Reviewed 1/8/2013. Awesome! My beer club shipment came in - thanks to Jay for the generous Christmas present! First of three bottles. 22 oz bottle poured into a Duvel tulip. A: From the look of the pour, it might either be a bad bottle - or it might have somehow leaked before arriving here. It pours a hazy golden amber color with a lot of ugly yeast particles in the body, but the head, well simply put, looks like I poured iced tea in a glass. Big bubbles, no real carbonation, and obviously, almost no head. Considering the bottle looked underfilled when it arrived, Im worried... S: This features a decent typical IPA aroma. Grapefruit rind, pine, herbs, and some caramel malt. Not bad, but weak given the lack of carbonation. T: Muted piny hops, some citrus in the midtaste, and neutral malty finish. Theres an okay IPA here (not fantastic, but pretty good); its just the complete lack of carbonation (and I do mean complete lack) renders it just about worthless. M: Totally flat, period. O: Its unfair to review it in this state, because it probably leaked on its way over here, allowing the carbonation to die out. Dont know if Ill ever get another chance to review it (considering the rumor that its out of production), but Ill definitely have to give this a second chance given the circumstances.
