Obviously this stuff will catch your attention. However, the best thing about this beer may be the bottle. Good color, but the taste and aroma were lacking. I would buy it again, but just for the bottle.

22OZ bottle: Clear dark orange with a good sized head, strong orange rind aroma, weak mouthfeel, starts and ends a little bitter. Doesn't do much to stand out in the crowded American pale ale category.

Big off-whitish head. Nose of lightly floral hops, fruity, aples. Golden amber. Rather thin, light bodied, usual run of the mill pale ale. Finishes sligfhtly bitter, crisp and clean. Im not very impressed. These guys usually produce better beers...

Hazy deep amber,lasting off white head. No nose. Fizzy bland flavor with scant hops.Unremarkable

EXILE NEVER TASTED SO GOOD! Yes I bought this, how could resist,what great marketing.Middle of the road APA,enjoyable more because of it’s intent then the actual beer itself.

"Jesus...Thats good beer. God" is one of their slogans. Decent beer. A favorite at the Small Brewers Fest in Mt.View, CA.

A schlocky marketing strategy, but I still find it funny. The beer is less so, being just an ordinary APA, and a thin one at that.

Some caramel notes noticeable in aroma along with alcohol and heavy hopping. Lots of hops on the palate, good bitterness in the finish. Just seems to be lacking in substance with very little malt and body. Not a bad Yom Kippur beer.
