Beer just became avaliable_ still waiting to try - just adding to Beer Advocate database for now. This is not the previous pale ale (english pale ale) that is retired. Most Starr Hills are of decent quality give this new one from Starr Hill Brewery a try.

Ok, not as good as many Pale ales in Philly area. Back of the pack lite colored ale. I tried again, I do not know why so many people enjoyed this beer, you certainly do not live in an area with alot of great IPA's, I gave this very regular IPA my lowest rating ever. It tastes like a budweiser.

WOB TAP. There are better choices. This has the finish of absinthe or wormwood. Mama always told me if I don't have anything good to say don't say anything at all. Enough said.

On tap at Pizza Paradiso-DuPont. Kind of bland with some unusual citrus, metallic notes. Extremely light bodied, pale golden, early airy head. Grainy with chemical notes
