2.05/5  rDev -46.2%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

regularly priced at $13.50/six pack. bought for $11.00.

pours out a relatively clear bronze colour accompanied by a thin light tan head and sparse lace. hefty malt aroma paired with some citrusy hoppy notes. a bit of wet cardboard, and maybe a bit of cocoa and toffee. the taste profile is a bit of a conundrum in that it's oily and resiny in the hop department, while the above average malt profile throws down some generic base maltiness that really does nothing to pique any interest. no hint of alcohol. it seems a bit flat because of the lack of carbonation, and those two set backs seem to bury any wet hop flavours into oblivion. some herbal and resiny hop by products can be detected, and there is a muted flair of bitterness. oily, slick mouthfeel. full but flat body. poor drinkability.

overall, i'm quite disappointed. this could be past it's peak of hop freshness, but that's no excuse for the rest of the overall profile. i have a bit of trouble getting wet hop ales, and i've also been burned by brau brother beers in general over the years. so, with that being said, this is a complete flop for me, and i'm not afraid to say that this over priced concoction sucks in my honest opinion. definitely not recommended
