Bottle was filled right to the top of the cap. Little carbonation. Little smell or taste. Vegetal, earthy smell, metallic, watery. shrubber85 (11618) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - SEP 7, 2012
Bottle. Caramel malt and grapefruit rind aroma. Chestnut with minimal head. Chocolate caramel malt and moderately bitter orange/grapefruit peel flavor. Medium body. Pretty good - weird that it is so much darker than their APA. Ughsmash (7510) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 12, 2012
On tap at Milwaukee Brewfest. Poured clear, lighter coppery-amber with a short beige head. The aroma picked up herbal and floral hops over toasted caramel, bready, and nutty malts.. OK balance, but the hop bill didn’t really do it for me. The flavor found spicy black pepper and earthy hops over warm bready malts.. fairly hot finish with pine resin bitterness. Medium-plus bodied with moderate overall bitterness.. OK feel and flow.. not my favorite of the day, but it was drinkable. Patrickctenchi (6731) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - JUN 20, 2012
Pours cloudy orange with thin tan head.
Scent is faint fruit, stronger pine.
Taste is mildly bitter citrus..peppery, a little biscuity.
Nothing special, but pretty decent. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - AUG 18, 2012
This draft brew from a beer festival poured a small sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a softly carbonated transparent orange colored body and a good lacing. The mild aroma was hoppy and dough. The semi-flat mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start and at the finish hoppy aftertaste. The soft flavor contained notes of mild hops floral and hops. An OK brew just nothing special.

bottle fountain. about 15 to 1 ratio of foam to beer. dumped the foam and tried to drink the couple remaining ounces of malty liquid. bitter and boozy, flavor lacking. liquid shit. patrick767 (4176) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - JAN 5, 2014
bottle - Pours amber with a huge head. It has a sour band aid smell. Infected crap. Every bottled beer I’ve tried from this brewery has been infected. The draft version is probably okay, but they need to start over with their bottling line.

Bottle. Sweet brown sugar malt aroma. Clear deep copper with a minimal beige head and almost no carbonation. Flat metallic flavor. Medium flat body. When there was absolutely no little "fitz" sound when I opened the bottle, I began to suspect I got a lemon. I’ll have to re-rate this some time.

I didn’t think this beer was too bad. Definitely a bolder pale ale, not quite the flavor of an IPA. I’m a little surprised by the description of 9% alcohol as I didn’t detect any alcohol in the flavor with the beer seeming too light to hid it.
