look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a hazy golden yellowish orange with golden straw colored hues when held to a light source and a frothy two finger head that has pretty good retention, slowly fading into a lasting cap. Large chunks of soapy lacing left behind. Visible carbonation bubbling up.

Floral hop aroma that's slightly earthy with subtle citrus and a faint malt presence. Hints of oily hops, grass, pine needle and pineapple countered by caramel malt and biscuit.

Light bodied with subtle dry bitterness up front that lingers throughout over the floral/citrus notes and malt backbone into a slight dry finish. There's a real grassy, earthy characteristic that clashes with the citrus notes, creating an odd hop profile. Just an odd combination of floral, earthy and citrus notes. None of these is prominent and the blending of these flavors is kind of off-putting. Pale malt backbone provides some balance but this beer is somehow hoppy without being dry or overly bitter.

Overall I wasn't very impressed with this beer. I'm usually a big fan of Stoudts but this beer just tastes very strange and kind of unpleasant.

12oz. bottle poured into a curved pint glass

A- a not-quite-translucent goldenrod with orange highlights. A finger of bright white head that dissipates quickly.

S- not much going on. Some centennial hops and grainy notes?

T- some grainy malt notes, almost pilsner in taste, give way to decidedly centennial hop notes. Faint grapefruit and bitterness. There's just not a whole lot here.

M- a pronounced fine carbonation, thin side of medium.

O- A little disappointed. Stoudt's can do much better.

First had: on tap at McGillin's Olde Ale House, Philly, PA

Brewed for the 150th anniversary of McGillin's. Poured into a pint glass, a hazy golden brown with a finger of foamy white head; moderate lacing. A pretty decent balance of malts and hops in the aroma. Smooth, bready, sweet malts in the taste overpower the modest, citrusy hop profile. This style is typically not as hoppy as a straight-up IPA, but still, this was just a bit too unbalanced. Medium mouthfeel, and a slightly bitter aftertaste. Somewhat drinkable, but nothing too extraordinary. Also, it's from McGillin's, which is a terrible bar.

Was in the neighborhood taking a class at the Historical Society so I went to McGillan's to try this out... drank beer alone at the bar while watching the Women's Brazilian Olympic Volleyball team - wow....they were worth the walk.

to the beer... I wasn't impressed like I thought I should be, but I have to take into consideration that if it's an 1860 recipe, it's not going to be like the 21st century IPAs we love today...

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a tulip shaped piint glass; presents with a nice thick off white head; dissipates to top the beer with nice lacing and lingering cover.

Smell is mild piney, light citrusy hops with a mild malt undertone.

Taste is on the light smooth side of IPAs, not overpowering in the hop bitterness, good mix of pine/grapefruit followed by a solid malt base (not biscuity or sweet, just good presence).

Mouthfeel is on the smooth side, reminds me more of something between a philly pale ale and hoppier pale ale.

Overall, well done, this is a solid IPA on the lighter side of the flavor scale.
