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!

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

12oz bottle poured into tulip

Pours a lightly hazed soft golden color with some orange hues. A thicker crop of white head rests on top, fading into a light wisp of film with some scattered spots of lacing on the glass.

Soft citrusy hoppiness with orange and pear. Hints of fruit sweetness with grainy, bready malt backbone. Touches of caramel and light warmth.

Milder hoppiness up front with touches of orange and grapefruit peel. Hints of pith and pulp with some other assorted fruit sweetness. Medium malt backbone with toasted bread, grain and caramel. Finishes with some lingering grapefruit and sweetness.

Fuller medium body, decent carbonation, sticky and lingering on the tongue. This has a decent citrus profile, but it still easily falls into the "average" column.

I had this on-tap at the Arundel Mills brewpub.

Appearance: Pours a clear amber color with a layer of off white head that goes away fairly quickly.

Smell: The nose on this one is mild with some citrus hops and a touch of malt in the background.

Taste: The malt profile is a bit weird in this one. I'm not really sure what's throwing me off, but it's distracting. The hops show up more towards the finish and leave you with a bitterness through the end of the sip.

Mouthfeel: Medium body with tingly carbonation and a finish that is a bit slick.

Overall: This IPA is just alright. Not my favorite hop profile, and the malt was a bit weird, but I enjoyed it enough.
