Bottle from local grocery near Wilmington, Delaware. Poured into a pint glass for dinner with pizza. This IPA had a decent head after pouring and smelled slightly fruity. Taste was but bitter and pretty average. Fit the bill for dinner but nothing spectacular. This was my first beer from this brewery and I hope to try more.

Poured into a custom shaped pint glass: color is copper, a little hazy, head is brighter white.

Smell is bready/biscuit, toast, maybe a touch caramel, moderate hops with earthy character, lightly floral.

Taste is less bready, less malty, but moderate presence and stronger hop bitterness - floral, earthy, drying.

Mouthfeel is crisp, carbonated, drying and sharp on the tongue.

Overall a moderately malty and sharply bitter ipa, the crisp mouthfeel seems a little overcarbonated and a bit dry.

Overall a decent IPA. Drinkable and not overly hoppy, lacking something here to truly make this a memorable IPA. Bottled from a grocer in King of Prussia.

DATE TASTED: November 15, 2015 ... GLASSWARE: Barley Creek pint.. OCCASION: recovering from the family football game--I threw three INTs!--and a much less enjoyable Browns loss... APPEARANCE: rather light. bronze/copper body that shows reasonable effervescence; nearly clear; slight, fuzzy off-white head that holds to a swampy halo ... AROMA: resinous first impression; pear, wheat grass, some citrus, and melon; very little malts to speak of.... PALATE: fizzy, light and lively at the teeth; short at the finish, with a muted, astringent mouthfeel; medium-bodied and drinkable... TASTE: the resin is clear, mingling with citrus like grapefruit and orange peel...the maltiness presents itself more in the taste than in the nostril or palate; a reasonable sourness ensues... OVERALL: aptly named, ably fulfilling its hoppy promise, with a serviceable 6.2 ABV and a pleasant if not unmemorable profile...
