Bottle at Andy’s while watching football with him, Pearl, Max, and Paul. Pours a clear amber with a thin white head. Soft malt and a bit of sweetness and a touch of hops. Malt, a bit earthy, sweet malt, not much else. Finishes with a bit of earthy bitterness. Decent I guess. jmagnus87 (2912) - Rockford, Illinois, USA - AUG 31, 2013
Draft at fulton. From notes. A lot of caramel malt with minimal pine resin bitterness. Meh, its ok. maekchu (3917) - Hirakata, JAPAN - AUG 31, 2013
Bottle. Caramel, tree bark, tootsie roll, and light butterscotch nose. Medium copper color with a one-finger creamy head. Rough malty initial, with some bitter and candyish notes / mild and balanced...and not a lot else. Medium body. Okay. Very mild all around. cchotz (9) - California, USA - JUL 23, 2013 does not count
They say they use a lot of hops. This ain’t no San Diego IPA. But it is good. Well balanced. I decent session beer. evanlarkin (307) - Northfield, Minnesota, USA - JUL 14, 2013
Pours a red-orange, clear color. A bit of white head. Aroma is resinous, with some sweet malt. Flavors of pine resin again, and fresh bread. Very doughy for an IPA with a fairly malty finish. I would probably consider this more of a regular pale ale, but I do find it pretty enjoyable.

Had it out of a 12oz bottle. Poured a dark clear amber color with a yellow head, and the dreaded wet basement aroma. The taste has blast of hops with notes of caramel. ChiGuy68 (599) - Illinois, USA - JUL 8, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2013 Tasted from a 12 ounce bottle. Clear amber color with a white bubbly head. More malt than hops on the aroma, and surprisingly, the taste.

Meh, pretty forgettable overall. Not much complexity, not a lot of flavor, but definitely an easy drinker, which might the appeal. Nice bottle design, though.
