4.25/5  rDev +9.5%
look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: 1 inch head, high carbonation, gold in color, cloudy

Smell: citrus hops and pine hops

Taste: citrus hops and pine hops--light honey and malt to balance out the beer

Mouthfeel: sweetish start with a dry bitter middle and aftertaste, light body, medium carbonation

Overall: A nice dry and hoppy beer that is never overly bitter. One of the better pale ales I have had. I am glad I picked up a four pack of this and would get it again if I wanted this style.

1.4/5  rDev -63.9%
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.

3.9/5  rDev +0.5%
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.
