HonusWagner (1974) - Florida, USA - JAN 23, 2016
More or less completely unpleasant. Nose is at least acceptable, with heavy layers of cinnamon and maybe a touch of gingerbread spice. But Holy God is this a mess on the palate. It’s aggressively bitter to the point of being undrinkable, and the flavors are all over the place with spices, hints of green apple, and lacerating grapefruit pith hoppiness. The clear early leader in the clubhouse for my worst beer of 2016.

Headbanger (3720) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JAN 22, 2016
Sample 12/27/14 (Brewery)-Pours a hazy orange with a small head. Aroma of apples and cinnamon. Taste of the same with the cinnamon being a little too dominant. This light bodied brew is different but tone down the cinnamon.

snoworsummer (4242) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JAN 19, 2016
Draft at the Gnarly Barley. Pours hazy amber with a fizzy beige head and sticky lacing. Tastes like cinnamon, red hots candy, and some dry apple cider. Light/medium body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet apple cider, cinnamon, and red hots candy.

Cigar city Apple Cinnamon IPA Sample pour of apple juice looking yellow... That’s a new one for me... Apple juice yellow. Anyway, it works... Not a ton of head. Aroma is mostly cinnamon and spice with apple forward qualities. There’s some hop in there but it’s either faded or wasn’t heavily present. Flavor is mildly hopped with more cinnamon and apple flavors than anything else. Why so much cinnamon? Not fantastic, but I guess it would be better if it wasn’t so emphatically cinnamon forward. 25112015

wisdomsolo (466) - St Petersburg, Florida, USA - SEP 11, 2014
Smell is heavenly! Like apple pie! Tastes pretty mellow though with some subtle fruity sweetness but you can definitely taste the cinnamon in your nose as you drink. Nice.
