I picked up this bottle a week ago from Cranbury Buy Rite. I hadn’t tried anything from this brewery and the only thing that I really knew about the brewery was that it had a deal up for awhile on Living Social and was in Pennsylvania. So, I grabbed this one to try out and used one of my new IPA glasses. Let’s see how I liked it.
Style: American IPA
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “American IPA, enough said. Notes of passion fruit, tangerines, sweet lime, and grapefruit. 70 ish IBU’s nice lingering bitterness.”
Random: The label on this beer felt incredibly glossy, almost like photo paper…very weird.
This brew poured with a two finger white head that dissipated rather quickly and left very little lacing on the glass. The body was a slight cloudy amber color with low carbonation present. The nose reminds me of old hops. There was a definite citrus note with pine and mustiness. There was also some tropical fruits, but not as much as advertised on the description. The taste was a bit better than the nose. It had some mango and grapefruit notes with some pine sap and light bready malt. What I didn’t get were any notes of sweet lime, which would have been interesting if present in the taste. The body was very thin, which took away from the flavor. There was generous carbonation present. The finish was really quick with some citrus. This beer didn’t do much for me. I was quite surprised that this got so well rated on beer review sites.
