Draught in a flight at the brewpub. Pours a mostly clear amber color. Nose is nicely hoppy, with some good floral elements to it. Taste is moderately bitter, and has a bit of a bite to it. Was probably my favorite beer of theirs I had on tap.

Draft at Brewpub. Dark mahogany brown, little head. Smooth, very soft/under carbonated. but a harsh hop bite. Underwhelming.

Dogbrick (7959) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2013
On draught at the Westin Seattle bar. The beer pours a slightly hazy copper color with a medium off-white head that dissipates quickly to a film. Short strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt and hops. Medium-bodied with flavors of caramel malt, hops and citrus. The finish is mildly bitter with an earthy hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Rich sweet caramel malt backbone with moderate sweetness.Some grapefruit and orange zest. Grainy with a bready note and lingering spine. Good but a tad generic.

improvjock (321) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JAN 3, 2012
On tap at Wingdome. Pours a copper red with light off-white head that leaves some nice lacing. Floral hops and crystal malts in the aroma. Flavor is malty with complex hop flavor and a clean finish. Better than I expected!

IndianaRed (2383) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JAN 19, 2011
On Tap at the brewpub. Clear redish amber, lively carbonation and a very nice lasting sandy colored head. Light toasted carmel malt aroma and some spicy up front hops. Hoppy enough to tame the light carmel sweetness but still an amber. Nice middle of the road beer.

AmEricanbrew (5798) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - NOV 12, 2010
Clear dark amber color/ beige head. Mild tea leaf, spicy caramel aromas. medium bodied. Decent spicy toasted caramel sweet grainy flavors, with a mildly bitter finish.

Ibrew2or3 (6846) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - APR 30, 2010
On tap at the brewery/brewpub. Pours effervescent deep copper with lasting nearly frothy head. The mild aroma is spicy and earthy hops. The mouth feel is pretty nice defying the bubbly appearance and tossing up an attack of spicy to pine to mildly earthy hops and then moving slowly toward malts, crystal like malts and some modest malt roastiness. The hops peak midway. As almost all hop bitterness comes to the surface the body of the beer drops out.
