COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Rumor has it this beer is the favorite of a former U.S. President. An IPA with big hops bitterness bumping against three varieties of 2 row barley malt goodness. A fan favorite.

To me this is a great non mass market IPA. Has a good flavor, aroma and color. Lots of people rate this IPA low but I think most are use to mass market IPAs

UPDATED: JUN 21, 2012 On tap at The Flying Saucer in Little Rock. Pours a clear, deeper golden colored body with an inch thick, dense, creamy and frothy, off-white head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly spicy earth and grapefruits with a bit of a stale orange and a light grass alongside a medium sweet bready caramel. A slight onion note from the hops with a few florals in there too. Flavor is medium-light sweet caramel with a slight breadiness and a good amount of grassy, slightly earthy grapefruit hops. Some orange notes as well and no onion thankfully. Finishes pretty dry with a few resins, florals, and a medium bitterness with some grapefruit and a lightly spiced earthiness. Lengthy aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent IPA. Fairly dry and bitter with some grapefruit earth and resins alongside a bready caramel malt backing. The aroma gave off a bit of a weird note, but the flavor was better. Not bad.

Poured into a snifter. Golden to amber with a finger of head that held well. A blunt citrus; mostly lemon smell. There is a malty smell lurking in the background but he never really comes out to play. Greeted with a medium bitterness, followed by honey and grapefruit. A balanced, straightforward profile. Crisp, bubbly and medium bodied. This is an easy drinking IPA. When you are looking for a classic IPA to throw back, here it is.

Certainly not a very bitter IPA, but looks and tastes nice. The flavor starts out a bit malty/grassy but gets much better as it goes along. Overall, itís a pretty good beer.

Bottle gifted by Ratman. Pours lightly hazy dark orange/copper with an average, fizzy/frothy white head, medium retention with fair lacing. Aroma is light cereal, straw, and biscuit malt with heavy earthy, floral, and citrus hops and a light fruity ester nose. Flavor is moderately bitter with herbal and earthy hops and some light malt to balance; light fruity esters are present with a dry finish. Medium body, warmth, and carbonation. Happy IPA day to me!

Ratman197 (14680) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - JUL 24, 2011
Bottle courtesy of Emmasdad (thanks Dan) poured a hazy amber with a lasting amber head. Aromas of biscuit earthiness, light pine and light grapefruit zest. Palate was medium bodied and smooth with a dry finish. Flavors of biscuit, earthiness, grapefruit zest and a hint of pine with a smooth dry lingering bitter finish.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a thin beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, spices, and hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of caramel, cloves, and malt, leading to a dry and bitter finish.

3.3
ben4321 (6413) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - JUN 1, 2011
Location: 12 oz bottle from Colonial Wine and Spirits, 6/1/11

Aroma: The nose has some orange, grapefruit, and caramel notes to it
Appearance: Pours a caramel-brown color with a lasting beige head, good lacing
Flavor: The taste is reasonably sweet up-front with a nice bitter hop finish to it
Palate: Medium (plus) body, a creamy mouthfeel thatís a touch metalic, and a long lasting, dry finish
Overall Impression: Iím finally "enjoying" my first beer from Arkansas, and since Iím going to be spending entirely too much time in Little Rock in the near future, this surely wonít be my last. My second beer of June also happens to be my 2nd new state rating of the month. Thatís some top quality state ticking! As for this beer in particular, it was pretty solid. It leans toward the sweet side, and is something Iíd drink again. Better then I expected (for Arkansas!).
