12oz bottle acquired in trade with CaptainCougar (thanks!). Poured a medium and lightly hazy orangish color with a large sized off white head. Heavy grainy aroma with some citrus and toasted caramel. Tastes of the same. Lively and over carbonated body.

Not sure why many reviews are calling this an IPA when the brewer makes both, although the labels are the same except for the bottom name. Pours a medium hazy oak color with a small head with small bubbles. Aroma is more English like with the english hops and caramel malts. Not too sweet and very drinkable. Reminds me obviiously of Sand Creeks English Special beer.

Very underwhelming for the type, but actually a decent beer and very sessionable. just not an APA -- more of a hoppy lager ;)

I actually found this to be a pleasant pale ale, but then I am prejudiced against the breed. This brew is far less aggressive than many of its kin, with the hops seated far back on the tongue and blended nicely with a bit of clover and wheat, with perhaps the mildest hint of citrus coming through on the finish.

12 oz bottle. Poured a clear orange color. Head was fizzy and dissipated quickly. Aroma was of husky grain, white bread, and dilute molasses with a hint of grassy hops. Crisp and dry on the tongue with mild hop bitterness. More effervescent than I had expected. Tasted predominantly of husky grain and cardboard with a citrus note. Not a particularly good IPA.

Thanks Dave. The beer pours to a lightly hazy copper colored body with a nice white head. The aroma is spruce laden oranges. The taste isn’t very good however. Simple pale malts and slight bittering hops. Perhaps some citrus. Moderate body.

Bottle. Slightly hazy body with lots of carbonation, but it still has a short-lived head. Weak aroma - honey biscuit and spruce essence. The flavor is kind of stale. Musty piney hops and dry papery pale malt. Lingering bitter finish. An underwhelming IPA for sure.

#1023 bottle purchased from Dobby’s Worldwide Liquor in Palatine Illinois. From the singles section. Copper golden somehwhat amber with a thin short lasting white head. Nose is mostly greains and yeast with just a bit of rusty copper that must be comming from the hops. Taste is rusty coppery malty with just a bit of citrus and some cream. Tasty and just about average for an APA. Interesting find. Id love to try more from this brewery.
