Best before 18-02-12, just made it. Is this really retired?
Appearance is really beautiful. Enormous and thick, billowy white head with a classic unfiltered cloudy golden body.
Noise is too light, not enough there. What there is of it is pleasantly sharp hops.
Flavor is crisp, smooth and balanced IPA. Moderate malt backbone with a citrusy hop bite on the finish. At 6%, this is no palate wrecker, it's just a good, solid flavorful IPA.
Mouthfeel is aspirin chalky, toothstripping goodness.
Excellent drinkability. This would make a good session IPA, like Harpoon or Smutty Finest Kind.

This is almost a session IPA, not boozy not overwhelming hops. A well designed beer. I say almost because its right on the cusp with an abv in the 5-6% range. Its very drinkable. The price was good for a bomber. I would prefer to get this in a six pack, but I have only seen the big boys around here. I love hoppy beers and this one has a good amount of hop presence there, however, its also not a Stone IPA either.
Color: Mild bronze, a decent amount of head that remained throughout.
Smell: Balance of malt and hops, not an intense hop aroma, but a good amount of floral hops.
Taste: Balanced. this could be my go to standard IPA if it were more readily available around here and in six packs. I am not saying they don't put this in six packs, but they are not found around here.
Overall: A pleasant experience, you could drink a few 12 oz beers or a couple of bombers and not be bombed. It has a nice IPA flavor, it is what a regular IPA should taste like.
