Cybercat (5115) - Georgia, USA - JUN 28, 2016
Taps clear amber with a fine-bubbled pale buff head. Aroma features strong woody hop character plus fresh malt and apple undertones. Flavor delivers hoppy, fruity and malty notes, a pleasing chord of tastes. Mouthfeel offers decent body and form, lively fizz. Nothing poor about this one.

kevinator (1852) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2016
Had the nitro version. Good bold beer. String resiny aroma. Standard copper color with a white head. Medium weight. Big flavors of slightly grainy malt with a bitter overlay. Not a palate-wrecker but strong.

Draught (nitro) @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad as "Poor Vato". Aroma has sweet resiny malt and tropical fruits. Flavour has strong hoppiness, menthol and grapefruit. Too much menthol here.

lusikka (7689) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 28, 2015
Draught as "Poor Vato" (nitro) @ Pizza Port, Carlsbad, CA. Pours a hazy golden colour with a creamy head. Aroma of heavy floral bitterness, spiciness and herbs. Flavour is rather extreme with itís heavy bitterness, pungent herbal notes, grapefruit, dankness and spices. Full bodied. Oily smooth mouthfeel. It seems that our poor man has lots of hops.

Eighty6 (20) - Arizona, USA - JUN 25, 2015
Poor Vato in Carlsbad location. 9% poured in full pint on Nitro??? Very creamy head, smooth with solid lacing. Canít get over this. Aroma of freshly cut lawn, slightly piney. Taste goes with mouthfeel, back to nitro presentation. Smooth dank and pleasing, peppery in the end.

CousinBrenden (131) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - APR 14, 2015
Great hoppy beer. Thick oily hop residue in flavor.....a good thing. Similar to the Russian river IPAs. Hops trickled down tongue and lasted and lasted. Awesome to say least.
