Ok, another random pick from a local market. Looks and smells like beer. Took a swig and got punched in the mouth with hops. Hate it. Just another bottle of carbonated hop-water. Really, is this the only standard for American micro-brews? Go hop heavy and forget anything else? If you're a hophead this beer is for you. Otherwise, look elsewhere.

Poured into tulip

A: A heavy pour leaves me with a pretty clear amber beer with streaming bubbles and a two inch beige head with large bubbles that slowly pop and decrease the height of the head.

S: The aroma is a very even blend of sweet malts and citrus hops. The citrus is forward but soft, very grapefruit like and the malts impart a definite caramel aroma. There's also some strange spiciness in the smell.

T: The flavor is quite muted. Not what I was expecting. It starts with some of that spiciness and grapefruit but then quickly turns sweet and finally leaves an unfavorable aftertaste of cracker. It's completely awful but based of the smell I thought it would have a little more punch.

M: Possibly the weirdest part about this brew. I don't know if they intended on making it lighter than most in it's style so bikers could chug it after a ride but it's a little off putting. It's very bubbly on the tongue and then finishes disappointingly thin.

D: Below average. The body is drinkable but the flavor is not something I would want to experience much more than this bottle.

O: I gotta say the name/label caught my eye and I probably wouldn't have bought this beer otherwise. As far as the beer goes, I feel as if it is very forgettable and I'm glad I have a Lagunitas Lucky 13 in the fridge and I live in the state of Surly Furious. Won't buy again.
