COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Full bodied, orange hued ale. A variety of toasted and caramel malts create a nice backdrop to the aggressive citrus and floral hop notes.

Can. Pours amber brown with creamy off-white head. Nose is light but pleasant - mild fruitiness and just a bit of floral hops. Flavor is lightly sweet, bready maltiness followed by a good dose of lasting bitterness and some hop resin aftertaste. I think I see what MKE was going for here - a strong bitter beer - and it drinks like a strong pale ale or perhaps a burton ale, and would be quite good for an American strong ale but doesnít hold up against the style profile for most IPAs adopted by U.S. brewers at this moment.

March 6, 2014 - bottle at Iron Horse. Copper pour with nice head that lasted. Aroma and taste of piney hops and malt. Nicely balanced with clean finish.

Bottle pour copper. Nose dank hop and earthy malt. Some metallic. Taste also dank and earthy, some bitter early. Noir all that appetizing.

Poor showing... If your first homebrew tasted like this then that's cool. You have something to build on. But this no way...it has a nice head that sticks around... Aroma is bad taste is horrible ... Once u get past the first taste the secondary taste is almost acceptable with what appears to be slight citrus! But this is bad ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16oz can-rich tan-dk amber. A-resin, doughy-med malt. T-follows. Carbonation is a bit soft, still a nice drinking beer.

Can. Thanks to CanIHave4Beers! A rich copper pour is topped with a fluffy light tan head. Bright citrus and caramel are up front on the nose. There is also a little bit of dough. This tastes like sugared up grapefruit mixed with iced tea. There is a little bit of caramel in the strong black tea finish. A little too sweet and unbalanced for my tastes. Smooth mouthfeel for the ABV.

From a can.
The beer pours a hazy orangish gold with a good head and nice lacing on the glass.

The aroma is a little sweet with some grassy & citrusy hops.

The flavor is nice enough, sweeter and more malt forward than I usually like my IPAs to be. The bitterness balances this to a degree and itís got some nice spicy and fruity hop character.

Not really my style of IPA, good enough though... Iíve had worse from "cooler" breweries.

djroehler (290) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 16, 2013
Can. Pour is dark orange with giant foam head. Aroma is orange, lemon, sweet, toasted malt. Taste is pine and citrus hops, punch but not overly so, some resin, light toasted malt back.

Steasy66 (847) - Minnesota, USA - OCT 8, 2013
Pours with tons of head, IPS color. Almost no aroma. Disgustingly sweet with very little hop character. No date on the can, so add that to the list of failures.

12 oz. beer refrig. bottle carefully poured to a Czech-pils glass, but still produced an overly abundant amount of cream colored, meringue-like head foam on top of a hazed, orangy gold hued liquid, with a good deal of rising effervescence to the modest amount of beer that was exposed, and lasting, patchy lacing. The nose was lemony & grapefruity, some sweetness, and a touch of pine. The flavor was a decent earthy, rindy, and lingering hop bitterness, but was otherwise very sweet to the taste. Light bodied, with any good effervescence wasted on the head, as the carbonation seemed to flatten out, leaving the texture a little thin on the palate. Alcohol influence was negligible. The aroma was promising, but the appearance and taste were more in line with many homebrew/extract recipes that Iíve sampled.
