3.31/5  rDev -21%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22 oz. bottle purchased at Connecticut Ave Wine & Liquors, packaged on 09/24/2014, poured into my NEBCo Gandhi-Bot snifter, drank over an hour or so

A: 2/3 - deep amber-brown coloration, initial khaki head settles into a 1/4 finger coating that persists throughout drinking; high clarity (can both see and read through); moderate alcohol legs

A: 7/12 - muted grapefruit, orange and pine notes over a moderate malt bready/biscuity aroma; some alcohol; no diacetyl, no DMS

T: 11/20 - mild bitterness on the front of the tongue; mid-palate is followed by grapefruit, pine and tangerine that is followed and quickly overtaken by malts - toast, biscuit and cracker; some mild alcohol on the back of the palate; finishes dry with little aftertaste

M: 3/5 - moderate carbonation; some hop oils and alcohol fullness coat the tongue

O: 7/10 - decent IPA but an another disappointing harvest ale - other than the novelty of the fresh/whole cone experience, I just don't understand the appeal - with the exception of Troegs Hop Knife, which used their Hop Cyclone, all harvest ales are light on hop aroma/flavor in favor of malts, which is usually boring profile (lots of 2-row and little else); it's not a bad beer but, for me, is no 93 and your money is much better spent elsewhere
