3.55/5 rDev -6.3%
look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
25oz to a snifter, bottle date is smudged, sometime in September
Pours a very dark and transparent gold with red and orangish hues. Two generous fingers of head sport a good retention rate, moderate/high carbonation stemming from the bottom of the glass, good lacing. Really good looking
Smells a bit malty, age may have got to this one. Strong caramel and bready malts that're a bit sweet. Hops are still around but not nearly as dominant, spicy pine and and citrus finished with a bit of alcohol
Taste is a bit more balanced, spicy earthy pine with a splash of citrus followed by a strong caramel malt. Finishes with a pretty heavy taste of alcohol. Everything sort of melts into each other
Feel is a heavy body for an ipa, medium bitterness with a dry finish. Drinks pretty warm, the booze is really present. I can finish my bottle, I won't want anymore than that
Overall not terrible, just a little heavy in the wrong places. Being at least four months old doesn't help either

4.13/5 rDev +9%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25
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!
