COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed as a medium India Pale Ale, this full-flavored moderately hopped beer has the strongest hop character of our ales. Made for hopheads and new beer aficionados. The grist composition is 94% Pale malt, with the remaining grain bill consisting of carastan malts. The finishing Mt. Hood hop addition in the whirlpool gives this beer a good hop character without becoming excessively bitter. The beer is fined instead of filtered so the hop character is not stripped away.

12/15/2013. On tap. Mostly caramel aromas with hints of citrus and pine. Light hoppy flavors, but way too muted. Caramel mostly. Color is amber with a white head. Pretty plain.

Pour on tap at the brewpub, clear red pour with thin slightly off white head, aroma brought notes of grass, slight orange, grapefruit in there mixing into some slight spice, nice caramel and toffee in there, a bit weak. Taste is a mix of red fruits, some caramel, toffee, slight vanilla into spice, nice orange peel, grassy notes, finishing fairly bitter.

Surprisingly good. Citrus forward with a fresh hop bite. Nice malt backbone. Recommended! A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours murky dark yellow with a small white head. Smell slight juicy citrus. Taste bitter, thick, and oily Thicker bodied. One dimensional and boring.

This is not a red. Very Hop driven and flowery. Notes of soap too. Unfair for me to say since this sort of thing ain’t my bag baby.

Growler from the RAM in Wheeling, supplied by ck1 to the Mom-without-Bill tasting. Thanks bro! Has a nice aroma, fruity and pine. The taste does not following all the way. Would have another.

On tap at Ram, Tacoma. It pours an unclear, dark orange body under some off-white to light beige head leaving curtains. Lots of pine cones in the aroma, not much maltyness kicking in. Fruityness and a touch of peaches too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. Quite dry, with a nice bitterness in the flavor, both initially and in the end. Some maltyness to back it up. Certainly a nice IPA, well worth a second and third glass. 130629

Straw body with amber tint. Light caramel notes with some weak crystal and milled grain. Minimal sweetness with fruit notes. Light citrus and maybe a touch of pine. Very pedestrian but nothing offensive.

Draft at shaumburg. Aroma is mostly hops, grassy and floral. Taste is light nitter. Meh, nothing super special here. Drinkable but boring
