dnstone (2165) - Las Vegas, Nevada, USA - JAN 31, 2013
Pours a toasted golden color with a soft white head that settles of to nothing. Aroma is cereal-malty with some fruity notes. Taste is fairly sweet with a defined toasted maltiness...I can taste exactly what it would be like to chew the grain...followed by some nice hop balance. Really a great beer for the price.

"i had to be sure that i wasn’t imagining things, so i waited for a friend (who is a certified beer judge) to confirm what i though upon opening this beer...it smells like a**. I believe he said "who farted in my glass?" It was actually the oddest mix of butt and hops I’ve ever encountered. Poured darker than most pales with a thin head. Smells...well... Tastes better, but pretty unassuming and thin as well. There’s some nice Cascades in there among other hops, but not enough to like the beer. Another pass."

ABUSEDGOAT (2416) - California, USA - OCT 17, 2013
Pours all over the table after gushing, thanks I love that in a beer. After that it’s a slightly hazy amber colored beer. Aroma is dull with notes of expired fruit. Medium to light body, no real character. A complete fail.

penstemon (127) - - MAY 13, 2013
Deep orange with a white head. Nose of burnt toffee, orange, maybe a hint of canned pineapple. Taste of more burnt toffee, toasty nutty malt, hint of vanilla, moderate hop bitterness. I’ve never gotten more of a dominant toffee note in a beer before... and this is supposed to be a pale? Style aside this is not terrible, but I was still pretty underwhelmed.

BVery (6964) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 26, 2012
UPDATED: OCT 27, 2012 Bomber - brought back from Vegas and shared during Darkness Day 2012. Citrus hop, slight cardboard, biscuity malts. Okay, but not great. Good to try for the rating.

Tmoney99 (11070) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 11, 2012
Bottle. Poured a clear amber color with an average frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with fair lacing. Moderate earthy citra hop and small malt aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I might recommend this to a freind.

Infected bottle. Sour, band aid, totally overpowers anything it had going for it. A failure.
