Poured a honey orange clear color with two fingers of khaki white head. Good amount of even layered lacing along the sides of the glass. Nice and foamy. Very good retention on the top.
Smelled wet soapy hops. Kept getting dish detergent. Also got floral hops, soap, light pine and light lime. Soap I tell you.
Was not pleased with the taste. Gave it a “what the hell is that?” face. Tasted boozy, some cologne, some bad liquor, malt heavy, citrus hops, orange and very bitter. Did gradually seem to get better, but still not a lot of flavor.
Medium body. Creamy texture. Lively carbonation. Bitter finish.
Just did not like this beer. Very unbalanced and very few highlights.

Day of the Dead series from Cerveceria Mexicana in Tecate. Clear light copper from a twist off 330 ml. bottle and poured into a pint glass. Rich cap of foam and good lace.
Light spicy hop aroma and notable malt backbone. Bit out of balance and muddled with malt notes. Flavor is similar and just an upped version of thier pale ale from my guess. Bitterness is a bit lacking on the finish and quoted at 50 IBU's on website.
Not unlike a 21st Ammendment or many an other Northwest or mass produced house label IPA's in my experience. Yet better executed in a sense though maxed out as for grain bill resources. Hops a bit stale and a bit much on the crystal malt don't do an IPA any justice for me.
