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.

From a 12 oz. long neck brown bottle with a blurb about a war that was a tie, except we won when Ol’ Hickory routed the British at New Orleans in overtime, a best before date of Sep.19.06 that I didn’t care too much about since I hadn’t tried this. Poured a clear orangey copper with a foamy white head that settled into a thin soapy, sudsy lacing, a small amount of ringed sticking. Aromas of grapefruit and hints of pine with light sweet maltiness in the background. Good carbonation and a crisp, dry and smooth medium-light bodied mouthfeel. Good IPA taste, grapefruit and oranges that have a dry bitterness on the tongue, sweet grain malty with the lightest touch of caramel, the alcohol is well masked and provides a soft warmth in the throat and a dry hoppy finish. This is a very quaffable IPA, another good beer from the Cleveland brewery, one of the better breweries in the United States.

Bottle: Pours a a golden color with a decent sized white head. Smells like a bit of orange with a bit of pine and earthy tones in there as well. Taste is very earthy... lots of pine flavor and some grassy notes. An enjoyable brew.

Consumed one week after "best by" date.

Pours with a clear, bright copper body, mild carbonation and a thick, cream-colored cap. Some vegetal notes greet the nose first, but they wear down as the head dissipates. Next it becomes like a tomato sauce as hops add a spicy, herbal character. Finally I find the grapefruity aroma I was expecting with an added twist of lemon. The taste is much more reliable with a bittersweet rollercoaster of flavors merging the caramel sweetness of malts with the sharp bitterness of citrus rind. Sweet tea creeps in at the finish to add a pleasant touch of complexity. Smooth in the mouth with a light tingle and a dry ending. Very good... until I swirl the half empty glass and once more breathe in the vegetables, this time with a light dose of alcohol as back-up. Here we go again...

<font size=-4>Thanks for the bottle <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/View-User-14352.htm&g this was really more enjoyable than the numbers make it out to be.</font>

beautiful orange body with minimal white head...aroma starts with light fruit (primarily green apple and white grapes), and has a sort of vinegar-like, sugary finish...flavor of light fruits, apple skin/core, orange peel, coriander..finishes with a tart bite...a very unique beer for this style

BenDover (223) - Texas, USA - SEP 20, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2006 Pours golden, dense white foam, lots of lacing. Hoppy floral aroma. Bitter citrusy hops flavor but malty and more complex than most IPA’s.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2006 Loved the hop bitterness from start to finish. Missed the off-setting malt sweetness and body.

Clear golden color with a beige head. Aroma of citrus and piney hops. Citrus hops make you pucker.

aracauna (3488) - Georgia, USA - SEP 11, 2006
Pours an attractive, clear amber with a frothy head that has a yellowish cast. The hoppy aroma mixes with a little bit of pale crackery malt. The flavor is much less hoppy than expected, but this is still a tasty beer.
