Bottle. Aroma has nice sweetish hops, grapefruit with light pine, citrus, and caramel. Dash of passionfruit. Deep, dark, clear orange body with a soapy eggshell head. Light body and only light bitterness, touch of astringency with nice, clean pine notes. Touch of resin and a good deal of orange coming through. Caramel lingers the longest. By no means extreme, this is a solid, easy-drinking session.

blankboy (6433) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 16, 2007
Bottle courtesy of lewis13. Pours a hazy, very bubbly orange-amber with a large somewhat lasting creamy off-white head. Nice pine & citrus hops aroma along with sweet malt and some spices -- simple but pleasant. Slightly mild flavour follows the aroma: pine and citrus hops backed by sweet malt and a decent bitter finish. Alcohol’s completely hidden. Medium bodied. Nothing groundbreaking here, just simply a good IPA, I’d easily quaff several.

Bottle...thanks sliffy...thanks alot. Orange pour with a light tan head. Aroma of celery salt and some other vegital elements. Falvors of earthy hops and vegitable soup. Medium body, vegital throughout with a bitter finish.

sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle: Pours a hazy light copper color with an off white head. Aroma, urine and vegetables, earthy hops. Flavor, a definite vegetable flavor, kinda reminded me of celery, some pale and caramel malts, earthy hops on the very end.

Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clearer orangey amber with quite a few floaties. Normal sized leaves some lacing behind. Nose is piney with fruit(apples). Flavor continues on that theme and somewhat sweet. This is very fruit forward with a persistant but not overbearing hoppiness. Really good all in all, colour and taste. Thanks to lewis13 for this one.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2007
First time I’ve seen Mad Anthony in the Evansville area. Pours a chill hazed peach body with a small almond hued head. Some patchy lacing. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with an odd sour apple note. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is grassy hops with some pine and citrus rind. Subtle caramel sweetness. Passable, but pedestrian.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 25, 2007
This quality brew was a very nice surprise from these guys (and thanks to Cornfield for the sample!) It pours a very attractive shimmering copper with a light and lively white head floating above. The nose is equally inviting...citrus hopping and light caramel maltiness. The first tentative sip is a substantial caramel and toffee malt bottom supplying a moderate sweetness, quickly undercut by a big and bright bitter citrus hop bite...orange juice and light resins. There was a very hint of astringent harshness in the bitter finish, but only a slight detraction. Otherwise, thoroughly enjoyable...again and again.

I grabbed a shaker glass to pour this in, but after sniffing the open bottle I opted for a Chimay goblet. This poured a deep, copper color with solid streams of carbonation and a smallish, cream-colored head. Intriguing aromas held the strong presence of mint leaves along with a cold, basement-type aroma. Flavor finds a chocolaty start to a finish of mild, yet bitter hopcit. As mentioned several times below, it seems as if there is a good mix of English and American ingredients in there.

12oz btl. Hazy orangey and amber pour, dimiutive, quickly receding head, but steady carbonation flowing through the body. Earthy aromas lead the parade - teeming with what seems to be a blend of English and American hops, or it could just be a lack of good aromatics. Tastes English in style, dull however, in aroma and taste. Flavors of oranges, light hop spice, mushrooms and stale malts. Palate seemed watered down. Finish is short-lived and plain. Overall just a little better than average, I am not much of a fan of this one. I beleive this bottle could have been much less than fresh, but without a date on the bottle, I can only wonder if it was freshness, or just a beer I didn’t care for. Will have to retry at a later date.
