Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - JUN 26, 2006
Clear and shiny light orange pour with a thin but very persistent cap of butter colored head. Aromas of oranges, candy, and a slight yeasty/Belgian funk, tart and estery. The tartness in the aroma makes it into the flavor, especially noticable on the roof of my mouth. Pleasantly bitter, balananced with a touch of sweetness. A little bit thin. A different sort of APA, but no really shining attributes, and not as clean as I expect for the style.

Bottle at Galileo Cafe, OHare Airport, Chicago. Hops and spiciness apparent. Definite notes of black pepper. Akin to Sam Adams in flavour but not mouthfeel. Short, easy finish - great alternative to all the macro crap available at the airport if youre passing through.

UPDATED: DEC 4, 2006 Bottle: The sweet malti aromas are salivating though the tasting experience was mediocre. Dont get me wrong, I like this beer and would buy it again... it is a nice English bitter style, but comparatively to other great beers, this one lacks complexity. The aroma and taste are great but the beer could use some extra body, perhaps another fermentation to take it to the next level. Again, its a good beer with the potential to be great with minor adjustments, one that I recommend.

Good pale ale, but too little hop taste compared to their IPA. Part of variety pack.

Hazy, copper color, with a tiny head and minimal lace. Inviting, clean citrus aroma. Flavor is dominated by mild citrus hops, but there is a definite malt presence, as well. A sublte bitterness in the finish. Kind of dry, with nice carbonation. Quite refreshing.

Bottle from Sean, thanks ass bandit. Pours out a light brown to reddish color with a little head on it. Smell is light hoppiness with some grassy notes. Taste is smooth and refreshing with some sweet notes. Has a little bit of a bitter flavor with some spicies. Not really outstanding, more just a mediocre ale, but it would be about the perfect session beer. Thanks Sean.
