Bottle served into tumbler

Freshness jan 30 2012

A. A filtered copper orange color. 2 finger head which reduce quite fast to like 1/4 inch head lacing.

S. Grapefruit and piney flavors. Little sweet biscuits from the malt end. Little tame.

T. Grapefruit notes melds with bitterness from the hops. Very little on the malts ends a little biscuit notes recede after the end.

M. Kind of watery side, and low carbonation. Very sappy, but not the sappiest. Taste lingers for a while afterwards!

O. Pretty decent American pale ale. Mine was a bit old so the hops were a little tame. Not sure if i like more bitter beers or if this is one is a little old. Pretty readily available IPA with higher abv and taste for the more experienced hop heads. Buy a plenty!

Good sh*t. This is beer. It is a good beer. It is cheap, it is drinkable and this beer will get you drunk. My girlfriend had wine, I had this beer. I had others but this is the beer I liked most. I will order this beer again. It was a bit strong for my 8 year old, so we mixed it with soda water.
