Man... missed out by not having a smart phone for this one. Guy at the bottle shop told me that these were just in. Broke my cardinal rule of checking dates on IPAs... however, I guess that this one is still within the acceptable window (107 days since bottled)... I guess you always wonder what could have been. In his defense, I haven't seen it there, so... Anyways, here goes. Poured from a bomber ($7.99) into my snifter. Rich amber hue with a small head (lacing galore) with a unique lemon meringue hue. Really had to work for the aroma, and was able to detect some hints of citrus, almost like lemon peel, and a bit of booze as well. Crisp bitterness on the taste, nice clean (Sierra Nevada style) aftertaste. Would have to imagine that some of the hop flavor has faded. Great, continual carbonation and a nice light mouthfeel. Excellent after 4 hours in the yard, quite refreshing. Overall, there were some unique aromas and flavors going on, and I think that I will definitely want to try this around May next year.
