I am now committed to reducing, if not eradicating, my backlog of bottles. This one came from the Mix & Match Beer Singles selection at the Weis Markets Beer Garden in Lititz.

My pour was a little tipsy, as in I tipped up the bottle on the lip of the glass and let fly. Following a pseudo-cascade, I had two-plus fingers of dense, soapy, tawny head with good retention. Color was a deep-amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity. Nose had a very strong pine characteristic and I have no problem with that, as long as there is more to it than that in the flavor. Mouthfeel was medium. The flavor was much like Gertrude Stein's remark about Oakland that "There's no there, there." This had to rank as one of the blandest AIPAs that this hophead has consumed in a while. There was a faint bitterness, but it just was not very remarkable. Finish was semi-dry, slightly bitter, but still not getting the job done. I was really underwhelmed by this one.

Ouch. This is bad. Very bad. Hairspray galore with a lingering burn. Ouch, indeed. Any hop character is blown out by this off the wall flavor profile. Carbonation is way too full. Nasty stuff. First sip was okay. Everything after has been a complete disaster. Drain pour!

This brewery can't be open for much longer if they keep putting out crap like this.
