Bebum (337) - - DEC 21, 2014
Clear amber, tall but loose knit and quickly dissipating head. Slightly earthy nose. Medium body, full flavored, low carbonation and acidity which results in a flat mouthfeel, long aftertaste. Very bitter, overpowering the abundant malt background, resulting in a dry beer with a bitter finish. Hoppy, grapefruity, earthy, malty. Powerfully bitter, very nice drink if you are in the mood for that much bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

hfmejias (825) - Dover, Delaware, USA - DEC 20, 2014
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured cloudy, copper in color with an off white head and lots of lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty, lots of caramel notes combined with some citrus fruit notes. Taste is sweet and malty, mildly bitter towards the end. It sweetness makes itís very drinkable for an IPA.

airrick2003 (540) - Louisiana, USA - DEC 16, 2014
Appearance: pours with a medium but very dense beige head, the beer is a slightly hazy average gold color with an orange hue to it Aroma: kind of faint under the dense head, cream, hints of grass Taste: strong malt backbone, malt is a caramel roasted flavor, similar to dales pale ale, bitter finish Palate: average carbonation, medium to heavy mouthfeel, slightly bitter aftertaste Overall: this is a strong beer, very strong malt backbone, I feel like the malt leads this beer and the hops are there to counter it, the bitterness is there buts fangs are taken our by the strong maltiness ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
