3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12oz bottle with no mention that it was a 100 barrel series on the label. Best buy date was a couple of months before I drank this even though I just purchased it from the store a few days ago. Not sure it had anything to do with the past best by date but I was a little disappointed with this one. Pretty average IPA with the rye flavor masking most of the other flavors. It’s just OK.
