I had the pleasure and privilege of tasting this bottle of 5th anniversary IPA a friend had kept in the back of the pantry for 4+ years. The malt character really over ran the hops at this point, although after 4 years I’m ok with slightly oxidized rather then "turned to vinegar" that sometimes comes with over aged beers. Overall pretty damn tasty, all things considered.

Perfection in a bottle. Explodes with hop aroma and flavor, but heavy hit of malt stands its ground. A good IPA squared.

Simply delicious. Balanced. Flavorful. Clean and refreshing. One of the best beers I’ve ever tasted. I want more.
