3.18/5 rDev -17%

On tap at the Whip In.
The beer pours an orange color with a white head. The aroma has a ton of orange citrus notes, with a little bit of biscuit malt. The flavor is similar at first, but there are also some odd notes. I get some orange notes, but there is also a dirty character which makes the beer a bit difficult to drink. There is a decent amount of bitterness. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
Serving type: on-tap

Acquired via trade
Nearly clear dark orange and amber with a moderately sized off-white head. Leaves the head messy with thick streams of bubbly lace down the glass. Very pretty pale ale.
The nose is decidedly better than the aroma. Toasted biscuits, earth, mild citrus, and some dulled caramel combine nicely. This reminds me of many well-made, yet straightforward American style pale ales.
The flavor isn't quite as pleasant as the aroma, with a very high level of bitterness and just a touch of an onion or garlic character taking away from the otherwise pleasant biscuit, earth, mild citrus, and grapefruit character.
Medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation. Very nice.
Decent, but being surrounding by the best hoppy beers in the world, this one just doesn't quite stand up. Still very glad to have had the opportunity to try it, however!

12 oz can pours a very hazed, light copper color with a small, tight cap of tan head. Retention is average and lacing slightly above.
Nose is candy caramel apple with a light toasty malt aroma. Hops are a little bit of pine and tropical fruit.
Taste has pretty substantial contributions from both the hops and malt. starts with a tropical hop flavor, followed by a strong toast/toffee/caramel malt. Finishes plenty bitter as well. More of a hoppy amber than a pale to me, and the malts sometimes get carried away on the toasty side, but not too shabby. I wont have much problem finishing my sixer, but it would have to take a good sale price for me to reach for this one again.
