3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
22oz bottle. Should’ve drank this over a year ago, but it got lost in my cellar, so I won’t ding it for age. Tasted just like what I thought an 18-month old brown IPA would: Carmelized malt, dulled hops, hints of oxidization. Do not age this!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Originally rated on 5/31/14. Poured a mid to deep brown body with a finger or so of light brown head.Aromas of grapefruit, and pine hops with hints of chocolate malt as it warms a bit.Flavor has some earthy hops in the front, with some dark malt and nuttiness on the finish.Medium, creamy body with medium carbonation.Overall its unimpressive.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle into tulip. Dark amber, somewhat sparse cream head. Bit too cold initially, seems like a more or less typical IPA with a darker, malty body and reasonable not overly hopped profile. As it warms up, the impression holds, with a touch more dark notes, like light chocolate in the mouth and a slightly earthy scent. Overall, kind of a brown ale-IPA hybrid, fairly easy drinking but rewarding a bit of attention too.
