12oz can poured into a pint glass.

A: Golden-amber in color with a mild haze. The foamy, bone white head retains very well. Lacing etches the glass with small, foamy clumps.

S: Floral and perfumey hop scents pour out of the glass. Orange zest and pineapple juice as well. Dry grainy malt base. The nose is one dimensional, but I find it to be quite pleasing anyway.

T: Floral, pithy tropical fruits, pineapple. Citrus zest and citrus rind. Lemon and orange, to be exact. Broken pine needles. Modest push of bitterness. Grainy malt base, caramel. Butterscotch pushes through more as it warms. Peppery, herbal hop bitterness takes over and dominates the finish.

M: Medium bodied, full. There's an almost syrupy texture at play that gets lifted away by the aggressive, scrubbing carbonation.

O: Not a bad drink, but it's a beer with a little bit of an identity crisis. Slightly buttery and beefier in the malt department like an English pale, hopped like an American IPA; it never feels cohesive. Good marketing though.

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.
