I purchased this in a 22 oz. bomber at my local package store in Dorchester. I poured it into a pint glass.
Appearance is a golden brown to orange color with no head to speak of. It is rather opaque and appears to be unfiltered. This is not the nicest looking pale ale.
Fragrance is mostly of the dirty malts, with a hint of coconut fruitiness sneaking through that is actually quite pleasant.
Mouthfeel is smooth with carbonation at a minimum.
Tastes very malt forward with hints of caramel and dirt. The hops are sneaking just slightly at the finish along with the coconut again. The fruitiness of the esters along with the hops at finish is very pleasant even if I would have preferred a bit more hop flavor.
This is my first BA review and without thinking too hard about this beer I might have dismissed it as being not hoppy enough. Thinking more I enjoyed the simplicity of the malt and the slight sweetness along with the muted hop finish. It's not perfect, but I enjoyed it.
