OldMrCrow (1716) - Seattle, Washington, USA - AUG 13, 2013
Bottle from Malt & Vine

Amber pour, abundant off-white head. Aroma of candied grapefruit peel and whole wheat bread and just a faint whiff of dust. Grapefruit rind forward on the flavor, malts coming on a bit too sweet and caramelly. A bit thick on the tongue. Pretty close to being something really special, but not quite there. I’d have thought a truly hipster ale would be drier -- maybe the sweetness is ironic, and I just wouldn’t get it.

Very hazy amber beer, big fluffy off white head. Explosive uncapping but no beer lost. Palate is smooth and a little soft, semi dry. Lagerish malt, a little grainy. Bitterish hops. Sharp peel. A little creamy malt underneath. Aftertaste is bitter green hops. Okay - a little too much grain.

thornecb (4163) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 3, 2013
Pours deep hazy gold into a tulip. Tan head tophats and recedes leaving gloppy lacing to form a meringue center. Tropical fruit and resin aromas. Pretty one-dimensional with sharp bitter earth grapefruit front to back and into the lasting pith finish.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - MAR 10, 2013
Bottle. Aroma has notes of honey, toasted cereal malts, floral hops and under ripe citrus. Medium orange amber hue with an average white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is medium sweet and very bitter. Palate is medium bodied and watery with lively carbonation. Overall an okay brew but nowhere near the $7+ I paid for it. Disappointing.

musinj6 (377) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 20, 2013
Pours a murky golden with 3 finger head. Overflowed on the pour. Heavy lacing. Biscuity malt with earthy yeast. Very strong grapefruit and maybe a hint of tropical fruit. Largely a bitter driven beer. Round, creamy mouthfeel. Sticky. Moderate carbonation. Long bitter finish. This is my kind of beer. Specific to the hop lover

mcberko (5357) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 15, 2013
12 oz. bottle, pours a cloudy vibrant orangey amber with a substantial beige head. Nose smells like a highly adjuncted pale lager, to be honest, with notes of corn. Flavour is much better thankfully, with highly bitter grassy dry hops and a biscuity malt backing. The astringency lingers on and on, with notes of dry grassy hops. Decent stuff.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 31, 2012

Bottle 330ml.

Clear medium to dark orange colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate malty, straw, moderate o heavy hoppy, grass, herbs. Flavour is moderate sweet and moderate to heavy bitter with a long duration, hoppy, close to metalic bitter. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20120928]

DrSilverworm (5022) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 22, 2012
11.2oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear yellow orange color. Very big foamy off-white head, leaving thick lace. Some grass and pine in the aroma. Hoppy, but flavor has a solid clean toasty malt aspect to it that balances it out. Good bitterness, but there is something soapy about this that is weird. Soft, smooth carbonation, more dry texture, medium body. Great pale ale for sure, has that unique european feel to it. But $8 retail for this bottle is outrageous, even by Evil Twin standards.

ngeunit1 (1555) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 19, 2012
A - Slightly hazy amber-orange with a finger of frothy off-white head. Fades down medium. S - Sweet grains, caramel malts, grapefruit, citrus, and floral hops. T - Sweet grainy and caramel malts, grapefruit, citrus, and floral hops, some resiny bitterness. M - Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Smooth, dry, bitter, and grainy finish. D - Nicely balanced. A bit different than most APAs with the grainy wheat thing, but still good.
