the high rating for this is just ridiculous. it's a below average beer, which means (according to the ratings) it is a well below average APA. i would never pay for this beer, unless i were in some hell of a bar where it happened to be the best option. the taste is very malt-driven, with a too much diacetyl and lightly cheesy notes.

Below average pale ale with some poor home brew type qualities to it.

Slight butterscotch, caramel malt backing with a harsh, abrasive piney bitterness. Jagged bitterness. Body is thin for style..slightly overcarbonated.

Would not recommend. No bottling date to be found.

Way over carbonated. Poured a 12 oz bottle down the side and still only got half the bottle into a pint glass.

Once it settled down, the color was a perfect golden brown.

Nice citrus and hoppy scent.

The flavor was bitter without being balanced or pleasant. I couldn't rate the mouth feel any higher because of the high level carbonation.

Bottle opened and no explosion! Enjoyed from my BT batch 001 willie becher. Brew poured a foggy sienna orange with a thin fizzy head that had staying power from the carb that steadily swam to the surface. Nose is a malt bomb so this must be on the old side since everyone talks about how hoppy the beer is. The bottle has 111414 stamped on it, not sure what that means, but this is no hop bomb. Flavor is also malty with bitterness on the finish. Not a big fan of this one, would love to check it out fresher though to give it a fair shake. Not a drain pour but if this is what this beer is supposed to be like then it is not something I would seek out again, but I would definitely give it another shot considering the nice reviews.
