Pours a dark amber color with a decent head that fizzled away after a few minutes. Smells of sweet malt, fruit and Flowery hops. Nice bitter hop bite, I can dig this beer. Full of hops and sweet malt, but mostly hops. If your not a fan of hops you won’t like this. For me the more bitter the better. GO BUCKS! BEAT MICHIGAN!

12oz bottle courtesy of Brooke (thanks!). Gold pour with a bright white head. Aroma of malt, pine, floral. Tastes are along the same lines with caramel malt up front balanced with citrus and grass. Good. 7.2

Light crisp hop aroma, with some grassy notes. Pours a clear amber with a thin off-white head. Grassy hop notes are the predominant flavors, lingering bitter finish. Light and easy drinking, with a light mouthfeel. Overall a nice easy drinking beer for warm weather.

Taster at the brewpub pours golden. Nose faint tropical fruit and sweet malt. Taste hint of aromatic hop up front, followed by strong malt backbone then bitter. Nice bitter finish. Drank a lot of this when I was in school and working in Columbus.

Good, crisp, lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Moderate bitter taste, lighter, lightly zesty sweet. Hint of spicy hops. Good, hoppy pale ale.
