bottled, dark golden pour with thick white head, aroma of leeche fruit with slight grassy/fruity hops, sweet fruity and slightly bready flavor, thick and heavy on palate with slight residual fruit hops Learninbeer (625) - Sterling Heights, Michigan, USA - DEC 9, 2009
Not looking forward to this one. A buddy got this the same time I did and he said it was horrible. Been sitting on it for over a year. Pours a cloudy brown with an off-white creamy head. The aroma is malty, sweet, caramel, toffee, and a hint of hops. The taste is a watered-down bitter, a little sour on the tongue. Not as bad as I dreaded. As I keep drinking it, more of the maltiness sticks with you. bigrond (1499) - factoryville, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 8, 2009
Aroma promises hops by the truckload. Its looks like a beast. Flavor is strong. Hops are everywhere, they can’t hide in this brew. No balance whatsoever, but that is not really a bad thing. This beer tastes stronger that its ABV. I like it.

Pint bottle. Pours cloudy dark amber with a dense one finger creamy beige head that leaves really nice lacing. The nose is caramel malt, floral hops and light citrus. The taste is caramel, earthy hops and tart grapefruit at the tail end. Medium mouthfeel. Hoppier than most English IPAs I’ve had, but not enough for me. An ok IPA. puboflyons (3469) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 8, 2009
From the 1 pt. 0.9 fl. oz bottle with no expiration date or lot code markings available. The pour was amber with virtually no head to speak of. The aroma is hardly anything like most IPA"s with a strong scent of malts and barley but very little hops noted. The mouthfeel is about medium and nothing extraordinary. The taste is more like an ESB with dry hoppy finish. Bigmmartin (603) - Dayton, Ohio, USA - JUL 8, 2009
Not my favorite IPA. I usually don’t really enjoy English-style IPAs. This one is thin with little carbonation. A bit of fruitiness in flavor along with some hops. robforbes (2263) - Bremerton, Washington, USA - MAY 31, 2009
pours a semi-hazy orange with no head to speak of.
smell is floral, toffee, sweet malt, and a touch of citrus.
taste is flat, hops, slight grapefruit, caramel, and malt, ends dry, flat, and slightly bitter. MrBunn (2847) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 9, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy copper with a finger or so of foamy head. Aromas are crisp hops and bread. Hops presence is bitter English ESB type hops with just a little edge of pine. Flavor is weak on hops. Bread, grain dust and caramel all dominate with a bit of bittering hops pulling up the finish.
