Reddish orange. Slightly sour aroma. Small hops. Mix of sweet and bland bitter hops on the taste. Wet finish. Not too bad for a new brewery.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Can thanks to Cavi. Pours a deep, clear copper with nice beige head. Aroma is caramel forward, some grapefruit. Flavor of some caramel, fruit, grapefruit, pine bitter, a faint sweetness. Mouth feel is medium body with medium-high carbonation. Overall, I thought this was a tasty IPA......

From a can at SBR. Tasted 7/11/09. Pours from a can, lasting white head, over a rather dark (SRM15-17) body....nose is primarily mild grapefruit, bit of pine....taste initially slightly sweet malts, toffee, then mild hop bittering....mouth feel is medium. This is rather sweet overall.

2.1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear amber pour with a finger and a half off-white head that has decent retention and soapy lace. Very little aroma coming from this one, definitely should be more hop aroma if you want to stay true to style. Flavor starts off sweet and then gradually shifts to bitter. Decent. Medium body with low alcohol and moderate carbonation. Just too many high quality brews in my area for this to be considered a serious offer.

Can. Pours clear amber with an average, frothy, white head, somewhat lasting with good lacing. Aroma is average malt (hay, cereal), average hop (grass, pine), average yeast (earth) with notes of peach and pear. Medium bodied, sticky texture, average carbonation, and a bitter finish. Long duration, light sweetness, moderate acidity and bitterness.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Absolute turd of a beer, Dark red color, stinky nose. Flavor is mindblowingly terrible. Barely drinkable, in fact, not drinkable.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: MAY 23, 2011 Re-rate. Not much aroma to speak of. A bit of hops, but also stings the nostrils. Flavor doesn’t have much punch. Very easy to drink, but not my style.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can. Great appearance, with a ruby color and a large, creamy tan foam. Nose reeks of diacetyl. Flavor is the same.

12oz can. Nice dark orange-red color. Smell is caramel, butter, more butter, caramel, diacetyl? The taste has a hoppy bitterness but it doesn’t help. I wanted to like this beer because it is local but it was just average. i will say the alcohol was well hidden. This was like a fourth-rate Dale’s.
