I hate this beer. Hate, hate, hate this beer. It’s billed as an APA, but its taste is sweet and musty. I usually have to pass out in a basement and wake up with a mouth full of cat hair to get the taste that this beer leaves in my mouth after just a few sips. I do not like this beer.

Sample at APN. Pours amber, tons of piney hop. Caramel malts, well-balanced, finishes nicely.

nuplastikk (5668) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Filtered tan-orange body. Steady thin white head. Warming alcohol tones amongst a creamy golden malt backbone. Respectably hopped. Not my favorite style...the high ABV Pale Ale that is. OK.

different...but good, a great ale for all day drinking. the second fermentation of REAL grapefruit is what really makes it stand out. had it at the great taste of the midwest outta cask.

Perfect beer. Great aroma, head, and mouth feel. If you have one beer at Fitgers, make it this one.

On tap at Fitgers. A nice pale ale. Subtle hop flavour. More flavourful than most Pale Ales. Decent.
