3.54/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

The color appears as a light gold with a foamy and white head; lots of energetic carbonation bubbles. Doughy, warm bread smell with hints of strawberry and other fruits; a twinge of lemon. The flavor has weak grain notes with a strong bitterness that builds through the finish. Medium bodied; semi-dry finish.

This is a decent pale ale with an emphasis on hop bitterness over anything else. The malt flavors and aroma comes across in a low-key manner, perceptible and decent as such, but really kept in the background. The label on the bottle is pretty straight forward with regards to "subtle flavors and aromas". Tasty enough and very drinkable in a quiet way.

I had this froma 22oz bottle which cost $4.99 as well as on tap at the brewery in Edwards. I don;t like double reviews so I'll note each one here as they were both bad but in different ways. The appearance was the same for both, golden yellow, good head. The aroma on the bottle was mostly butter, yuck. The aroma on the tap version was weeds, not marijuana but like milkweed or something, yuck. The flavor on the bottled version was a lot of butter and the tap version was green, vegetal weeds. I'm not sure how each version managed to be so different, they were only consumed a day apart but they were both equally terrible.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle.

Very dark golden color, a little murkier than your average pale ale. Nice dense head, about 1 inch thick in a Sam Adams pint glass. Quite busy on the carbonation front.

The nose was nothing special; typical pale ale to me.

Interesting taste; hop forward, but with a bit of pepper up front, too. Very crisp and not much maltiness. The bitterness level was about average. Its difficult for me to describe the subtleties of the taste. Not too fruity IMHO, despite the manufacturer's claims. Mostly a hoppy beer with a unique taste.

It won't be a "go to" beer for me, but I'd buy a pint now and then.

This is one of the more rustic beers I had in a long time. The beer is interesting and good but not always at the same time. Popping the cork releases a whiff of vinegar, light malt, lemon, citrus and a little bit of fresh mowed highway shoulder planted with prairie vegetation. It’s a funky pour - cloudy with small particles and a lot of sediment on the bottom of the bottle. I may have an infected bottle – the palate is very creamy, tart with lemon and citrus notes, some green herbal to vegetable tastes, grainy light malt and almost as much salt as in a Gose. It’s light, highly effervescent and refreshing if you can get past the particles. Pour carefully, the sediment is gross.

A sample glass at an Elite Brands tasting

Pours a murky golden color. Nice little head. Clean it up and it would look great

Holy bees knees. The aroma is awful. Must be this particular hop. It's weedy, dank, pungent green, almost agave. Yikes

Flavor has a bit of that aroma in it. Unique flavor to be sure. A sample glass was almost too much. Traces of tropical fruit and melon...traces if I think about it. Some sugars

Feel had a bite, but it was too little too late. A hop bomb for sure, on a hop that needs to be looked at again. Maybe I got a bad pour?

A 22oz bomber is way too much.

on tap at park burger, they do a nice job with their rotating taps. have have heard quite a bit about this beer, nice to try it there unexpectedly. blonde with some haze and a big two inches of pure snow white head. nose of fruity hops, tropical and unconventional, almost a kiwi fruit nose, with some citrus in there too, summery and light, and the effervescent carbonation tickling my nose helps this feeling. it has a real light grain bill, lets the hops do the talking, fresh and biscuity. the hops are relatively new to me, sweeter, or maybe this beer just has some residual sugar to it, but there is a light oiliness to the fruity nature of the hops, and a subtle white peach vibe as it fades to medium level bitterness. great carbonation and lighter medium body, but a pint still fills me up a little. one of the better crazy mountain brews honestly. i wonder if they will package this one.
