Notes / Commercial Description:
Andrew Maxwell put over 1.5 decades of recipe development into this India Pale Ale, creating the fourth dimension of flavor. Combining four varities of hops produces a unique beer that has an aggressive hop flavor, bite and aroma without denying the presence of malt which I.P.A.s often lack.

A middling IPA - worth a try but probably not one you'll return too. Aggressive hop profile but a recognizable malt presence. This one has a bit more of an earthy tone to it. An orange brown color, with the earthy aroma coming through.

Went back to this style and really found i missed the east coat ipa. Big bitter cut with really sweet malt. Still looking for that hop presence but really enjoyed it vs the ne ipa

Poured into a custom shaped grip glass: color is amber, transparent, head is light tan with a very dense texture and presentation of at least 1 inch; head laces well.

Smell is neutral hops and light toasted malts: hops are earthy, herbal; malts are less noticeable in terms of aroma.

Taste is similar with a neutral grain flavor and herbal, earthy hop mix - simple, drinkable.

Mouthfeel is moderate with crisp carbonation and moderate bitterness.

Overall a good more herbal, earthy style ipa.

It has the aroma more of a wheat beer than an ipa, with cloves and just a very bland hop aroma in the background. It has more of a citra hop bend to it, but I got a spoiled mango / tropical fruit flavor going on with it. Something was off with this one for sure.

Six-pack of cans purchased in Ohio with the cans labeled as being brewed and canned in Export, Pennsylvania.

Cloudy, orange hued body; very thick, sculptured, white head; sticky clumps of foam on the glass. Pineapple aroma with notes of caramel. Old orange flavor; malty; slow building hop bitterness; earthy. Medium-heavy in body; coarse; initial sugary heaviness with a semi-dry finish.

An okay IPA that won't necessarily disappoint but probably won't wow you either. It has more of a heavier, malt sweetness character and the hop aroma, flavor, and bitterness is rather dull and unexciting.
