Pours an amber-orange color, clear, small head. Aroma is not all hoppy. Actually has some malt smells. Taste is the same. Good balance of malt and hops in the sense that it is an English IPA. Of course, I like American IPAs better, but this isn't bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Nashville brewpub. Clear amber in color with a one-finger whitish head and decent retention. Aroma is sweet caramel and earthy and citrusy Noble hops. Smells decent. Flavor is fairly standard for the English IPA style. Caramel malt and a modest hop profile with citrus, spice, and earth notes. Medium-bodied with average carbonation. This was one of my least favorite beers at Bosco’s, but still worthy. Drinkable if nothing else.

hotstuff (4874) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - OCT 3, 2009
Draft at Nashville location. Small tan head with a short retention span, transparent body with carbonation, fair amount of lacing, and a yellow-golden hue. The aroma was malt, hops and yeast. The flavor was malt, hoppy and the bitterness reared its head. A fairly smooth mouthfee and a medium bodied IPA. An easy to drink IPA since this was not overly hoppy tasting.

This draft brew from the brewery poured a small sized head of finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated dark orange colored body. The mild aroma was malty. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of mild hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

Draft @ Nashville location. Amber in the glass with a frothy off-white head that leaves some lasting and good lacing. Decent malt and floral aroma. He flavor has caramel, hops, and hints of spice. Dark chocolates come out in the flavor as it warms some. Medium body, smooth, and a medium bitterness throughout.
