look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

Bottle - decanted into a pint tumbler

A - mediocare head...quickly fades...mild lacing

S - bready malts, faint lemon-grassy citrus, not impressive for an APA

T - Same as nose with some not so pleasant astringent bitterness. Very boring. Not a whole lot going on

M - Slightly soapy oily quailty...creamy...good mouthfeel but thats about all it has going for it

Overall - The second bad pale ale I'm reviewing today. I had high hopes for this one too as Fegley has produced some great hoppy brews. I suggest sticking to them on tap and as fresh as possible (probably only at the brewery). Their bottled offerings have been disappointing. I will not be buying any more fegley's bottles.

Hate to be a prick but totally avg stuff. Smells and tastes like the Junior Varsity. I threatened to drain pour but decided to muscle thru. Not sure that was the right decision.

Not impressed at all. Only one flavor profile no head which means no lacing light bodied.
I would not drink again but if you like very bitter very hoppy beers, this is the one for you. I chocked it down but just not my favorite. Slightly disappointing.

look: 3 | smell: 4 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Appearance - orange hazy color. No head whatsoever on this beer.

Smell - citrusy. Smells like a mix of oranges and grapefruits. Actually smells quite nice.

Taste - unfortunately it really just does not live up to the smell, or any of the other average pale ales on the market.

Mouthfeel - average

Overall - I really don't think I would drink this again, nor would I recommend it to friends

Date: July 9, 2015... Glassware: Barley Creek pint... Occasion: sitting in between storms, enjoying thirsty Thursday with me, myself, and I... Appearance: a darker amber body than expected--considering its name--with little effervescence; off-white head pours thin but creamy, flattening to a reasonable quarter-inch; ling becomes sporadic but visible.... Aroma: pleasant lemon, citrus and freshly mowed hay; aromas are faint and suggest little malt presence or balance; some odd funk catches at the profile's end, turning a decent allure to a debatable one.... Palate: smooth, fizzy at the throat and a bit warming; creamy at the start, with a little sizzle at the teeth--thin in the middle, with an equally soft aftertaste... Taste: lemon zest battles some earthy, malty undercurrents--both may be losing; light bitterness cannot create a strong profile, though the citric hints of grapefruit and melon give the tastebuds something to contemplate--not a pale ale with a vast array of talent; the faint hint of flowers at the back end does leave me with a desire of another sip... Overall: Not sure how proud Franklin would be knowing he adorned this bottle--Yards offered a much better brew for Ben's image to plug; a decent beer to compliment chips or pretzels, but not much else to say...should I end up in Allentown, I would definitely try Fegley's other offerings before coming back to this...
