Sample at the brewpub. Fruity, cherry-apple dominated nose; wonderful, huge malty fruitiness throughout, berries and fresh grass and old musty books...big body, thick and juicy...this was actually my favorite of the seven samples I had, and one of the best bitters I’ve ever tasted. Awesome job, Mike! 502Che (999) - @, CAMBODIA - NOV 27, 2008
On tap at Rich O’s. Fresh balanced and easy drinking. No alcohol on aroma or flavor. Hop and malt deliciousness medium body. Fantastic. shrubber85 (11710) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Tap. Sweet orange, barley malt and grapefruit peel aroma. Amber color with small head. Sweet orange toffee malt and moderately bitter orange peel flavor. Nice sweet malt and hops mixture. tykechandler (343) - Kentucky, USA - JAN 29, 2010

Pours amber/light red with zero head because of the server. Nose is lightly caramelly with Semi-heavy grassy and herbal hop character with notes of almost spearament. Taste is heavily herbal, grassy and again nearly a mint hop character. Also sone caramel and biscotti English malt character. Medium light bodied, strainght forward mouthfeel. Finishes medium dry and bitter. I really dig on the hop character. Good beer.

Light hoppy notes. Pours amber with tints of red and very little head. I dont get much smell of it. Slightly heavy on the finish, but a great start. hotstuff (5281) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 27, 2004

Original rating: Draft at Rich O’s in New Albany, IN. Large ivory head, good lacing, uncarbonated, and an orange brown hue. Aroma was malty, caramel, sweet, and fruity (apples?). Sweet, bitter, malty, and hoppy flavor. Tingly palate.
Re-rate at Scotty’s Brewhouse, Muncie, IN. Small ivory head, hazy orange-brown hue, fast-rising carbonation, and excellent lacing. The aroma was malty, bitter, citrus hops, caramel, and hints of pine. The flavor mimicked the aroma. The mouthfeel was smooth and creamy and this is a medium bodied beer. Overall, the hops were very upfront and this is a beer very worthy of trying and one I would drink again considering I am not a "hop head".
