I had this on tap at the Riegelsville Inn in PA, served to me by a beautiful, delightful gal named Beth, who's also a well known artist in the area. And speaking of art, there is plenty of citrus--orange, mainly-- in the nose, and malt notes that approach the British model in this work of beer art. It was nicely carbonated but also had a smooth, almost creamy feel. Hops dominate at the front, and malt rounds out the back end with a pleasant bit of bittering. At 7.1% ABV, it teeters on the sessionable side; a damned good choice for BBQ and post-yard work. Retro-olfaction will yield even greater rewards.

The beer looked great, and tasted fine, but not what I was expecting from an IPA rated so highly. Nice head and lacing, but not a truly great tasting IPA. However, not one to scoffed at either.
I am somewhat reticent to give it a full review or a lower rating because I drank this from a glass poured from a can. Not exactly fair to compare those that I have bottled or more so on tap.
The date it was canned on was February 15, 2017 and where i purchased it today (June 19, 2017) it was refrigerated.
Will try again, hopefully can find it on tap, but may be a problem on the East Coast.

From a can at Chickie's and Pete's during dinner. Interesting muted scent of orange soda with a slight companion of malt. Ok, pretty good flavor from a caramel malt swaying brew which is not my favorite for an IPA but this one falls short of biting caramel. Slight bitterness with a creamy thick feel.

This was poured into a becher pint glass. The appearance was a ruddy burnt orange almost burnt brown color with a thin white foamy head that dissipated at a nice pace. Foamy messiness weaves around the glass. The aroma bleeds a sticky resin sweetness, sly bitterness smooths in decently. The flavor takes the ebb and flow of the sweet hops to malts to be bitter in both accounts. Lingering resin backing aftertaste leading into the finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a nice sessionability about it. Carbonation rides at a nice pace. Overall, good AIPA that I could have again.

From the right side of the label: "BOTTLED ON: MAR 10 2017"

Appearance: The body is a hazy golden color with a short creamy textured white head. It has good retention and lacing.

Aroma: The aroma is very muted but there is a touch of citrus and a light grain scent.

Taste: I get a pretty strong candy sweetness up front that turns into a strong sweet malt flavor. It is a very addictive flavor to anyone with a sweet tooth. It has a nice mild bitterness that starts toward the middle of the sip and tapers off at the end. There is a nice hop flavor to the beer which seems to be mostly herbal with a touch of orange citrus flavor. and only a light touch of pine mixed with grapefruit in the aftertaste. The flavors combined are really, really good.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is awesome. It is very drinkable and overall it just feels bright on the palate. Great carbonation and bitterness. The body rests in that middle ground between light and medium. The finish is dead center between wet and dry.

Overall: It was a highly enjoyable beer that you never get tired of drinking. It delivers a great sweet malty flavor and a nice herbal hop character with a touch of citrus. At different points while drinking the beer it gives very different experiences and that really does make the beer interesting to drink. It makes you want to go back and sip it again to chase the flavors you picked up on the last sip but then you are met with something else, then something else again. I kept waiting for my palate to adjust but it was constantly surprised by great flavors. The only downside to the beer was the lack of aroma. While it did have some aroma it just wasn't on par with some of the more average beers on the market, which was surprising given the fantastic flavor it had. Overall I would love to drink it again and I would recommend it to people who like any variation of IPAs.

Very copper in color. Nose let's you know this is a hoppy beer for sure. The taste is very resinous and almost harsh at first. The follow through lightens up the harshness. Good beer
