Bottle @ home. Clear, burnt orange appearance with a white head that disappears in no time. Medicinal, herbal hoppy, horrible aroma. Toasty malty, herbal hoppy, horrible macro flavor. One of the worst beers I’ve ever had and definitely the worst IPA I’ve ever had.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - SEP 20, 2013
Bottled 14/09/13. A brown beer with a grey head. A malty beer with brown fruits. A fusty edge. Sweet and low hopped. It does want it sets out to do quite well and there’s nothing nasty but it is a bit shallow.

Quack-Duck (8159) - Down South, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013

DocLock (8054) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Bottle from Capone’s. Pours straw colored with 0f-white minimal head. Nose is malt, spicy hops. Tastes malty, ESB-ish, with earthy malt notes, some hops, and not a lot of complexity. Comes off like a slightly hoppier and less malty Newcastle brown.
