Bottled 6.27.14
Consumed 8.5.14

A: 4.5 Pours a reddish gold with a large, creamy looking off-white head. The head is very uniform and actually quite pretty.

S: 4 Fairly mild aroma overall which is a bit disappointing; based on the name, I was expecting quite the hop bomb. There’s some pine first with a little bit of grapefruit as well. Fresh-cut grass, dank, and some honey/malty sweetness are present as the beer opens up.

T: 3.5 While the hops were dialed back on the aroma, they are even more subdued on the palate. The flavor starts with a pretty big dose of malt sweetness followed closely by some bitterness and a slightly sulfurous finish. There’s a little bit of lemon flavor that’s pretty nice, but any fresh flavors are overpowered by malt and bitterness.

M: 4 The carbonation is nice and the body has a good feel, if slightly watery.

O: 3.75 I was hoping for a fresh tasting, hoppy IPA with little malt, but this is kind of the opposite. If you’re into malty IPAs with a fairly strong bitter element, this might be a great beer for you, but it’s not what I look for in IPAs. At 5-6 weeks old, perhaps this beer has a crazy short shelf life before falling off.

Received as an extra in a trade and poured into my Duvel tulip.

A - Poured a nice crystal clear honey amber hue with a good half a finger head that faded to leave a thin light blanket and halo.

S - Aromas of sweeter malts, caramel, acid, light metal, herbal, older hops. Not much going for the nose.

T - Taste is much more malt heavy than it should. Caramel, sweeter malts, faint faint bitter grapefruit, lightly vegetative. Definitely past its prime.

M - Mouthfeel isnt bad, lighter, smooth.

O - Overall, clearly not the freshest bottle. Bet this would have been much tastier fresh.
