Bottle from liquor express. Pours light brown with two fingers of white foam. Aroma smells a bit of corn. Taste is fairly bland with a slight hint of malt on the tongue. I was hoping for some hoppiness but it wasn’t there.

zizzybalubba (1407) - Elizabeth City, North Carolina, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Sampled at GABF 2011. Yellowish-orange pour. Light hoppy aroma with a lot of caramel malt. Flavor is much the same and treads a thin line between a pale ale and an amber ale. Just ok.

BiddleBrau (929) - Fort Washington, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2011
Golden with dense white head. Sweet malty nose and a hint of citrus. Decent hop bite, dry, malt is light in flavor and lacking in body. Decent looking, good hope flavor but lacks malt profile. On tap at Zazu in Auburn, AL.

Fresh bottle thanks to Jason & Trip, Thanks! Golden pour with a nice white head. Neat carbonation. A bit of bread and caramel in the otherwise floral and citrus noted aroma. Soft hops right there at the beginning of the taste. Grains moving to a pillow, yes a pillow, of spicy, pine hops. Only at the end does the bitter set in with a final lingering hoppy finish. Soft round mouthfeel with a light to medium body. This is truly the best bottle of this if had. Who says freshness makes no difference...

Hophead22 (2880) - Redlands, by way of Wisconsin,, California, USA - APR 3, 2011
12oz bottle. Rating #51. Medium golden pour with a slight haze and a pretty big white head and some decent lacing. Very light aroma, a touch of hops and some malt. Flavor is pretty mild although it did have a nice hop bite that came through in the finish. (1573)

Braudog (5627) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - FEB 26, 2011
Draft at Pine Bar in Montgomery. Very light golden anger with a firm head. My initial impression is heavy on the malt. The beer does have a nice creamy consistency and a moderately bitter finish, but this is outside the expected range of an APA. (#4083, 2/26/2010)

Thanks goes out to the guy who looked at the label and thought " i wanna bbq that fuckin naked pig (and not bbq that pig fuckin naked)..", Lou!! .. . Pours a deep tan, with fantastic foam features.. . has a complex mouth for a pale ale- biscuit, light resin, light hoppy syrup, and pig dreams .. .man, i wish i had actually gotten naked for this beer- be one with the pig, oh well- next time .. . I really dig this, a great session and a great beer to come out and give alabama a push into the craft beer scene! .. .
He’s not gonna pork her, Russ.
