This ale pours a handsome yellow copper color with a generous but short lasting frothy white head. The aroma is off...and not in a good way. It is bitter but dirty smelling. The flavor of this ale follows suit. It is an attempt at hoppy bitter goodness but it falls very short. Instead it tastes of an ale attempting to be hopslam or huma lupa licious but falling o. Those glorious citrusy hop notes and just tasting stale, old, and tired. I can see what Oddsides is going for here but unfortunately they just don't hit the mark.

I got a can of this off the Binnys single shelf. It poured a hazy yellow with thin white head that is not leaving any lace. The scent has bitter citrus. The taste is bitter citrus but drinkable. The mouthfeel is lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall it's a decent beer.

Pours a crisp and crystal clear light golden yellow with a thin layer of thick bubbles.

Earthy, piney, grassy, and slightly citrusy hops appear in the aroma with a bit of sweet toasted malt notes.

The piney and grassy notes emerge in flavor as well, but the citrus comes out a bit more in flavor while a strong and solid toasted malt backbone provides balance.

Light-bodied, medium-high carbonation, crisp, clean, grassy and herbal bitterness.

Overall, a rather simple and very drinkable brew.
