  • Iron Hill Hopfenweizen
    rated 4.3 10 years ago

    Aroma: 8 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 10 | Overall: 9

    On draft at the Newark location. This one impressed and should make the style proud. I go back and forth on these neuvo styles that seem so trendy, but this was a great combination of seemingly PacNW-hops and the standard hefe-base, a paring that I wouldn’t expect to work great together? Justin at IH may have outdone Brooklyn/Schneider here, imho. Pour was as expected, looked just like a hefe. The aroma was dead on with the hefe ester and yeast base with citrus and pine hops complementing. The flavor followed, a well done hopping that didn’t overwhelm everything else about the wheat base. Really quite nice. I hope it comes back every so often.

  • Iron Hill Berliner Weisse
    rated 3.3 10 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 7

    On draft at the Lancaster location. Pour was hazy pale golden color, light head and splotchy lacing at best. The aroma was wheat and barley malts, straw and hay. The flavor was wheat, barley, and pils malts. With warmer temperature, lemons/lemongrass, sour citric notes. Light, refreshing, lingering light acidity.

  • Iron Hill Rye Saison
    rated 4.2 10 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 9 | Mouthfeel: 8 | Flavor: 9 | Overall: 10

    On draft at the Lancaster location. Light golden color, decent initial had that had weak retention for the style. Good lacing somehow. But all amazing from there on. Aroma featured some sweeter candy apple and light fruit malts, a firm black pepper presence and some off straw notes too? Flavor wakes ya the heck up with firm in your face pepper and hops and presumably the spicy rye bitter twangy malts. Something from that spice rack too herbs and spices blend. Phenolic character is firm. Light fruits are present, light bananas at wamer temperatures. Mouthfeel was light and full at the same time. Refreshing heck of a beer. Dang good. Fantastic, in my IH top five. Good and lively carbonation.

  • Iron Hill Rauch Weiss
    rated 3.5 10 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 8 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 8 | Overall: 7

    On draft at the Lancaster location. Poured a hazy orange color with good hefe-like appearance. The aroma was meaty (hickory?) smoked malts, slight bubblegum. The flavor was firm meaty smoked malts, light wheat under it all, the phenolic and fruity esters of the hefeweizen were much subdued behind the smoke. Sour and citrus notes were most noteable from the base beer. Bubblegum was faint in the flavor. Mouthfeel was moderate and finished clean, slightly on the malty side. A decent shot at the style, but I don’t think meaty smoke is optimized in a weisse brew.

  • Iron Hill Blackberry Dubbel
    rated 3.4 10 years ago

    Aroma: 6 | Appearance: 7 | Mouthfeel: 6 | Flavor: 7 | Overall: 8

    Draft at the Wilmington location. The pour was purple in color with a very thin pink-burgundy colored head, hard to get color in the dark Wilmington location. In any event, the aroma ws rich strong sour blackberries and that was pretty much it, a touch of cherries. The flavor was all blackberries with some cherries too. Sour and acidic, light caramel under it all. Unfortunately, there wasn’t enough caramel and/or chocolate type depth of the base beer. Tanins, faint oak, sour bite. Pretty good, but it loses points for not displaying enough of the base style and the malts. Really came off as a blackberry Flemish sour. But, it was quite refreshing for a summer night after volleyball. Good, just not really dubbel-ish. Body was light too for a dubbel. I wonder if Brian is out of blackberries now?
