Bad. Just bad. Green peppers in the aroma, watered-down coffee and awful roastyness behind that make me cringe. Yeah, this is terrible. Hopefully my drain accepts the rest of my pour.

translucent good. Thin white cap, great lacing. Oily resin body, dry pepper bitterness. Front palate is soft petal and orange, thinly peppery. Mid palate is doughy, light may papery before heavy resin finish. Sticky overall, needs more balance and complexity.

Draft at the Tap Room. Poured a clear golden yellow color with a small off-white head. Aroma was a standard pale ale with a notable hoppy pine finish to it. Flavor was about the same. Drinkable.

Looks a little dirty yellow on tap @ madmex. Weird leathery appeal to it. Nice lacing. Good co2. Seems to be rather fresh although it leaves a sharper astringent bite at the finish.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at the Irish Pol. Slightly hazy amber pour with a very frothy off-white head. Solid lace. Floral citrus hop flavors. A noticeable Band-Aid note in the nose. Tastes of juicy, watery, pink grapefruit pith, unripe oranges, green tomatoes, clementines and mango sap. Numbing pineapple cores. Watermelon rind. Lemon thyme. Spicy green peppers. Though light, this brew has much sharper hop notes than expected which makes it quite refreshing.

Transfer from BA review on 10-13-13-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance – The beer pours a lightly hazed deep amber color with a small white head. The head fades away very fast leaving just a hint of light foamy lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is heaviest of a caramel nature with some notes of some grainy bread smells. Mixed with these aroma is a toffee smell and a very light floral and citrus smell.
Taste – the taste begins with a toffee and caramel sweetness mixed with a bit of a grainy and bready taste. As the flavors advance, the caramel fades a bit with the buttery toffee flavor increasing slightly. As this transitions occurs, so too comes some hop flavors of a grapefruit and grassy nature. A little bit of floral hop comes to the tongue at the end, leaving a semi-sweet and decently hopped (for a pale ale) taste to linger on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was on the medium to slightly thicker side in terms of thickness and creaminess with a carbonation level that was on the slightly lower side. The slightly lower carbonation and slightly creamier body were quite nice for the toffee flavors of the brew with them furthermore accentuating the hop flavors, making them stand out more than they typically would have.
Overall – A rather tasty brew overall. Flavorful and nicely hopped, yet still maintaining a very easy drinking taste.

On tap at McSheas. Decent fluffy white head. Light aroma with some grassy hops. Mouthfeel is light and crisp. Taste is kind of muddled. Light hops with some banana and sour grapes. Meh. Not a great Apa at all.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Subtle aroma of hop, spice, caramel , grass and floral. Taste is bold. Strong hop presence. Fruity hops and good bite. A bit earthy. It’s definitely bitter. Thick malty backend. It has a ton of elements to it. Mild strength I would say. Probably an IPA in disguise if not for the abundance of non-hop flavors. Medium body. Quick duration
