Bought from a Food Lion in Petersburg, VA. Not sure how old this six pack is, but there is a very slight skunk-like odor---which is odd in an IPA.
I love the color, the sturdy brilliant white head, and the mouthfeel of this brew. It's a very tasty IPA and it stands out from many other IPAs I've had over the years. This seems like a more substantial or serious IPA than others (Saranac, for instance). I'll buy this one again, and I might even look into getting this on-keg! Well done, Red Hook!

Poured into a Dogfish Spiegelau glass. Label says JAN 14 14.
A- Pours a light amber color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a full sheet of surface foam. Somewhat resilient lacing streaks down the glass.
S- Hoppy aroma with citrus notes of grapefruit and lemon zest. Trailing malt sweetness.
T- Starts off decent with a moderate amount of bitterness but soon washes away to some stale bready malt and a weak aftertaste. After that, it's just an uneventful ride to the bottom of the glass. One-sided hop character and a teasing bitterness that's gone as soon as you taste it. Drinkable? Yes. Exciting? Not the least bit.
M- Thin, almost watery but with enough carbonation to not be a total failure. Lightish body.
O- Though it's not as horrible as the score would lead you to believe, there's not much here for someone who's used to more potent and lively IPAs. This will be my beer for guests for the next couple of weeks.
