Bottle.
Appearance: Amber/copper. Hazy. Nice, medium, fuzzy head. Nice lacing.
Smell: juicy fruit gum. Caramel. My wife says guava.......I don't know what guava smells like.
Taste: toasted bread and cracker malts. Earthy and citrus hops followed by a nice grapefruit peel bitterness.
Mouthfeel: medium carbonation. Medium body. Dry.
Overall: meh...decent pale. A little different. Malty. Not bad.

650ml bottle, not the freshest - production date apr.29 2014 Specs > 16 Plato - 90 IBU - 76 AA - 24 L

A- murky brown with a touch of red. creamy off white head diminished to a thin layer with nice lacing.

S- I have a slight cold so my nose is a little off but the aroma is a little subdues with some sniffs of grapefruit and floral notes.

T- some crackery malts up front with a slight hint or caramel sweetness overtaken by assertive hop bitterness throughout. Lots of grapefuit and spicy hop oils resonate throughout my mouth. I wish i didnt have a cold right now because i feel like im only getting half the package. Finish is bitter and somewhat dry.

M- nice carbonation, it works well for the beer. mouthfeel is slick and medium bodied.

D- a strong flavor profile kept it enjoyable and very drinkable.

Overall i will be re-reviewing this brew ( sans cold ). Good brew the abv felt stronger than 6.0%. I felt that the 90 IBU rating is about right. Good brew but not the best from this brewery. I felt the hops to be a little overpowering to be honest.

Poured from a bomber bottle into a snifter.

L - Color is dark copper with lots of orange tinting. Head is light tan, thick and sticky. It has serious lacing on the glass.

S - Aromas are mainly of malt, with light toast, brown sugar and molasses. Hops are only secondary, and are earthy rather than highly citrusy. I detect what seems like slight oxidation, which makes sense now that I see on BA the beer was a seasonal summer release.

T - Flavors are also dominated by malt over hops. Malt is toasted and sweet with just a hint of a light roast note. Molasses. Hops flavor is earthy with a low citrus tang. Like the aromas, the flavors indicate an aged, slightly oxidized quality.

F - Medium body. Medium hops bitterness. Low to medium carbonation. Low alcohol presence.

O - There's no way to tell what this beer was like when it was fresh. My sample is aged, lifeless and slightly oxidized. It's just not very interesting. I won't seek it out again.

Pours dark red with a bit of cloudiness. Massive rocky head never dissipates, very impressive. Sweet maltyness and some herbal, citrus hoppiness in the nose. caramel, and dried fruit malt mix with leafy, piney, citrusy hops in the taste. Bitterness doesn't seem like the 90ibus on the bottle.

A nice malt centric APA with high hop bitterness. Could be a bit more aromatic in the hop department. Still definitely worth a try.
