Dry hopped in the West Coast tradition with generous amounts of the best Cascade hops, this copper colored ale exhibits a spicy flavor, fruity aroma, and characteristic bitterness.

Bottle. Pours a hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head and a few floaties in it. Nose is quite light and has a little bit of hoppiness to it. Taste has a light bit of bitterness up front, but has a strong malt backbone to it. Not a lot to this beer, but it’s fairly drinkable.

Bottle. Pours a copper color with minimal head and sparse lacing. Aroma of citrus hops. Decently balanced. 2 steps above a Sierra Nevada but not anything extraordinary ----Hophaze out

slightly tart, and that seems to ruin the beer completely. Seems like an off bottle unfortunately.

12oz bottle from Keg Liquors in New Albany, IN. Pours a mostly clear, copper colored body with a finger-width, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is papery pines with some toasty, bready caramels. Some grapefruits and florals. Flavor is thinner caramels and slightly toasty, bready pale malts up front before a good amount of bitter, earthy pines come in. Some grapefruits and light floral notes before this finishes dry and bitter with some citrus and a light malt balance. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium-thin body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a slightly thin, but bitter pale ale. Well hopped with a light citrus flavor and a bit of a toasted, bready caramel. Eh.

12 oz bottle. Pours hazy to golden brown. Taste of slight fruit and hops. One of the better Oaken Barrel brews.

Patrickctenchi (3075) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - FEB 14, 2012
Poured amber and cloudy, barely any head. Aroma is strongly hopped, taste is bitter and spice, like a weak IPA...very wishy-washy blend to it...no date, maybe an old bottle. not good....cool label, though.

Hazy golden honey color with generous head and spider-web lacing. Taste begins and ends with piney hops; notes of malt and grass and citrus are there, but always behind the hops. Make it a one-taste wonder, don’t you think? But,....if you like American hops, you’ll like this a lot.
