1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
~Pours a light honey color.
~Distinct sweet hop scent, almost a chemical smell.
~Taste is very hoppy and citrusy. Too much..
~Astringent and dry feel.
~Its too sour and bitter for me. A stomache turner. I’m wondering if I got a bad one. Normally I like high hop beers. This one was just weird.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
A: way too light to be an ipa. Looks like a lager.
S: almost nothing. Less hop presence than the pale ale. Terrible.
T: grassy or wheaty and way too bitter. Not hop bitter--bitter face tape bitter. Gross.
M: exceedingly dry with minimal carbonation.
D: I would not have another.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2011 This reminds me of something that is not intended for consumption. It tastes like you chewed an Aspirin and washed it down with warm flavored Tea. I took one drink and the retched flavor remains on my tongue several minutes later. I’m going to hold my nose and power it down as it is my last beer and wanted to catch a buzz.
