2012 release. Poured from the bottle into a Delirium Tremens snifter.
A: Pours an orange-honey color with a two finger-width head that lingers; fairly sticky lacing
S: Smell is slightly citrus-y, with a helping of earthy/grassy hops, though the nose is very faint and honestly quite boring.
T: Taste is very mellow with a slight citrus-y character and notes of grassy hops. Finishes slightly bitter with a little maltiness and a nice peppery/spice flavor that lingers on the back of the tongue.
M: Not too thick, and not too thin. The mouthfeel on this beer is great, with the right amount of carbonation and a slight creaminess on the tongue.
O: This is a solid brew, though it doesn't really live up to all the hype that it gets on the site. Its hop profile is pretty bland for an IPA, and the only real saving grace is the nice bitter/peppery finish that lingers in the mouth afterwards. I'll get a few sixers during the holidays, but it's nothing I'd really go out of my way for.
