't for the life of me distinguish American hops, so who knows the hop profile. Smells am awful lot like RR Row 2, so I'm guessing its dry hopped w/ Simcoe at least. Whatever the hop profile, it's nicely aromatic.

Taste wise, there's a tiny touch of sweetness up front, but that's gone quickly as bitterness takes hold. It tastes very much like a well made West Coast IPA.

I don't say this lightly: if you are in the area, take the time to seek Riverfront IPA out. IH is a good brewery, and I have respect for what they do, but this takes them back to a level I didn't think I'd see again after their ridiculous Soured Old Tom offering in 2008ish.
