Traded gf for a single out of her six pack. Bought from Morgans Liquor store.

A&S: Semi-lively transparent copper colored beer. Head pour around a finger fades to nothing pretty fast. Specks of lacing. Aromas consist of sweet malts with somewhat of a citrus background.

T&M: Very bready, hops flavors are again citrus but not very present. Pale malty finish. Mouthfeel is pretty good; nice smooth feeling beer (around medium bodied) with a blunt carbonation.

Overall: Very average APA. not sure about the price so I can't comment on that, but I would hope this wasn't over 10$ of a sixer. This is really picky but the can were in aweful shape: spilled beer specks on the top of the can which would be a hard outside Crazy Mountain because of the plastic covering, on top of that the sides of the can and lip were super crusty. The later could be post-production, but I couldn't image the former being one.

12oz can, from Tipsy's Liquor World in extreme western Denver.

This beer pours a hazy medium copper amber hue, with three fingers of puffy, and overacting bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some stellar honeycombed lace around the glass as things seep away.

It smells of musty, dank pine needle hops, bready caramel malt, a bit of blood orange, guava, and tropical melon fruitiness, a touch of black pepper, and further, understated earthy, floral hops. The taste is still musty and clammy, but with the hops having sneakily skipped town, leaving only an echo of rotting pine tree and muted stale citrus in its place, with some weakly biscuity bready malt taking up the flag in its sudden absence, a bit of spicy pepper and earthy, weedy hops rounding things out.

The bubbles are fairly well sublimated, the body an adequate medium weight, and kind of pithy in its smoothness. It finishes off-dry, the bready caramel malt pulling cleanup duty for the near DOA hops.

Bleh. There is mention on the label of 'fading hops bitterness', and while I'm not sure we share the same interpretation of the concept, in the end, all that matters is that this is one bland, muted affair for the style, the overbearing musty, clammy character having no place in a worthy APA. A bit of a shame that I wasted suitcase space on this one.
