brewpub draft

a: pint glass serving, the ipa is a deep amber in color with a dark tan head, showing good retention and some lace

s: lively hop nose with a slew of earthy pine and citrus rind hops and a touch of tropical on the underside, fresh orange and tangerine, resin, pale malts with some caramel sweetness form a backbone, great start

m: a low to moderate carbonation and medium body combine into a smooth, creamy mouthfeel

t: a punch of earthy pine hops upfront with big notes of fresh citrus, some tropical notes underneath, sappy tree boughs and fresh orange rind, toasted pale and some caramel malts, full flavored and balanced, a great bitterness begins midway and builds to the finish

o: just an all around great ipa, assertive but balanced and solidly east-coast, awesomely drinkable

On tap at the brewery

Appearance: Cloudy orange, decent head.

Nose: Big tropical fruits on the nose with a tiny bit of flaky croissant malt in the background. Kinda unassuming from the aroma.

Taste: The first sip blew me away. Tons of mango, pineapple, grapefruit up front that fades into a subtle toasty malt. Its complex with layers and layers of different hop flavors. Stayed intensely flavorful and intriguing until the last drop.

Mouthfeel: spot-on, no complaints.

Overall: I'd go ahead and call this one of my top IPAs period. It's criminally under-rated thanks to the size and location of the brewery but it makes the 2.5 hour drive from Philly worthwhile.

The beer pours a clear golden amber with an inch if white head that fades quickly with little lacing. The nose is sweet with a subtle citrus and white grape. The taste packs in much more bitterness and a slight grapefruit rind aftertaste. The mouthfeel is sweet, medium bodied, well masked alcohol, balanced grapefruit bitterness, but is slightly under carbonated/syrupy. This is a well made, yet average IPA considering the other IPA options available. I'd probably pass at another opportunity to try it.

First had: on tap at Selin's Grove

Clearish orange-yellow pour, light carbonation with a small ringlet of bubbles for a head; not much in the way of retention or lacing. Aroma of citrus hops, toasted grains. Pretty standard stuff. Taste was also pretty basic, citrusy hops, not too potent, toasted grains, pale malts, slightly bitter. Kind of disappointing, after hearing this one talked up so much. Light-medium body, and a decent drinker overall, but nothing really special.
