Pronounced Liberty and Cascade hops, medium malt flavor. A hoppy American-style Pale Ale from prohibition days when a toy tiger in the window alerted patrons to a hidden speakeasy. 32.6 IBUs.

Bottle to pint at Barley Island. Looks solid; a very slightly hazy burnt orange with foamy off-white head. Smells of bitter and piney hops, caramel, and a touch of grain with a pleasantly bitter medium-bodied mouthfeel. A good APA.

Patrickctenchi (6101) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - MAR 7, 2012
Dull orange, cloudy...fast receding off-white head. Nose is hoppy, orange. Taste is mild hops, and a mixture of citrus fruits...orange, lemon, grapefruit...malt. Not a bad beer... a little raw, perhaps, but that might be a trait of the "prohibition style"....not too bad at all.

[Bottle] Tawny orange in color with a dense off-white head on top. Nose is of crisp citrus hops and lighter pine notes. Moderately hoppy taste includes orange/grapefruit. Caramel and toasted bready malts provide a reasonable balance in here. Average mouthfeel and palate. Pretty standard.

Tasted at the Beer of Summer event at Oldsmar Tap House. Pours a burnt orange with a small white head. Sweet aroma, citrus, but not very strong. Taste is decent, citrus, piney, with a light malty taste. medium mouthfeel, atleast goes down smooth. A decent beer but nothing more.
