[Original rating 2015-09-27] Draft at the PVD (Warwick) Sheraton bar. Pours hazy gold with a thin white head. Weak aroma, mostly metallic but there’s a little citrus and straw in there. Taste is mostly just bitter with a little earth. Not horrible but I won’t be having another.

I tried this at Cook Clarke's in Newport, Rhode Island. It poured a hazy orangish with white head that left a spotty lace. The scent had hop hints that included some citrus flare. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink with some fruit notes present. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its a decent beer.

This was poured into a nonic pint glass. The appearance was basically a slightly hazy burnt orange color with no head nor lacing. The smell had a sweet citrus to bitter citrus over top of sweet caramel malts. The taste was mainly sweet through the hops and malts. There’s a decent background of bitterness there, it’s just not substantially over the top. There’s a lingering sweet hops to malts aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light to medium on the body with a fairly decent sessionability about it. Carbonation runs like an AIPA, substantially smooth enough to fulfill a nice bitterness. Overall, nothing bad, it’s just nothing over the top. Could make a decent grilling beer.

Tasted a bit thin. There was kind of a smell yeast maybe not sure. Thin mouth feel not much bite a little dry at the end over all kind of mheh. Not the worst I've had and I'd drink it again if it was offered. It was hyped up to me as being like Anti Hero, ah no.
