Kind of flat and bland. Why get this when you could get an Overlord?

Think the stamp says pull by 112914, so it's definitely got some age on it. Didn't realize when purchasing.

Aroma is floral and fairly skunky, with a sweet, lightly bready malt backbone. That skunk character really starts to dominate. Almost gives it a metallic note. Becomes much more citrusy as it warms.

Flavor reveals fairly bready malt at the base, with an initial punch of grapefruit, tangerine, and mango that fades to bitter, resiny, earthy hops that linger in the aftertaste.

I like the fruity hop character, but the bitterness overwhelms. That harsh character lingers and really outweighs the decent flavor.

This beer has received exceptionally low reviews and I'm not sure why. Picked up a 4 pack this weekend and it's honestly a solid pale ale. has all the qualities I look for in a nice sessionable APA, crisp citrus on the nose, and a nice bitter aftertaste that doesn't linger too long. Certainly worth checking out

Was just going to give it a number score (3.75), but having read reviews...thought I'd throw in my two bits.

First, despite a number of earlier reviews. and I know the can says IPA. I think this is a good American version of Pale Ale. So I'm looking for hops, but not that big. Much more about malt and hops balance. I'm also found a more Pale Ale smooth draft mouth feel for a good session beer.

Also, I had fresh on tap at Tin Man vs can. So it might be my expectations are different than others.

I liked it. Didn't change my world...but on tap, this is a really nice APA. I'd be happy to grab a pint anytime.
