sliffy (2040) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - MAY 9, 2007
Bottle: Pours a hazy light copper color with an off white head. Aroma, urine and vegetables, earthy hops. Flavor, a definite vegetable flavor, kinda reminded me of celery, some pale and caramel malts, earthy hops on the very end. Thaichile (599) - 10aFly, New Jersey, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle. Pours a clearer orangey amber with quite a few floaties. Normal sized leaves some lacing behind. Nose is piney with fruit(apples). Flavor continues on that theme and somewhat sweet. This is very fruit forward with a persistant but not overbearing hoppiness. Really good all in all, colour and taste. Thanks to lewis13 for this one. merlin48 (656) - Jenkins, Kentucky, USA - MAR 26, 2007
First time I’ve seen Mad Anthony in the Evansville area. Pours a chill hazed peach body with a small almond hued head. Some patchy lacing. Aroma is pine and grapefruit with an odd sour apple note. Medium body and carbonation. Taste is grassy hops with some pine and citrus rind. Subtle caramel sweetness. Passable, but pedestrian. wheninhell (488) - chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 4, 2007

This quality brew was a very nice surprise from these guys (and thanks to Cornfield for the sample!) It pours a very attractive shimmering copper with a light and lively white head floating above. The nose is equally inviting...citrus hopping and light caramel maltiness. The first tentative sip is a substantial caramel and toffee malt bottom supplying a moderate sweetness, quickly undercut by a big and bright bitter citrus hop bite...orange juice and light resins. There was a very hint of astringent harshness in the bitter finish, but only a slight detraction. Otherwise, thoroughly enjoyable...again and again.

I grabbed a shaker glass to pour this in, but after sniffing the open bottle I opted for a Chimay goblet. This poured a deep, copper color with solid streams of carbonation and a smallish, cream-colored head. Intriguing aromas held the strong presence of mint leaves along with a cold, basement-type aroma. Flavor finds a chocolaty start to a finish of mild, yet bitter hopcit. As mentioned several times below, it seems as if there is a good mix of English and American ingredients in there.

<font size=-4>12oz. bottle thanks to <a href=http://www.ratebeer.com/View-User-14352.htm&g />
12oz btl. Hazy orangey and amber pour, dimiutive, quickly receding head, but steady carbonation flowing through the body. Earthy aromas lead the parade - teeming with what seems to be a blend of English and American hops, or it could just be a lack of good aromatics. Tastes English in style, dull however, in aroma and taste. Flavors of oranges, light hop spice, mushrooms and stale malts. Palate seemed watered down. Finish is short-lived and plain. Overall just a little better than average, I am not much of a fan of this one. I beleive this bottle could have been much less than fresh, but without a date on the bottle, I can only wonder if it was freshness, or just a beer I didn’t care for. Will have to retry at a later date. hopscotch (11048) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 26, 2006
Bottle... Hazy amber ale with a small, fizzy, off-white head. Earthy nose with gobs of caramel/crystal malt, light pine and English or Willamette hops? Leans on the bitter side of balance, but has a solid malt backbone. Black tea and lemon/orange peel notes. Medium to full-bodied and milky with understated carbonation. Lightly bitter, balanced finish. Nice English style IPA! Thanks to MI2CA for providing this bottle! vyvvy (6392) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - DEC 9, 2006
Pours hazy orange / amber with a dense beige head. The aroma has pine and floral hops with some sweet malt in the back. Medium body that starts smooth, then a barriage of fizzy carbonation hits sharpening things. The taste begins with sweet lightly toasted malt then some gentle pine and woody hops come in. There is a bit of staleness - no date on the bottle to check the age. The finish has woody cardboard flavor. An okay IPA. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2006
UPDATED: FEB 25, 2007 This is an enjoyable IPA, but the brewers need to kick up the bittering hops. It pours a light orange body with a sizeable pale beige head. The nose is sweet caramel with tart oranges, tangerines, and a splash of lime. The balance of the flavor leans towards the malts with the citric bitterness seemingly tossed in as a teaser. Interestingly, this leaves the mouth with a refreshing piney feeling. This hop-head would enjoy this tasty ale more if more bitterness was present. As it is, it’s a nice sessionable brew.
