Sampled at Knoxville Brewers Jam 2010. Hazy orange in the glass with a frothy off-white head. Aroma of grass and citrus. The flavor found grass and a hoppy background. Medium body.

Every McNeills beer Iíve had over the past 6 or 7 years (all bottled) have been infected. They obviously want to sell infected beer so Iím going to rate infected beer. Nose is caramel, earthy hops, plastic & green apple. Flavor is bitter, plastic & astringent. Some toffee in the finish.

Probably not fresh. Pour is a murky brown amber. Aroma is a mixture of hay, yeast, pine, grassy wet leaf and a bit of caramel malt. Flavor is a resin, wet hay, bitter pine needle, leaf. Really not bad at all for being over 6 months old, I would love to try this really fresh on tap, I bet its pretty damn good

bottle: very malty, piney and dry. huge head, bready malts. not really all that bitter. Decent, but underattenuated and under hopped to be in style.

has a very soft feel to it with hop that has a mint like flavor. the malts are rich with a very mellow after taste to it.

The aroma is malty and yeasty with some hay like hops. The appearance is hazy amber with lots of particles. The taste is like the aroma with a touch of bread and a lightly bitter finish. The palate is thin but smooth. Overall this is drinkable but not outstanding by any standard.

Nicely done IPA. Tried this on draft at Canal St. in Reading. The beer pours a copper color with a generous, thick and sticky off-white head. The nose contains notes of spicy and floral hops, hints of citrus and a bready malt. The body is extremely smooth and drinkable. The flavors are well-balanced, with a spicy, bitter and dry hop flavor combined with a substantial bready and somewhat earthy malt profile. The finish is smooth also, containing some flowery and spicy hops.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - AUG 17, 2010
Bomber. Pours a hazy copper with small offwhite head. The aroma is juicy grapefruit with a bit of light caramel sweetness, a hint of toast, and some hoppy wafts of lemon, tangerine, and pine. The flavor is grapefruit and pine hops up front, with a little bit of alcohol burn (surprising at 5%). Toasty malt lies beneath and leads to a moderately bitter, somewhat earthy and nutty finish. Not bad.

A bomber (labelled "bottle-conditioned") into a snifter. Drank this one on the heels of Bear Republicís Racer 5. Dead Horse is clearly a different animal than the west Coast IPAs I usually enjoy. Itís darker, maltier, and has a greatly lessened hop presence. But I enjoyed it, really. The strength is manageable and the bottle only cost me four bucks. So long as you donít expect a hop bomb, you probably wonít be disappointed. As an aside, this particular brew was recommended in one of Michael Jacksonís books, which is probably the reason I bought it at all. UPDATED: 30 Minutes Later... The second half of the bottle, complete with all the sentiment and dander, was even tastier than the first, prompting me to re-rate by a couple tenths of a point. Thereís definitely a lingering bitterness this go-round, that is very enjoyable. Obviously Iím a beer tightwad (I went into the store for a bottle of Hoppiní Frog that turned out to be $15 dollars and reached for this one instead), but for four bones, this canít be beat. Drink this, dammit!
