A nice ale ipa combination. A little hoppy and malty. Has a nice bitter finish. Smells fruity ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle. Orange label. Reddish\orange pour, tan head. Aroma of butterscotch, caramel malt, and pine hops. Overly bitter, sharp hops, more butterscotch, some musty malts. Lots of pine flavors. Probably much better fresh. This one seems to have a slight infection. (3635)

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head. Nose is a little hoppy, but not overly defined. Taste isn’t too bitter - balanced, but nothing particularly noteworthy. Meh.

Beerathon (1540) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 29, 2012
Beautiful burnt orange with thin white head that does leave behind nice lacing. Hop nose is earthy. Would have like the flavor to be jucier.

Pours a golden amber red with white frothy head. This beer had not a great aroma and lacked the hop of a great ipa. Not impressed. Of course I had it right after a founders reds rye so.... Had bomber from holmes

Derek881 (1047) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 25, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 Poured from a regular bottle into a trumpet glass to drink. The beer had a very cloud amber/light-copper color with a modest foamy white head that had average retention, along with good lacing and cling. Its aroma had a good blend of citrus, grain, and pine hops, along with some caramel malt and some light yeast and floral notes, but overall was a touch muted. Its taste was pleasantly bitter with notable grainy and light citrus hops, paired with a lighter mix of sweet caramel malt and touches of sugar and candy. The palate was very fizzy and carbonated, with a thin but mouth-filling body, and was dry and intense.

Voodoo (425) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 30, 2012
Pours a hazy copper brown with a slight head. An earthy bitterness with the profile of an English IPA lacking in finishing hops but having a maltiness in the front which is just overtaken by the bitterness in the end. A very simple and bare bones IPA......and enjoyable.

radarsock (1116) - Massachusetts, USA - AUG 26, 2012
One of those IPAs: onions/vegetation on the forefront, met later with malt, limeade and tea leaves. Hops used are the kind I dislike arguably the most. Goes down easily. A good shitty movie sipper.
