Beautiful amber appearance. Not a major head of foam on this one. Smells of northwest hops, a very enjoyable part of the experience of drinking this beer. Upfront, very smooth, pleasant taste of citrus hops and hints of caramel. The finish is really offensive; a very unusual bitterness that I am not really familiar with. This beer has some balance but it comes out in a weird way. Not a lot of carbonation. For the style, it definitely works. This is a really weird beer. I love the aroma and look, and I like the bottle and packaging a lot. The experience of drinking such a fun experiment was also very enjoyable, as I was really in the mood for something new and different. This definitely fits that description; It's an unusual brew!

A bold wiff of hops as you open the bottle mellowing to a pleasantly mild aroma, bold flavor balancing hops with earthy malts. A very pleasant drink. I applaud Iron horse's unwillingness to be forced into tightly defined types and definitions and stretching the boundaries of flavor and style in the micro brewing community! cheers.

Cloudy reddish amber in appearance. Very nice foam that lasts well and adds some nice swirls in the glass. There is a little sweet malt with a tang of cider. The sudsy mouthfeel is the best quality. Some citrus in the nose.

The flavors are as murky as the way it looks. Leafy, muddy, and moderately bitter at first. Somebody called it a "red IPA," which is as good a description as any. A little orange and grapefruit peel from the hops. There is a mineral flavor that seems to come up with each sip. Oddly hot after some sipping, and then overly bitter. This isn't as unpleasant as lots of other dank and herbaceous brews, but I can't see the point of this. From the 22 oz bottle bought at Skagit Valley Food Coop in Mount Vernon.
