Tried this beer on-tap at The Black Squirrel in Adams Morgan last night. It was a good-looking beer.. nice 2" cream head atop a reddish caramel body. The smell was of grain, hops, sugar, and spice - black pepper perhaps, with a touch of honey and grapefruit. The taste was a lot more bitter than I would have expected. I found it too bitter for my taste, although I consider myself a bit of a hop head. It was similar to Stone's IPA, but less balanced. I'd have it again, but it wasn't my favorite for this style.
Serving type: on-tap

I loved the oaked version of this ale so I thought I'd try its originator. This one pours a beautiful hazy copper color with a thick off white head that gives way to a nice film and lacing. The nose is malty with a slight hoppy bitterness. This bottle was born more than a year ago so the hop notes have subsided and left a rich malty beer almost reminiscent of a scotch ale more than an ipa. The flavor further confirms this opinion. Id love to try a fresh bottle of this ale because even an older one is impressive.
