3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle-im not going to bash this beer like most people are i think its decent for what it is. I am not a fan of this brewery at all, but this beer was not bad. pours clear bright orange with a small soapy white head. nose is piney, earthy and lighly herbal with some tea like qualities. smells like they used both american and noble/brittish hops here. flavors are piney, resinous with a very lite malt backbone. long piney and earthy finish with a bit of resin. a little sessionable IPA that I thought was better than most people think it is, especially from this brewery.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
From bottle. Pours prototypical clear amber with small white head. Aroma is citrus and melon. Thin mouth feel. Big on fruity citrus floral hops, but also a little fruity ester in there, thus the melon. Pleasant bitter finish with alcohol well hidden. I really like this one, but Iím wondering if itís because I had it immediately after an imperial stout...oh well, Iíll rate it as I taste it. Scrumptious.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
BottleÖ Lightly hazy orange ale with a small, fluffy, white head that never fully dissipates and leaves some very intricate, Freudian lacing on the glass (my wife sees a dragon and a penis, but thatís probably the heroin talking). The lightly floral, earthy bouquet also yields notes of grapefruit and pine with a touch of biscuit. Barely medium-bodied with a raspy mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. The flavor doesnít just lean on the bitter side of balance, it lives there. The hops are assertive, tannic, woody and biting while the biscuity, bready malt is only an afterthought. The lengthy finish is thin and heavily bitter.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Amber with a short off-white head. Spicy and citrusy hops hit the nose first but an underlying caramel aroma comes forth as well. Spicy hops, citrus fruit, orange peel and light caramel all come through as it is consumed. Body is resinous and light-medium with a soft carbonation. Lingering hop bitterness throughout. Ends with bigger spicy and bitter hops, lessening orange peel and citrus juice, and hints of toffee and tea leaves.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2011 bottle in West LaFayette. OK for Hops level and some aromatics but mostly dry hops. Fairly nice lacing but just OK as an IPA.
2/2011 Another bottle, not quite an IPA, maybe a pale ale

Pours a light tan, low head .. muddled and insulting .. hides the abv well but too screwed up and not well made.. I was not even surprised at all that this beer was garbage, i went in with hope and got the good ole breckenridge charm .. . avoid this! .. . Oh good. I was worried youíd choose mad cow.
