12oz bottle. Seemed promising from the pour but once it settled I could tell that it was lighter then I expected, especially in the color. Aroma is slightly hoppy with notes of honey citrus but the flavor falls short. Light in body and flavor. Nothing special.

jcweaver (768) - VA Beach, Virginia, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Bottle. Pours reddish/amber with a small, off-white head. Aroma is all malts. Taste is mostly malt with just a hint of citrus hops. Weird soapy finish. A decent beer, but not hoppy and not what I would consider a good APA.

LinusStick (2757) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 18, 2011
A decent beer, though I would not use the word "hoppy" anywhere near this beer. Aroma was like a scotch ale. Strong heavy malt with a little smokiness. Pour was a burnt orange with just a few off white bubbles for a head. Taste was all malt. Heavy burnt caramel malt, toffee and some burnt flavors that pop up after the swallow. There is a slightly bitter grapefruit juice-like bitterness that sticks on the top of the mouth and tonsils, but that is the only indication that there are hops in this beer. Nice carbonation.

DocLock (7502) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 16, 2011
Bottle. Pours deep copper with ruby hints and a 3-finger off-white head. Nose is caramel malt, citric hops, slight rock sugary and funk notes. Tastes caramel malty, somewhat tart, very resiny and bitter hoppy. Palate is medium in heft and complexity. Good, but not as good as the pils, APA, IPA, and IIPA.

Tmoney99 (10087) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 15, 2011
Bottle. Poured a clear copper color with an average to large frothy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate citrus hops and malt aroma. Medium body with a slick texture and soft carbonation. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate duration. I would recommend this to a freind.

nearbeer (3432) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 14, 2011
UPDATED: DEC 22, 2011 12 oz. Clear, shiny copper with a lasting spongy foam. Aromas of soapy caramel, perfum-ee citrus, and coarse grain. Taste is perfumed orange, coarse Fruit Loop cereal, and a barely-saving, dryish finish of peppery resin and light alcohol. Medium body is slightly oily, sweet and lightly carbonated.

Suttree (4905) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 9, 2011
Reddish orange, nice white head. Smells nice - grapefruit, molasses, and caramel. Pretty tasty, too - nice mix of fairly prominent grapefruit and some bready, toasty caramel malt. Simple and tasty.

BrewBoxer (1765) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Bottle. Amber color. Smells of amber carmel. Color is brown amber, Tatse is hoppy and balanced. Not as hoppy as the bottle states, but a good decent APA.

From the looks of the other ratings, I must have gotten a bad bottle. This looked great with a clear amber body and a thin lacing head. The aroma reminded me of wet cardboard. The flavor had fish in it. And feet. Smelly feet.
