22oz bottle, best before date of July 2013..So in other words I have no idea when this was bottled.
Pours hazy brass with a copper hue and an inch-plus head. Plenty of stringy lacing and a partial skim coat for the duration.
Aromatics lead off with pine, grapefruit, and cut grass. Hoppy enough for an IPA, but not a IIPA.
Medium bodied with a crisp, zippy mouthfeel.
Pine-rubbed grapefruit and a hint of wet hay start the palate. Light malt and a solid bitterness offer some balance.
Finishes dry with lingering pine, grapefruit, and a bit spicy.
Pretty mediocre for a IIPA. The combination of hops is nothing spectacular and the nose is lacking in particular.
