COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dead Kettle has a nice hoppy nose with them exploding on the palate. Very refreshing for the hop heads. It’s Dead Kettle, because during the first handfull of brews, the kettle would die. So John made due and stumbled onto this. A happy accident. We also got a new guy to fix the burner unit. Oh, dry hops really help.

Pours dark golden with a thick beige head and a toffee aroma. There is a hearty pale malt flavor with balancing citrus bitterness. Refreshing.

This beer has a nice citrus smell to start it off, and a little bitter bit. This beer has a citrus taste and a nice IPA bitter after taste.

ibrubeer (206) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - APR 25, 2015
Draft @ DTW. Nice hoppy aroma. Dark golden color, with not much head or lacing. Slightly earthy bitterness, but pleasant. Med bodied. Overall, a pretty drinkable IPA.

tectactoe (3122) - Michigan, USA - APR 15, 2015
Tap: Deep amber-copper body with a huge yeasty haze throughout. Large, big-bubbled, foamy eggshell cap. Aroma hits with spicy hops up front. Peppery, floral, a bit ashy, undertones of grapefruit rind & citrus peel. Strong toasted bread & caramel malts linger in the background. Somewhat monotone. Flavor has a big white pepper & herbaceous bitterness that stings with each sip. Toned down citrus notes with a heavier accent on the leafy, grassiness. Still a touch of grapefruit pith in there, though. More caramel malt sweetness & a bit of residual sugar in the finish. Kind of has that "old" feel to it. Thick bodied, at least given the style & ABV. Decent at best.

Huhzubendah (3063) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 1, 2014
Fresh bottle brought back from the source by Adam. Thanks mang! The beer is copper with a substantial tan head. the aroma brings a lot of malt, light hop character, a touch of pine. Unadventurous and inconsequential on the palate. Mild hop presence, caramel / biscuit malt character, finishing dry. Nothing wrong here, but indistinguishable and boring. Light to medium in body with appropriate carbonation. Meh...

jgb9348 (5121) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Deep dark copper and orange coloured body with a cloudy, very opaque look and a thick, three centimetre tall tan head. Aroma of earthy and floral hops, some pungent malt notes, a little bit of yeast and a solid fruit profile. Medium-bodied; Chewy malty flavour at first with earth and nuts noticeable, but a large and rather herbal hop taste rounds out the flavour. Aftertaste shows a subtle blend of sweetness from fruits and a drying hop character. Overall, a nice IPA that shows more of a non-traditional flair with more malt and sweetness than most others and especially the look - much more cloudy than most! I sampled this 65 cL bottle purchased from Merchant’s in Dearborn, Michigan on 02-August-2013 for US$5.99 sampled at home in Washington on 15-March-2014.
