Bottled. Orange-copper coloring - dark for a pale ale - with white head that laces moderately onto the glass. Aroma is very hoppy, and the flavor is mostly bitter but with some malt put in to make it interesting. Finish is dry and hoppy. This is an excellent pale.

BlueDevil0206 (122) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - JUN 9, 2005
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2005 Pours a fairly dark orangy copper for a PA with a white head that lingers a bit. Aroma was packed with piney, citrussy, grassy american C hops. Flavor is intensely but pleasantly bitter with excellent hop character but with sufficient caramely sweet malt backbone. Some modest ester profile complements the flavor. Slighty buscuity as well. It is also quite full bodied and smooth. I really think this beer should be classified as an IPA and pride and joy should be their american pale ale but thats just me. I could drink this regularly. A really excellent beer from an excellent brewery.

I have had this beer for some time now. It seems to have changed a bit over time. When they were located in Hammond I used to get it on tap at a local pub. It was a yellow cloudy "cheap" beer. It had great aroma and citrus flavor. Now it is cleaner with the same great aroma.

Complex aroma. Floral, aromatic hops and a hint of red wine. Amber with a large thick head that fades but not quickly. Some malt in the flavor, but the dominant flavor is fruity hops. About as good as a pale ale can get.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7622) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 5, 2005
UPDATED: DEC 2, 2011 This is the first beer I have managed to try from this brewer. Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright bronze color with a medium sized tan head. The aroma is strong sweet hops - very fruity. The mouthfeel is rather thick and smooth. The flavor is strong fruity hops - almost a fruit cocktail element to it. Very sweet.

MIBRomeo (2570) - Wisconsin, USA - JUN 2, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 pours an almmost off orange tan yellow color w/ a small white head that laced well but fell apart quickly. Aroma was very good floral and citrus hops hints of some fruits probably apricot. The palate is a bit bitter fairly carbonated and overly dry. Flavor is a little over dry in the hop area w/ a decent bitter finish a touch piney w/ its big hop flavor there are hints of the fruitiness i smelled as well. Overall an ok beer in my mind nothing more, Id rather have robert the bruce anyday.

12 oz. Bottle: Very large floral hop aroma, pine, and fruits. Flavor is dominated by dry hops, and complimented nicely by sweet fruits. Finishes long and dry.

I found this one incredibly over-rated...It had a nice head, but I didnt think the hops were quite as strong as i was expecting. I found the whole taste on this one incredibly average.

I little strong for my likings. It pours with a decent head, especially for an ale. The color is one one of those crayons in the box of 64 between orange and brown. Its got some fruit, to give it some much needed sweetness, but I find that the hops dry the beer out.
