Malty spicy hop flavor. Smiler to troegs nugget nectar. Seems to be like an amber ipa.

Had this on draft at Lupis with family. Tasted like an amber ale. Is supposedly dry hopped but I was disappointed with the hop profile. Decent beer but not great.

Twelve ounce bottle from the Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on November 1, 2013. Off white/tan head, hazy amber hue, firm bittersweet nose with ample hops and citrus, slightly slick texture, tasty bittersweet flavor with zesty hops upfront but not overbearing. Very good beer.

A decent American pale that becomes easily confused among the plethora of similar pale ales available. The ’hazed’ finish is more of a sales gimmick as the brewery I more than capable of finishing a clear beer.
Flavor is balanced slightly towards a resinous hop bitterness with a respectable American hop flavor suitable for American pale.

Great floral and citrus hop aromas and a really nicely balanced body. Smooth with just enough bitterness. A refreshing counterpoint to the full bodied super bitter IPAs that have become the norm.

3.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Decent but underwhelming ale, faint aroma, slight malt in the taste and some generic hoppiness. Good looking with decent lacing, but overall sems lacking.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours out a true-to-the name hazy dark copper with a little tan head. Quite a bit of citrus on the nose, I’m getting apricot along with alcohol and some dank/earthy hop undertones. As for the flavor it’s pretty average for an APA, earthy hops, some melon, and crackers. There’s a surprising smoky flavor that doesn’t quite work with the rest of the drink. Quite a bit of alcohol profile which is surprising at 4.85%. Light and frothy, feels a little under carbonated. By no means a bad beer, just underwhelming for something so beloved in its hometown.
