poisoneddwarf (2422) - Coeur d Alene, Idaho, USA - JAN 27, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 28, 2017 12 oz bottle. Aroma is floral, fruity (berry, citrus), caramel, ginger ale. Pours hazy new penny copper with a thick bone-white head with good retention and some lace. Taste is sweet, mildly bitter. Mouthfeel is a little watery. With that ABV, those IBUs, and that mouthfeel, it seems more like a straight pale ale. Kind of boring whatever it is.

Luvystypotables (1805) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 31, 2016
Pours a hazy copper color with a short lasting white head. Aroma of malt with a hint of caramel. An unpleasant malt taste with a dry medium body. A funky malt finish.

bhensonb (14632) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 2, 2016
Bottle from Marcus. Pours orange gold with a white head. Aroma is floral. Med body or so. Flavor is an odd sort of cooked pale stone fruit with some slightly roasty malt and after notes of diacetyl. I dont like that. Not a terrible beer, but for me its not too enjoyable.

Other than the looks, this is subpar. Its dominated by bittering hops without bring that bitter. A bit tinny. Bad finish, very metallic.

jgb9348 (5993) - Arlington (Pentagon City), Virginia, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Nice copper and bronze glow to a thinnish, single centimetre tall off-white head. Aroma of earth, toffee, pears and apples and a bit of very mellow english or low a.a. hops. Light to Medium-bodied; Strong earthy and biscuity malt flavours with some caramel and toffee and a touch of light herbal hops and a touch of grass coupled with some sweeter elements on the end, but nothing too deep or strong either way. Aftertaste is rather bland with only a touch of biscuits and earth and a little hop bitterness, but not much. Overall, not such a great beer, which is too bad, because the name and beer bottle are nice, but thats the way it goes. Definitely not worth carting this all the way from rural Montana to Washington then up to Maine, but still, neat for me to try. However, if you are based out West, there is no real need to sample this one at all. I sampled this twelve ounce bottle purchased from Vintage Cellars in Great Falls, Montana on 20-June-2016 for US$1,75 sampled in my hotel room here in Portland, Maine on 29-July-2016.

stevoj (4464) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 14, 2016
Bottle from Albertsons. As the description says, not a big, overwhelming hoppy IPA, nicely balanced, which makes it an easy drinker. Tasty malts coupled with mild hops. Really good!

hfmejias (1282) - Marshall, Minnesota, USA - APR 23, 2016
12 Fl. Oz. Bottle. Poured amber, clear, small white head and little lacing. Aroma of fruit and malts with a touch of hops. Taste is sweet and fruity, lots of malts and slightly hopped towards the end. Not bad but on the bland side. Dry finish; drinkable.

Pours a clear amber with a medium sized off white head, good lacing. Smell is faint, some caramel, and some hops. Taste is crisp, grapefruit, hops, caramel, and some malts. Ends a little bitter.
