"Hey, I got an idea! Why donít we take an average/mediocre pale ale recipe, bump up the alcohol&hops (ícurrent trends agreeí, as s/he points @ chart), use a ball-less pot reference to market it (again points @ chart), and get this... we donít even have to brew it ourselves (i.e. we can pay someone to do that too)!" Too marsh? Probably, I really donít know Kindís story. I read their web page, whatever. . bottle. Thereís a citrus baby-bite but not enough to hide the funky offness that is the linger. The 6er was $11.

maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - SEP 13, 2013
On tap at the World Beer Festival - Columbia on 01/22/2011. Clear amber body with a small off white head. Sweet earthy malt and hop aroma. Dry earthy flavor with light floral hop hints. Medium body with moderate carbonation.

EithCubes (4724) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 13, 2013
Bottle. Nose thick with hops, just heavy, sludgy pine and dark caramel, lighter spiciness, touch of earth under the toffee. Not much fruit but the booze is showing. Amber body with a tiny-bubbled tan head. Taste sweet with some bitterness, more notched-up caramel/toffee, densely crisp full body with alcohol popping. Touch of cracker at the end. Quite hefty and intense, but not at all terrible.

keepersj12 (2655) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - FEB 9, 2013
Nice looking amber with a thin head. The aroma has some caramel, toast, maybe some oak. The flavor has the caramel nicely balanced with a bit of hops and a little pepper. Quite dry and refreshing.

Pours a clear orange-red with a 1-finger foamy head. Smells of nuts, bread, leaves, floral. Taste is sweet and bitter, malty multi-grain bread followed by a spicy hop finish.

I had passed this up several times and decided to try it. I was surprisied. Orange color, great fruity hop aroma, nice malt and biscuit flavor. A great APA and brewed up the road at Thomas Creek!

Flavor is medium hops and bitterness, light malt, tropical fruity esters and a dry finish. Medium-light body and medium carbonation.

maxwelldeux (3489) - Everett, Washington, USA - JUL 12, 2012
This seems really skunky to me, almost like itís a lager. Pours a darker copper color with relatively little head. I donít get any hops off this one, like I would expect. Some maltiness, but in an unappealing way.

Originally reviewed: 2/9/09. Wow! I was really impressed with this beer. Pours a deep orange/gold with a nice milkshake-like frothy head on top. This retained perfectly and left nice sticky globs along the glass edge as well as perfect sip rings. Smelled of piney hops, and deep sour citrus. Great scent. I love the fruity bitterness on this one. Itís not so overpowering that itíll knock you down, but it is satisfying as all get out. Wonderfully balanced, as I can also taste the malty sweetness coming through. Mouthfeel was full and crisp. Excellent. This one was an easy drinker for sure, and though the ABV is higher, I wanted another and another. Great brew. Recommend.
