Pours a nice clear, kind of burnt-straw color, big head. Smell is beer like, but also a little like scotch. There is some hop presence, but it's mostly bittering hops and it's drowned out by this boozy, scotchy smell/taste. I would never pay money for this, but I've had worse beers.

Another Manly Men beer, found on tap at The Lion's Pride.
In a pint glass the beer was copper colored with a huge white head. There was a good deal of lace.
Outdoors, herbal aroma. Some citrus. A good amount of sweet malt.
Resinous pine taste. A little bit of grapefruit. Biscuity.
Hoppy and smooth. Nicely balanced.
I enjoyed this the most of any of the other Manly Men beers.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.
Apperance: Golden amber in color with about one finger of white head.
Smell: Citrus, hops and pine notes.
Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth medium bodied. Taste of sweet citrus up front with a very bitter after taste.
Overall: Decent IPA. I would have this one again.

Hazed orange glow with a bright white head which fades a little quickly. Tons of pine and grapefruit on the nose with a touch of detectable malt. Thinner body. Tastes more like an english IPA really. Sweet bready and caramel malts followed by tons and tons of pine with a touch of grapefruit and that lingering earthy euro hop finish. (Tastes just like an IPA I homebrewed recently actually) Very clean finish with lingering bitterness. Touch of perceptible alcohol which is a bit of minus due to the low ABV. Nothing out of the ordinary but well brewed at least. Unique blend of English and American IPAs in my opinion. Not the first of its kind but it doesnt do a bad job. At the same time, theres nothing that makes this one special.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 21, 2013.
The pour is a very murky, cloudy pale yellow, light amber with a small white fizzy head.
The aroma is subtle overall. There are biscuits and malts but there is a an earthy hop note that balances it all off quite well but does not take full command. It is the way I like my IPA's to smell.
The body is medium and rather astringent.
The taste is much like the aroma with a decent dose of biscuits and bread at first, some sweetness, and a slightly elevated earthy hop flavor. But again - not overpowering and actually well balanced.
This is an easy to drink, not in your face, IPA!

A: Dark orange, plastic fruit shine, vibrant shower of effervesce with a healthy protein haze. Buff toned marshmellow head of one finger with a spotted lace band.
S: Soft lemon flower, very weak, no complexity, some semi-dry oranges and pale grains, nothing to smell here move on.
T: Coarse, dirty lemon flowery rough bitterness. Coarse oranges, chalky herbal citrus, musky sage, again very rough around the edges leaving a particularly bad after taste of dirty citrus.
M: Chalky mouthful, high rate of carbonation, turns frothy and washy on long holds. Again coarse feel and bitterness doesn's sit well on the tongue, chalky citrus aftertaste.
O: Overall tries to be a mean and bitter beast, but just exposes its poor craftsmenship. Bitterly harsh, and not in a good way, dirty rough hopping, no flavor aspect, just a harsh bitter mess. I love my hops, particularly flavored forward ipa's, and i particularly like Columbus, which i later found out was utilized here, most likely all early contribution with no flavor or aroma addition. Not balanced, not smooth, no bottling date for confirmation and a reasonable drain pour. For a beer that highlights what columbus hops can be at thier finest look no further then Anderson Valleys Hop ottin, an exceptional example, this was a jaded ,plain jane, unbalanced and unworthy waste of good hops.

A) Pours with a finger thick head and settles to a thin lacing at the edge of the glass. Clear golden-orange body. Sticky lacing on the drink down.
S) Pungent. Spruce. Some floral and citrus notes.
T) Bright, hoppy bite upfront that lingers all the way through and into the aftertaste. The malts poke through attempting to balance the profile but the hops still dominate. Orange. Grapefruit. Some rind notes.
M) Medium body. Dry. Tannic.
O) A well crafted IPA. I'd have another one.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.
A very bright white and fluffy head is produced quite nicely but only about two fingers deep, but manage to settle into a solid finger nicely. Body color is a hazy murky dull orange and brown amber, with not much else to see or say.
Nose is closed. A small earthy hop sense, lots of dirt and soil sensations. Let's see where this goes.
Palate hits with a very solid body, almost creamy. Bready malts hit with the finish and an nice pine bitter hop blast. Earthy quality comes out with a sense of drying slightly, and some toasty character. Good lingering hop finish, with a real good texture and feel.
Overall it's a different take on the American style it seems from other American IPAs, but it's certainly not terrible. I could have this again, but can't say I am craving it either.

A: The beer is hazy darker shade of yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin but dense off white head that hardly died down, leaving lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: There are light to moderate aromas of earthy and spicy hops in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste of this beer is all about the hops and has notes of earthy and spicy flavors along with hints of citrus hops and grainy malts. There is a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels medium-bodied, somewhat crisp and a little chewy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: There's nothing overly special about this IPA but it does a pretty good job of having an interesting spectrum of aromas and flavors for a single hop beer.

Poured into an imperial pint glass. Color was a light golden amber with a 1/2 finger head. Head was a mix of large and small bubbles. Also had a fair amount of haze/sediment floating in the pour. Aroma was mostly hoppy, with a bit of herbal undertones. Taste was predominantly the bitter hops, with a small amount of oatmeal hiding in the back. Felt good in the mouth. Coated well and was nicely carbonated. Overall not bad. A solid IPA, but nothing outstanding.
