3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Doesn’t really feel like a pale. Pours slightly cloudy copper with thin head. Aroma is caramel malty with marginal hops. Full bodied, caramel and sweetness. Some hops in the finish. Cool bottle - if you look close there looks like some freaky midgets and shit being chased by a sea monster.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slightly hazy amber color. Aroma of piney hops, toasty and citric notes and light grainy hints. Flavor has some malty sweetness but gradually turns drier and bitter with fresh pine-needles hoppiness. Medium-bodied.

I can see why they call this an "Almost Pale Ale" - it definitely seems like a hoppy amber as opposed to a pale ale. Caramel, toffee, and a bit resiny, woodsy hop bite at the finish. Not bad. Thanks to jerc for the trade!

Nothing wrong with this beer at all. Pretty easy sessionable ale. Some light citrusy hops up front and they give way to a bit of malt backing.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Orange pour with small head. Big hop nose with clove and bananas. A little sweet on the flavor, but still good hop character.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
From bottle. pours a dark copper colour with a reasonable head that doesn’t vanish. Typical IPA aroma, sweet, hops, citrus fruits, could linger a little longer. Inviting though. Nice bitter flavour but dissapointingly shortlived with almost nothing left on the tongue. Perhaps a little too carbonated for my tastes. Not bad but definitely room for tweeking.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2011 Bottle. This is not too bad. Very hoppy, but not too hoppy. I’d definitely have this one again.

UPDATED: FEB 20, 2013 Amber orange, decent off white head. Floral, fruity aroma, medium carbed, nice balance of lightly roasted sweet malts and floral citrusy hops, smooth dry finish. Love the label and the ’tude! LBW (Lagerboys Be Wary)
