joshmcg000 (370) - Iowa, USA - AUG 13, 2012
Pours clear copper. Aroma is pine and caramel malts. Caramel malt backbone, with a good blend of bittering hops. Mostly pine and slight citrus from the hops. Pretty run of the mill IPA, but good nonetheless. Could be more bitter, but Its a good starter IPA.

Backlog. 12 oz via bottle. Aroma and flavor of citrus, pine and light hop resin. Crisp and pretty easy to drink. Not bad.

Bottle Julie brought from Illinois. Pours orange/copper with a slight beige head. Aroma is citrus and fruit. Med body, almost. Flavor is lightly roasty caramel, and some fruity/earthy hop. It is bitter. Might have been a big deal in 1985.

Straight bitter hops with carbonation and a wheat grain finish. Would not buy again...

A middling IPA. Pours amber with a thickish head. Light bready sweetness and an indistinct citrus and grass character.

HuskerTan (748) - Kearney, Nebraska, USA - SEP 7, 2014
Bottle. A- Citrus, hoppy, watery, pine. A- Amber color, hazy liquid, white head. T- Hoppy, bitter, unbalanced, subtle citrus, pine. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, bitter finish. O- I would be embarrassed to sell this beer under my name. Just a poor IPA that is very unbalanced and lacks flavor and is nothing but bitter water.

Pours a mostly clear amber color with white head. Citrus and cereal grain on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a floral note.

1pintatatime (111) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 29, 2014
Pours a deep amber color with a thick, creamy off-white head. The pillowy head dampens the aroma, but thereís a bit of caramel and earthiness coming through, along with some floral notes. Taste is not great. Starts out more like an amber with a sweetness thatís appealing, but then a harsh, bitter flavor comes to the fore. Itís not a subtle mix of sweet and bitter. Rather, the bitter just clobbers the malt. The finish isnít bad, but overall itís too much like average home brew.

radagast83 (5601) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - JUN 20, 2014
12oz bottle brought back from the midwest. Poured a clear amber color with a medium white head. Aroma was heavy hop notes - earthy character, some light pine. Flavor was earthy hops, huge malt notes, caramel. A touch more malty than Iíd have liked, but it was pretty clean and easy to drink in the end.

If you have distributors with focus on "craft" brands, without all the mainstream brands, and distributors who actually know beer and care about the quality, you sell more beer. Very simple.

Orange-red pour with an off-white head. Aroma is floral hops and caramel malt. Taste is caramel malt, bisquit, little earthy hops. OK tasting beer. Hoppy aftertaste. Nice lacing.
