COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed as a medium India Pale Ale, this full-flavored moderately hopped beer has the strongest hop character of our ales. Made for hopheads and new beer aficionados. The grist composition is 94% Pale malt, with the remaining grain bill consisting of carastan malts. The finishing Mt. Hood hop addition in the whirlpool gives this beer a good hop character without becoming excessively bitter. The beer is fined instead of filtered so the hop character is not stripped away.

Draft in Indy. Reddish amber color with a small white head. Aroma of hops. Flavor was complex of citrus and hops with a well balanced bitter finish. Good brew.

Dogbrick (14287) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JAN 15, 2004
From a sampler at the Indy location: Pours a reddish-amber color with a medium light beige head. Thin lacing. The aroma is moderately hoppy with some citrus as well. The body is not too rich. The flavor is nicely hopped at first but it drops off dramatically by the end. The finish is decent, with a mixture of floral and citrusy hops. A little better than average overall.

BVery (11458) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 11, 2014
Tap at the Schaumburg IL location. Slightly hazy golden orange pour with a very small head. Juicy citrus aroma and taste. Not super rich or complex, but quite serviceable.

3.3
hopscotch (11409) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAY 4, 2008
(Ram Restaurant and Brewery, Schaumburg, IL) Draft... DLD’08... Clear golden ale with a large, creamy, off-white head. No retention, but nice lacework. Toffee and citrus notes dominate the aroma. Medium-bodied with a ridiculously dry mouthfeel and tingly carbonation. Finishes violently bitter and sucks all moisture from my mouth. Over-attenuated, for certain. Still, an aromatic, tasty brew.
