Tap at the brewpub

Pours a slightly hazy honey amber with a white sudsy head.

Smells of dry and citrus hops with a hint of maple.

Rich honey malt flavor with fresh floral and citrus hops and a bit of earthy bitterness.

Full body with a soft carbonation.

Tasty DIPA with good flavor and aroma, falls a bit short in the body. Otherwise attractive sipper that is easy enough to enjoy, although not a top shelf DIPA.

Can't believe nobody reviewed a bottle of this! Not sure how old it is but I picked it up at the House of 1,000 for 5 bucks.

A - Fairly hazy DIPA with no sediment (thank goodness) and a 1/2 inch of tan head that surprisingly has some stickiness to it.

S - Smells of tea leaves, citrus hops, and pine. Caramel and cracker malts have a touch of English zest.

T - Surprisingly not bad. The pine aspect of it provides a resinous bite which blend to lemon zest like hops and a caramel and English like malt.

M - Bottle says it's 8.5% ABV and it seems pretty on par with that. Hoppy and medium bodied.

Overall quite a hoppy and clean IPA with a somewhat sessionable ABV and a fair price. Not sure if I could find it again but it was the best offering I ever had from Rust Belt.

Had this one on tap at Fat Head's in Pittsburgh.

A - Pours a deep copper color, crystal clear, and a thin lacing ring at the top of the snifter. Carbonation is mild and steady.

S - Light pine, floral, and citrus with light caramel malt in the background.

T - Mimics the nose with light floral, pine, citrus, and caramel notes. Has a slight amount of sweetness of front from the caramel before the floral, pine, and citrus set in ride the rest of the wave and finishes the beer with very dry finish leaving the mouth coated with a lingering pine and grapefruit bitterness with a little bit of caramel tang.

M - Medium body, smooth carbonation on the tongue, and slightly lip smacking from the malt.

O - This is a really good and solid D-IPA! Never heard of Rust Belt before, not deep a deep beer, just very solid, I don't know bow else to describe it. Well brewed and very enjoyable, wish I could get this in my area of PA.
