COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for our friend and patron Tad Eastman, whose Laughing Dragon Tie-Dye studio puts out our fabulous shirts-each one an individual work of art signed by Tad! Reddish Amber in color, this beer has a very bold Chinook hop character.

Had it on tap at the Livery in Benton Harbor Michigan. Pours a clear amber hue with a light white head. Great smooth amber ale, slightly hoppy.

Dry biscuit and cracker nose with lots of citrus hops. The taste is light to moderately sweet and lightly bitter with honey and bready malts, lots of citrus, bitter grapefruit and toffee.

AWISLguy (1423) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 6, 2011
On tap at the Livery. Pours reddish orange with no carbonation. Nice lacing. Aroma is sweet caramel and piney hops. Taste is some hops, some caramel. Alcohol very hidden; not sure of the style (APA?). Finishes medium length. Pretty good beer.

17thfloor (2434) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 13, 2009
On tap at the Livery 8.20.09. Pours a murky dull peach color with a small fine wispy white head. Soapy citrus aroma, light and delicate. Dull soapy taste with some bright citrus notes. Strange cedary finish, spicy rye is odds with.

michael-pollack (4960) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 4, 2009
Cask at TND (at 6.25%ABV): Aroma of hops, citrus, tropical fruit, and pine. Poured amber/light brown in color with a small, loose, off-white head that lasted throughout. Cloudy. Very slightly sparkling. Full of small particles throughout. Small lacing. Flavor is slightly sweet and light to medium bitter. Tastes of hops, pine, spruce, slight resin, and a hint of caramel malts. Light to medium body. Thin, watery, slightly dry texture. Cask carbonation. Thin, hoppy, watery finish. Absolutely not 8%ABV. Not red.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2009
On tap at the brewery. Murky orange brown with small white head. Stinky hops with spiciness and dry malt. Flavor citrus and banana with some grain and sweeter spice. Medium and active carbonation. Slightly strange but I can see what they were trying to do.

dmschefke (570) - Macomb, Michigan, USA - JUL 30, 2009
Pours a murky dark amber with a gold hue, thin white head, and slight lacing. Aroma of mild hops, slight wheat, mild malt, and yeast. Flavor is a bit earthy, mouthfeel is slightly slick, and finishes dry.

Rastacouere (6137) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 8, 2008
Objectively speaking: Strong American ale with a sharp hoppiness and more yeast than most.
I like: Charming straight resin smell translates into a broader flavour profile in mouth. A fair dose of yeastiness offers a sourdough hint. Beefy malts are chewy and thick, accentuated by the absence of filtration. Very, very toasty and that’s a trait I love. Both bitter and aromatic, the direct hop punch is effective and counterbalances the growing sweetness with agility.
I dislike: Certainly not very complex for an 8% strong ale. Not very nuanced hoppiness.

marcus (6788) - Sacramento, California, USA - SEP 23, 2008
On tap at the brewery. This hazy amber ale poured with a thin off-white head and a yeasty aroma. There is a hefty caramel malt flavor followed by a sour and bitter finish.

Draft @ the Livery. Pours a hazy, golden-brown color, tea-like; off-white head with fine-bubbled lacing. Brown sugar, earthy bitterness, and resiny citrus notes in the aroma; some fruit (apples) and sweetness. Medium mouthfeel: surprisingly light-bodied for 8%: tea, resiny citrus and earthiness, and apple-centered fruitiness; chewy, soft, very drinkable ASA with a nice perimeter of soft citrus bitterness; intricate malt core. Medium finish: earthy bitterness, toasty basic malts, and some lingering apples.
