Tucked in a corner cooler, with a rather nice price tag.

Pours a deep amber, off white head that recedes quickly, leaving behind a bundle of lacing.
*Upon pouring the last half of the bottle, a large amount of sediment came out with it. Agitate before hand if you want an even mix, or if you wish to avoid sediment, decant carefully.

Some citrus in the scent, other than normal yeast and wheat aroma nothing too spectacular.

I was blown away by the taste, I don't know if it was just the setting or circumstance or combination of what's in this beer, all I could taste was chocolate on first sip. Floral hops blends into chocolate, maybe a hint of coffee or caramel leaving a nice bitterness over everything that makes you want to reach for another sip. Tastes similar to an IPL I've had, only better. Fairly sure the notes I picked up weren't actually there, given the amount of sediment this could have been on the shelf for quite awhile.

A tad thick, leaves a bit of a residue that sticks around a for awhile.

Pleased with this purchase, would recommend to anyone who can handle a bit of bitterness.

I enjoyed and would definitely recommend this APA. Solid flavors enhanced by moderate carbonation. Has a bit of a kick after the swallow but is still SMOOTH enough to drink all evening......ENJOY!

Poured from a 22 oz bomber into a snifter. Thanks Matt for this beer.

A- Pours a copper colored body with an off-white head that reduces slowly and leaves some nice thick lacing.

S- Subtle grassy aromas, nutty, bready, sweet malt.

T- First up is a bittersweet bready note, followed by smokey, nutty, yeasty, raw malt flavors.. definitely rustic. Slight resinous bite on the finish.

M- Medium body and carbonation.

Interesting and unique.. I like the raw character of this beer.
