Tap. Pours hazy orange, medium white head, dissipates quickly, good lacing. Aroma is light caramel, pine, not much going on here. Flavor is light sweet, medium bitter, not much going on here either, harsh finish. Medium body. Meh. I assume it was not fresh, but it is what they were pouring on tap...

In general this was a nice IPA. Smooth and balanced with a hop nose and good flavor throughout.

22 oz bottle. #847. (Friar Tuck) Springfield, IL.
Murky golden brown colour with a huge foamy off-white head. Yeast, fruity and piney hops, mild bitterness and dill pickles in the aroma. The flavour is a bit... off? Yeast, dark bitterness and mushy hoppiness. Not exactly very enjoyable. Strange. I was looking forward to pop this one open...

jandd1983 (2085) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Sampled at the brewpub. It poured a clear orange/gold color with an off-white head. The aroma was very hoppy with some sweet malty notes. The taste was of piney hops and malts. It had a medium body. The finish was hoppy with a lingering citrus aftertaste. One of my favorites.

Nice citrus aroma up front. Then a good citrus and slightly piney taste. A good and not overwhelming after taste.

Headbanger (2938) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - MAY 14, 2013
22oz bottle 5/14/13 (Jewel Clearance Rack)-42° in Shaker-Pours a murky amber with a small white covering for a head. Aroma of malt and hops. Taste of hops, malt, and citrus. This medium bodied brew is nicely balanced and quite tasty.

crossovert (6339) - Illinois, USA - FEB 26, 2013
Its a good one, smicoe and amarillo dominate the smell while it is a herbal yet citrusy flavor with a decent malt backing.

Draft. Earthy and floral hops with a good dose of caramel malt backbone. Nothing super special but quite drinkable.

bottle. The aroma is strong hops, some floral notes. The taste is super bitter upfront and lasts through the whole drink. Not a huge fan.

Bomber into my new glarus glass. Caramel and pine aroma. Pours murky amber with a lovely fluffy toasted marshmallow head. Good head retention on this beer. Taste is piney and tropical hops, brown sugar, and bready malt. Good bitterness on the front end, just enough sweet malt to keep it from being too hop-forward. Carbonation is soft. Great IPA. More of an English style IPA, the sweetness is almost ESB-like.
