Tastes like cleaning fluid smells. One of the worst beers Iíve ever tasted in my life! Anyone that tells you they like it is a liar!

Hopmaestro (1097) - ÷rebro, SWEDEN - MAR 14, 2016
UPDATED: MAR 29, 2016 Aroma is high from the hops, citrusy and grapefruity. Taste is mid-sweet with a little spicey touch from the hops, pine, grapefruit and flowers. A really solid APA.

Itís pours golden with an off white head. The aroma has orange, tangerine and semi sweet malt. It has a medium body with a good amount semi soft carbonation. The taste starts with pine, zest, orange, rich caramel and some spice. The finish is drier with more dry citrus. Really nice.

Block (2072) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - FEB 24, 2016
A pretty straightforward APA. Pale pour with a thin head. Aroma is sweet, so is the taste. A nice balance of hops. Well rounded.

I love the Brickstone APA from a can. Citra, Amarillo and Simcoe hops never paired better. Often compared to three floyds Zombie dust. Zombie dust is a single hop APA with the most citra hop flavor you can get into a beer. The mouthfeel is changed by the amount of hop oil in this beer. The brickstone APA has a rounder, fuller hop flavor by use citra, amarillo and simcoe hops. Not as much juice hop flavor as the single hopped Zombie dust but I like the overall hop flavor better the the Brickstone APA has. Caramel malt sweetness supports the smooth, no bitterness, big hop flavor. Great example of what a american (extra) pale ale can be!

Picked up a can as part of a build your own 6 pack at Binny's. Dude working there said it is better than Zombie Dust. It is very similar. Hoppy and citrus aroma, also found in the flavor. Very good, would definitely get this again and thinking about making a trip down to the brewery and restaurant.

Nice foggy gold color, white head than vanishes quickly, nice lacing. Citrus aroma, hint of pine. Flavor follows, a bit bread at the end. Very nice brew.

I have had this one a few times. My liquor store advertises this as "just like Zombie Dust" from Three Floyds brewery. I donít feel that is necessarly true but I would rather say this is definitely for fans of Zombie Dust. It is very well balanced. Buttered bread malts and grapefruit like hop profile.The citrusy dryness shines through. Very juicy hops. This is one of the best tasty semi-sessionable beers Iíve had.
