look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1

Served chilled in a pint glass. 12 oz. bottle.

Appearance: Hazy medium brown liquid with an ecru frothy head (about 3/4" at max. height). Head eventually settles down to a nice sized layer of foam and gobs of foam appropriate to the style cling to the glass.

Smell: Great balance of piney and citrus hops at first, but the grapefruit eventually wins out. Nicely fragrant.

Taste: Precious little malt taste, or hops for that matter... Flash in the pan piney bitterness followed by something like a ginger ale in taste. A major letdown after the look and smell. Look like the Looking Glass line is a funhouse mirror.

Mouthfeel: Watery. I was expecting something with more body than this. Seemed more like weak iced hop tea or something.

Drinkability: Blech. I had problems finishing this. If the smell weren't so good, I'd be thinking I got a stale bottle. Oh well, at least the bottle looks cool.

Still, thanks to feloniousmonk for the trade.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

22oz bottle with a September 27th 2012 best by date.

Clear, dark copper with a half a finger tan, dense head. Very grassy, biscuity aroma. Seems to me a good amount of crystal malt was used. I get that grainy, dark biscuity aroma pretty clearly. Some citrus notes with a swirl. The hops don't really come through as well as advertised on the bottle. Malt taste starts tart and metallic and drops out quick, leaving a faint bitterness on the back of the tongue along with the metallic taste that came back. Obviously light bodied if the flavor drops out, and it finishes dry.

This comes across as nothing special, start to finish. I'll pass.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A - Nice cloudy, yet no sediment amber with a great foamy head.

S - Floral hops, citrus, sweet grain.

T - Citrus tones maybe some fruit. bitter for an APA. it's got some weird twang to it.

M - leaves a weird metallic bitter to the tongue. carb is right though.

D - Meh, It's too weird for me. Possibly off balanced. It tastes a lot more potent than what it is alcohol wise.

Note: It's not something I would buy again.

2.2/5  rDev -39.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance - Pours the weirdest color I've ever seen.. lol. It's like a murky yellowish-orange brown color with a 2 inch, soapy head that lasts for a few minutes. Leaves a very thick lacing.

Smell - Has a very strong bitter funk to it.. with lighter tones of berries (or some similar fruit)

Taste - It has your average pale ale taste with the added caramel and toffee. Bitter, earthy malts, and a very light undertone of some type of fruit..?

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied wit high carbonation.

Overall - I don't know if it's because this is dry-hopped or just because of the ingredients, but it has a very weird funk and feel to it that I don't like.

Pours nice, decent head on it, dissipates quickly. Smells of good citrus-hoppiness. Not really sure why I tried this, wasn't really feeling anything else on the menu, should've stuck with the 60 minute.

It tastes like someone dropped about 2oz. of orange juice and a large sweet valencia orange slice in my beer. I really don't know why, but I just can't get past the orange-iness of this beer. It has a decent hop profile, not too overpowering. If somehow the orange was remove I'd enjoy this, but even as it warms it keeps slapping me around. I want it to go away, but it won't. Wouldn't have another of these. I'd say it's drinkable, but not good by any means.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.25

Appearence: Into to the nonick it poured a clear (hazed my ass) copper with a nice, creamy white head,

Smell: The smell is of earthy, herbal hops that aren't as aromatic as I'd hope for a Pale Ale.

Taste and Mouthfeel: Hmmm. This has a very generic hop taste, as I noticed is kind of a trend with these Rockies brews. It's trying to be lucious and herbal, but winds up being boring, with no real complexity or flavor worth noting. The mouthfeel is medium bodied.

Drinkability and Overall: This is an unimpressive Pale Ale from what's turning out to be an unimpressive brewery for me. Bland and boring, this beer looks good, but has no real flavor. The Mojo was better - and that's not saying much.
