This big double aipa delivers a better than expected taste.

It looks nice and yellow with semi-sticky white little fizz. Nice. The aroma is an excellent hoppy, dry smell, as good any ipa I've had in a few weeks.

The whole package is far better than expected, still, I would get some and drink it asap - it is going to disappear.

My first from Rivertowne Brewing, it's pretty good. Pours hazy amber with a think white head that lasts. There's a lot of lacing on the glass. Aroma is decent, smells like an IPA. Taste is hoppy (shocking for a DIPA) but is well balanced. Mouthfeel is good, befitting an DIPA. Looks like I'll have to find where Export Pennsylvania is. Based on the can's graphics, near Pittsburgh. Nice work Rivertowne.

Yes, this is another beer courtesy of the sultan of canned beer, woodychandler. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a cloudy, dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some oranges, a bit musty. Taste is hops, bold and aggressive. Oranges, pineapple, some malts are present. Feels medium/full bodied in the mouth and overall is a solid beer.

12oz can poured into a snifter. Pours a hazy golden with a fluffy white head that slowly falls leaving great retention and sticky lacing. The aromas have tons of orange along with some caramel malts. All orange and malts. The flavors seem to follow the nose. More orange along with some grapefruit. Some fresh pine needles along with some pine resin as well. The malts are definitely there giving this one a sweetness to it, but it has a solid bitterness as well. Alcohol goes completely unnoticed. Mouthfeel is nice. It's full-bodied with moderate carbonation. Very smooth and creamy. This one is dangerously drinkable.

This is a solid DIPA. It's well crafted for sure, but it's just not personally my type of hoppy brew. It's still very enjoyable and fun to drink.

Pours a golden straw with a half finger of head. The nose is both piney and fruity. The flavor profile is relatively well-balanced with and there is a dry and mildly hoppy finish.

Unfortunately, there is also a slightly mediciney aftertaste.
