First had at BuffaLouie's, Bloomington, Indiana, on draft into tumbler. A strong effort at an American Pale Ale, but perhaps a bit hoppier (and less malty) than expected for an APA.

Rather malty, bread. Very mild citrus and grass. Balance is not quite there. An avoidable pale ale.

Serving: On tap at Nick's into a jar
Served: 5 July 2014

Appearance: Pours a hazy amber brown with a minimal head. Really not a looker.

Smell: Slight malt sweetness evident, though one admittedly has to search for it. Dank, citrus hops in the nose.

Taste: This one got better the more I got used to it, but the first few sips had a distinctively 'earthy' quality to them which made them taste almost dirty, so to speak. The earthy funk was really offputting originally, until I slowly became accustomed to it. After this, the beer drank more-or-less like a standard, if uninspiring, APA with a lighter malt backbone than most, but with a decent hoppiness.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light with medium carbonation.

Overall: Not the best APA I've ever had, and one of the weakest options for a hoppy beer in Bloomington. Would not order again, unless I was with a group that only wanted to go to BBC.
