No a very good pale. Pours a nice cloudy orange color. No smell whatsoever. Taste is metallic, with a very weird hops. Leaves a gross aftertaste. Had on tap at the brewery. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

July 25th, 2014 - We continue down the line of tasters here at the Santa Cruz Mountain Brewery, like an execution line, gobbling down the beer one at a time, and now it is the Glacial Pale Ale’s turn. The scent is light and hoppy, with a pronounced note of pineapple, but the flavor is heavier, sweeter and danker. Curiously, and wonderfully, there is also a heavy hit of spices like clove, and a powerful weedy note. Whichever hops they picked for this, it is expressing itself to the fullest, and while this is good, it is a striking change from the previous two samplers which were far milder and weaker.

This is a reasonbly good pale ale, refreshing, citrusy, all that, and very drinkable. But it suffers from a certain flatness of palate. I find the label a bit messy, too. Still, worthwhile.

"eh. not a very good pale ale. luckily just had a brewfest sample and hadn’t really paid for it. a light mix of bready malt and herbal hops that don’t quite mx. aftertaste was lacking."

Tap. Copper colour. Some citrus hop aroma and flavour. Not a very good pale ale.

Tap. Pours hazy pale amber, no head, no lacing. Aroma is caramel, pine, floral, citrus. Flavor is light sweet, light bitter, floral and citrus. Light body, flat. Meh

Cloudy orange. Light orange nose. Taste is thin, grassy, light aromatics. It’s a weak beer but nothing off about it. Pretty solid

On tap @ Santa Cruz Mountain Brewing. Clear golden pour with a white head. Aromas of orange peel, some grass, and bready malt. Kind of lemony, too. Flavor is lightly bitter. A fair amount of grass, orange peel, and a bit of lemons. Maybe some white grape and a light bread note.

From bottle to pint glass. Weird metallic and cardboard aroma with some earth. Nice looking enough hazy deep orange with white head that leaves a collar. Cardboard and malt with a dank-like grassy hop background. Lots of oxidation and phenols here. Watery mouthfeel with a dry finish.

Gription79 (2893) - Bountiful, Utah, USA - FEB 28, 2013
Poured from a 22 ounce bomber. This is a bottle of hopped infection. Spicy, fruity infection, caramel, cardboard. Not good, Footbalmed.
