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.

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.

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 that’s a touch metalic, and a long lasting, dry finish
Overall Impression: I’m finally "enjoying" my first beer from Arkansas, and since I’m going to be spending entirely too much time in Little Rock in the near future, this surely won’t be my last. My second beer of June also happens to be my 2nd new state rating of the month. That’s some top quality state ticking! As for this beer in particular, it was pretty solid. It leans toward the sweet side, and is something I’d drink again. Better then I expected (for Arkansas!).

Thanks to spycow for sharing this bottle. Served in a Cantillon tulip. Pours a moderate golden-orange color with a single-finger of head with pretty good retention and a light cap on top throughout. The nose is quite strange and reminds me a bit of Corn Pops. Other than that, there’s some light caramel alongside a tiny hint of floral and herbal hops. Quite bready and yeasty underneath. This bready character totally dominates the flavor, and not in a pleasant way. Feel is medium without much bitterness. An odd beer that I did not particularly enjoy.

Shared by someone at bu11zeye’s Super Bowl tasting. Sorry I don’t remember who shared it. The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma is heavy on the toffee and bready malt with some orange and grass notes coming in from the hops. The flavor is similar. I get some grassy and orange citrus hops, as well as some bread from the malt. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

12oz bottle from Ed Roberts. Thanks man! Hazy amber color with a small bubbly head. Aroma has a good bit of hops in there but that’s about it. Flavor has a hop presence with a minimal malt backing. Slight citrus notes come through but nothing too big. A good beer for this style.

on tap at the brewery pours gold with a medium white head. Aroma is pine, dank hops. Flavor is toast, nutty character like almonds with a strong hop presence in the finish with pine and cascade. Finishes with a little bit of metallic astringency.

chibuck (3513) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 30, 2011
Huge thanks to Chris for the elusive Arkansas tick...Medium orange pour, light tope head that is ok...A very malty aroma, tons of caramel, only the lightest bit of hops. Average, but too much alcohol...The taste is not good at all, caramel malt dominates this, hardly any hops, weird taste and feel. Not as bad as I expected, but not good by any means. Below average IPA.

Strykzone (7486) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JAN 11, 2011
ESBLS tasting. A hazy copper beer that has almost no head. Caramel nose. Grapefruit hops effect in the front of the sip but that soon smoothed out with caramel and pine. Not overwhelming at all but well balanced. Quite pleasant and enjoyable.

chicowv (478) - Canaan Valley, West Virginia, USA - DEC 7, 2010
On draft at Little Rock Airport: Pours a rich copper with a small white head. Slow CO2 release. Aroma is hoppy with a crisp, citrus and floral spectrum. Palate is acidic on the front, and smooth and slightly bitter on finish. Taste is a nice balance but hop dominated. Smooth with a slight bitter aftertaste.

On tap at bonefish in Little Rock. No detectable aroma. Flavor is bitter with some piney hoppiness. Some soapiness prevents me from enjoying it. Not sure it’s from the beer or the glass.
