COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A thirst-quenching American Pale Ale with a pleasurable hop aroma and taste. A chip off the same block as our Big Nose cypress knee wood spirit, Stump Knocker is a bit smaller, but he’s got the same hop headed attitude! Stump Knocker features late flavor and aroma hops, augmented with dry hopping and our unique hop filtering process as we transfer the fermented ale to conditioning tanks for carbonation and aging. These techniques produce a hop-centered ale with a crisp, balanced finish that will recharge your palate! Ingredients: American barley malts Centennial and Amarillo hops Production Targets: Original Gravity: 13 Brix IBUs: 35 Alcohol By Volume: 5.6%

Might have been a decent beer if it didn’t have a pervasive butter aroma and taste. But it did. drain pour.

Can from Publix. Hazy dark orange with an average white head. Light aroma. Some doughy malt and citrus. Well balanced. Sweet malts and bitter hop flavors play back and forth.

brokensail (16055) - Dublin, California, USA - DEC 30, 2015
On tap @ Swamp Head. Slightly hazed orange pour with a white head. Some bready malt along with a big dose of zesty orange, some lemon, and canned peaches. Nicely sweet without being too much, though it’s kind of still on the caramel side rather than more bready, like I’d prefer. Hints of dried pineapple on the finish.

FlandersNed (394) - , Indiana, USA - NOV 12, 2015
12oz can. Cloudy dark pumpkin color with a nice beige head. Dulled hops & a lightly sweet, earthy, old orange & wood flavor. Tasted more like an English pale ale than an Anerican one. Likely old, but it had no best by date. Medium+ body and medium- carbonation.

changeup45 (1729) - Mount Dora, Florida, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Draft at Maggie’s Attic. Rusty gold colored with a thin head on top that yields spots of lacing. The aroma is a bit floral with citrus hops and a toasted character. There’s a crispness to the flavors of toasted malt, caramel, and citrus hops. Easy-going and refreshing. Borderline thin. Pretty unexciting overall but a solid beer I’d have no problem going back to.

Strykzone (6722) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 24, 2015
Sampled at gabf. Clear golden amber. A sweeter fruited nose. Flavor too. Fruit and thistly hops. Decent.

Another good IPA - Lagunitas are still my favorite, but this isn't bad at all. I haven't had a bad IPA BUT I'VE HAD plenty that are mediocre. This is mediocre. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
