"the hoppy stuff has been the only chink in the new glarus armor. nothing bad, but definitely not standouts like the fruit beers...or the wheats...or the barleywines...or the lagers :) this ended up being a very nice, well-done session ale. lighter in all aspects than the majority of black ipas i;ve had, but very pleaseant and well balanced at the same time. reminded me of the hop and malt profile of odell mnt standard, and awesome black ipa...just a ton lighter. easy drinking and refreshing, though. thanks Lou, for the liver damage!" jcwattsrugger (12559) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 22, 2012

12 oz bottle. (Kwik Trip) Lake Mills, WI.shrubber85 (11706) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Dark reddish brown colour with a small tan head.
Grassy and fruity hops, liquorice, mild roasted malt and mild bitterness in a delicious aroma.
Very balanced. The flavour is a bit more leaning to a porter and the aroma to an IPA.
Roasted malt, bitterness, berries and grassy hops in the flavour. Nice and tasty.
Bottle. Caramel malt and pine/orange peel aroma. Dark chestnut with large tan head. Sweet molasses/chocolate malt and moderately bitter pine flavor. Very tasty. BVery (11459) - Plymouth, Minnesota, USA - NOV 12, 2011
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2014 Bottle at MN Gathering @ Skyview V. Darker brown pour with a slushy off-white head. Aroma was fresh hops, nut, and vegetables. Medium palate. Taste was caramel, nut, hops, and malt. Decent brew. daknole (11048) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - NOV 29, 2011
Very dark brown pour, a tan head. Aroma has a great juicy hop note up front followed by some roasty malt notes. Flavor is so smooth...hoppy but not overly bitter. The chocolate and sweet notes shine as well as the hops. Skillfully done! phaleslu (10898) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 29, 2012
12 oz. bottle as a local trade bonus. Pours an initially hazy cola brown that clears up, with a small tan head. Aroma of citrusy, earthy hops, toasty, roasty, and chocolate malts, pine, and herbs. The flavor follows the same tack, with chocolate, roast, earth, pine resin, citrus, and earth. A little metallic note, too. Light-medium bodied, with a fruity mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice BIPA.
