Poured from a 2 week old can into a glass. Bought from a beer store that was tricked by their distributor into thinking it was a Evil twin Brewing beer. I bought it out of pitty, and wish I hadn't. This is absolutely disgusting. Pure cardboard and sawdust.

(Draft, Handles, Pleasanton CA). Dark amber/red color. Thick foamy head, hoppy aroma, mellow and neutral taste, decent but nothing grabs you.

Pours two fingers of head on a clear dark straw colored body.
The aroma is rich grapefruit and lemon with some brown sugar in the background.
The taste starts with big lemon bitterness, but the (slightly caramel) malt quickly tames it. Great balance.
The texture is softer.
Great profile.

Lovely appearance with red under the brown color in the Stella tall glass. About the longest-lasting and most attractive foam as you'll find. Full carbonation and mouthfilling.

Dank, dark, and hoppy flavor greets the tongue. The IPA mongrel from the Amber bitch. Harsh and bitter. Quite acidic and sharp. Blindfolded you'd say it was a Black IPA from some industrial park near Portland. I'm looking for a can of Simpler Times to soak up some of the IBUs, which the brewery rates at 45. It tastes more bitter than that. Very murky and musty. Great, if you like that particular hop profile.

22 oz bottle from Best Damn Beer Store in San Diego. My review #1111 - die, infidel!

A: [4.00] Hard pour formed a 1 finger off white head. The bubbles seem uniform and small. The beer really grabs the glass when tilted and leaves some decent lacing. The beer itself is a dark mahogany color. The can lists the ABV (6.8%) and the born on date (08/06/15)

S: [2.75] Slight hop character towards pine. Maybe a hint of metallic.

T: [3.50] Not like the nose. Has an opening of piney and resiny hops - not overpowering though. Mild malt finish.

M: [3.25] Seems under carbonated. The finish is very abrupt.

O: [3.25] I wanted to like this one but it seemed to miss in almost every category. The nose is "off" a bit. It just doesn't come through with any discernible scents. The taste is one note of mild hops with nothing behind it really. Finally the beer seems under carbonated.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

poured from 22oz bomber into a tulip

A: beautiful dark blood red. great hue, khaki head about a pinky high, dissipated fairly quickly

S: light caramel, light hops, allspice, smooth malt.

T: same as smell, very balanced in all areas. just hoppy enough, just malty enough. a little sweet, a little bitter. nice mix

M:little bit chewy. smooth cold sip with a lingering bubbles with a very slight post-milk flemmyness. haha.

O: good beer, not on of my favorites, probably would not buy again, although i got it in a trade with a friend. if someone offered it to me i would take it but not gonna be waiting in line for it anytime soon.
