look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Pours a very clear, orangy color, with a substantial head. Smell is dank, slightly skunky hops, but as it warms in your hand, the citra really starts to come through. This is true of the taste as well. Let this one warm up a bit and it gets a lot better! There's a nice nutty malt taste as well, similar to what you get from Sam Adams. Mouthfeel is great and overall, this beer is impressive. It's a solid APA and when it warms up a bit, it goes from good to great!

look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1

Orange 3/25 sticker on the side.

A: A darker shade of yellow in color. Forms a moderate sized off white head that quickly reduces to bubbly surface coating. Moderate amounts of lacing.

S: No, that doesn't smell good. Not at all. Burnt butter and fermented vegetables.

T: Burnt, bitter, brown butter. Maybe some caramel malt. Oh man, the taste just lingers too. Seriously, this tastes like a brown butter sauce, but in the worst way possible.

M: I've got to admit, it's really hard to judge the mouthfeel on this one because my face is wincing. Medium bodied? Buttery? Wait, there is some bitterness.

O: Undrinkable. Absolutely disgusting and completely undrinkable. A complete diacetyl bomb. Whoever allowed this beer to make it to the can should be shot.

look: 4.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

16oz can dated 3/25.

Pours hazy copper with a dense head and plenty of lacing after settling down.

Aromatics are a nice blend of lemons and weed. Spicy and dankish with a hint of grapeskins.

Medium bodied with a crispish mouth feel. A bit tacky.

A balancing malt foundation starts the palate with shades of toasted biscuits and caramel. Bright, piney hops follow through with a fairly substantial bitterness for an APA.

Finishes with a lingering hop bite and some residual malty sweetness.

Tasty beer and the hops are a good mix. I just prefer a dryer Pale ale with less malt backbone.

2.31/5  rDev -40.5%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

orangey-amber pour with good clarity, tho some floaties, and a lasting off-white head. aroma is butter (diacetyl), caramel, & over-ripe fruit (citra). taste is similar plus some grass, pretty much all diacetyl and over-done citra. seems like got a bad batch based on other reviews, but probably won't be giving it a second shot. never experienced so much diacetyl in a commercial brew.
