I liked it. This had some age on it and the hops were citrus and upfront. Tan-orange color with a nice foamy head. Good feel. Bold hops up front with slightly sweet hop balance. deyholla (11749) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - JAN 4, 2014
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber wit ha bubbly tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of very earthy pine with underlying biscuit and bread notes. Flavor has the same very earthy pine note that dominates but has just a touch of bread underlying. OKplus (787) - Oklahoma, USA - JUN 7, 2013
A - Pours a ruddy copper with huge chunks of sediment floating around. 2.5 fingers of kahki head
S - Lots of citrus and caramel. Alcohol and bready yeast comes out as it warms.
T - Astringent grapefruit is aggressive and bitter. Toffee/caramel malt, hints of berry fruit. The grapefruit dominates throughout. Finishes with some dank mustiness.
M - Heavily carbonated, light to medium foamy body.
I couldn’t smell any but I definitely tasted some musty funkiness. It actually wasn’t that off-putting though i think due to the aggressive hopping. The ABV is pretty high for the style. This is just a strange brew.

American Pale that drinks more like an IPA. A decent beer, but a little malty and way too sweet for me. kp (10882) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - DEC 25, 2011

Bottle - named as a "pale ale", but on the label says American IPA - definitely more like an IPA. Great hop flavor, good balance, nice dark amber color, good foamy head. Pleasantly surprised, very good beer! alexsdad06 (10473) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Bottle. The first 8 minutes consisted of a steady stream of foam rising from the bottle. What was left had a hazy amber color. Aroma and flavor were blurred by the tell tale signs of infection. Only small hints of caramel malt and fruits. This was not good. gururyan (727) - Stillwater, Oklahoma, USA - OCT 30, 2010
I had to mop the counter and floor after opening and pouring this one. I’m not sure what’s going on with it, but I won’t be buying any more. ChainGangGuy (4896) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - MAY 16, 2010
Appearance: This beer set a daring, new precedent for overall gush time. Many a noble paper towel was sacrificed in the clean-up effort. Minutes later, a highly hazed, dark amber body with a tall, off-white head was poured from the remaining beer that didn’t end up on the table, the floor, and my formerly nice, clean pants.
Smell: Smells like a Brett-dosed pale ale, with notes of pale malts, bread, light caramel, haunted house cobwebs, antiseptic, and soiled hotel linens.
Taste: Same. You know, maybe they could put a positive spin on this and take things the Jolly Pumpkin route. Just a thought.
Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Nothing but endless fizz and foam on the carbonation side.
Drinkability: Ugh. I’ve been told "Safety is Job One," but maybe these Company Men need to focus a little bit more on quality assurance. Let this serve as a warning to future consumers as well as a stern, furrowed brow "ahem" to the folks at Battered Boar. mar (5423) - Dallas, Texas, USA - MAY 1, 2010
