Pours a nice clear amber color. Has a rye malty aroma. Flavor is strong rye and malts with a touch of bitterness and a light hoppy aftertaste. Overall a solid offering but could be better.

Served in a flute on tap here at Croxley's Ale House.

Appearance: Semi-cloudy Amber. Light bubbles with a white head rising to maybe one finger's length.

Smell: Bland hops, have a heavy citrus tone to it but scent dissipates quick even after inhaling.

Taste: Little sour and heavy hops. Lightly bitter. Brew is nice little compliment to almost any dish.

Mouth: Medium to heavy bubbles. Carbonation is a nice touch but then again it is from the tap.

Overall: Not a bad brew and fairly inexpensive, might be better options out there but it's all a matter of what you're craving. Salud!

Look - Opaque in appearance. Dark honey color. Off white head.
Smell - Floral, spice, earthy, caramel malts, some toasted notes
Taste - Follows the nose with a pop of bitterness on the back end that lingers a bit.

Overall - A floral IPA. Not for me.

8/27....pours dark cloudy amber, flecks of light at the bottom and a foamy lid that sticks. Resin pine smell. Floral. Rich toffee bready noted taste with a packed hop bitter that punches through. Staying power for the bitter. Real good.

Draft at John Wright in Wrightsville, PA.
Interesting that's it's labeled an IPA. It's got a malt sweetness followed by a modest hop bite, followed by a rather odd aftertaste that's anything but IPA. Too much maltiness, too much sweetness. It's not bad, but it's not an IPA. All things considered, I'd call it an ESB. And there are better ESB's out there.
This is worth a try, but I wouldn't buy a case of it.

Full of hops at 7%, it's local and that may be the reason I enjoy. Almost always fresh

12 oz. can

Pours a clear amber orange, yellowish head is a quarter inch thick and pillowy. Retains well.

Smells of maple and honey over biscuit with some light floral and piney hops.

Tastes of biscuit and graham cracker malt, bit of honey, and a floral hoppiness. Grapefruit citrus finish.

Medium body with a soft carbonation on the roof of the mouth.

Above average IPA that falls a bit short of being fantastic but is very satisfying and enjoyable. Easy to drink with a nice head retention, aroma, and body. Taste is appropriately pronounced but could stand to have a bit more nuance and hop flavor. Overall, definitely worth a try and a decent IPA to have over most common stuff.
