On tap at Graydon’s Crossing. Mild hoppy nose, light funk from bad line or cleanser, raw grain. Cloudy dark amber with thin lacing head. Medium body with medium carbonation. Mild IPA-hoppy, with grassy notes. Mild bitter finish with smooth after. OK.

It pours a dark orange color with a rather nice fluffy head. There is considerable lacing on the side as the head disappears. There is a caramel aroma with scents of dried fruits and apricots. There is a taste of caramel and dried fruits with tinges of apricots. It is not as bitter as most IPA;s, but is pleasant on the way down.

On tap, probably one of the better IPA I’ve tasted. Darker pale thing like lighter iced tea. has smell if simple clear beer, quite fresh and not too hoppy on the nose. Quite flat. ild medicinal feel to this one. Easy going even tho there is that slight medicinal feel in ot. Yes, quite a bit of personality but not over the to and it never gets in yer face.

Vintage 2013, silver foil, 22oz bottle. Light brown, copper color. Creamy foam, light fluffy carbonation. Flavor is of toasted barley, caramel malt, grassy hops, earthy character. Smell of toasted grain. Light bodied. Finishes with a sharp hop bite. Nice session. (4108)

A very middle of the road ipa. Not overly bitter and not sweet. Has a darker tone to it but still feels light

cbfobes (2294) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JUN 22, 2014
On tap at Dexters, pours a clear dark bet with a thick white head and spotty lacing, aroma is slightly hoppy with a malt backbone showing through, flavor is light on the hops and pretty much all around, pretty meh.

demitriustown (1068) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bomber: Appearance is a lightly amber golden pour with a thick slightly off white head that lingers. Aroma is nice big cascade hops with a thick resin note, bright, floral, punchy, lightly grassy. Taste has got a nice hop note and a very subtle nutty malt slipping through that back. Overall, Good not great. Cheers!

Not a bad beer just a little more towards the pale ale side of the spectrum than the IPA side. Enjoyable nonetheless. I think they should bottle this is 6 pack format as I feel this would be an excellent gateway beer for non craft drinkers. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
