12 oz bottle poured at my grandparent’s place in Carlisle, PA. Pours an amber color with a thin white head that dies quickly. Smells like malt or hops. Taste is light hops with a malty finish. Drinkable.

Just ok. A little thick with a malt after v taste. Metal flavor. An after taste that sticks around.

Tasty amber ale that is slightly sweet and slightly spicy. Well done, but nothing there that makes me stand up and say wow. Solid.

it has a fuller body in gravity, flavor and body. good malt and rye combination makes it satisfying to me and that is always a plus. the flavors are busy and beyond moderate so this is a good beer.

Nice light summer beer. Pours a pretty reddish Amber with a thin head. Not a lot of aroma, mostly malt and caramel. The taste is malty sweet with a nice bitter balance. A bit thin but overall, decent.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from State Line, 3/20/15
Aroma: The nose is grainy malts, heavy spice/rye, toffee, and some light hop notes
Appearance: It pours a clear orange color with a thick, frothy beige head and heavy lace
Flavor: Taste-wise, it is strongly spiced, light sweet, with a pronounced bitterness
Palate: The body is medium, leaning light, fairly easy drinking, with an average-plus carbonation
I wasn’t totally in to this one. Something about it just doesn’t quite work. The combo of the rye/spice with the poorly played bitterness just feels like a miss overall.

Great hoppy IPA and buggy from the Lanc. Good brewery and nice kick in the pants.

Pretty pour but harsh taste! Love the amber pour w/ a retaining tan head that leaves very good lacing. The aroma has a fair amount of malt & hop. The taste is strictly bitterness w/ out anything else to balance it which makes it a bit rough on the palate. Not very good!

10/30/2014. On tap at the brewery. Dark amber with a white head. Malt, caramel, bitter hops. Good easy to drink beer without much complexity.
