1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Draft at the brewpub, 11/16/06: Very pale amber with an active, thin head. Actually a light caramel aroma. Sweet and malty wtih just an acidic bitterness that falls waaaaaay short. Poor attempt, in my humble opinion.
Slightly hazy orange-tinted body with a super-thin slightly off-white head. Aroma of fresh hops, some light malt, vinegar and a tiny bit of apricots. Medium-bodied; Nice hoppy flavour up front, mixed with the ’off’ vinegary tastes. Aftertaste shows potential as it leaves the palate dry and bitter. Overall, a decent APA - not enough character to be good. Nice to try as a fall seasonal, though! I sampled this beer on draught at the Bricktown Brewery in Oklahoma City, OK on 17-November-2005.

On tap at the brewery.Hazy yellow hue with a white head. Nice lacing. Has a floral hop smell. Medium bodied with fairly strong carbonation. Taste starts with light, sweet malts and grains, then finishes with a zesty hop bite. Not bad for a 3.2% IPA
The brewery serves all their beers too cold, around freezing temperature.Jul 2004

Acidic and sour. Citrusy but not in a hoppy way. Has a buttery finish. Something has gone horribly wrong here. jzzbassman (1638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - NOV 21, 2005
Can I just ditto mjames?
Just went back for the first time in years for our Quarterly Recognition Event. Horrible butter, no bitterness, awful. Unlike mjames, I sent mine back and got a wheat that while boring, at least wasn’t icky.

UPDATED: FEB 11, 2006 I’ve had it with Bricktown Brewery. I waited until they finally brewed an IPA, and I now want my $3 back. Gold clear appearance. Sublty hoppy, mild wheat and grain aroma, but overall very buttery on the nose and lips. Why do all of their beers taste like butter? Is it diacetyl? Buttery, wet finish. Who brews this and why? Bricktown Brewery could be so much: it has the right location, right building, great food, and is the only brewer in their area and only 1 of 3 in the city. Please learn how to brew... buy a book, hire someone new, whatever it takes. Brew something with character. Maybe someday you’ll be browsing online and do an ego search and you’ll read this. Don’t take this as dumb criticism, take this as a concerned beer lover in Oklahoma that would like to see you succeed and become the best brewer in the midwest. Or you can continue to pump out the cookie-cutter, diacetyl-flavored house beers for unsuspecting people. How many people visit the brewery and go away thinking the craft beer market is junk? My lowest rated IPA ever.
