Deep orange pour with a nose of mostly sweet malts. Taste is a malt forward hoppiness that is nicely smooth. Finish is where the hops hit with a lingering bitter finish. Decent enough.

PhatB420 (613) - Pittsfield, Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2012
12oz into an harpoon ipa glass. Pours a dark ale, ripe orange, medium brown, and dark carrot. Taste is very bitter, hoppy, floral and citrus upfront, still bitter, and slight malt and more bitter in the aftertaste. A fresh and distinct ipa here, seems more like a dark ale at times. Head eases in and then remains thin througout the brew. The bitterness stays on the tounge well after the drink is finished. this is a gentlemans ipa.

PorterPounder (5346) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 25, 2012
Orlando, FL - Whole Foods - 12 oz bottle. Dark copper pour, slight murkiness, nice off-white head that leaves a trace of lacing. Aroma has some butter scotch notes, traces of vanilla. Solid bitter flavor with some grapefruit citrus notes, some vanilla in the background, a touch of butterscotch. Thick enough mouthfeel. Decent.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 15, 2012
22 ounce bottle - $3.99 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Pours out a clouded, dark dirty copper body with an inch of off-white head leaving sticky laceworks on the descent.

Smell: Malt blend presenting notes of bread, toast, and a bit of caramel. Hops throwing off hints of citrus zest and reserved resins.

Taste: Bready, toasty maltiness with a scant sliver of caramel. There’s some sweetness, but not too much, really. Grapefruit and bitter orange hop flavors with a medium-plus bitterness. Small hint of earthy resins underneath. Bready yeastiness. Bittersweet finish with a bready flavor and touch of citrus enduring into the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation.

Overall: Decently drinkable, I thought it was OK. A beer that gets the job done.

bigguns22 (624) - Maryland, USA - JAN 24, 2012
Pour is amber and cloudy like unfiltered honey. Medium off white head that sticks to glass. Hoppy and a little bitter with a little malt at the end. The more I drink the more a floral, spruce, Pine note stands out and the flavors stay on your palate.
