Full bodied, orange hued ale. A variety of toasted and caramel malts create a nice backdrop to the aggressive citrus and floral hop notes. Brewed with three different kinds of hops, this IPA is balanced by the oats added to the mash. The oats not only add an unexpected sweetness, but also a heavier mouthfeel.

Single bottle from Binnyís Build-a-Six rack. Nice copper IPA color with a thick, slightly orange-ish head. Slightly citrus and pine hop smell. Taste is up front with hop bitterness.After a thousand IPAs, it gets hard to say what makes one different from the other, but this does have a slightly larger malt backing, even if it does support a pretty standard hop balance. But as a year-round beer, you canít expect too many non-repeatable variations.

12 ounce bottle from Badger Spirits in Beloit, WI (July 2016), served slightly above fridge temp from a Carlyle pint glass. Lovely pour - translucent dark amber/copper with a slow-diminishing choppy head, much lacing...resinous aroma initially, giving way to some mango/apricot pitted fruit notes, some caramel...on the tongue itís rather syrupy in texture, caramel-sweet, a bit of toasty malt underpinning the thing, bitterness fairly light, though growing somewhat towards the finish, which is dry and lightly cardboard-accented. Fairly full-bodied, a bit sticky actually. Meh, itís drinkable enough but kind of a mess overall. Not sure Iíve had a really good beer from this brewery yet; I do like their old-school labels though, have to give them some credit for that.

Iím surprised at the rating so far for this one, because I donít think itís quite that bad. Itís certainly not a particularly good beer, but itís not a bad one either. As an IPA it misses the mark of the style, but itís still quite drinkable. Lots of caramel malty sweetness, with a tiny hint of citrus hops and mild bitterness. I do get a tiny hint of that metallic taste others have noted also. I wouldnít buy it again, but itís not terrible.

Golden pour with a white head. It has a herbal hop aroma. The taste is bitter with lively carbonation and faint touch of butterscotch.

Carlisle (539) - Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2016
Can (16 oz). Orange-Amber color. Citrus hop aroma. Orange citrus with grapefruit notes upfront followed by malt and some pine resin in the finish. Creamier mouthfeel than many IPAs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

16 oz. can. Pours golden orange with a frothy white head that settles to thin film and sticky lacing. Aroma is bitter grassy with faint line lemon rind. Taste is bitter grassy lemon lime zest. Palate is thin medium and finishes off putting.

GranvilleTim (1854) - Granville, Illinois, USA - FEB 17, 2015
Orange-red pour with a light beige head. Aroma is pine hops. Taste is a weaker hop flavor that seems to be more of a pale ale to me. More malty than hops. OK lacing.
