Clear amber color. Moderate head that settles to a thin layer of fine bubbles. Leaves some slippery, spotty lace. Smells like a well-balanced pilsner; lots of caramel and a touch of hop bitterness. Far more bitter than the smell would indicate--it dominates the buttery dry malt flavor. The aftertaste is bitter without any of the subtleties of the finer hop varieties. For the style, this has a rich body with an expected level of carbonation. Overall, a very pleasant APA.

Malt on the nose. Medium head. Clear copper color. Smooth and drinkable with just enough cascade hops. Had this across the street from Fenway park in Boston with Martin. F Avey---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a clear golden with a small white head that leaves nice lacing. Nose is moderately fruity from the hops. Taste is fruity as well, moderately bitter and a touch too sweet with a few toasted cereals angles I’m not too sure about. Body is light-ish and carbonation moderately high. OK.

blipp (8260) - La Mesa, California, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Draft. Pours gold with a white head. Fruity citric hops, a little bit of that dirty citric hop action, with some pale malts and mild bitterness. Not bad.

On tap at the Salem location. Pour is clear orange with a small tan head and sticky lacing. Bready, grainy, doughy, slightly grassy, and goopy aroma. Taste is grassy, bready, light lemons, some weed, and doughy notes with a medium bitter finish. Medium body with high carbonation. Run of the mill pale.

Leighton (18668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 17, 2015
Can in Salisbury. Pours mostly clear gold with a frothy, off-white head. The nose holds musty grains, lemon, some citrus rind. Light sweet flavor with prominent citrusy tartness, some wood, berries, earthy hops; seems like this beer is infected. Light in body with average to lively carbonation. Finishes with some lemony tartness, mild grass and wood, some berries, damp earth. Quite interesting, though certainly not anywhere near as intended.

"i’m gonna have to do some research and find out what hop is the ass hop, or maybe there’s something else going on. slight aroma and flavor of bitter ass. not as prominent as, say, the Jospeh James pale ale, which was wretched and smelled like a fart, but this ain’t a good beer either. some pleasant bitterness really the only decent thing going for it. average at best, but really, that’s even a stretch."
