Poured into an Olympia tulip on 4/5/13

11/08/12 on the bottom of the can; this should be a treat.

The appearance is somewhere between honey and pineapple juice. Short head with good staying power. Nice amount of sticky lace.

Smells of caramel, bread, floral hops, and dead and dying citric hops. Candied overtones. Not great, but whatever.

The taste is bad. Astoundingly bad. I've not had a beer taste so uniquely bad in some time. Not nearly enough caramel compared to the aroma and shaken with contained bitterness. The caramel that there is tastes like it was spat out on the ground and run over by a rubber tire situated on a Deep-V rim directly under a straight bar and no hand brake. What is with this bitterness? Fully realized, but contained within a manageable satchel. Dirty roots and herbs.

The feel is bristly like a mustache.

This is utterly ridiculous.

a - poured a two-fingers thick eggshell-colored head into a willi becher tumbler glass that left good lacing and sheeting throughout. the body was straw gold but had a lot of yeast floaties in here which is very odd for an APA.
s - big citrus and orange peel aromas.
t - citrus flavors again dominate but the hops don't taste fresh to me. there is an off-flavored hop going on here too that i can't put my finger on.
m - crisp bite with a medium body.
o - this beer has its moments. the flavor is pleasant as is the mouthfeel but the floaties and the old hop flavor really take away from this.

12oz. Slightly hazy dark gold pour, made more hazy by my uncareful pour. Wasn't expecting much sediment out of this but oh well. White ring is about it for the topper.

Aroma, quite piney, light herbal notes. Some balancing toffee like malt.

Taste, this can is a little older but the hop presence is still pretty potent. Though after a nice citrus-pine start this goes downhill. Stone fruit and some toasted malt background. Some odd vegetal and burnt/astringent bitterness dominates. I can see they were going for a big resin bomb but it comes on too strong. The least pleasant hop flavors I've experienced since a nasty can of Gubna. Maybe it is the age.

Body where it should be, carb is maybe a tick high. Drink okay but the failed hop experiment makes me wish I left this on the shelf.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

$3.50 + tax for a 12oz can. Poured into straight pint glass. Poured a cloudy orange-amber color with less that 1/4 inch of off-white head that had low retention and lacing. There was a lot of particulate matter floating around this thing, which really hurt it in this department.

The aroma was mostly citrus and floral hops, with a very light malt presence. The taste started out very bitter (and not the enjoyable kind of bitter), then had citrus and pine hops take over. There was no real malt presence on the tongue.

The body was medium-full, smooth, and had a dry finish. The drinkability suffered greatly that bad bitterness. Overall, this is not a good beer, you can safely spend your beer budget on other things.
