COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We conceived this beer to entice the sinner and saint in each of us, following one simple rule: you can never have too much of a good thing. So we took mountains of Crystal, Wheat, and Munich malts and paired them with huge handfuls of Cascade and Tradition hops for an irresistibly wicked beer that’s at once temptingly sweet and scandalously bitter, with a full body and deep red color. Go on, treat yourself a little and ask for the happy ending.

Elwood (3347) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - AUG 31, 2009
Serving: Draft. Appearance: Hazy orange with a foamy, white head. Decent retention and great lacing. Aroma: Slight pine notes, a little biscuit. Fairly straight forward. Taste: Light biscuit notes from the malt side, Herbal, grass, and pine notes from the hops. Nice back bitterness. Palate: Medium carbonation with a medium-light, dry mouthfeel. Overall: This one seemed to have some alt characteristics to me. Still, a pretty decent brew. Rebuy: If I happen to stop by the brewery I wouldn’t mind having another one of these.

2.9
Butters (4176) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2008
Near opaque dark orange with some light tan head. Not balanced at all. Sweet caramel malt and then just a single hop bitterness. But I don’t really care for this style.

3.3
aracauna (3680) - Georgia, USA - JUL 10, 2008
This isn’t an IPA, but then the brewer does’t call it one. It should probably be listsed as American pale ale like it’t described in the description. Slighty toasted bread malt is balanced by a nice bitterness, but the aroma is a bit weak.

beerguy101 (5364) - Newark, California, USA - JUN 3, 2008
This APA pours a light gold color from the tap at the brewpub. Small to medium sized white foamy head. The aroma is slightly bready some malt and hops. A medium to light bodied American Pale Ale. The malts are caramel and sweet. The hops are slightly citrusy. More of a mild English Pale Ale. Nice finish, but nowhere bitter enough for an APA, let alone an IPA. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.
