Corked and caged 750 ml bottle served into a goblet. I like that the bottle has a bottled on date of 7/15/10. Good idea to drink fresh IPA.
Appearance: Very nice light copper color with a thin head that takes its time to dissipate. Leaves some nice lacing.
Smell: I do not get any malt with this beer as the hops dominate. I get some pine and grapefruit, my wife said she smelled lychee.
Taste: I love IPAs so this one is right up my alley. Reminds me a stronger, more intense, more hopped Angler. This a nice mild sweetness to it also. The nice thing is that the 9.5 ABV is well hidden. The aftertaste is shorter than I would expect, but very pleasant.
Mouthfeel: I like that this is a viscous beer. The carbonation is just right, prickly while being able to balance the intense hop bitterness.
Drinkability: I rate this one lower because of the price of the bottle. I cannot afford a 6.95 bottle of beer every night. This is not worth the 4 time price cost over a Squatters IPA. As a special occasion beer, this is just right.

4.13/5 rDev +9%

Served in a snifter. Vintage bottle, dated 05/22/13.
Appearance: A slight hazy amber body, It's hazy because of the pour which was pretty rough. Head almost two finger's length with your usual white color. Looks beautiful.
Smell:Bland citrus and yeast scent that is more potent as the brew warms up. Good but not something to roll head over heels for.
Taste: Complex and bitter. Grapefruit feel, a little sour that might feel a touch sweet. This might also be because of the age of the beer. Regardless very good.
Mouth: Medium to full bodied after-taste and very sticking.
Overall: Very good brew, wish I could bought more of these when I had the chance. If you see it and you love IPAs I can promise it will not disappoint you. Salud!
