This must be a bad batch dumped on the market. Why would it have only have a total of two reviews? And from from people in the middle of "flyover country" to boot?

Here goes:

Deep gold-amber color and excellent rocky head with ample lacing. Smells earthy and dusty. Picking up pears, citrus, pineapple and after-dinner mints in the aroma. Taste is dusty, oxidized and muted malt and seemingly aged-out hops. Could this be old beer? Gasoline finish. Mouthfeel is not bad. Overall a thumbs down.

This was the newest beer this week at Timberlane in (wait for it...) El Dorado, Arkansas. I tried this same beer several months ago and had a similar experience.

Update: looked he bottle over thoroughly. Fond a stamp just below the label: Batch 669, 041113
It may be April 2013. A little old.

3.65/5  rDev +4.3%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Pours an effervescent amber/copper with 3+ fingers of sand colored head. Very good head retention & above average lacing

S: Maltyness, leafy hops & grapefruit

T: Leafy & piney hops, along with pears & breadyness up gtont. Woody & earthy hops as this warms, a touch malt sweetness lurks in the background, along with pears & white grape. Finishes with dryness, grapefruit, leafy hops & pears

MF: Medium bodied, crisp carbonation, pretty good balance

Good AIPA, but not in love with this hop profile, would do in a pinch. I like trying these hop varietals (sic) to see what each brings to the table, not all are gold though...
