1.8/5  rDev -46.4%

Bottle - decanted into a pint tumbler

A - mediocare head...quickly fades...mild lacing

S - bready malts, faint lemon-grassy citrus, not impressive for an APA

T - Same as nose with some not so pleasant astringent bitterness. Very boring. Not a whole lot going on

M - Slightly soapy oily quailty...creamy...good mouthfeel but thats about all it has going for it

Overall - The second bad pale ale I'm reviewing today. I had high hopes for this one too as Fegley has produced some great hoppy brews. I suggest sticking to them on tap and as fresh as possible (probably only at the brewery). Their bottled offerings have been disappointing. I will not be buying any more fegley's bottles.

Cheers!

Not impressed at all. Only one flavor profile no head which means no lacing light bodied.
Very one sided beer. BITTER BITTER AND MORE BITTER
I would not drink again but if you like very bitter very hoppy beers, this is the one for you. I chocked it down but just not my favorite. Slightly disappointing.

2.55/5  rDev -24.1%

Appearance - orange hazy color. No head whatsoever on this beer.

Smell - citrusy. Smells like a mix of oranges and grapefruits. Actually smells quite nice.

Taste - unfortunately it really just does not live up to the smell, or any of the other average pale ales on the market.

Mouthfeel - average

Overall - I really don't think I would drink this again, nor would I recommend it to friends

3.08/5  rDev -8.3%

Clear sunniness in body with white bubbly overhead. Smells of lemongrass and pine. Light flavors of lemons, slight pine, and citrus and rind. A swooping bitterness towards the finish and then cleans up. Light in body with light carbonation. Light and clean.

3.18/5  rDev -5.4%

Poured from the bottle into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a finger of off white head that fades to a ring around the edge of the glass and leaves a hint of lacing. 4.5

Smell: Bready malt with a hint of sweetness and some citrus peel hops. 3

Taste: This beer is malty up front and very bitter in the finish. The problem is that there is no real transition between the two. The citrus peel hops just blow up and crush the tongue. 3

Mouthfeel: Medium body with lots of fluffy carbonation and a dry finish. 4

Overall: Almost really good but ends up being just ok. The hops just come out of nowhere and crush everything else. 3
