COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Broadhead’s Underdog Pale Ale is a hard-hitting, deliciously hoppy beer that delivers a strong, lingering, bitter finish. Balanced by a foundation of malt and a subtle sweetness that give Underdog its lively character, Broadhead’s Underdog packs a serious punch.

Growler straight from the source. Aroma is mediocre, appearance is nice and cloudy. Tastes like you pulled off the upset.

hazy golden orange pour with a small white head, some retention and a sticky lacing. fruity cereals - doughy malts, some caramel, danky peaches, honey, strawberry-like hops, but also resin, booze. moderate carbonation, light body - oily, grassy-spicy-peppery-piney slightly harsh finish. meh.

JoeZasada (285) - Beaumont, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 18, 2013
Pint. Pours a hazy amber with a very thin layer white head. Very light aroma of citrus. Taste is bitter, notes of pine, with an earthy undertone. Not much detected for malt. A bit thin. Finish is bitter, with an earthy crispness. Not bad but would benefit from more flavouring or aromatic hops, and a tad more malt. The low carbonation diminishes the aroma.

Tasted as a sample at the brewery. Decent american pale ale that I liked better than the version of Wildcard I sampled at the same time.

solidfunk (3873) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Strong lime peel aroma here. Heavily hopped and good, but needs a little more balancing out. Pours golden with great head and carpet lacing. This beer has some good potential, just needs some rigging. Finishes very bitter. Tap at Back Tomato.

Smells like an IPA. Yep tastes like an IPA. oh and ther is that bitter bite at the end that proves its an IPA. The problem, I don’t really like IPAs. My wife is loving this one though.

rejtable (1267) - Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2012
Meh. Pours orange. Some citrus notes, some cereal like notes. Very light body. Decent, but definitely not a "serious punch".

blankboy (6018) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2012
Growler from the brewery. Pours a murky copper with an average size diminishing frothy white head and decent lacing. Aroma of bready malt, light hops, grain, a hint of vegetal notes and some light, slightly sour fruit. Flavour of light hops, bready malt, light vegetal notes, some fruit and grain. Average bodied. Pretty good, a little mild for my liking but we drank it easily. -- Rated via Beer Buddy.

cfrancis (2312) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 26, 2012
Pours a hazy dirty gold with a thin white ring. Aroma is faint malt. Taste has a moderate bite of hop bitterness but lacks the great hop flavouring. Slightly medicinal and metallic in the aftertaste. Average.

Lubiere (9871) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2011
A hazed amber ale with a very thin white head. In aroma, nice caramel malt with some smooth floral hops, and light boiled veggies. In mouth, a sweet caramel malt with herbal hops, a bit of solvent notes, not bad. Growler from Probstk, tasted with Probstk, GRM, Boutip and Ian, Dec. 2 2011. Merci Karl.
