First had: on tap at Rock Bottom, King of Prussia, PA

Poured a slightly hazed golden-yellow with a foamy white head that receded to a fine layer of bubbles. Mainly citrus hops on the nose with floral notes and a touch of malt coming through. Hops and more hops in the taste, pretty bitter, some citrus and pine notes, and some toasted malts just making an appearance in the background. Light-medium mouthfeel, and pretty drinkable, though a bit on the harsh side sometimes, so I usually don't feel like having more than a mug.

On cask, via hand pump @ the King of Prussia Rock Bottom on 7/24/10. Served in an oversized mug.

Pours a clear copper, topped with a little over a finger of frothy bright-white head. Retention here is very good, staying near a finger the whole way through and slathering the sides of the mug with a cascade of lacing that slowly drips down the sides. The aroma is hop forward up front, being green, earthy, and herbal, with some pine poking through and some tropical fruit tones mixing well with the sweetness of the malts. This took a bit long to finally open up but once it did, this was pretty solid.

The taste is green with grapefruit flavor and earthy bitterness, while some pine resin adds a certain degree of stickiness to this. The hops are well balanced here by a sweet backbone of bread and caramel character from the malts, nicely cutting the bitterness, and leaving just some light drying grit and residual juicy fruit notes. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, with a great feeling smoothness to the carbonation that keeps this flowing just effortlessly across the palate, aided by an almost non-existent ABV.

I think that I often take this for granted since it's always on tap, but man, I forgot just how solid of an IPA this is. Full flavored hop goodness here, with a ridiculously drinkable body (especially on cask). IMHO one of the best IPAs in the Philly burbs here.

First, I have to say I'm a little biased toward this beer. I drink IPAs almost exclusively and am a Rock Bottom regular. This is one of my favorites of all time, it stands up there with any of the more available IPAs, like Hop Devil or Green Flash. The other brewpubs in the area, like Sly Fox and Iron Hill, can't even come close with their standard IPAs.

Golden with an amber tint. Bitter hoppiness with some citrus. Not very malty. The bitterness stays on your palate. Nice head with great legs. Has been kicked up to 6.3% abv with the latest batches. If you enjoy a good IPA, you'll love this, it never gets old.
