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.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

golden with moderate carbonation, thin offwhite head with excellent lacing..good hoppy bitter aroma, hops dominate the flavor, but there is enough malt to balance it. nice citrusy hop flavor.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This beer pours with a nice, creamy head that leaves a nice lace in the glass. The peculiar thing about the beer, though, is its pronounced orange/grapefruit scent and crisp grapefruit flavor.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
It’s thin and lacks any aroma or flavor development. Just simple malt and floral hops. Cloudy amber color with a decent head. A simple beer. Nothing more to say here.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
This is a fine APA. Not malt balanced, absolutely, and a bit thin-bodied. Head has more staying power and is somehow more billowy than I would expect. Bitter finish, but similar to others for the style. I personally find the packaging funny, and I’m glad observant jews (this is a kosher beer, which I suppose means that the barley was killed humanely) have something better to drink than Manishewitz wine.

above average quality pale with a silly marketing gimick.
fairly hoppy almost like a west coast APA with a touch of malt sweetness
