No freshness info anywhere on the bottle.

a: Slightly hazy golden copper; poured with a small, fizzy head.

s: Plenty of caramel, lesser amounts of citrus rind, and a little pine. Not very aromatic overall.

t: Mirrors the smell for the most part. The citrus comes on a little stronger and the sugary caramel isn't as potent.

m: Relatively light in body and carbonation.

o: Not bad, but there are too many better ipa's with easy to read freshness info to make this worth buying.

Dark gold to light brownish colored beer. Light white head on top with some lacing.

Lots of caramel malt aroma up front with some medicinal/citrus hop aroma underneath. Sugary sweet smell continues, almost like chocolate.

Caramel malt flavors lead the way with the first sip. Medium hop bitterness backs it up. Slick, oily medicinal hop flavors round out the taste.

Medium body, good mouthfeel with a semi-dry finish.

More caramel forward than I prefer in an IPA. This leans a little heavily towards malt and away from hops. The bitterness is nice and the aftertaste is clean. An easy drinker but could use a bigger punch from the hops.

Pour - auburn red with a half inch foamy top with a tint of yellow.

Smell - light caramel smell with a bready aroma

Taste - very little hops but lacking the extra kick of flavor. it is medium bodied beer with a malty feel.

Overall it is not a bad beer per say, but it is not anything like what an IPA should taste like. I definitely thought it would be hoppier because the label even says "climb it if you dare".

A- Pours a slightly hazy brownish/amber body with a thin 1-finger head that doesn't last too long. Some decent lace though.

S- Sweet caramel, biscuity, bready, some black pepper, and a sweet citrusy aroma.

T- Peppery, biscuity, and caramel malts right away. A little spicy flavor as well. Not really too much in the way of hoppy flavors. A little of a candied sugar/Belgian yeast flavor(though I know there's none in there).

MF- A little on the lighter side, but still almost a moderate body, not too bad.

O- Not a bad beer at all, but not very good for the style. Very little hop flavor or aroma and all the maltiness make it almost more of an amber ale.
