Good malt hop balance, mostly citrus and caramel notes. Low abv leads to non harsh finish

Slight peachy orange coloured body, with some lasting ring of head. Some dots of lace.Very slight hop aroma. Significant IBU and fruity, though somewhat aggressive palate.

22 ounce bottle. Cloudy amber orange color. Small bubbly white head disappears quickly. Sweet caramel malt nose with notes of citrus hops. Rips toasted malt flavor with more caramel and citrus hops. Nicely balanced with soft notes of peppery hops in the finish. Very drinkable with a creamy mouthfeel and brief dry finish.

ElGaucho (2208) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - AUG 11, 2013
Bomber courtesy of McBeer. Aroma of dark fruits and hops. Sweet. Muddy reddish amber with a thin off white head. Paeticalia. Much lighter body than I expected. Smooth with no bite whatsoever. 4.8% makes for a session beer that certainly doesn’t look like a session beer.

Had this on tap at the Whole Foods Fair Lakes Smokehouse restaurant island inside the store. Poured a mostly clear orange color with a medium sized tightly packed head. Aroma was some orange, citrus, malts. Some smoke with earthy hop notes, herbal notes on the tongue. Paired pretty well with my BBQ.

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - AUG 6, 2013
bottle. Amber with small head. Seems pretty similar to the standard Hatter, which isn’t a bad thing. Hops are quite crisp, which can only be explained by their super-freshness, right?

hotstuff (4092) - Indiana, USA - AUG 6, 2013
Rated on 6-12-2013 @ 800 Degree Three Fires (Fort Wayne, IN). This draft beer pours a small ivory head that has good retention, transparent body, one ring of lacing, minimal carbonation that is fast rising, and a golden hue. The Aromas are malt, citrus hops, sweet, fruity, coriander, and spicy. The Taste is bitter, malty, coriander, and citrus hops. The Palate is tingly and this is a medium bodied IPA. Overall, this beer is very quaffable, very hoppy tasting so this is what I term a "hophead" beer for those that enjoy drinking hoppy tasting beers.

shrubber85 (7608) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 5, 2013
Draft. Orange, melon, earthy malt and orange peel aroma. Golden yellow with moderate head. Lightly sweet orange malt and mildly bitter orange peel flavor. Nice, easy drinking beer.

jgb9348 (4738) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - AUG 4, 2013
Slightly hazy copper and amber coloured body with a nice bronze glow and a thin one centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of bright hops, fairly light though, with some malt, caramel, toffee and a hint of metal. Light-bodied; Nice flavourful hops with a good herbal and dry, airy kick and some very light malt notes throughout with hints of caramel and sweetness at the end. Aftertaste fairly simplistic with a bit of the dry herbal hops showing through, and some good malt notes, while light, add a good balance. Overall, a fairly good light IPA with a nice flavour profile which makes for an easy drinking in the summertime! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Liqour Outlet in Boonton, New Jersey on 06-July-2013 for US$4.31 sampled at home in Washington after just flying back from Detroit a few hours ago, on 04-August-2013.
