3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft sample. Poured a clear copper color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Moderate earthy hop aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

12oz bottle - pours hazy amber with two fingers of beige head and faint lacing. Nose is citrus, mainly grapefruit, and honey. Malty backbone. Wet. Kind of light, body wise and taste wise. Warming esophagus. Probably would have been better a little colder. Cool label.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a cloudy copper-ish brown with a small white head. The aroma is somewhat hoppy with hints of citrus and a malty roast note. The taste is a solid medium bitterness with a hint of sweet. It has an almost medium body with a slightly creamy/sticky texture. This is a very good American pale ale that would rival some of your typical (and maybe even some of your favorite) IPAs. I would pick this up in a 6-pack and probably in the bar in bottle or on tap.

On tap at World Beer Fest in Cleveland, nothing special here, decent american pale ale with decent hops, nice alcohol percent though, kept it fresh.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark amber color with a medium haze and a small off-white head. A malt forward approach you usually only see with IPA’s not pale ales. The sweetness is first noticed then the bitterness, which is mild with citrus notes. There is nothing wrong with this beer just not my preferred interpretation of the style.

On tap during Ohio Brew Week 2013, taster from Red Brick. Clear amber color. Good thin off-white head. Decent lace. Some piney, orange-citrus aroma. Floral hops. Kind of soft, slightly lighter carbonation. More dry finish. Some nice caramel malt, and spicy hop flavor profile. Kind of spicy, moderate bitter taste, minimal sweet. OK IPA.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Vanilla hop aroma. From a bottle. Quite strong and rude to say the least, a little cloying at times. Not sure what too think of this, Yes, a little too cloying and alky strong fer me. Funny, it says 6% but I bet its more like 7 or more. Wew, don’t tread on me. Nasty at times. Finish is a little weirdly difficult and nagging. If you like beers that approach IPA in style and rudeness, give this a try. Mouth coating oily palate with barely any co2. This IPA hater is not impressed.

Pours a cloudy orange/brown with a medium sized off-white head. Aroma of citrus hops and caramel and toasted malts. Flavor of toasted malts with a good amount of citrus and earthy hops. Pretty good.
