Pailhead (6403) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - AUG 28, 2005
Bottle: Courtesy of MI2CA via trade. Aroma is rather citrusy with some grapefruit hops and a touch of pine. Pours a hazy amber with a lot of sediment. Small off-white head fades quickly to a ring. Slight lacing. Quick sweet citrus and a hint of caramel flavor up front is almost instantly dominated by a huge hop assault in the finish. Mostly pine with some light grapefruit. Hops linger in the aftertaste for some time. Decent IPA, but without much malt balalnce, its a tad one-dimensional

hotstuff (4864) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - MAR 13, 2006
Bottle. Small off-white head that mostly diminished with minimal lacing, transparent, carbonated, and an orange hue. The nose was very hoppy, piney, some light malt notes, and some grapefruit. The flavor was some caramel, grapefruit, and very hoppy, piney tasting. Tingly, sticky mouthfeel. Medium body. Lots of hops in this one for those that consider themselves to be a "hophead".

hopscotch (10600) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Bottle... Hazy amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Earthy nose with gobs of caramel/crystal malt, light pine and English or Willamette hops? Leans on the bitter side of balance, but has a solid malt backbone. Black tea and lemon/orange peel notes. Medium to full-bodied and milky with understated carbonation. Lightly bitter, balanced finish. Nice English style IPA! Thanks to MI2CA for providing this bottle!

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.

merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2007
First time Ive 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.

DietPepsican (1586) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - FEB 6, 2008
Thanks to bdigi66 for sending this my way. POurs a slightly hazed amber with a thick and creamy white head. Aroma of citrus and hops. Flavor in piney hops, citrus, floral hops, bread, and caramel malts. Decently carbonated but a bit too creamy than I prefer for an IPA. Slightly bitter, not as hoppy as the nose suggests. Interesting beer, thanks bdigi!

Thanks for the bottle, dansting. The body is dark amber. The aroma is classic grapefruit and toast. There is also some peanut character. The taste has some peanut shells and grapefruit. A nice finish of toasted bread. A good IPA.
