I saw four packs bottled on 6/14 sitting on a case packaged on 7/13. So i lay the four packs aside, open up the case, and pull out a four pack. Goes to show how it pays off to look for dates!!
Poured from a bottle into a snifter at around 45°F
Appearance: Hazy golden color with a very small off white head. Not extremely impressed by the look. But looks are deceiving
Smell: Now this is what I call balanced! One part citrus hops and one part toasted malts.
Taste: Bright citrus and pine upfront, toasted malts in the middle, then the citrus and pine again in the finish that lingers on the palate.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied; Low carbonation, smooth with a dry finish.
Overall: I'm becoming more adapt to the straight on fruit bomb IPAs, which this almost is, but not quite. However, it is extremely balanced. So much so that id consider this one of the most balanced IPAs iv had. The bright citrus notes play wonderfully with the toasted malts. The citrus really opens up more once it warms a bit. However, this is not up there with my absolute favorites in the style, but I highly recommend it for someone who enjoys a well balanced IPA. Cheers!
