Strykzone (5518) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - FEB 3, 2013
Bomber from Hayduke. We enjoyed it together via facebook chat. I rolled my bottle to loosen the sediment and it poured hazy golden brown with a golden tinted head. The aroma was passion fruit and caramel and was not huge. When tasted the fruit was a little thin and some grapefruit was tasted underneath. Passion fruit was more prominent. Malts were noticed but were light. Mid glass some fruit roll ups were tasted and later the finish was akin to a bitter. The final sips included the foam and were creamy. This was a nice pale ale and was unique in its hop profile.

Poured from can into a pint glass Appearance – The beer pours a hazy orange amber color with a one finger head of thin white foam. The head fades relatively quickly leaving just a trace of wispy lace on the sides of the glass Smell – The aroma is rather bready and fruity with the fruit being a mix of orange and tangerine. Along with these aromas comes some light yeast smells as well as a good showing of a grapefruit and pine hop smell. Taste – The taste begins with a rather dry cracker/bready taste mixed with a little hint of caramel. Right from the start there is a decent showing of a grapefruit hop taste with this getting stronger as the taste advances. A pine works its way onto the tongue toward the middle to the end of the taste ramping up the overall hop taste rather well. With the yeastiness that was detected in the nose coming at the end of the taste, one is left with a rather drier and fairly nicely hopped flavor to linger on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is rather thin and light for a pale of 5.5 % abv with a carbonation level that is a bit on the higher side. For the drier tastes of the malt and the hop blend of grapefruit and pine the feel of the brew is quite nice overall. Overall – A nice drier pale ale with a good hop hit. A good brew overall.

Pours hazy amber, short head. Aroma is light citrus hop and a little malt. Taste has a good body, a little off flavor in the bitterness. Very drinkable otherwise.

Part of an IPA/APA tasting, full pour. Yellow/orange with tall creamy head. Smells of gym socks (not kidding), some cookie/dough notes, hay, faint pineapple. Taste is sweeter than expected with lots of malt overtaking any hop qualities I was looking for. Not my favorite.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 20, 2014
Bottle:   Somewhat of a nutty malty Pale Ale, low on hops, a touch of biscuit.   Seems a little musty or dirty.   Not too bright.   Moderate sweetness.   Backside gets more nutty and biscuity.   Seems like a minor Pale with a little Brown and Amber.   Tiz okay, but not quite the Pale Ale in my book.

Can. Good aroma of citrus and a hint of pine. Medium/light mouthfeel, with a fairly bitter finish. The malty backbone is fairly robust and a bit earthy/dusty.
