Aroma of pine and citrus hops, very light. Semi metallic finish on the flavor, mostly pine and faint citrus, light and green, not great. Rusty (1547) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Bottle courtesy of kkearn.
Pours a reddish copper color with a large tan head. Aroma is caramel, grass, hops, malt. Flavor is bitter harsh resiny hops, caramel, lots of spices and herbs and a bit astringent. Interesting hop combination gives this a little different bitterness than I’m used to with IPA’s. jason (1834) - Easton, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 4, 2009
Sample at Festival. Light pale body. Aroma is light and grassy. Flavor is caramel, light grass and a low hoppy-ness to it. unclemike (3115) - Ft. Riley, Kansas, USA - JUL 10, 2009
tap at brewpub Medium hoppy nose not overly aromatic with medium malt sweetness contribution. Poured a clear copper color with a small, off white head that left sparse lacing on the glass. Taste is grainy, with some citrus and floral hops. Not a ton of hops, more like a APA, but certainly a very drinakable selection.

22oz bottle, from Wegman’s (Williamsport, PA). Pours brownish amber, topped with a big tan head. Aroma of overripe fruit and herbs initially, with earthy hops gradually building but never becoming dominant. Flavor begins with caramel which gives way to medicinal herbs, earth, and grapefruity hops. Some hop resin sticks to the palate but fades rather quickly. Not bad, but I enjoyed Bavarian Barbarian’s other bottles offerings more.

Sticky, dry finish. hopdog (12451) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 26, 2008
On tap at the Bavarian Barbarian brewery. Poured a medium copper/amber color with a huge sized off white head. Aromas of pine, citrus, somewhat floral, and caramel. Tastes of citrus, pine, and caramel. I like my IPAs to be a little more bitter in the finish.
