look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

12 oz. brown bottle is the last of three I received in a Beer-of-the-Month Club. No freshness dating found. Poured into tulip pint glass.

Appearance: murky dark copper colored (darker than most IPAs that have crossed my lips).The beige head is 1-1/2" high and dense after a vigorous pour and never really dies. There's carbonation only at the head.

Smell: the hop scents are muted, which may be attributed to age, not knowing exactly when this was bottled. The hops are grassy and enveloped by sweet caramel malts. Beyond the sweetness, alcohol can be detected.

Taste: flavors are a bit aged and the hops don't have the bite of an IPA, being equalized by the malts. The sweetness is honey and caramel.

Mouthfeel: medium body with beneficial carbonation. I was looking for more out of balance with hop textures.

Drinkability: I would love to review a fresh bottle of this. With some more booziness, this would have been hard to decipher from a barleywine.

The beer comes in a dark reddish amber.

The aroma has bready malt with citrus and floral hops.

The flavor follows with a bready malt backbone, without being too heavy. The hops come through with grapefruit, some floral, and a bit of pine.

A surprisingly decent brew for what it is.
