No can date – drinking at expiration date of 7/12/14.

In the Nose- Good hop aroma with some malt in there – not that complex.
In the glass – Light tan small head somewhat cloudy – are those some yeast chunks I spy? Slightly dark and golden with a light orange hue.

Taste – Medium body- balance to the hop-side as an IPA should be – adequate maltiness with hint of grape (as opposed to wine/sherry etc) and an essence of grapefruit, probably the hops talking here. Leaves a hop aftertaste that’s a bit rough but not astringent so not too bad and maybe good if that’s what you’re after. IMTO (In my taste opinion) definitely an ‘A’ beer but an A-. What can make it better? I like the hop profile of Gandhi Bot, so that, and the alcohol level could be reduced (it shows just a bit) so I can drink more of it.

Parting thoughts – Although not astringent, this did hint at it so IMTO that could make a difference – more noticeable as the glass warms – shouldn’t a beer get better (unless you are after that)? Not bad for Brooklyn!
