I was intrigued by a beer I'd never heard of before and because I appreciate pale ale's I thought it would be fun to try. The beer is fairly balanced but has a strange finish that can be detected in the aroma as well. It's almost as if the quality of the ingredients, hops in particular, are second rate.

Overall, I was not impressed but not about to spit it out or throw it away. A slightly below average beer (especially at $10.00 for a six pack)

May have had a bad batch, but tasted like chemicals.

Had another of this breweries' beers a couple of hours ago at a local bar and it was decent. So, I had high hopes for this one. Let down. However, I did get it at a quick mart, so can't expect too much. Poured with decent white head and some lace. Color is a clear amber. Flavor is light struck and a bit skunky. Hops taste a bit stale too. And maybe oxidized - wet paper. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor. Wont' finish the bottle.
