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.

Pours a clear golden hue from the bottle. Medium carbonation, smooth malty backbone, love the "feel" of this beer, kind of a thicker viscosity. Not overly hopped yet plenty of bitterness, I find that all is in harmony here, highly enjoyable, strong IPA. Commercial description has it right, there is a fruity aftertaste yet dry at the same time.

This is one of those no holds barred hop explosion... There isnít a lot of malt backbone to this. What is there is a great tasting amount of sweetness... The major shine to this beer comes from the crazy complexity to the hops. Citrus and some fruitiness... Itís good is what Iím saying... Very good.

Pours golden orange with a small white head. It smells like chalk, copper, grass, and earthy hops. The taste is a little sweet with a bit of honey, earthy bitter hops, and grapefruit rinds. Itís a pretty good easy to drink ipa.

Clear golden white head. Citrus nose. Green hop flavor, cloying, with decent malt background. It does taste pretty big.

A very nice IPA. It would be top notch if they could get some aroma out of it. As is, there is very little aroma. Sweet nice mouth feel with a citrus light pine very slight bitter flavor. The head is the most amazing part of this beer... it never goes away even after a couple of hours! Nice brew.

Bottle to Shaker. Pours light amber, light hoppy nose. Medium bitterness, with note of earthy, floral hops, Finish is clean with some lingering floral notes. Not bad.

bottle via trade. pours a very clear orange color. medium white head. slightly tropical but mostly citrus hop nose. some underlying malt sweetness in the nose as well. Taste is moderately sweet with some light fruity hops, not very grapefruit-like. finished with a peppery note and a touch of warming. a little sweet for my taste. not much bitterness either.

Poured into a pint glass there was a nice head, golden color. Grapefruit and floral aroma. First sip was a little sweetness well balanced by hop bitterness. Medium carbonation and a little warmth from the alcohol. All together a very good IPA that I will have again.
