Pours a clear deep golden with a nice, well-lacing wispy white head. Aroma is fairly assertive and hoppy with a mild touch of sweeter caramel malt showing up. Body starts with a light sugary malty sweetness with a slight corn and cooked vegetable flavor, only momentarily before some fresh piney hops take over and lead to a drier bittersweet and crisp finish. A decent IPA that would be very nice were it not for the off-flavor.

Thanks to Moejuck for this one. Very bitter on the tongue. Not real hoppy but bitter anyway. A bit of malts and fruit but bitter on the tongue in a tasty way. A nice offering from Great Lakes.

Golden color, medium off-white head. Very hoppy aroma overpowers citrus a bit. Flavor is slightly better balanced with the fruitiness coming through on the finish. Went down easy... surprised to see this is 7.5%.

DocLock (7703) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 25, 2006
Thanks to JPDIPSO for this one. Pours deep dark straw colored, with a hop, bready malt, apricot, and lemongrassy aroma. The flavor was hoppy, piney, and malty, with a lot of apricot, some honey, and some lemonrassy hints. Medium palate that was very smooth on a hot Delaware day.

12 oz bottle. Golden, clear, and nicely carbonated in my glass. Spicy and grassy aroma. The flavor is grassy and spicy hops all over a lightly malt body. Itís a bit much actually. Lightly sweet hints at the finish. Medium body that fluxes from semi-dry to lightly sweet. Itís ok but it no burning river.

Aroma was heavy on the biscuit and grain,hops were present but they definitely were not of the pine citrus nature,taste was malty with carmel breadygrain lots of bittering hops with some oily hop taste in the end. Actually tasted very good,just needs more or different flavor and aroma hops

This is what I am drinking right now with some regularity. Clear golden with a medium sized medium lasting white head. Frothy. The nose is present with just a kick of malts and hops. Nearly some copper. The taste has pine and lots of sugar sweetness. Very good and very drinkable.

Orangey color,little head. More like a thick film. Aroma of mild citrus hops with a hint of pine. Tastes pretty decent,nice hop malt balance with some juicy citrus. Solid brew.

Sampled on draft at the State College beer festival this beer poured a caramel color with a large yellow-tan head. The aroma was sour nut and floral hops. The flavor was strong bitter sour nut, piney hops and floral hops with a bitter and sour finish.

06 State College Brew Expo. Pours a translucent golden with a large foamy off white head that sustained and left some lacing. Aroma was very caramel, toffee and some orange. Not very hoppy. Flavors of the same with some pine, citrus and lots of sweet malt and grains.
