SpringsLicker (3560) - Tennessee, USA - MAR 7, 2004
This pours an amber colored beer that has a good head which quickly recedes. Clean aroma of hops with just a whiff of malt behind it. The flavor has an IPA like hoppiness with just a touch of hop astringency. The finish is slightly bitter. Overall this needs just a little more maltiness to smooth out some of the little coarse edges. A bid thanks to Slikwily for sending this trade!

Lubiere (13412) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 6, 2004
Hazy brown ale with a thin head. Resinous hops and citrus flatters the nose. The taste is even more intense, with hops which coats the mouth, and with creamy texture, this beer is an excellent Pale ale. Goes well with a gruyere.

Yankovitch333 (612) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 5, 2004
Pours a light copper with a think offwhite head. Aroma is citrusy and full of hops. Pine, citrus fruits, and a hint of maltiness. This was a great pale ale. probably the best I've had.

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAR 4, 2004
Bottle pours a hazy amber with minor dishwater head.   Good carbonation, average lacing.   Large aroma of hops, flora, and sweet candy.   Initial taste is a bit biting, but it quickly mellows and becomes quite smooth.   Bitterness that appears at the back of the mouth vanishes quickly... very interesting.   A bit malty on the finish, with some minor hop notes.   Flavor throughout is very subdued tho.   It definately pale and has a dry finish.   Points for that, but flavor could have been a bit more assertive.   Thanks goes out to Pabobcat for the trade!

UPDATED: MAY 24, 2004 Pours a copper color with medium white head. Very floral and citrus aroma. Flavor is floral with heavy citrus hop flavor and bitterness. Malt flavor is a little underpronounced.

A slightly cloudy brown and orange beer comes out of the bottle. I won't discount for the cloudyness because it is from the yeast added for bottle conditioning. The color is quite striking. It has a wonderfully sweet floral hop aroma. There is a great citrus hop flavor that goes nicely with a cool sweetness that envelops the mouth. There is a nearly perfectly ballanced bitterness. A hint of the floral hop present in the aroma is distinguishable. This is a great beer. I'm so happy that there is good brewer in Indiana.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2005 Deep amber color with big white head. Floral hop aromas. Great blend of malts and hops. Nice West Coast grapefruit flavor. A nice beer at 6.5%

heemer77 (5340) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - FEB 20, 2004
UPDATED: MAY 9, 2004 I am re-rating this and getting rid of my old one. My palate has changed a lot in the last six months. I tried Dreadnaught and loved it. I cannot get my hands on that, but this is a regular beer avaialable where I live. Color is a relatively clear, dark orange with some head and some lacing. Lots of citrus and pine in the aroma. The flavor is orange rind with some bread and a little cinnamon. Great bitter and sweet aftertaste. Wonderful all around.

brownaler (615) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2004
Forms a large off-white head with a dark amber appearence. Has a chewy and piney hop flavor with a clean and sweet finish. This beer could easily called Dreadnaught Light. Just an absolutelty wonderful beer!

VAYankee (353) - Virginia, USA - FEB 6, 2004
Clear dark amber body with a head light cream colored head and nice lacing. Strong hop aroma(both pine and citrus hoppiness), with a faint maltiness in the background. Initially a citrus hop taste accompanied by a minimal malt counterbalance. Has a strong yet still pleasing bitter finish that becomes slightly sweet as the beer warms. Quite easily the best APA I have ever had.
