COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A crisp, drinkable IPA. The earthy deliciousness of Cascade and Simcoe hops, combined with upfront malt flavor, and balanced with a pirate’s sensibilities. Our Eye Patch Ale is a uniquely drinkable take on the American IPA – sweet caramel, citrusy flowers and swashbuckling adventure abound with every pint.

Brewed at Thomas Creek before the brewery opened.

This is a good IPA. Not the overwhelming finish of some and still good flavorful hops. Good color and the pour leaves a good head with good lacing. Enjoyable brew.

kerenmk (4015) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - JUL 23, 2016
On tap at Melt, Birmingham, AL, 3.5.16. Clear-to-hazy amber with a white head. Subtle tropical fruit aroma, light bitterness with a little onion peel but with a solid malty-toasted based in the mouth. Medium-to-full body, bitter with mild onion finish. Very good.

Aggiebob (671) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - APR 2, 2016
Bottle: Cloudy orange gold in color with a white head that maintains a thin covering and lace ring. It has a nice hoppy aroma and taste. An easy drinking ale.

Meh IPA. Murky orange colored. Aroma was malty and citrus. Taste was metallic with some chewy bitter hop bite. Better options.

ARH (1113) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2016
On tap, poured into a pint glass. The aroma is a dry floral and grassy grapefruit. It pours a clear copper, effervescent body with a clean, white fuzz that leaves moderate retention and good web lace. The taste is a medium bitter with just slightly less sweet; nearly balanced. The texture is oily and thin with a fuzzy carbonation and a medium light body. The up front flavor is bitter grapefruit and herb, with a background caramel note that emerges late. The finish is zippy and crisp with a grass and grapefruit flavor. The aftertaste is bread crust and grapefruit rind. It’s refreshing and dry; nothing too fancy, just a classic example of an IPA.

kingaugusta (210) - Georgia, USA - DEC 21, 2015
Pours murky blonde with a small white head. Nose is lacking and standard. flavor is very hop forward but fades quickly to a mild finish. Drinkable but unimpressive.

Blairgus (4046) - California, USA - NOV 18, 2015
18 nob 2015, tap. Murky orange. Nose is sweet, granola malt, grassy hops. Ned body and mildly fizzy. Pine hips, slightly sweet, rather bitter all the way through. Nice.

Jabah (369) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - NOV 13, 2015
I sampled the blood orange eye patch first, which I found to be better. Maybe the extra citrus balance it out more, but I wasn’t the biggest fan of the balance and quality of this one. Had an unfiltered, darker hazy yellow to orange appearance. Some tropical and ctirus flavors ,with the balance leaning towards the sweeter malts vs. featured hops. About average for the style.

pkbites (858) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 2, 2015
Tap @ the Atlanta Fish Market, Atlanta/Buckhead, Georgia. Golden pour W/weak head. No lacing on the glass. Nose is quite grainy. Rather astringent. but hoppy flavor with bitter aftertaste. But there are some weird flavors floating around in it that makes it strange. Not sure what they were trying to do here, but they failed. Just below mediocre.

Patrickctenchi (5870) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - AUG 25, 2015
Bottle: Cloudy amber with a creamy white head. Aroma has a little of that bready/spray paint thing.... Lively carbonation and tingle...orange and caramel malt taste. Definitely a lot of metal and odd notes in here..... Aaaaar,...perhaps it be gold I’m tastin’.......not very good, I’m afraid...worse than my pirate talk.

shrubber85 (10359) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 14, 2015
Bottle (courtesy of Cybercat). Metallic orange malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Golden yellow with giant white head. Sweet but strong tinny orange malt and orange peel flavor. Medium body. Pretty rough.
