Sampled on draft at the brewery on 7/15/11. Pours a hazy amber color with a large creamy tan head. Aroma of earthy notes and herbal hops. The taste is caramel and earthy hops. A bit of a lingering hop burn. Medium bodied.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Light amber, good head. Light earthy hop aroma. Caramel accented flavor. Much like an amber in almost every way, just not any real hop character. There is something lurking in the background that appears to be the very, very early onset of an infection. Either that or something added a very unusual flavor that is exactly like that of an early onset infection. I really want this to be a good brewery, but...

Yes this is getting one of the best ratings of beers i’ve had. The only thing lacking here, is that wonderful IPA smell. It is not for the IPA lover, but the IPA learner. Very mild, smooth, unique flavor. Not like any other IPA out there.. get it. Its more like a Tamed Hammerhead.
