COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Traditional Old English Style, well balanced-not over the top. We take extra time to bring out the full flavors of this brew.

22 oz. bottle, pours a hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma is over-malted, with residual sugars, caramel malts and some resin. Flavour is muted, with earthy notes, dirty yeasty notes, and a little hops. I wonder what the hell they were going for here. Very mixed up and jumbled. Not a disaster, but not good.

Bottle from Haggenís Grocery, Woodinville
Hazy amber color. Caramel aroma and flavor, rather dry, with earthy and tired hops. Is this old? Not good.

Bulk_Carrier (2227) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUN 4, 2014
I had this more than enough times to say something, well here goes. This has always been poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a decent hazy orange to brown color with a delicate half fingered white foamy head that did leave some stringy lacing here and there. The smell had some sweet English malts in front of the hops and honestly, the hops seemed extremely faded and somewhat dead. The taste was mainly sweet but it did show some delicate bitterness here and there. On the palate, it sat about a medium on the body with a decent sessionable quality about it. The carbonation seemed good for the style and for me. Overall, not a bad English IPA, but not a stellar one.

Slightly sweet, malt-dominated English_style IPA. Not enough malt complexity to justify lack of bittering and aroma.

Gription79 (2293) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - DEC 8, 2013
Had a bottle up in Alaska. Citrus, pine, astringent, harsh hop flavor, bitter herbal tea.

kramer (5063) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 25, 2013
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small foamy off-white head that faded to a wispy film. The nose is the best if the 3 beers from them Iíve had. Itís decently citrusy, but also a fair amount of caramel malt sweetness. The flavor is about the same. Thereís a decent amount of hops, but the sweetness from the malt dominates a bit too much, ruining what I look for in the style. Medium bodied and a bit clingy with fizzy soft carbonation. Best of the three Kassikís beers I bought, but itís pretty off the mark for my tastes.

On tap. Pours dark amber with white head. Aroma is of ripe apples, caramel malt and hints of hops. Body is medium and tangy. Citrusy, herbal hops dominate the palate with caramel malt and ripe fruit provide some balance. Long finish is greapfruity. Nice IPA.

Drank from bomber poured into tulip. Aroma - caramelized. Not all that happy or floral. Appearance - dark auburn. Frothy head. Taste - smooth but taste of amber is heavy. Palate - some bitterness. Almost like a weathers candy. Overall - not bad but not great. Decent IP but too much amber flavor.

Frank (2968) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 29, 2013
A bit malt centric for an IPA but clean and really tasty. Might call this more of an amber and I donít mean this as a bad thing. Another tasty IPA from Alaska--the other west coast.

Ratman197 (10094) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 7, 2013
Bomber poured a hazy reddish amber witha lasting creamy amber head. Aromas of carmel, brown sugar, earthiness and woody hops. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of carmel, earthiness and woody hops with a smooth moderatly bitter lingering earthy finish.
