This is a very hearty pale ale. It is quite hoppy which I am not a fan of because it comes across as bitter to me. It really has that earthy factor and even a bit nutty.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11 months old, and actually tasty.
Appearance: Pours looking super hazy. When held up to the light, the center of the glass is orange while the sides of the glass are more yellow. Nice off-white head sticks around, as does the lacing.
Smell: Unusual. I’m not sure what it is. Almost smells like a wet trunk, but it somehow manages to not be disgusting. There’s a nice malt and hop aroma buried beneath that odd smell. Not the highlight of Pandemonium.
Taste: Gives the wet trunk vibe as well, but it’s quickly made up with a nice balance of hops and malt. The finish is bitter with some bready malt flavors. Quite enjoyable.
Feel: Has to be the highlight of this beer. This has a pretty creamy feel, and also yields some nice carbonation.
Pleasantly surprised. I liked this beer more and more with every sip. This doesn’t taste much at all like typical pale ales I’ve had in the past, so I recommend it pretty highly for that reason alone. Interesting for a pale ale.

Color is amber. Aroma and taste are fruits, caramel, malt and hops. Nice bitterness, not just bitter for the sake of being bitter. Nice drinkable beer
