A - dark orangish amber with a soft, short, white head

S - floral, citrus, ruby red grapefruit, bread, faint burnt sugar, medicine

T - floral, citrus, caramel, medicine, toasted malt, grapefruit, bread

M - smooth, medium bodied, well carbonated

I'm not sure what to say about this beer. It's all over the place. The hops are citrusy and forward. The malt bready and light. There are weird medicinal notes throughout and a citrus character that tastes like juice from concentrate. I won't be having this again.

Hazy orange amber with thin off-white head and okay retention. Resinous tropical citrus. Sticky earth and grass with a dominating biscuit malt with just some very light notes of the tropical fruits. Light to moderate bittering. Light, sharp body with a heavy finish.

A good hop display in the aroma is quickly beaten back by the malts throughout the remainder of the drinking experience. The initial aroma is great but is dominated by a heavy biscuit and pilsner. Not an overall pleasant experience to finish but a pint wouldn’t be bad if I felt like a heavy EPA.

From Bier Thirty for about $6ish... Poured into my slim tulip.. hazed
light orange with a good head and lacing.

EDIT: Just going to put this out there right up front... This is NOT
an English Pale Ale... A pretty cool mash-up from Gigantic and 3
Floyds.. but still... NOT an English Pale Ale.

Nose shows citrus blossoms and some background tropical fruity hops...
malt profile is mild caramel and hints of nutty/toasty malts..

Flavor is about the same.. nice American fruity hops and malts that
get punched in the mouth.. only hints of caramel or toasty elements...
nutty/toasty notes show up on the finish.. but even then the hops
steamroll anything from the English 2-row catalog.

Body is good.... Fairly thick for an APA, good for an EPA.. medium
carbonation...

Overall, waaaay toooo much American influence and it blows out what
little English input that may be there... Maybe if you let it age for
a while :-)

Decent American Pale ale... but pretty shitty English Pale Ale.

Meh... I doubt I will buy this again unless somebody wants it for a
trade.. Too expensive and too lackluster for anything other than a
one-time enjoyment.

Served chilled into a tulip.

Pours a hazy strawberry blonde with a white head that recedes quickly.

Has sweet, slightly tart aroma, reminiscent of sour hard candies.

Flavor is fairly sweet with a sour background. Fades quickly with very little aftertaste.

Light to moderate body with moderate carbonation.

I was glad to see other people struggle with reviewing this one as much as I did. Overall a good beer with some interesting characteristics but something missing. Light body would make for a good summertime brew.

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass.

A dull amber orange body, and some minor cola like bubbles hit the glass. Quite a hazy appearance, with a three finger off white light tan head, some pretty good staying power and retention, and some big swiss cheese holes for bubbles.

Nose is really faint, a mild soft chew orange citrus hop is just trying to creep out. Faint peanut nut on this strangely too. Not bad but kind of uninteresting.

In the palate a mellow orange juice hop quality mixes with some rolling malts on the tongue nicely. Fairly decent body feel with an almost juicy rich coating, but just not getting there. Aftertaste brings some light toasty aromas of malt, some faint soda flat carbonation seems to pop out also.

Overall not too bad for a pale ale, easily drinkable brew.

Bottle from LetsPour.

Sweaty bottle, rounded pint glass. Admiring the depraved personas of the ratebeer chatroom while trying to plug in reviews on an otherwise ordinary weekend afternoon.

Clouded orange amber, brew. tall, but thin whitewash head.

Mild citrus rind; juicy. Leafy green. Faintly buttery. Toasty grain.

Taste is toasty grain upfront, followed by very sharp, bittersweet citrus/coriander. Beyond astringent, a wincing, sharp pith. So I corked the bottle & came back to it a few hours later. ... Mellowed, but still lingering. Lots of juicy fruit & bitter lettuce. Not traditionally bitter, but just coming from a different direction. Crispy carbonation. Body is a little itchy. Average alcohol. Finish is dry grain & lingering foliage.

"Kilned over Welsh Coal" - Yeah, totally picked that out. :P
