Poured a dark ruby red color with an averaged sized, frothy off white head. Aromas of light oranges, pine and grapefruit. Tastes of pine, grapefruit with a trace of malts. Bitter bite. I expected little more of a sweet, malty balance for an IIPA. Body was a little on the thin and watery side as well. Alcohol content hidden.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Sample at the "Beer Tasting on the Front Porch". The beer pours a hazy amber color with a medium thick and foamy off-white head that recedes steadily. Small patches of lacing. Grainy malt and fruit aroma. Medium body with flavors of earthy and grainy malt, lightly floral hops and fruit. Another beer whose character makes me question the age. The finish is toffee and more grain. Barely average overall.
