3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
From the bomber this poured a slightly hazed amber body with a short-lived off-white head that still provided a good deal of lacework. The aroma was grapefruit zest, tangerines, and a touch of pine. The hop bitterness was up front in the flavor, citrusy, followed by a light surge of grainy malt, and finishing on a dry, zesty bitter note. Pretty decent IPA, but at 8% ABV, it’s pushing the line a bit.

Of course I wouldn’t see that it was bottled on 1/25/13 until I got home. I guess I just saw the 1/25 and thought "sweet!" Alas, it was bottled over a year ago. I’m getting mostly sweet malts on the nose and the taste. I’m gonna make it my mission to find a fresher bottle and re-rate this baby. I’m sure it will be great!
