2.28/5  rDev -30.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Poured into an E&J Cask & Cream glass on 2/23/12

Pale, browned gold with a layer of haziness. Two finger white head is in no hurry to drop though as it does, it leaves swaths of bubbly lace.

The aroma is orange peel, lemon zest and toasted bread. Grass and herbal overtones unfold as the beer warms. It has a lemon-lime twinge and a slight musty smell to it. Thin, watery feel with a low-slung fizzy carbonation are lent to a dirty, bitter, medicinal flavor that overcomes the beer. Rotten orange peel, grass and toasted grains are an uncomfortable, failure-destined pairing for the aspirin-like bitterness.

Perhaps this could be decent but for the scathing bitterness. I would never expect such brute out of such an unsuspecting package.

Poured a huge foamy off-white head. I could only pour about half of the bottle. It even foamed up inside the bottle. For a pale ale it's not particularly pale. More like a dark amber or copper ale. Smells a bit malty and bit like play-doh. No hop character came through in the aroma. Taste is a bit sweet with a very slight hop bite. I'm not getting the Chinook, Columbus or Perle that the label mentions. Mouthfeel is a bit foamy and slippery in a pleasant way. Overall a drinkable ale. Not much else to say, really, except cut back on the freakin' crystal malt or whatever is producing all of that foam.

Hops in this beer are flat and uninspired. Malt is thin and too sweet. The bitterness is aggressive and a solvent aftertaste destroys any lingering pleasantness this beer might have. Alpha acid isomerization has over converted. Adding high alpha hops too early in the boil removes most essential oils creating a flat aroma.
