Not for me. Tried a month apart, thinking that I might’ve had a bad bottle. Golden in color. Tastes too "earthy" to me. Kind of funky.

I expected more from this beer. It’s hoppy and fruity and all, but a bit plain.

bottle, thanks to skykob. pale golden with a lingering white head; slightly belgian character to the aroma with some honey and spice; medium bitterness, lightly floral. balanced and drinkable but unexciting

Pours a clear copper with a nice bubbly head. Slight pine, bread and spice smell. The caramel malt really comes through with a bit of fruit in the background. A nice touch of bitter aftertaste. A medium-light mouth with some carbonation. Very pleasant.

I don’t like IPA’s so take this with that in mind. I got this in a Left Hand Brewery variety pack. I gave two away and tried this one. Again, IPA’s are not my thing but I would rather drink a 6-pack of Chain Breaker than drink this. It smells like steamed cauliflower...seriously. Doesn’t taste as bad as it smells but it finish with a metallic taste. So far this is the worst beer I’ve ever had.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a hazy sunny golden with a thick khaki head that settles to a thicker ring and leaves some dripping, hanging lace. Nose is subtle and English, doughy yeast, lighter citrus notes, some peach, some dust, some herbal and floral stuff. Lightly sweet, quite bitter. Lighter bodied, oily, tannic and drying, with a lengthy herbal hop finish. Very enjoyable, quite underappreciated based on the ratings. Incredibly drinkable.
