Bottle shared thanks to Dmac. Pours out a moderate amber color with a moderate white head. Aroma is of some grainy malts...no hops. Taste is of bready malts, light caramel and maybe some grassy hop? Drainpoured by Dmac..

The aroma was fruity sweet with a lot of booze. The flavor had a crisp bread and yeast feel with a bit of bitter at the back. Nice clean and dry finish, quite drinkable. Nice for the hot months

22 oz Bottle. Pours amber golden in color with a pure white creamy head. The aroma is very grassy with a touch of citrus. Flavor is very hoppy with a coppery note to the finish.

22 oz bomber. Pours a deep orange caramel amber with a large foamy light cream colored head. Aroma of V-8 vegetable juice, barley, sour notes and faint floral hops. Taste of vegetables, barley, acidic notes and sourness. I agree with blankboy that this one is infected. Could barely touch this one. Drain pour.

blankboy (6226) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2011
Bottle [22oz]. Pours a hazy orange-amber with an average size lasting off-white head. Mild aroma of vegetal notes, light earthy hops, citrus, caramel malt and plastic -- mildly infected? Flavour’s the same: Vegetal, sour and plastic-ey, also somewhat astringent in the finish, simply not pleasurable to drink. Average bodied. Not good enough to finish drinking, a drainpour for me.

Tmoney99 (10985) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUN 5, 2011
Bottle. Poured clear copper color with a large frothy off-white head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy earthy hop and vegetables aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Moderate to heavy bittersweet flavor with a moderate to heavy bittersweet finish of medium duration. Interesting brew.

Nice large fluffy off-white head of varying sized bubbles. Mild hoppy and bitter aroma with some oranges, light toasted malts and a bit of spice. Color ia a dark orangish brown. Mellow and very smooth flavor. Incredibly easy drinking brew that is great for a hot summer day. Mild malts and a tad of sweetness along with a bit of floral hops. Hops are pretty minimal though. Finishes a bit malty with some dry lingering bitterness. A pretty good IPA.

Nice IPA, good hop presence, but not overwhelming, which is a good thing. Would have this again.

Apparently I enjoyed this one a lot more than some other raters here--on cask at the brewpub. Very rich, creamy beer with a nice range of grapefruit and grass hops. Very good.

Fairly sweet and lightly cheesy aroma, with some yeast present too. Light brown pour with a nice head. The unexcitingly named Dead Horse - why beat a dead horse? What are they referring to? - the oddly named DH is an amber-like IPA with some odd flavor notes: ginger, wheat, marmalade. It is moderately sharp, with a touch of honey. This is definitely not a hop bomb, and I can see from looking at the other review that I was not the only one scratching my head over how this got into the IPA category. Still, it is a pretty interesting ale, even if it is a horse of a different color.
