3.93/5 rDev +8.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4
Poured from a 22 ounce bottle into an Imperial pint glass.
A: Angry Planet pours a rich amber hue with a cream colored head that slowly settles. Lacing is sticky, and carbonation is somewhat moderate.
S: Floral hop aroma up front, with hints of pine and some citrus. Malt lends a backround of caramel and toast.
T: A much bigger malt backbone than I expected. It's much bigger on the palate than on the nose. Caramel and bread, with dried fruit character are dominant. Hops balance out the beer with hints of grapefruit, pine, and rose petal.
Notes: This is a very full-bodied version of an American Pale, with a definite note of heat from the alcohol. Otherwise, it's a pretty tasty brew, and unique in it's own way. Not my favorite offering from Flat Earth, but still worth having from time to time.

3.09/5 rDev -14.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Clear red-copper color with a finger amount of head that holds very nicely. The lacing is also very good at sticking and holding to the glass.
Aroma: I picked up some orange-grapefruit from the American hops, but with some kind of funk-tang I can't identify.
Taste: Grapefruit comes through on the taste with some of that funk. A slight breadiness was easier to pickup when warmed up more. Hint of toffee like carmel. The bitterness is harsh on the tongue, distracts me from the flavor.
Mouthfeel: Medium carbonation and light body. Again the bitter harshness does something that seems to affect the feel.
Overall: The harsh bitterness was unfavorable and the hop aroma was less than expected. The malt character was difficult to pickup until warmer. For the style it seems a little off with a few things.
