COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our organic IPA uses Tomahawk, Cascade, and Centennial hops for a rustic, rough-hewn hop character that pairs great with food or relaxing among friends. Prominent citrus and pine aromas and bitterness that is not over the top balances this medium bodied copper-colored brew.

Pailhead (4637) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - JAN 10, 2006
Bottle: Lots of caramel and toffee in the aroma with hints of floral hops. Pours a mostly transparent amber with a minimal yellowish-white head. Caramel and toffee up front with a pretty big floral hopped finish that lingers for a little in the aftertaste. Slightly metallic in the finish as well.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 8, 2006
12oz bottle. Rusty brown clear appearance, tin, toast and nuts in the nose with a metallic hop note. Earthy, gritty, peat-like grassy hop flavor with more nuts and bread crust. Weird, not exactly flavorful or enjoyable.

oldrtybastrd (3223) - Fort Walton Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 23, 2005

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - NOV 23, 2005
Caramel malt aroma stands out. Dark orange with a large and firm white head. Tastes like a super hoppy amber ale..lots of malty caramel flavors followed by a smack of hops int he finish. Not very well integrated flavor wise, but drinkable enough.

AlabastorJones (800) - San Francisco, California, USA - NOV 5, 2005
citrusy yellow head, lacey brown body, strong alc. flavor sweet, syrupy, barley wine-ish, sprucey and well roasted not unlike a deliciouse sandwich eaten in haste and deeply regreted because of a scraped throat

DrunkenWeasel (224) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Acceptable. Mahogany colored with a thing white head. Smells slightly hoppy. Taste is hoppy with some weird sweet flavor that I can’t place. Aftertaste is rather bland.

IndianaRed (2337) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Bottle Pours a clear mahogany with a dingy coloered fairly lasting head. Sweet maly arom with caramel and fresh cut wood. Quite bitter flavor citrusy and piney. The bitternes lasts well into the long lingering aftertaste. Very soft carbonation and a moderate feel.Fairly "green" grassy and woody. I don’t pick up on such an obviouse sweetness, but I stil am not to high on this one.

Sickboy282 (1115) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 19, 2005
Pours a light amber hue with a light slight off-white head. Aromas of caramel, a little orange peel, and a hint of pine. Flavors of sweetness....ugh..... a litttle too sweet. Not very carbonated, whichI normally like, but this just finishes a little off. A little overcloying o the finish.

OhioDad (2493) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - OCT 16, 2005
22oz bomber - Pours coper with no head at all. Aoma is light caramel and just a touch of citrus. Flavor is caramel, a bit of floral hops, almost a soapy flavor. Palate was rough very rough. Seemed very unbalanced. No smoothness at all. No carbonation either. This was rough to drink. Not very good in my opinion. Definitely niot good enough to put in a big bottle!
