It's alright. Subtle notes of different things but not the body I was hoping for

Counterpart - Southern Hemisphere Harvest Fresh Hops - is so much better.

Had out of bottle and was close to the 100 day window so I think this is unfair to rate. Tasted a little stale. I'm sure much better when fresh

Type: 24-oz. bottle
Glass: Stone Ruination IPA pint glass
From: Barons Market in Alpine, Calif.
Price: $5.29
Purchased: Dec. 9, 2014
Consumed: Dec. 12, 2014
Misc.: Packaged on Sept. 24, 2014 at 5:49 a.m.

Poured a dark orange, caramel, clear color with 2-to-3 fingers of khaki-white, rocky head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom. Good layered spiderweb lacing on the sides of the glass. Great retention on the top all the way down. A good looking beer. (Sight - 4.38)

Smelled wet pine, Citra hops, caramel, light grapefruit, faint wet Cascade hops, earthy rye and soapy lime. Reminded me a bit of the Oregon woods. (Smell - 3.75)

Tasted a tad better than the nose. Got Citra hops, some Cascade hops, wet pine forest, soapy malts, lime zest, caramel, some grapefruit, mango, floral hops, earthy rye hops and lemon iced tea. (Taste - 3.88)

Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Bitter, citrusy finish. (Feel - 4.13)

This was a pretty good IPA for sure. It got better as it went down. I’d have it again. (Overall - 4.00)
