Sampled from a 12oz bottle purchased at Nikki's in N Providence, RI. Bottle had a best by date of June 2009.
A - Golden and cloudy with suspended chunks of yeast (not quite what I expected from an IPA with a safe best by date). Very little head.
S - Nice toasted malt aroma and some fruity and floral hops. Not big but nice.
T - Toasted malt with bready and biscuity flavors balanced by some nice fruity and floral hops as well. Some citrusy hop bitterness too. Well done.
M - Very low carbonation (but it works well) and a moderate consistency.
D - I was a bit leery based on the suspended yeast chunks but this beer was very good. I'd love to try this stuff on tap.
