3.19/5  rDev -6.2%

Poured from a can into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed yellow-amber color with a massive head of white foam with huge bubbles entrapped within. The head has a decent level of retention, slowly fading over time to leave a small amount lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma of the brew is grainy and sweet with the sweet being a mix of caramel and crème . Along with these smells comes a good showing of some grapefruit hop as well as some herb and earth. Overall this one has a rather hoppy aroma for a crème ale.
Taste – The taste begins with a lightly caramel malt and grainy taste that is paired up with a crème and sweeter citrus flavor. As the nose hinted at there is a decent showing of a grapefruit rind like hop taste right from the start along with a little bit of a herbal hop taste. The grapefruit and herb get stronger as the taste advances brining a decent hop hit to the flavor. All the while however, a bit of a cardboard/papery like taste also develops on the tongue bringing a bit of a almost off malt liquor like taste to the brew. This mix of flavors end up taking the taste to the end and leaves one with a odd mix of crème ale, hoppy pale ale, and cheap malt liquor like flavor to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is thin and light with a super high carbonation. Both are great for the odd mix of flavors and make it a bit easier to take down.
Overall – A strange brew overall. If it wasn’t for the cardboard like taste I think I would have actually liked it quite a bit. Not the best but interesting to say the least

Golden color, slightly cloudy, decent carbonation. Fruity and spicy flavor with a smooth, malty finish. All in all, not a bad beer. Pick one up if you get a chance.

Poured from a can into a pint glass. A cloudy yellow with a thick rich head and pleasing lacing. Smell is floral. Taste is of lemon and pepper, reminds me of a Belgian white or saison. Significant carbonation gives the beer a fizzy feel. Not like the Gennie of my youth!

Great change of pace, and a fine example of a cream ale. This one especially excels with a hint of dry hoppiness

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains with light bread on the nose; follows onto the palate. Light bodied. Finishes with cereal grains. Pretty one dimensional.

One of my homebrews a while back turned out very much like this. It was thin and watery with a diluted sugary taste. I've always considered it one of my worst batches ever. But now my eyes have been opened! If someone ever says to me "Dude, what the hell is wrong with this beer?", no longer do I have to hang my head in shame and apologize. My answer will simply be "It's a hijack clone. That's what it's supposed to taste like. Now drink up, bitch!".
