Unfortunately, I’ve had this several times before, but the sample used for this rating was poor so this review may be revised at a later date.
This was an extremely over hopped pale ale, more so than those who know how to do it right, Dogfish Head. So much so, that this sample was more bitter than the Kangaroo Love which was sample three beers previous. Generally, outside the taste, the general mouthfeel was passable, with a little fizz and just somethign shy above water in thickness. I woudl have preferred a little more malt in this just to hopefully sweeten up the batch I’d encountered. (Tap 11/11/2006) carpediembp (9) - Lutherville, Maryland, USA - OCT 27, 2006 does not count
my favorate APA, plenty of bold flavors, a nice hoppy finish. the color is a nice amber with an offwhite head, with the added smooth taste of the Nitro Venom, whats not to love! Ungstrup (38139) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - OCT 14, 2006
[Draft at the Bowie location] An amber beer with a thin dense off-white head. The aroma is nicely hoppy with notes of grapefruit - which leads the thoughts towards Cascade, but also a light caramel note. The flavor is nice with a good presence of aroma hops, slight notes of toffee, and a fine delicate bitter finish. I also had this on nitro, which made the aroma weaker and the mouthfeel more smooth.

Copper bronze, light head and lacing. Nose of bright hopping (dry?), citrus, earth and resin. Cenntenial? The flavor is nice and dry, but the sweet and floral hops shine through. The finish is earthy and grassy with lots of grapefruit. Surprisingly hoppy for 36 IBUs which it says. Nitro-genated...or something. nimbleprop (8593) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - JUL 22, 2006
This beer surprises you all the way through. An clear copper color with white head. Very hoppy aroma with citrus notes. The taste is complex, hoppy, citrus, malty and grainy. This beer is great right until the finish which is far too astringent and acidic for the rest of the beer. This beer is aggressive which pays off until the end. Worth a try for you.

Clear amber/copper. Good head. The aroma is pinesol hops. The flavor is fairly aggressively hopped for an APA. Not bad. themadmumis (347) - Westminster, Maryland, USA - JUL 12, 2006
Excellent IPA with strong citrus bite. Stronger than standard IPA. First Growler I ever brought home with me featured this brew. Draught at Arundel Mills. Highly enjoyable! thehipone (197) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2006
A little more aggressively hopped than your run of the mill APA. Smells of fresh american hops (cirtus & pine as usual). Just a touch of malty sweetness before the hops surge in. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - MAY 18, 2006
(Draught) Pours a clear amber body with a medium-sized creamy off-white head. Aroma of cirtus and caramel. Good balance of hops and malt. jcwattsrugger (12507) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - MAY 12, 2006
on tap-pours a creamy light tan head that laces with copper color. Aroma is crisp hops, secondary medium malt. Taste is a good, biting hops, medium malt. More IPA than APA. Good carbonation.
