Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 11-20-2004

A blend of Bravo, Amarillo, Cascade, and Centennial hops give this beer a crisp, hoppy flavor. Dry hopping with Centennial gives this beer a beautiful aroma of citrus notes. Balanced but complex, this beer is a refreshing brew.

This is the featuted draft at Manny Browns in Langhorne PA. The color is a golden hue a lot like most In its style. The smell is very faint and inoffensive This is a very good IPA. Well balanced hops. Nothing too flashy as well so I can't way it is world class, but very solid.

A - Murky gold with one finger of soapy off white head, a little spotty lacing
S - Caramel malt, orange juice an big grapefruit, some pine,
T - There is such a huge toasted nutty malt flavor to this its shocking. Some mild pine and grapefruit juice come through, its mildly hoppy.
M - Bitter a little soapy and chewy.
O - This should for sure be classified as an English IPA, the toasted nutty malt taste makes it feel like a brown ale, but its mildly hoppy. Nothing extravagant.
