3.1/5 rDev -23.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
500ml bottle poured into my De Struise glass.... The body is an ugly cloudy medium brown, not what I want my ipa to look like. A decent tope head leaves about a two finger cap, thick lacing. Tough call here on score, great head, terrible body. Sounds like this chick I once knew... At first whiff I really dig the aroma, but as I get deeper I'm quite scared off. Mostly caramel and lots of malt, then there is this weird body odor note that almost makes me gag, light tropical fruits on the back; pineapple. Very weak grass hops on the finish, maybe its too old? Not good... The taste is also very malty, tons of caramel and mixed with pineapple, sounds like it would be good, its not. The hops are stale grass on the back, chemically, a little bitter.
This is tough one for me, not very good at all. I'd like to blame the freshness but this just got into WLV so it can't be this old. At this point I'd have say pass on this unless you know its fresh or on tap.
