Had this on tap at the pub.

A - Clear amber color with a white head. It is a nice looking brew. Drink the drink process it left a nice lacer on the glass.

S - It has a sharp pine smell with a nutty back. I was not sure if it was going to be really hoppy or really malty

T - I dont know why but I kept thinking of menthol Cigs when tasting this beer, maybe it was just the name. It is a English mild malt with pine flovor hops

M - I though this beer was a little thin. No much body. Cabonation level was nice though

O - Though this beer was OK nothing mind blowing a good showing from three floyds

On-tap at Three Floyds. Served in a half pint glass.

A - Clear amber to brown with a nice thick head that settled to a 1/4"cap. heavy lacing.

S - slight nut and pine. hops giving off nice citrus scent and just a touch of breadiness.

T - picking up more of an English mild with the maltiness, maybe a touch of peat. the finish is all american hoppiness though, a unique combo.

M - carbonation is spot on, very slight pretense of the alcohol. nice combination of the earthy peatiness and citrus from the hops lingering.

O - really enjoyable, don't know if they ever bottled this but i could drink a lot of this

Had on tap at 3F Brewpub in Munster. Poured transparent brown into a half pint glass. One finger head, off white with good retention. Hoppy brown ale with a great roasted coffee-like aftertaste. Surprisingly creamy mouthfeel. Would definitely recommend if you happen to stop by at the brewpub. Wish they would bottle this.

Served in a half pint on tap at the FFF Brewpub.

A - At first sight, it looks like a standard brown ale. There is a small off-white head and a little bit of lacing.

S - The smell is all hops. Citrus and pine hops.

T - One of the more unique tasting beers I've ever had. It has that big hop punch up front, but a sweet and nutty malt backing. I wouldn't think that this would be a great combination, but it works... very well!

M - Mouthfeel is medium. Not overly thick or thin. While it is not really a session beer, I could see myself putting down a few half pints without a problem.

O - If you stop by the brewpub, this is a must try! I'd like to see it in bottles someday...

On tap at FFF.
Served in half pint nonic.

I don't normally read reviews of a beer I'm about to review, but I found myself absent mindedly perusing some reviews as I was engaged in a mediocre conversation...
I must admit right away-- masterski nailed it on his review.

The beer has a sugar cookie malt with a touch of caramel and then citrus and pine hops.
Very hoppy. Very malty. Bit nutty.
Pretty tasty.

Call this a malty ipa and I will tell you it's terrible... As a brown ale-- I like it.

As masterski said-- this is like an English malt bill brown ale with a west coast ipa hop profile.
Just tasty.
