First had: on tap at Iron Hill, Media, PA

A pretty standard IPA; not too strong or hoppy. But then I like my IPAs hoppy, so...

Poured a clear, golden-yellow with a thin white head. Aroma has a pretty good balance of sweet malts and citrus hops. Floral and citrusy hops up front, and malty sweetness following, with a bready quality. Pretty mild. Light-medium mouthfeel, and somewhat drinkable, but not extraordinary.

A-Golden tinted light copper with a medium white head that lasted and left behind nice lacing.

S-Light floral/citrus hops with a bit of malt sweetness. A bit of grassy/herbal hop aroma in the background.

T-Hop forward floral/citrus hop bite with a biscuit malt backbone. The malt is fairly unassuming letting the hops shine through. A nice touch for a "low" ABV IPA.

M-Medium-light bodied and a bit on the thin side. A smooth, creamy texture thanks to the cask delivery saves the day for this one!

D-Highly, despite the light body this is a tasty, easy drinking hop forward sessionable IPA. Well done, would make any Englishman poud!

May 10, 2008...

Had this on-tap at the brewery restaurant on Main Street in Newark, DE...
According to the in-house manager, this was the current seasonal offering...
Appeared in the serving glass with a very minimal head that quickly receded and left hardly any lacing at all...
Nice, strong aroma filled with hops, and bittersweet essences...
Very piney, citrus-flavor, with a burst of bittersweet, pink grapefruit to match... a strong dose of well-balanced hops with an equally good mouthfeel that left a very strong citrus aftertaste on the tongue...
Good drinkability as well make this an all-around pleasing sample and a very good representation of the style...
Recommended...

A good IPA from Iron Hill- very traditional in its flavors, subtle and satisfying. Pours a golden amber with good lacing. Floral hops dominate the aroma- some malts come through. Nice light carbonation on the mouth. Hops are not very strong but a strong malt character, bready and slightly sweet comes through. Less hoppy than most, but still true to the style. Drinkable, sessionable and tasty.
