hopscotch (11236) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 27, 2004
Co-rated by Scraff... Clear, mahogany ale with a mid-sized, creamy, beige head. Very well retained with nice, creamy, thick lacing. Chocolatey aroma with notes of cashews, chocolate chip cookie dough and dark breads. The flavor, although well-balanced and well-bittered, is a bit of a let down. Smells better than it tastes. Light to medium-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Lengthy, bitter finish. Good brew, overall.

DocLock (11020) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 20, 2005
Draft at the Drafting Room. Amber/copper colored, woth caramel malt, toffee, and hop aroma. Tastes malty, with hops, caramel, and cognac at the finish. Smooth, with well hidden alcohol. Undeniably quaffable.

UPDATED: MAY 12, 2013 2013-04-30. Crisp red brown body small beige head. Aroma is sweet and malty, lightly caramel. Flavour is pleasantly malty, sweetish, caramel touches, drier malt accents, light bitterness balances and lingers in the finish. Average plus bodied palate, modest carbonation. My favorite of their beers I think, pleasantly malty, modest alcohol presence in the finish. 7/3/7/3/14 On tap at the brewery

Tap at Hop Devil Grill. Deep ruby colour, thick creamy white head. Aroma is malty and slightly toasty. Light cherry fruitiness on the nose. Warming brings out a touch of bubble gum as well. Toffee and caramel malt with a soft earthiness. A bit of molasses and earthiness. Simple, but tasty winter warmer.
