Golden, hazy color sprouts soapy white bubbles which dirty my glass. Piney hops (supplemented by malt) fill the air. Caramelized malt and West Coast hops galore on the palate.
Viscous body rocks my world. Smooth, drinkable, and totally delicious -- noticeably improves as it warms. Big fan.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Extra bottle in a trade with? Sorry I misplaced you, but thanks for the opportunity!
Pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a decent sized creamy white head that persists for quite some time before leaving some nice lace on the sides. Aromas of floral and grassy hops with hints of pine and citrus dominate the nose. A solid hit of caramel bready malt with lots of fruity esters and a hint of ethanol. The flavor is sweet bready toffee and caramel with less hop flavor than the aroma suggested. Citrus and pine flavors are moderate and the bitterness is moderate to high. Medium body with a fairly drying finish, moderate level of carbonation and a slick sweet resinous mouthfeel. Decent IPA, a bit old school, but a bit rough around the edges. I could drink this, but would probably choose something else first. No bottle dating is a turn off, I wonder about the age of this one actually.
