Magic Hat Blond Faith

Had one of these today and am not a fan. Skunky weird taste and nasty after flavor.

In reading the description it seems the cascade grapefruit flavors and the English ale yeast fruity esters are just a bad combo IMO.

First commercial beer I've dumped in a while...

This is my experience with their beer.  I don't think it's confined to a specific style, but seems to be a hallmark of the brewery.

Agreed, I really don't drink much of their stuff but occasionally it's at my neighbors so I've had a few of their selections and I keep coming away with the same crappy taste and wonder why I keep subjecting myself to it

+1.  Definitely a funky taste and aroma.  I guess the fact that their flagship is an apricot Pale Ale says alot.
