A thanks to the legendary woodychandler for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a very dark golden/orange color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is a bit fruits, some hops. Taste is some hops, a bit of citrus, malts, well balanced and easy drinking. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a good quality beer.

$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.

Slightly hazy amber color with an off white thick head with good retention and some lacing. Some brown particles at the bottom.
Nice citrusy aroma of grapefruit , pine and sweet malt.
Bitter taste of grapefruit, orange peel, lemon and slightly toasted malts with a mild buttery mango finish. Hints of pine, salt and peppery yeast. Dry aftertaste with a long lasting bitterness.
Light to medium body with a low carbonation.
Good APA, at the level of the American ones.

Hipster Ale is a nice, hazy amber color, if you decide to pour it into a glass. A top blanket of off-white froth hangs as it clings to the glass. The aroma is super inviting, with hints of granny smith apple and other fruit esters, as well as graham cracker crust. After a sip, it's revealed to be much hoppier than the aroma suggests, a bit more than your typical APA. It does have a good toasty malt backbone too though... Ultimately I found this to be one of the better, more enjoyable APA's I've had in a while, and would definitely recommend it and buy it again.

Pours amber with a fading head.
Nose shows orange marmalade, bready malt, sweet caramel. Pretty malty stuff.
Very hoppy flavours, but there's a lot of malt to back it up. Orange marmalade, pine, resinous notes, clean sweet malt.
Needs more carbonation.
