3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Crown cap 22oz bottle stamped "enjoy by Sep 28 2011". Slightly past date, almost certainly a good thing for me. The brightness of IPAs built this way is usually too much for me, a little "mutation" is a good thing in my opinion. Pours pale reddish gold with a quarter inch head quickly fading to minimal lacing. Dusty floral nose, not too soapy, some orange peel and brine. Thinner texture fits beer’s overall lightness, nice bitterness not overwhelming. Muted tones of dried herbs and flowers. Bright, but not in your face. Its slight over-age has worked in its favor. Any fresher and I’d need a hot summer day to go along with it.

"Undated can, new to Reno 3 weeks ago. Tasted and smelled medium fresh. Liked the fruity tropical aroma ad flavor going on, haylike backbone, light biscuit and caramel malt. Simple, tasty. Lower scores around the 50th percentile on rb...I thought it slightly above average and sessionable. "
