2.7/5  rDev -10.9%

[Best served in a Shaker glass]

The pour was a clear medium orange with a yellow hue and an average sized (1-2 finger) off white creamy head that lasted a little while and had some excellent sheets of lace.

The aroma was almost non-existent, but a tiny bit did happen to come through. It was of a light straw malt and a mild floral hop with a note of caramel and a hint of citrus (grapefruit).

The taste was mildly sweet and a little thin with a hint of caramel in the beginning and finished with a light bitterness and had just a touch of citrus at the end. The flavor faded quickly and was gone in a matter of seconds.

Mouthfeel was extremely light in body and quite watery in texture with a fizzy carbonation.

Overall this brew is super light in taste and body and does not offer much more than being a thirst quencher...

P- Thanks to my buddy Matt for this brew.

A- a light clear amber color with minimal head and cylindrical lacing.

S- bready floral citrus hoppiness. Caramel malts come out faintly but they are hidden.

F- Hoppy floral flavor with bready/caramel maltiness. Not bad but not good.

M- light bodied but the flavors dont mesh as well i was would hope for the APA.

O-It tends to become more watered down as a i progress through the beer but it is a nice APA.

3.13/5  rDev +3.3%

Appearance: Poured a nice amber color. Head was moderate in quantity, nice and creamy and reasonably long lived. Lacing was minimal.

Smell: Caramel, bread and a hit of floral hops.

Taste: More caramel malt with a biscuity finish. Some hope flavor up front and a bit, but not a lot of lingering bitterness.

Mouthfeel: On the light side of medium, decent carbonation.

Overall: This was a tough one to rate. IT was a decent beer in the end, but it was nothing like my expectations based on the name. I was expecting a moderate to highly hopped paleish ale, and instead got a more malty, less hoppy amber... Rated against expectations it would probably lose a point to half a point on smell and taste. I instead rated it more on the style it seems to be trying to be.

2.65/5  rDev -12.5%

Appearance: pours a hazy orange color with a 1/2" head.

Smell: light caramel and a bit of funky wet carpet comes through.

Taste: caramel, some mild citrus, a hint of breadiness, and a bitterness that seems disconnected from the beer.

Mouthfeel: medium bodied. Light crispness from start to finish.

Overall: very unbalanced and non satisfying beer for the style. I had a tough time finishing the pint glass. There are much better APAs out there.

I let this warm some out of the fridge. Poured with an average sized off off white, short lived head and some lace. Color is a clear amber with a couple of slow bubble trails. Aroma is wet grain, malt. Flavor is similar to nose, plus some sweetness and carbonic tang; not much hop. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor and quite short.

Horney Goat Hopped up 'N horney pours a almost hazy golden color, with very little head. The smell is skunky, and smells like a cheap euro lager. The taste is watery, pale, more malty then hoppy. Not very good carbonation, not too easy to drink, not sure I would like another, leave an offesnive taste. Overall this is just an avoidable one, tastes cheap, I hate to not like these really small brews, but this one isnt good.

2.58/5  rDev -14.9%

Pours a nice dark orange from a 12 oz bottle.

Smell is slightly floral with an equally strong bread aroma.

Slight hop taste at first that blends into a malt sweetness. Some lingering hop bitterness after swallowing.

Medium to light mouthfeel.

Overall this beer is OK, but not impressive.

2.98/5  rDev -1.7%

Beer #5 from sampler pack and hoping for some redemption, after all how hard is it to load up on the hops, dare I speak to soon?

A: A frothy off white head sits a finger high atop a Bengal tiger orange body that had a sharp clarity and a steady light rise of effervesce. The lacing is well enough, providing adequate coverage. So far this is, perhaps the highest rating of any category I think I awarded any of their beers. A tick above average regards.

S: The nose had dry flowers, herbal scents of oregano along with some dried orange peels. A ever so slight mention of garlic was also picked up upon, a dash of summitt hops? The strength was light as with most of their beers but at least had a flash of some mentionable character for a change.

T: Again as with most of their beers things start off watery. After a surprising decent start the more things change, the more they stay the same. Dry herbal notes, dry lemon grass, thing turn a bit fuller on succeeding sips, with some signs of dry toasted grains and pine giving this just enough ummph for average credit here.

M: Light bodied, a bit washy on longer holds, and I do mean washy. Dry pine afterthoughts are light on the mention while things take a step back here.

O: Overall average is perhaps a bit generous, but it doesn’t totally turn you off flavor wise, just disappoint with a less then adequate show of hops and malts. Small flashes of dry hoppiness, toasted grain ad hops manage to come through but the name cashes a check (hopped up and horny) that the beer just cant deliver on. I could go for a second here, a rarity with their other beers, but comes with a shrug and a why not if nothing else is available though reluctantly and unethusiastically.

3.03/5  rDev 0%

Pours amber with head deteriorating quickly and leaving some light lacing along the glass. Hops smell musty. Citrus, floral, bready, and thin taste. Not a special beer, but refreshing, highly drinkable and, something you don't see often with average beers: appropriately priced.

Well, this one begins as a proper pale should. It's clarity in the amber body is pretty good, and the head is quite large and impressive. The light foamy mass sinks slowly as it leaves webby clumps of lace.

The downfall begins with the aroma. As far as hops goes, it's got about as much kick as Coors. Fizzy lager aromas, with just the tiniest poke of hops (if I didn't know it was a "pale ale" I probably wouldn't have even noticed).

Fortunately flavor is better, albeit not much. The hops do make an appearance with resiny pine flavors and a definite floral finish. It's not the cascade goodness that gets ME hopped up and horny.... Aside from that and a dash of bready caramel malt, I'm left wishing for more.

The body is pretty thin, but it has a nice slick feel and good carbonation to keep it from seeming to diluted. I'm not sure if they just skipped the final hopping for the aroma, or if they're just trying to appeal to the masses (more than likely both). It's more a disappointment than anything.

2.65/5  rDev -12.5%

Poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a clear, very light orangish/amber color. White head that measures one finger. Nice retention.

S. Somewhat faint. Mostly getting citrus, malt, and mellow hops.

T. Again, very faint. Taste the hops upfront but that quickly dies down to a watery citrus and malt flavor.

M: Light bodied with low to medium carbonation. Very watery. Pretty weak.

O: I didn't necessarily enjoy this beer. With that said, I'd take it over BMC any day. I'd drink it at a cookout if it was offered, as it seems somewhat quenching and sessionable. This might be a good beer to introduce to the BMC crowd.

Thanks to schmittymack for sharing this one with us at my house. Poured a dark golden color with a little white head. Aromas of biscuit, citrus and light pine. On the palate, this one is medium bodied and kinda flat. Flavors of biscuit, crackers and light citrus.

2.53/5  rDev -16.5%

Shared this one at Dan's on Saturday. Poured a fairly clear golden color with a creamy white head that didn't last too long. Slight aroma of malt and citrus. Taste was pretty average at best: very slight citrus, malt, biscuit, and no real bitterness in the finish. Not a drainpour by any means but not too impressed. Glad I was able to try it but that's about it.

3.23/5  rDev +6.6%

This beer pours a golden orange body with a small white head.

Nose is simple and malty, but has a nice mild citric hop smell.

Taste is medium bodied leaning on light with very smooth body. Taste has a very strong cracker and caramel malt taste to it. Hops are very present, but not overwhelming, with a more just bitter flavor than any strong defined citric hop. Very hoppy though, as far as a MOR IPA goes, but not a pallette killer by any means. Ends with a lingering malt and mild hop taste.

Decent beer, it's got some hops in it. Very much an old school mid 90's type "micro brew" IPA. Nothing over the top, just a hoppy drinkable ale.

3.35/5  rDev +10.6%

The color was golden and it was very clear with a soapy and creamy, bright white head. It had a very light earthy hop aroma with a nice malty smell.

The body was ok, and the mouthfeel was slightly carbonation crisp. The carbonation was the only thing noticeable up front. The hoppiness seemed a bit earthy and piney, well worth the money I spent on this, but would not go out of my way to pick one up.
