Can... Pours clear and light-amber with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma reveals spicy, citrusy hops uplifted by honey and cookie malts. Full-bodied and chewy with tingly carbonation. Flavor-wise, the malt is the star of the show. Honey malt sweetness enhances citrusy, rindy bitterness. Finishes bittersweet. Can courtesy of biggsbowler!

May have been ruined by chilled glass. Waited for it to warm up. Seemed a bit thin, but true to the style. Tis ok

16 ounce can thanks to Mike. Slight lemon aroma and taste over a yellow pour. Different for sure.

tap at Detroit Metro Airport...slight hop aroma is followed by a thin bodied watery brew which would be OK as a PA, but this is not an IPA. Fortunately, I was really thirsty so this stuff went down easy and fast, but I wouldnít waste my time again on this lawn mower beer.

Dogbrick (8803) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 21, 2014
This beer pours a clear copper-gold color with a medium bone white head that recedes steadily. Strings of lacing on the glass. Aroma of hops, fruit and sweet malt. Medium-bodied with flavors of earthy hops, roast malt and pine. The finish is moderately bitter with a piney hops aftertaste. Decent overall.

Draft. Poured a clear golden color with an average frothy white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy hop and earthy malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. My expectations where met.

Catching up ratings......... On tap at Detroit airport. Pours a mildly hazy golden color with a medium white head. Aroma of resin, floral, and pine. Taste was piney and with citrus bitterness. Wasnít my favorite, but my pour kicked their keg and they didnít have another so Iím not sure if a fresh would have been better.

can. pours cloudy very pale yellow with a low white cap showing very little retention and lacing. spicy lemon, candied lemon, booze, grapefruit, piney, some tropical notes, pale slightly crackery yet doughy maltiness, overshadowed by strong sulfuric notes, hint of diacetyl too, nice minerality. light carbonation, light to medium body - oily, assertive yet balanced citrusy-piney finish. seems like a decent crafted brew, aside from strong sulfur aroma.
