Absolutely wonderful. Tastes much like an IPA with a nice amount of hops. Pours nicely with a half inch white head and the beer itself is darker (think Sam Adams Boston Lager). Taste and palate is beautiful.

A damn good APA. Dark golden pour with a decent white head. Aroma is piney, hoppy, very floral. Flavor is much the same with hops coming out throughout with a good malt backbone holding it’s end up. I took home a growler. Hopefully this beer gets put into regular rotation there as I enjoyed it immensely. Meal tip: Try this beer with some of McKenzie’s salsa and chips. Excellent stuff.

No aroma to speak of but the flavor swoed up with a nice citrus twist. Hoppy as well but. Middle of the road.

obxdude10 (1971) - Limerick, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 16, 2002
Very crisp, very clean, smooth pale ale, a little lighter on the color side as it was a bright copper color, but nicely hopped, spicey aftertaste, very enjoyable APA

desurfer (1190) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - OCT 7, 2005
Cloudy amber body, no head. Finally a beer from this place I can get into! Big, hoppy flavor, with all the elements of citrus, pine, and loads of floweryness. I could drink this all night.

Orange/ Yellow in color with small head. Nice hoppy aroma. The taste was of floral hops. The finish was fruity. Really good beer.

On tap at McKenzie’s. Poured a medium to deep amber color with a smaller sized off white head. Mainly a floral aroma. Tastes of flowers, citrus, with a light malt balance. Light bitter finish. Some lacing left on the glass.

sloth (2401) - Ceciltucky, Co., Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2003
Medium size offwhite head, good lasting lace. Clear gold/copper color, good looking brew. Good spicey hop nose. Medium body, nice mouthfeel. Plenty of hop flavors with a good malt backing. Hops are resiny, moreso as it warms up. Finish is dry with a clean hop flavor. Good drinkin brew! Nice pub also.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 15, 2005
Now called Wicked Will’s. Dark straw pour with medium head. Hoppy aroma, coupled with some floral spices and light fruit. Tastes hoppy, with a firm malt presence, and a good balance.
Earlier Rating: 3/30/2004 Total Score: 3.9
A nice pale ale. Very hoppy, with a deep yellow color, and aromas of hops, citrus, and slight honey. Finishes smooth and sweeter than the first taste. Nice.

UPDATED: JUN 7, 2006 On draft at McKenzie II. Poured a dark copper. Very nice aroma; piney with lots of fruit, even some banana esters. Flavor was a solid APA. Solid malt backbone to this one. Not all that hoppy. What is it with brewpubs not being able to properly carbonate their beer? Seriously, I think every brewpub I’ve ever been to needs a lesson on carbonation and how important a beer’s appearance is...
