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.
