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.

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.
