Picked up a 22ozer at 99 Bottles.

A - Pours a light orange with a two finger tan head, fizzy but fades fast.

S - Citrus, floral, almost soapy.

T - Soapy, soapy, and soapy. It's a buttery soapy mess.

D - Good carbonation and average body.

O - Yuck. what the hell? Smell and taste are just not right.

Folks at 99 bottles told me this one was worth a try. I will be the judge of that...
Bottled: unk

Light amber ale with a central dome of fine light cream and a rim of the same. Smells of, um, of, peanut butter?! Sweet acetone and esters (?), plastic and something sweet and chemical. Horrid nose. Flavor with bitterness and alcohol, some more peanuts. Medium bodied with hi carb and a disappointingly long finish that reminds me of the detriment in the glass. Really a poor beer.

A: Poured a light orange color with good carbonation and a nice white cap, some lacing and bubbles remain after a few minutes

S: Some floral and citrus notes dominate the nose

T: Starts with an immediate light citrus character backed with a hint of floral notes. A chewy caramel malt presence is tasted and felt along with a distinguished oat/bread fullness. It has a subtle amount of bitterness, pretty clean and dry on the finish

M: Light-medium bodied, well carbonated. A moderate and lingering bittering ends this beer

O: Not bad at all. If you like a chewy IPA this will deliver.
