Im not sure how you could make a beer this bad accidentally let alone intentionally. No aroma whatsoever. Its best quality is that it looks like a beer. Tastes of the dankest, funkiest hops possible. If you can use leftover stems to bitter a beer this is the beer that just may have done it. I give it a 3 overall because Im pretty sure it isnt poisonous.

Can. Pours a clear orange with a light gold hue and a white head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a strong biscuit and earthy grain with a hint of grass backing. Flavor has lots of bread and biscuit with grass and a hint of earthy citrus.

83 cent can from Trader Joes. Canned as Boatswain Double IPA. Pours orange with a large beige head. Aroma of citrus, light spice, bubblegum, glue, coriander. Meh.

(12oz can) - Soapy looking head. Clear body the color of dark golden with orange mixed in. Light aroma of rubbing alcohol. Flavor is unpleasant. Sort of oxidized with bitter traits. Lingers on the palate much longer than Id hope for. Thankfully I only bought a single can.

$2.29 bomber from Trader Joes. Mostly clear orange with an average white head and lacing. Aroma is sweeter with oranges, pine, yeast, and bubblegum. Taste is make forward. Sweet malts blend with mild citrus and pine. Very thin and bland overall with a dry finish.

muzzlehatch (4937) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2016
22 ounce bottle (as "Rhinelander" Imperial Jack) picked up at Woodmans in Beloit for the ridiculous and mind-boggling price of $2.50 and consumed cold from the fridge from a Flying Fish pint. Pours a small to moderate white head atop a light amber, very clear body, leaving bare hints of lacing as it decays with moderate speed...weak sugary nose - brown sugar and maybe honey, a hint of thyme, some plastic qualities...surprisingly not as sweet on the tongue, though still a bit sugary - some woody/dry qualities throughout, a bit of caramelized malt, just a touch of sourness and acidity...dry finish, somewhat syrupy mouthfeel, low to moderate carbonation. I was kind of expecting horrible after my last couple of Minhas experiences, so with those low expectations...well, its passable at best.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2016 Smell is great. The like a strong bock with a very bitter finish. Just a little too strong for me.

Ungstrup (36409) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 4, 2016
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a lazing beige head. The aroma has notes of malt, alcohol, and over ripe fruits. The flavor is sweet with notes of straw, malt, caramel, and over ripe fruit, leading to a bitter finish.

kevinsenn (2154) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 5, 2016
Bottle from Trader Joes. Floral fruity aroma. Caramalt, resin, pine, and some citrus notes in the flavour. Bitter and somewhat boozy finish.

puboflyons (3327) - Allenstown, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 30, 2016
From the 650 ml. bottle "Trader Joes" batch. Orange amber pour with a quick lasting white head. The aroma brings out a musty cellar and perfume character at first with a kind of floral and burnt character. Medium body. The taste seems to have a metallic and odd malt character with little in the way of hops. It was just boring to me.

pictoman (1046) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2016
Poured from 650mL bottle. Slightly hazy light orange with minimal off-white head. Cereal corn-like malt with very subtle hops, mild metallic notes. This is the budweiser of DIPAs.
