On tap: The aroma consists of of light chocolate, caramel, citrus hops, and a touch of nuts. It’s a transparent copper with a small beige head that quickly fades to a thin film outlined by a slightly thicker. There is a nice sheet of lacing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with light-moderate chocolate and caramel with a hint of fruit. The finish has light citrus/grapefruit with a touch of roasted nuts. It’s light bodied with soft carbonation and mouthfeel.

This is a great bastard child of a beer. The hops of an IPA with a hint if the roasts of a brown ale.

On tap at the Field House. Aroma is pine cone, biscuit, and walnut. Pours brown with a nice big frothy head. Taste is an odd mix of pine hop and dirty nut shells. Overall the two tastes clashed more than they complemented. Hard to swallow.

Great Brown Ale. Hoppy like India Pale Ale, though is more mild on the toungue, so it makes this beer more drinkable. Prominent beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Rated on 7-08-2011 (Bottle at Hall’s Tavern at Coventry-Fort Wayne, IN) This bottled beer pours a medium sized tan head that mostly diminishes, transparent copper body, fizzy carbonation, and one ring of lacing. The aroma is caramel malt, biscuits and citrus hops. The taste is bitter, caramel malt, some chocolate, citrus hops, and has a dry finish. The mouthfeel is tingly and this beer is medium bodied. The hops are upfront in the flavor, but not over the top hoppy tasting. This is a beer I would drink again.
