WheatKing (1328) - Phnom Penh, - NOV 7, 2012
Massively carbonated in the cans we’ve had. Hops are citrus/carrot. I’ve never seen carrot listed as a hop characteristic, but seriously when you make an orange/carrot juice with your juicer it tastes like this. Maybe If I drink enough of this I’ll get Jay Kordich eyebrows. Malt is a bit heavier than expected, without many "ringing" qualities, where the hops and malt echo back and forth in the good APAs. Finish is tangerine.

Good, but their ESB and IPA are so awesome that perhaps my expectations were too high.

ajnepple (4897) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 10, 2016
12 oz single can as Red Betty Pale Ale, purchased at Wilbur’s Total Beverage. Medium to dark orange, slight hazy appearance with a lingering white head. Aroma of resinous hops, light pine and toasted malts. Similar flavor, adding a moderate hop bitterness. Average body with a light dry, lasting finish. OK, I guess, slightly harsh and possibly dated.

From the can the pour is cloudy and sandy colored, the aroma is bright citrus and hops, the taste is bright citrus and a good balance of hops. The mouthfeel is thin.

A fantastic pale ale. Big citrus and tropical fruit aromas and flavors that are supported nicely by a malty caramel driven backbone. Great stuff.

Fruity resin and hop aroma. Well balanced hoppy and malt taste. Quite a nice APA.
Earlier Rating: 7/29/2014 Total Score: 3.3
Light ruby orange body with foamy white head and some nice lacing. Citrus aroma. Taste is mildly bitter, a little medicinal or metallic and not as flavourful as I was hoping. Okay.

UXO (1406) - CANADA - OCT 18, 2015
Appearance: clear medium gold with two fingers of loose ivory head diminishing gradually to a thin skim, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: pine, citrus, caramel malt, light tropical fruit. (8/10) Taste: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. (7/10) Medium-light body, moderate carbonation, short duration medium bitter finish. (3/5) I was a bit surprised by the way it foamed up on opening, lost a mouthful or two. Other than that, not bad. Smells a bit better than it tastes: it tends to the watery, so it doesn’t quite have the body to pull off the hop character. The flavours end up dropping off a little rapidly, leaving a little bit of an unbalanced lingering bitter. Quite sessionable, though. (14/20)

5/13/2010 12:05:36 PM Can from Whole Foods Hadley. Hoppy nose. Taste is hoppy, with some nice malt notes. Not too complicated but goes down swell. Warms up towards the finish.
