This has an amber pour, but there is not a lot of flavor, mainly bread and gains and a little off flavor. I’ll try again and re-rate, not sure about the bar where I got it.

2013 bottle to a Dogfish Head IPA glass. Pours a light copper color with a fizzy off-white head and good lacing. Aroma is bready and slightly earthy/musty with some floral hops and a little raisin. Taste follows nose with the bread at the front followed by a little sweetness and ending with the floral bitterness. Medium, semi-dry mouthfeel.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Poured into a Spiegelau IPA glass, with a big fluffy white head with good retention and great lacing. Sweet caramel and bready aroma with just a faint hint of floral hops, which may be because the bottle was 6 months old. Taste is sweet at first with some caramel and honey and biscuit flavors. Some graininess that transitions to a moderate herbal than floral bitterness. Finishes with a light lingering bitterness but semi dry. Mouthfeel is creamy with a medium/full body and medium carbonation. Not bad but flavors were a bit simple and segregated. May have been because of the age of the bottle.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2013 Pours a bright orange. The flavor is missing the punch of normal IPAs and suffers because of it. The aroma is negligible. This is a soon to be forgotten IPA.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Although sweetness is relatively restrained, hints of honey and orange blossom complement hops and yeast to deliver complexity even if intensity is a bit lacking.
