4/5 rDev -3.4%
12oz bottle (bottled 7/18/2011) poured into a tulip. Amber color, thick white foamy head that leaves behind sticky lacing.
Aroma is citrusy piney hops - maybe a little muted in this 4-month-old IPA.
Taste is relatively malt-forward: sweet fruit, caramel/crystal malt, & bitter hops with a sharp crisp finish.
Overall this is a well-crafted IPA but a little on the maltier side. This can be partially attributed to this beer's age, but even fresh I think its balance tilts toward malt vs. hops.

3.98/5 rDev -3.9%
Look: Orange in color with a 1/4 inch off white head and ok retention and some spotty lacing
Smell: The nose is very floral and carries a candy sweetness that I associate with midwest IPA's
Taste: Very similar to the nose but with a bit of a caramel background
Mouthfeel: Medium body and medium carbonation
Overall: I have said it before and I will say it again midwest IPA's just fall short for me
