I found this in a discount bin at the Foremost Liquor store in Glendale Heights, IL for 75¢ 12oz squatty brown bottle with the bottling year printed on the neck label. This one is a 2013 vintage. I think they were being pulled from the shelf because these are winter beers and this is already the middle of August, not because there is anything wrong with the beer.

The beer poured a clear copper color with a nice 1½-finger creamy white head on top. Retention was good and it left some really nice lacing on the glass.

Great smell. Lots of citrus and lots of hops.

I was surprised at the amount of sweet caramel malt in here, but it was needed to tame all the hops. Citrus and pine hops with lots of grapefruit , lemon, and pine flavors along with some peaches for some added fruit. The caramel hangs on all the way through to the finish, no it never gets overly bitter.

Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

This is a really nice holiday IPA.
