On tap at Grandad's OKC. Pours a cloudly dark amber with two fingers of white head that reduces quickly. The nose is mainly Belgian esters and some bready malts. The taste is in line with the aroma: Belgian yeasts, floral notes, malt and just the slightest bittering hops. Medium mouth with a lingering aftertaste. I actually find myself liking this one better than I thought. It's not something I would drink every day, but not bad.

Pretty good - my kind of IPA as it is not too hoppy. Had on tap at the Mayo hotel in Tulsa. Great aftertaste and very smooth.

Released 24 days ago. Purchased 1 day ago in 12oz 4pk format. This Machine was named for the slogan "This Machine Kills Fascists" written on legendary Oklahoma musician, Woody Guthrie's iconic guitar. With this message, Woody used the best weapons he had, his words and his guitar, to help fight the war between good and evil.

This Belgian-style IPA pours a chill-hazed bronze color topped by a thin white cap of foam leaving behind scant lace on a tulip glass.

Pronounced aromas include pineapple, tangerine, Belgian yeast funk, and fresh cut grass. There is some bread dough and a slight phenolic vapor hovering.

Tongue is assaulted with sharp grapefruit bitterness, caramel, candy sugar, citrus and pine. A bigger hop profile than you'd expect from a Belgian-style IPA. Understandable given the hop varieties used - Nelson Sauvin, Citra, and Amarillo.

Feel is medium bodied from the stickiness and gentle carbonation. Pretty dry due to 7.8% abv.

Overall, this is a good, but not a great IPA for me. If the hop recipe were scaled back a little (gasp!) to more resemble a Belgian, I may like it better. It's good to see Marshall Brewing stepping out from their comfort zone if that's what they were after. Glad I got to try it.

An amber sea is capped with an abundance of tan foam.

Blown inland are brisk notes of lemon orange, Belgian yeast and hops.

Tastes big on the caramel with a thicker than expected and creamy bubblegum body that is thinly wrapped in earthy bitterness. A slight funk and spice adds to the complexity.

A supremely well-balanced and flavorful Belgian IPA that sails very close to the best of the style I've tried.

This beer is pretty new to Oklahoma, but it starting to appear more around the state. It is a Belgian style IPA and is very tasty. It has hints of citrus and is not overlly hoppy. it is amber in appearance and its drinkability is very high. Hopefully this will appear in bottles soon.

trying this in bottle form, will disclaim this beer was better on draft

Pours an effervescent caramel with a thumb of cream colored head. hazes up a little bit at the end, stellar head retention & lacing

S: Pineapple, breadyness, mango, pears & peppery notes

T: Follows the nose, a little bit of barnyard. Pears, white pepper, pineapple, some grapefruit & a little breadfruit, plus dried fruitcake notes as this warms; plus more pear. Finishes with more pear, plenty of pineapple & appleskins

MF: Medium bodied, firm carbonation, slight acidity; nice balance, a little too carbonated

Drinks fairly easy, Belgian is a little too dialed back for my liking; well worth a go
