ChainGangGuy (4353) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAY 23, 2008
Appearance: Pours a lightly hazy, shimmering orange body with a small, wipsy, white head. Smell: Floral, leafy, even spicy hop character on a foundation of pale maltiness. Taste: Sweet, candied pale malts initially. Overall, a tangy hop character, with a number of leaves, flowers, maybe a few drops of spiced lemon water pass by the palate. Medium-high bitterness that lingers beyond the bittersweet finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: A tasty, flavorful APA.

unclemattie (4136) - Georgia, USA - MAY 22, 2008
12oz bottle. copper body. Aroma of piney hops. Light malt character. nice hope bitterness. A nice American Pale Ale.

Jmichael (640) - Asheville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 13, 2008
pours a clear gold copper with full white head, smooth citrus hop aroma, light palate with bitterness slowly arising in the front, wet aftertaste, not a bad session of a pale, but light on its depth.

Rogueone (506) - I F&ckin’ hate those guys from, Ohio, USA - MAY 12, 2008
Thanks Bill: Pours a light, cloudy orange with noticeable citrus/grapefruit character. This one is bitter from the first taste throughout. Almost bordering a bit harsh.

aracauna (3053) - Georgia, USA - MAY 11, 2008
Pours a clear true amber with a nice head. The aroma is plenty of orange hops with a cracker malt backing. The flavor is nicely balanced for an IPA, but the hops comes through mostly in aroma and flavor instead of bitterness. Pretty easy-drinking beer.

kramer (4866) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 10, 2008
12 oz bottle, via BA Deuane. Pours a nice clear dark gold body with a foamy small off-white head that settled to a wispy film. Fairly muted nose with a bit of citrusy hops and some crystal malt behind. The flavor is lots of high alpha hops, giving it lots of bitterness, but not a whole lot of hoppy flavor. The weak malt base really accentuates the unbalanced harsh bitterness. Lingering ashtray like harshness with a lingering crystal malt stale iced tea note. Mouthfeel is medium bodied, on the drier side with moderate fizzy carbonation. Overall, this just isn’t my preferred expression on an IPA.

Butters (3735) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 8, 2008
Sampled on draft at the brewery as well and remembered thinking ’too much hops and not balanced at all’ The bottle i just sampled changed my mind. Crystal clear orange amber with fair eggshell head. Aroma of corn and hops. Flavor is bitter hops but not horrably overpowering. This bottle is a little old so maybe the hops have mellowed a bit. Medium-thin mouthfeel. Decent, but i’ll still pick up something else over this.

joshwilfong (1200) - Cleveland, Ohio, USA - APR 29, 2008
golden orange with white head. mild carbonation. flavor is mild on the pale malt and strong on the hop bitterness and flavor. the bitterness is a little overpowering and can be too much for this beer leaving a acrid finish

dben900 (8) - richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 22, 2008 does not count
Loved it when I had it in the bottle, so I replaced Two-Hearted withFull Nelson. Not the same beer. I thought they sent me a mis-labeled keg. Brewery has GREAT potential, but they are not consistent.
