A-Clear amber orange, well carbonated, two finger head with some lacing.

S-Rather hoppy, more earthy than citrus, caramel.

T-Well balanced, nice bitterness in the finish. Earthy hops, some citrus, caramel and malt as well.

M-Medium bodied, velvety with nice carbonation.

O-Not a hop bomb but well balanced. The alcohol is well hidden, did not know it was 9% when drinking it, or I would have slowed down.

For my 100th review I've decided it to be most appropriate to have a local brew. (State College, PA). Go Nittany Lions!

A- Pours a deep but translucent amber with a huge rocky tan head that sticks around forever.

S- Quite a hop presence, with not detecting much malt to back it up. Very citrusy and clean smelling.

T- Follows the nose very consistently. Clean and refreshing, but not quite balanced enough; something is just a little off. The finish is quite dry and bitter. The malt reappears here with a more dominating presence.

M- The carbonation is towards the high end of the scale and the body is medium, if not thin for the style.

O- I like this beer, but don't love it. The price is great at $4 though.

22 oz bottle. Pours orange with a short lived white head. Aroma is of citrusy hops, orange marmalade, pale malt and ripe fruit. Body is full and tangy. Citrusy, herbal hops, caramel malt, and ripe fruit fill the mouth. Finish is long and very hoppy. Very nice IPA.

Bought a 22-oz bottle while in Williamsport, PA. Cost approx. $3.50. No freshness or bottled on date can be seen on bottle.

Pours a clear copper color with okay head that thins to a lace. Good carbonation evident. Smells American hop citrus & pine upfront with supporting malt sweetness to back it up. Perhaps a little too much sweet caramel malt in the nose. Tastes hoppy upfront with a nice firm bitterness and a lingering resiny hop flavor. Malt is there and supportive, and does not get in the way of the hop notes. Mouthfeel a tad too heavy due to the perceived sweetness. Tastes dry yet sweet.

Overall, a very decent double IPA. Would drink again, especially for the price.
