Scorpion Pale Ale

Moab Brewery

USA

This is the 2nd beer named Scorpion that I've had, and neither was all that impressive, although this was better than the British session lager. It was perfectly drinkable, I was just disappointed because the label built it up so much. This tried to get a bit more badass, with the following statement on the label: Beware, it is known as "The Ale That Stings". What? If you're going to make a claim like that, please back it up. And don't you know it's not cool to give yourself (or your beer) a nickname? Label lays claim to 6 hop additions, but I think they were the same kind of hop. It needed a little more maltiness to give it some body. As it was, it was like really hoppy water. Maybe they can rename it "The Hoppy Water That Stings."
