Bottle at the Cleveland Indians game - Pours cloudy red with a small head. Has a piney hop flavor to it but I wouldnít refer to it as a hop bomb. Would be a fairly balanced beer except the finish was slightly watery.

Bottle. Pours a slightly hazy amber color with a moderate off-white head on it and a little bit of floaties in there. Nose has a little bit of hoppy bitterness to it, but not a lot of substance. Taste is balanced in that itís not bitter nor sweet, but there isnít a lot of flavor to it.

Light malt but more right flavor than most pale ales. I can taste but can't identify at least two different malt flavors.

Orange red pour with no head. Aroma of raisins. Tastes a bit like raisins with a bitter bite. No hops here. I guess it's old.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a very large sized head of foamy finely sized off-white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a very softly carbonated slightly hazy light brown colored body and a poor lacing. The strong aroma was malty and mild hop. The semi-thick mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thick flavor contained notes of mild hops and malt. A decent one that I would consider drinking again.

3.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Copper colored brew with low carbonation topped with a very low off-white head that sits nicely. Aroma comes on stronger as this beer warms up. Very low hop presence to start with a light earthy and citrus nose combo. A light dark crystal nose comes in later. Flavor is very well balanced. light citrus noes with some modest earthiness in the middle. Finishes with a light bitterness and some rye spicy notes. Carbonation has a sharp feel to it and the body is moderate in density. Overall a brew I liked quite a bit. Definitely one I would want on a consistent basis if it was close to me as its a pretty well balanced pale ale.

12 ounce. Malty and bit fruity IPA. Not a hop bomber by any means. Drinkable for what folks try to do with this type fo IPA. But a tad too sweet.

A good pale ale that pours an amber color with spicy malt aroma. Taste is very sweet and the hops could be more to be a true hop bomb.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours a clear dark copper body with a small foamy off-white head that left some light lacing. The nose is showing a good bit of crystal malt which is a distinct turn off for me personally. Some light English hops make it past, but not a whole lot. The flavor shows off lots of crystal malt as well making it overly sweet and dulling the hop favors. Canít say that I get a whole lot of rye from this either, perhaps from the crystal malt as well. A touch sticky on the mouthfeel due to the risidual sweetness. Soft fizzy and prickly carbonation. I will never understand why crystal malt has a place in APAs or IPAs.
