Not expecting much, as this brewery has been mostly meh.

Pours a smaller fizzy head covering, fades at a med pace with surprisingly nice lacing, little sediment, hazy, reddish orange color.

Nose is herbal hops, earthy and a bit leafy grassy, mild herbal tea and slight vegetal, some earthy bitter, more U.K. style bitter. mild sweet malt base.

Taste starts with sweet malts, a little candy syrup and some caramel, mild toasty flavors too. Then hops, quite bitter, earthy herbal hops, spicy, chewy hops, some vegetal herbal hop characters with a little leafy grassy note, but so chewy spicy bitter hops. In the middle is a quick flash of honey, straight up strong honey flavor, then quickly back into the chewy hops. Also a mild apple like fruity flavor on the back end. Finish is long bitterness, a bit astringent as it's so bitter, more herbal earthy spicy hops, that's about it.

Mouth is med bod, plenty of carb.

Overall meh, more like the old style IPAs from actual Imperial U.K. with the herbal vegetal grassy earthy hops, very bitter, some malt backbone that even that can't balance it, nothing too bad but it also doesn't really have anything going for it.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a deep gold color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains fruity citrus, grassy hops and caramelized malts.

T: The taste starts out with some sweet flavors of citrus and caramel. Then a strong but not over-powering hops bitterness comes in. The malt character is hearty but not too heavy and brings a decent balance. The after-taste is slightly bitter.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: A little tasty, goes down ok, not too filling, decent kick, decent representation of style, it’s not a bad beer but there are several other choices in the style that are better.

Bottle opens with a pop and reveals a huge amount of carbonation. Pours a slightly cloudy dark golden color with a huge off white head that takes forever to recede and slicks itself all the way down the glass. Smells of grassy resiny fruity and floral hops with a weird buttery smell. The flavor is resinous and bitter with a tart fruity butter flavor that at first was off putting but over the course of the glass I got used to. Dry bitter finish that lingers for quite a while. Medium to thin body with an asinine level of carbonation and a tart resinous mouthfeel. Meh. Nothing horrible here, but nothing all that great either. Oh and Diacetyl rest!

Poured from a bottle into a shaker pint, the beer is a hazy, bright, caramel coloring with a frothy, foamy, off-white head that settles into a sparse surface coating. Aromas of spicy hops forward, with a toffee and caramel backbone, cedar notes, and a solid bitterness. Flavors are tangy sweet forward, with toffee leading the charge, followed quickly by pepper spice, resiny cedar and bitterness, and a solid ribbon of tart grapefruit. Very well layered flavors. Robust and light bodied at the same time, with a very bitter, resiny aftertaste. This one gets big at the end. Bitter and slightly tart linger on a dry, resiny finish. This is a good IPA.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was a soft glazy looking burnt orange color with a lasting foamy white head. Head dissipates at a nice pace, nice looking rings of foamy lace weave around the glass. The aroma starts off with some sweet malts closing in on some bitter grassy to light tobacco. The flavor leans dried grassy sweet with a light clean smooth dried tobacco-ish aftertaste (acceptable, yet good). Semi-sticky finish. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a decent sessionable smooth feel to it. Carbonation seems to ride fairly light. Tobacco dryness creates an acceptable clingy-ness to it. Overall, English styled IPA, good for what it is, if anything.

From the 12 fl. oz. bottle. Sampled on June 9, 2013.

It pours an attractive looking medium to dark amber with a carbonated head that tops its off for the entire session. Lingers.

The aroma is upfront sweet and malty with an earthy hop feel that tends to take over quickly. It seems to fit into the style well.

The body is clearly astringent and acidic but there is also an unusual creaminess that accompanies it, which is a but odd for an IPA - but not offensive.

The taste boasts a full hop bitterness with the malts and other sweet character played down. It finishes a tad dry in a satisfying fashion. Decent enough American IPA.

Poured from a 12oz bottle, code is 128514, not sure how to read that.

Pours a hazy gold body, lots of lacing and a long lasting head. Aroma and flavor fall short though as it`s dominated by a malty and biscuity profile and bitterness is astringent but without flavor to back it up.

My older daughter and I stopped into the brewpub on Saturday, 07FEB15, for a light snack and some Biers. She had the Wassail; it was the 4000'er for me. A pint vom Faß was $3.75.

The shaker pint held a clear, medium copper libation. Head was a thin, wispy trail of white scattered across the surface. Lacing was decent, and carbo within was slow and steady. Aroma was solid, with piney grapefruit and other citrus fruit present. Mouthfeel, too, was solid, with a medium body and minimal prickle on the tongue.

The flavor had a touch of toasty, caramle malt, with a hint of butterscotch. Rindy grapefruit soon took over, with lots of resiny, piney citrus hitting the palate. The hops lingered quite well in the finish. Found this to be a solid, quaffable IPA. Prosit!!

From BeerAdvocate magazine Issue #67 (August 2012):

LOOK: Quick frothing, clear pale amber

SMELL: Grapefruit rind, passion fruit, pineapple skin, green peppercorn, herbal, estery, crackers

TASTE: Smooth, crisp snap, bitter, grapefruit pith, heather, peppery, lime leaves, dry toast, yeast, slightly warming alcohol, very bitter finish

Wow, talk about being caught off-guard. Yeah, we saw the 82 IBU’s on the label, but we run into that on nearly a daily basis. 4000’er rakes down our taste buds with bitterness and a pretty wild flavor profile. Even the raw nature of this beer does not distract our palate from the massive hop presence here.
