Penn Brewery-East End Brewing-Arsenal Cider House Cheeky Yinzer

I ordered one of the three Pittsburgh Craft Beer Collaborations, Cheeky Yinzer, while at Bocktown in Robinson. This beer was a British Style IPA and was brewed at Penn Brewery with assistance from Andy at East End and Bill from Arsenal Cider House. The beer pours a caramel color with a frothy white head. The aroma consists of caramel, pine, and lemon. The taste has a nice caramel flavor on the front end with a large dose of toasted toffee. A light grassy hop flavor with lemon accents the sweetness nicely. The alcohol content is not available online, but I would estimate it to be about 5.5% ABV. As for a British Style IPA, this beer was a great example. It was fresh and clean with just enough sweetness to play with the grass and lemon flavors.
