12 oz bottle. bottled on 03/03/14.

A: pretty muddy, a lot of haze on a dark orange body. very frothy slightly off-white head. bubbly. good retention. lots of lacing. don't like this haze though...

S: bright and tropical. a little bit of coconut. not oxidation, but there is a soapy aroma in there. I take that back, this is oxidized. a cardboard blah flavor.

T: not very enjoyable on this front. that cardboard shit flavor becomes more and more prevalent as I keep drinking. grainy. unpleasant.

M: carb is a little low. medium bodied.

D: only a month old and it already turned to complete shit? that's a huge fucking pass from me. reminds me of a homebrew and I mean that in a bad way. really bad. step your shit up clown shoes.

The problem with this beer...it's more of a malt then an IPA. It poured and looked more malty then a pale ale.

Appearance: Nice dark, malty color. (My favorite part of the beer)
Smell: Apricot, figs.
Taste: Malty, hops are weak (to me, i love hoppy beer)
Mouthfeel: Filling
Overall: I would not order this IPA again.

I was happy with this beer, It poured a smei-amber color with a small whitish head.
The aroma was definitely hoppy, but you would know its not a very hoppy bitter type of IPA, just enough. The typical grapefruit and citrus nose came right through during each sip.

I was very surprised just how easy this one was to drink. It was so drinkable, sort of difficult to imagine for a beer with a 8%ABV.

The mouthful was very nice, not over the top, not too big, not too light, just in the middle.
The aftertaste was very good and clean.

The best I can say is that is that I enjoyed this beer, I will have it again My only reservations, would be in the price. There are many other 4packs out there close in prize that I would first gravitate towards.
