COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Medium bodied and well hopped with dry, fruity aftertaste, this monumental India Pale Ale honors the hero from The War of 1812 who battled the enemy on Lake Erie.

Had this on draft at the Winkin’ Lizard. My ears still hurt. Aroma was light on the hops. No head or lacing. Dark yellow color. Hoppier flavor than what the aroma indicated. Nice long finish. Mouthfeel was kind of flat. Not bad, but nothing I would want to take back to Atlanta on the plane.

Pailhead (4842) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2006
Bottle: Big piney aroma with some hints of fruit. Pours a transparent golden-orange with a small white head with fair retention. Very nice lacing. Sweet apricot and a touch of honey up front mixes with a huge piney finish with a hint of citrus hops. Long bitter piney aftertaste. I prefer the citrus hoppy IPA’s and I’m not usually a big fan of the real piney versions, but this is solid.

roder60 (1285) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 26, 2006
Pours a clear gold with a medium amount of quickly dissapating white head. Aroma is light slightly sweet piney and grassy. Flavor is sweet and not as hoppy as i would have expected. deinite grass flavor. Somewhat soapy finish. Overall, decent.

ross (2088) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - AUG 25, 2006
Bottle from Matt (DrBayern) Thanks! Orange colored in the glass, not much of a head. Pretty clear. Smell is grass, pine, hops, and fruity. Taste - similar, nice drying hop effect to it. A pretty drinkable IPA to be as well hopped as it is. Goes pretty well with spicy foods. Very nice.

MrBunn (2459) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 24, 2006
Golden amber pour, very translucent, lots of bubbles and one finger of bubbly head that dies down quickly. Aromas are of fruit, hops and soap. Flavor is a little unbalanced up front where things start off really grainy and head into unchartered (and somewhat unexpected) territories of bitter hops. There is a slight chemical/phenol bite at the end that pulls it even further off course as it highlights the alcoholic content. Body is very thin feeling.

redlem (1301) - Ohio, USA - AUG 23, 2006
Man, not even close to Burning River. Yes it is dry hopped but man is this very average. An initailly small weak head with a clear body. Medium aroma, mainly acidic hops. Body is light with hops adding nothing at this point, no malts. Very average for this brewer. Disappointing.

3fourths (8055) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2006
Bottle. Clear amber orange color. Grassy, oily sweet sugar hop nose, very nice smelling. Properly bitter, nice and biting on the lips and tongue, with crisp, fresh grassy, even tinny, but in a good way. Very enjoyable, fresh, properly hoppy IPA.

SpringsLicker (3152) - Tennessee, USA - AUG 22, 2006
This starts with a large, three dimensional, sticky white head over a brilliantly clear gold body. The aroma is fruity citrus. Subdued sweet flavor. The hops never really burst out in this in either the flavor or finish. Needs more malt and hops to go with the top IPAs.

tmad (93) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2006
UPDATED: AUG 26, 2006 Much fruitier than other IPA’s, not as bitter, but very enjoyable. A light to medium body, love the surprisingly strong fruit and piney flavor, a dry finish. A fine beer.

chimpscampee (566) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 21, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 7, 2009 The bitterness bites you on the nose right out of the gate and doesn’t let go ’til you cross the finish line. Quite fruity and hoppy. A well-balanced great IPA-- very surprised it doesn’t rate higher on this site drinks this bitter do not appeal to all.
