12 oz bottle, with "Bottled" on dating etched onto the label.

NIce looking pour, rich, darker amber, sturdy khaki cap, leaves larger bubble, froth, and low sheeting.

Resiny pine and citric hop nose.

Sturdy IPA, with more then ample hop flourishes..and a nice smooth malt base providing the balance...worthy IPA

Great amber colour, good head and lacing. Strong hop/malt/rye smell, especially as it warmed up. Was expecting it to be more bitter, more complex, given the description. It's got bite which refreshes, but wanting more complexity and maybe more carbonation (it's the summer currently, so could be biased).

Amber colour, big head that fades leaving ring and lace. Aroma of resines, fruits, chocolate, caramel. Medium body, good carbonation. Taste of caramel,chocolate, resines, herbs, fruits, citrus. Not so bitter as one can expect, good balance between the sourness and the sweetness.

Decent IPA and enjoyed at the lake. Bought a six pack annoyed all of them. Nice mouth feel and taste. Nice end of day beer after a fun filled day. Nice feel and finish and good aroma.

A: [3.50] Cloudy and dull tan color. The beer has almost 1 finger of white head. The head recedes quickly but leaves a nice curtain of lacing on the glass. They list the ABV (6.0%) and the IBUs (72) but I can't find a date anywhere.

S: [2.75] Chocolate, caramel, burnt caramel, The burnt caramel lingers and is not great.

T: [2.75] Slight rust flavor. Followed by regular metallic flavor. There is also some reddeming flavor in the malts. Brown sugar, maple syrup.

M: [2.25] Medium body with low carbonation which makes it feel flat. The flat/under carbonated feeling really detracts further from the beer.

O: [2.50] With no date there is no way to tell how old this is. I had this one other time during a tasting (so I assume it was fresh) and I don't recall it being this much of a turn off. Hey, their fault for not using dates - I rate what is on the shelf. The nose and the taste are not good. The have weird off notes that seem to dominate the beer. The lack of carbonation exacerbates this and just makes the whole thing not worth it.
