Bottle. Poured an amber color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of spices, some herbalness, carmal, and fruits. DocLock (10970) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2014
Bottle from a PUB’R secret operative. Pours headless coppery with nose of sprucey hops, pine, vinyl, mild caramel. Tastes very sprucey, very unique, with caramel malt, hops, and a liquid band-aid flavor late. This one is a novel experiment, but not a good beer. This one blows worse than a new wife.

THOUGHTS: Wow. All spices and herbs. It smelled and tasted like a crazy Ricola. It actually reminded me of the recreations of ancient Scottish ales. Very interesting beer, but awful IPA. Slightly like a sahti, too.
TECHNICAL: Drank 3/3/2013. Bottle. Poured a slightly hazy, medium to dark amber with an average, off-white head that mostly diminished. The aroma contained. light caramel; hints of chocolate; Ricola; cola; flowers; herbs; spices; and some fruit. The flavor was a little watered down. The initial flavor and finish were moderately sweet and lightly bitter. There was herbal tea, ancient ales, cola, hints of chocolate, fruit, herbs and spices, and caramel. The medium body was a little syrupy with fizzy carbonation and a dry finish. Beerathon (1683) - Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 6, 2014
First off, bull crap on the IPA part. That’s just stupid, because it’s nothing like an IPA. It smells like roses, hibiscus, and lavender. The flavor isn’t has offensive, but really, it’s not good. jonathonsti (29) - - MAY 26, 2014
Hazy amber color. Thin head. Ginger or spices with pineapple notes. Not their best beer.

Pours a cloudy light tan. Sort of iced tea. Aroma of ginger and berries. Taste is sweet with a touch of grape. The bitterness seems to come from the ginger. Crisp clean finish.

Aroma - has eucalyptus, floral/medicinal herbs, some honey notes, and spices that are confusing.
Appearance - body color is an orange amber; the liquid is slightly hazed with decent nucleation; off-white head sets up at about 1/2" and quickly subsides into a ring, and eventually totally dies out.
Taste - initial flavor is Ricola cough drop, with a little eucalyptus. There are other confusing spices - it seems to be a compilation of things like elderberries, honey, sage, coriander, and just bizarre combinations. Nice for an incense, not for a beer. Unpleasant.
Palate - body is light; texture thin; the carbonation is average; the finish is herbaceous and medicinal mostly eucalyptus ~ not a fan.
Label says a "Zero IBU IPA" ~ it’s a S/H/V no doubt, nothing about this remotely touches on anything IPA. It has no re-purchase factor to me at all. I got duped. Sucks out loud!
