12oz bottle thanks to kmweaver for this extra. pours amber with creamy white head. nose is doughy malt and some citrus and peppery hop notes. flavor is malty at times almost harsh, lacks much of a hop presence otherthan a crisp finish. just decent stuff.

mattmc1973 (477) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - MAY 26, 2008
12 oz bottle, pours deep amber with beige foamy head, which mostly dissipated and left mild lacing. Aroma of malt and hops, similar to Arrogant Bastard, but milder. Taste of bitter hops, mouthfeel a bit watery, but smooth. Is a decent pale ale, but not as great as I would have expected, since I’m a fan of Arrogant Bastard/Double Bastard. Just OK.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - JUN 6, 2008
A nice looking copper red beer with a small head. The aroma is a mild hoppiness, with floral and spicy notes. The flavor is mostly malt with a bit of hop bitterness. A bit thin in the mouthfeel. Not offensive in any way, but not intense in any way. I’m a much bigger fan of the IPA, ruination, or arrogant/double bastard.

Sparky (2243) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - JUL 4, 2008
Tap. Pours a deep, clear amber with minimal cream head. Mild aroma of hops, grass, malt and some spice. Tastes much like it smells with a mildly bitter finish. Light to medium prickly mouth feel. An ok Pale.

Magjayran (1379) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - SEP 18, 2008
Nothing wrong with this one, it’s just a little too simple for my taste. A bit of peach and apple combine with an ever so slight hop bitterness that really isn’t very bitter at all. If that makes sense.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - SEP 19, 2008
4th NC rating in a row. What did this stuff just become available here? Clear amber pour, white head and spotty lace. Malty aroma. Light bodied. Bready flavor with light hop notes

Boutip (4818) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - SEP 22, 2008
Bottle: Poured a deep hazy orangey color ale with an average foamy head with average retention and some lacing. Aroma consists of Cascade hops with some caramel malt also discernable. Taste is a mix between some caramel malt with some dominating Cascade hops which provide a citrusy and bitter taste. Full body with some average carbonation. Good but drinkability good have been better – too full too be a session beer and too light in terms of hops to be truly interesting.
