COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our newest beers, it is very unique. It’s light alcohol content makes it very drinkable, but the hops pack a wallop. Brewed with four different malt, plus Herkules, Magnum, Centennial, and Cascade, and more Herkules go into this one.

Brewed in Latrobe,PA? Pours an orange amber with a big white foamy head. Nose is grassy hops with sweet biscuit malt notes. Palate is fizzy, filmy and lightly dirty. Flavors of caramel, grassy hops, sweet breads.

Shag (2585) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 23, 2012
This poured a golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some mild citrus, grass, and fail. Um how is this an IPA? Very mild citrus flavors with no bitterness. This would be a great session beer to slam during a game but in the IPA world no way. No pine, perfume, no bite and 4.2%? No IPA is ever below 5% and should probably be at least 6%. Im not blaming RB cause the brewery calls it an IPA..... This is a circus all right, confusing, overpriced, and no real value.

Pours a honey gold with a finger and a half of fizzy white dissipating head. Soft citrus on the nose with subtle sweet bread to back it. Taste is surprisingly unique. Bitter grapefruit without much hop presence from the earthy end. Nice wet refreshing slick feel to finish and a lingering bitter citrus. Carbonation is moderate to low but a decent body. Overall a decent IPA for its price point. This is sort of one of those beers that can get dusty on the shelves in MN and there’s no canning date so I’d like to try a guaranteed-fresh can. Regardless, perfectly drinkable.

DocLock (7743) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 3, 2012
Can from Blue Dog. Pours hazy canary/straw colored with 1-finger splotchy off-white head. Nose is pretty hoppy, resiny, tannic, with pale malt. Tastes of astringent resiny hops, a bit malt light, with a piney acidic finish.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Bottle. Pours a hazy gold with a large sudsy head and aromas of soapy hops. Flavor is also pretty soapy with a little citrus and not much malt to play against it. It is very good for a 4.2% ABV beer, but I would rather have a few more horsepower.

Not a bad IPA, with a good noticeable dose of Cascade and Centennial hops. Still, the malts grow too sweet, with a heavy jolt of caramel that undermines the bitter finish. Finishes piney and clean; fairly easy drinking, not a hop-bomb but perhaps an IPA to please your wussy friends.

LinusStick (2823) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2011
Ugh! Did I get a bad bottle? This is barely drinkable. Aroma was weak. Caramel malt is detectable but not much. Pour was a nice enough dark gold with a thin off white ring for a head. Taste was terrible. Very weak in the beginning with a slight earthy note but not much else. Mid swallow, this terrible window cleaner/terpentine flavor fills the mouth and coats the top. Not that I’ve tasted either, but what I would assume they taste like based on their aroma. The mouth is left bitter with a mix of lemon rind hops and industrial machine cleaner. Average carbonation. Almost a drain pour

msante79 (2210) - Mount Prospect, Illinois, USA - DEC 17, 2011
On tap at The Claddagh. Pours clear honey color with white head. Aroma of grassy hops, light lemon citrus, and some caramel malts. Flavors of bitter hops, lemon, bit of soap, and some caramel malts. Has a decent amount of bitterness but is a bit grainy. Nothing special.

Beerona97 (2397) - Washington, USA - DEC 12, 2011
Clear gold, frothy beige head. Aroma of lemon and orange. Taste is lightly bitter, lemon rind. Light body. Not a bad beer, but more of a hoppy lawnmower beer.

mcox90 (1529) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 2, 2011
12 oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Pours dark amber with a 1" white head that leaves rings of lace. Citrus hop aroma with taste being the same. Malt background. Moderate in body with a bitter finish.
