12 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. Acquired this bottle as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. "Small Batch" 471 Double Hopped IPA.
Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.
A - It pours a nice hazed burnt sienna orange colored body with a nice collection of sediment floating around and some bubbles rushing topside. Three fingers of fluffy foamy khaki head that leaves nice scattered lacing behind. Looks pretty nice.
S - I'm trying to like it so far, but this aroma is really not doing it for me. Subdued grapefruit / piney hoppiness paired with some honey / caramel malt presence, but there is a pungent horseradish type aroma that is really turning me off.
T - The taste is a step up from the aroma, of course. Caramel / toffee malts, herbal tea leaf flavors, grapefruit, pine. It isn't a bad taste, but there isn't much to brag about here.
M - The feel is smooth & fluid. Mild alcohol warmth on the palate. Medium bodied with good carbonation.
Overall, an average, if slightly below average offering from Breckenridge. The effort is much appreciated, but I was let down. I don't know if it was the variety of hops used here or what, but something about this beer was just not doing it for me. I suppose it is worth trying once, but better luck next time, guys.

Came bottled. Inch think head after pur that quickly dissipated most likely due to unclean glassware. Medium to dark orange in color. Citrus/lemon zest on the nose with notes of honey. Sweet on the front that tastes the whole way through but with beautiful bittering hops on the back end. Mouthfeel is medium but goes down syrupy. All around good beer and packs a punch. Hides the alcohol well with its abundance of flavors.
