Bottle from Vino Wines. Muddy orange with large open structured off-white head. Loads of funk on the nose, some malt, ripe pineapple. Dryish palate but full mouthfeel. Dry funky end. Something slightly cloying all said, but a heady delight.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap. Moderate roasted and caramel for the malt, pine for the hops, light sweat for the yeast, with notes of light dried fruit like peaches and apricot. Head is average size, creamy, swirly tan with god lacing and is mostly lasting. Color is opaque light brown, like chocolate milk. Flavor starts faintly sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium, watery with a carbonation between soft and lively. Other than the completely polluted look of this beer I understand I got the bottom of the barrel) this IPA is pretty standard fair.

Possible new 2013 series? Hazy amber, not a lot going on in the nose, some blackcurrant maybe, some bready/hay. Tastes a bit thin, tastes like a 5%er. Not a lot to like.
