Pours hazy, amber in color with 1/3 inch head. Taste is deep caramel malt with bitter leafy hops. Taste is initially sweet then massively bitter, medium-light bodied, with medium-low carbonation. Taste is really unbalanced...Sweet goes to massively bitter quickly...Avoid this beer..Not pleasant at all...One of my lowest BA scored beers ever.

Strange beer for me. Smell is very bready like a lager. Don't get any hop aromas. Reminds me of a PBR. Taste is also similar to a lager like a PBR. Plenty of bitterness. In fact, all bitter, but no hop flavor. This tastes like a really bitter PBR.

Bottled 11/2013.

Pours a hazy honey orange with a foamy khaki head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, earth, and herbal hop aromas. Taste is much the same with earth and herbal hop flavors on the finish. There is a high amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer with lots of earthy and very bitter hop flavors that I don't care for too much.

Poured from a brown 12 oz. bottle. Has a pretty orange/bronze color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some light malts. Taste is piney hops, minty, some malts, flavors seem to be just not meshing well. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer.

She pours a dark hazy amber colored body with a two finger white foamy head that settles to a film coating the top of the glass and as it goes down a decent amount of clingy lacing appears. The smell starts out with a slightly herbal, earthy somewhat minty flavoring and as it warms there’s a slight tobacco I do get, all of this combines into a bitter sort of way. The taste is mainly bitter as she goes down, the same earthy yet herbal aftertaste that leaves out the mint and tobacco. It has a dry finish. On the palate, its about a light to medium, slightly sessionable - maybe. Carbonation tries to coat the mouth and tongue, but mainly settles around, it doesn’t seem like it has enough harshness for an AIPA, but then again, this did come out in November. Overall, for the most part, not a bad AIPA, but nothing spectacular.
