Style: English India Pale Ale (IPA)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.00%

Availability: Year-round

Notes / Commercial Description:
Standing firmly on the east coast end of American IPAs, our India Pale Ale emphasizes balance. An insistent malt character from traditional floor-malted English barley harmonizes with a generous amount of Chinook and Amarillo hops. Fruity and aromatic, our IPA is perfectly balanced.

I had this beer on tap at the Hitching Post Restaurant in Bern Township PA and was impressed with the golden amber color. Good foam head but the bubbles dissipated quickly. The lacing was thick with good retention on the glass. The bouqet was lacking for my taste with just a very faint smell of citrus but not enough to distinguish anything in particular. The flavor is very good with a good hop presence on the front and a malty almost biscuity lingering bitter tangerine finish on the back. The carbonation is a bit too much for me. It filled me up quickly. Overall a decent IPA but I couldn't n see myself drinking more than 2. Good summer IPA.

The beer appeared an orange-ish color, slightly hazy, with a nice thick, white head that was decently retained. Citrus hops and slight bready aroma. The beer, for an English IPA is too hoppy, in my opinion. I expected it to be more balanced with the hops more muted. Nonetheless, citrus and earthy hops with some pale malts. The beer had a moderate feel and was easy to drink. Overall, a decent beer.

a: Slight haze, light copper color. Served to me with two fingers of long lasting, sticky, latte froth.

s: Biscuity malts, herbal noble hops, and a hint of medicinal alcohol.

t: A little bit of sugar cookie sweetness to go along with the biscuit note. Floral hops with lingering aspirin bitterness.

m: Creamy with spot-on gentle cask carbonation.

o: A very nice beer with definite English character. Very glad to find this on the hand pump.
