look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Bottled on date too smeared to read, but looks like the last two digits are 13, which won't bode well if true.

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden amber with an off-white finger width head. Fair retention, resulting in a broken layer of surface suds. Lacing is small and spotty, with fair stick.

Smell - Deep caramel aroma, off-set by touches of light pine and citrus.

Taste - Caramel. Stale cardboard. Faint grapefruit pith bitterness in the finish.

Moutfeel - Medium to full body with light carbonation. Smooth.

Overall - Yeah, I'd say this bottle is well past its prime. I'm now reading on Founder's website that this beer's limited run is July-September, and considering this is June, I declare this about as dead as IPAs get. A shame. Hate to review it like this, but let this review be a reminder: IPAS DO NOT AGE WELL... DISTRIBUTORS PULL THESE OFF THE SHELVES! A definite candidate for a re-review.
