Hipster is orange-gold with deeper hues in the middle and lots of carbonation rising slowly from the bottom. It helps to keep up a barely off-white head that reaches a finger after it's dropped as much as it will and leaves chunks of lacing all over the place.
There's lots of grass and citrus in the nose. Malts provide a biscuity balance with just a little caramel. While zesty, there's just a light touch of lemon so that it's not extremely zesty, and the strongest note is the grass. It could use more strength.
The flavor translates very differently, to such a degree that it's surprising. It's got a sort of chalky and aspirin opening before leading into a leafy and very herbal middle while some metallic notes come out underneath. There's lots of bread still from malts, but the caramel sweetness seems to have been canceled out. Orange peel adds some pith, and a stemmy, raw flavor lingers in the finish. It's also a little sharp. It's forunate that there's enough going on to tide the harsher elements, but they are there.
It flows nicely in a medium body, carbonation even. A nice crispness is provided in each and every sip, and it's pleasantly smooth. It's dry the whole way, that stemmy aspect very much a part of the feel.

A: The beer is relatively clear yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but never completely faded away and left lots of lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: Light aromas of pine resin hops are present in the nose along with some notes of citrus.
T: The initial taste has flavors of citrusy hops, which slowly transitions towards notes of pine resin towards the aftertaste and linger through the finish. Slight hints of caramel malts are detectable. A light to moderate amount of bitterness is present throughout the taste.
M: It feels light- to medium-bodied and quite crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer is easy to drink and delivers a lot of crispness and bitterness for a beer with a low alcohol content.

12oz can. Pours an amber color with over an inch of frothy, thick head. Some lacing. The aroma is floral and perfume-esk, with some melon, cut grass, pine and malts. The taste is more of the flowery hops at first followed by some hints of pine and breadiness. Lightly bitter floral finish with notes of melon. Lots of carbonation and easy to drink. Lends itself to the can well. Overall, its a decent Pale Ale but there are a bunch out there that is as good/better and at a cheaper price. That being said, I'd still buy it again.

I head that all hipsters love this, so of course I do too. It is pretty in the glass - golden with a nice head and decent lace. The aroma is very good but has a bit of a funk.

The taste is a very nice American off balance bitter. The rest of the malt and yeast is far down but not missing. Well balanced. The aftertaste similarly works quite well. It sets very nicely.

The only other issue with this brew is the value - it is a poor value. I hope the more expensive Evil Twins I bought are more extraordinary.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass.

Real soapy looking beer. Head forms three fingers with giant soapy bubbles and white foam. Body color is textbook pale amber, and a bit hazy as well.

Big hint of earth and stinky mud on the nose. Good hint of biscuity malts to match also. Not bad but let's see where this is going. Some more examination displays perhaps a little grapefruit and hiding subdued citrus like orange.

Palate comes with a very easy drinking feel, nearly juicy body for a pale ale. Hop angle is highly emphasized with a hint of bitter pine at first. Finishes larger hop angled with earth and pine bitterness to match. Malt angle is hardly present. Good earthy and just a hint of sweet malts come out in the end, and a bit of orange juice tasting quality.

Overall it's a real easy drinking pale, and a good bitter pine and earth blast of hops that linger towards the end. Perhaps not the most exciting beer but enjoyable nonetheless.
