2.18/5  rDev -39.3%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2

12 oz bottle into chalice. no bottled on date.

A: significant amount of haze. body is dark for an IPA. head is an almost reddish white. tight bubbled. retention and lacing are

S: a lot of malt. significantly oxidized. some sort of fruitiness? dark fruit. plums.

T: similar to the nose, plenty of cardboard/oxidized flavor, not much else. bitterness is there, but the hop flavor has seemed to disappear. shame.

M: carbonation is fine and appears to be mostly derived from bottle conditioning. medium body.

D: wish there was a bottled on/best before date so i could have NOT bought this bottle. hate when i get oxidized hoppy beers. sucks for me and sucks for DuClaw cause they lost a potential future customer. easy solution, date your beers!

Had this @ the Brewpub on tap. One of their staple brews. I liked it. My only decent offering that evening. From the first sip this American-style India Pale Ale gets in your face with an unruly hop bitterness, big floral flavors and aroma, and just enough malt character to keep you from giving in and acting up.

12 ounce bottle w/o freshness/bottleing date info.

Pours is clear almond amber, moderate lite tan head, goes to a meager film, thin collar and moderate lace left on the glass.

Bold nose of malts, vanilla, and maple with pine hops in the rear.

First, this beer is quite thick and full on the body/mouthfeel scale...more vanilla and bready malts, over a relatively minor hop presence. Has the feel and attitude of a barley wine, w/o the ABV.

Ehh, decent brew, but not really lovin it on a warm summers day. I like my AIPA's with more of a citric bite and a more zesty feel. Again, this feels more like a nice option for a cold winters day...

Poured into tulip; golden orange with a minimal fizzy white head that fades rather quickly into a layer of bubbles.
Smells of...nothing. Some flat grassyness. Probably an old bottle.
Taste is the same...standard faded IPA. Malt and bitterness. Definitely faded. As it warms a bit I can get some resiney citrus and bitterness but that's about it.
Mouthfeel is well-carbonated and medium, nice.
Overall I'd love to try this fresh. I picked it up because it used a hop variety I hadn't heard of, I definitely want to get one where you can taste the hops.

Copper body faint head barely white colored head. Even lacing, Aroma has pine and citrus notes big tropical fruit as it warms up a bit. Flavor has citrus zest and all kind of hop flavors mainly bitterness and a hint of malts. Mouthfeel is medium bodied dry all day kind of hop bitterness. Overall there's much better IPA out there folks.
