   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
tectactoe (2978) - Michigan, USA - JUN 19, 2013
UPDATED: MAR 6, 2014 Bottle: Far too volatile on the pour, one inch of beer and five inches of head... Even with a slow pour! The foam lasts forever, too, & while it leaves good lacing, it takes 15 minutes before I can drink the damn thing. The liquid has a deep amber, cloudy copper body, darker than expected. Aroma of heavy hops; pine, zesty, floral, and lightly soapy. Faint juicy oranges and bready malt backbone. Taste is quite spicy, lots of white pepper, earthy, dirty, herbal hoppage. Brash bitterness and a heavy toasted and caramel malt sweetness that helps balance. Bitter finish, thicker than expected body with lively carbonation. Not as "drinkable" as Iíd like a pale ale to be. Not awful but more of a "miss" than a "hit", thatís for sure.

DuffMan (7540) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 18, 2015
bottle, shared with Parksy. Hazy orange gold, very lively off white head. Soapy/powdery hop character, sweet caramel malts, bitter finish. Just ok.

kjc51478 (440) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - MAR 20, 2015
12 oz bottle. Appearance is clear amber color with medium, off-white head. Aroma is citrus, lots of floral and some spice. Taste is well balanced with even bitter and sweetness--notes of citrus, toast, and floral. Palate is medium-bodied, very smooth texture, and a dry finish. One of the better APAs out there.

Pine forward, with citrus hops, caramel, apples and light toasted grains. Overall somewhat mild but nice flavors. Moderate hop bitterness. Carbonation and body fit nicely.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 2, 2014
I have no access to this site as I write this and the labeling gives no indication of what type of ale this is. Fair enough. It pours an amber/orange body with some brown tones topped by a creamy eggshell head. The aroma that eventually seeps through the dense head has a caramel sweetness to it. Thereís a light earthiness and slight traces of zest, too. The flavor has the addition of toffee and a soft fruitiness, ending on a mildly bitter note. Not bad.

12 oz bottle pours amber with a off white head. Aroma of citrus, malts and pine. Taste is malts and citrus.

patrick767 (3718) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 17, 2014
bottle - This brew pours up a huge off-white head. Itís massively over-carbonated and smells like it. Thereís also a trace of indistinct malt and some off smelling funk. Not good. The flavor is bitter but not in a good way. Medium bodied. Bandaid character. The ample hops taste okay and surprisingly at this point itís not undrinkable, but it canít overcome distasteful signs of infection.

nuplastikk (4917) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 17, 2014
12oz bottle. Thick orange-gold body, big off-white head. Mild peach, melon in the aroma. Has a hint of overcarbonation, maybe inching into infection...something Iíve experienced with this breweries bottles before. Almost has a dry brett finish. Not outright bad, just not that impressive either. Chewy, messy, undefined malts. I have little tolerance for breweries who sell infected beers, and the overall reflects this.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
[Bottle] Pours a hazy orange color with a small cap of off-white head. Sweet malts and floral hops come out in the aroma. Caramel malts, light fruits, citrus, lemongrass and sweet honey in the taste. Definitely a bit too sweet for my liking. Not even sure what style this beer is supposed to be.
