Can poured into glass. Local purchase.
S- muted scent, had a bit of skunk at first that disappeared after a few minutes, muted floral hops scent remaining. A little citrus as the beer warms up.
T- yikes, this can has a bit of a strange flavor. Hard to describe but it's somewhere between aluminum and ammonia. There is something off with the production here. Definite chemical flavor that should not be there.
F- thin for a beer of this alcohol content.
O- I will try again next year when hopefully they have ironed out whatever the problem is with production. I like to support the local breweries so I won't give up hope; the Snow Hole from Stony Creek I have liked very much in the past, as well as the Crumb. This is one to avoid for the near future.

Slightly floral smell and taste. Average feel. Color was light orange. Decent ipa, wouldn't go out of my way to find it but worth a try if you haven't had it. Would try it again but nothing other than average.

Impressive, rocky head that settles very slowly. Leaves large 3D chunks of lace. The liquid is orange-amber color and very cloudy.

First impression is of a refrigerator-like smell, almost like stale ice. There's a mild floral hop touch. Light earthiness.

The taste is definitely off. At first, I thought it was a strong yeast bite, but I think it's closer oxidized home brew (i.e. stored way too long). Almost undrinkable. Light body with an above average carbonation level. The aftertaste is long and quite unpleasant.
