4.13/5 rDev -0.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 5 | overall: 4
2012 bottle poured into a tulip
Appearance: Pours a beautiful reddish color, slightly off white head. Just a good looking beer. Not many that look like this.
Smell: Having trouble getting a good nose on this. Definitely getting some sweet bready malts. Much more subtle on the hops this year. Not getting much hoppy notes in the aroma. Get a little sweet fruit when I give the glass a swirl.
Taste: Taste just like it smells, I was dissapointed with the taste. The piney taste is gone this year, sweet malty taste at the front of the toungue and leaves you with that classic IPA bitter aftertaste. Delicious but not the same.
Mouthfeel: Lots of carbonation. Medium bodied. Great mouthfeel.
Overall: Great beer but unfortunetely different this year. They either used less hops or substituted some. Either way still an american classic and a great beer.
Serving type: bottle
