22 oz. bottle, with no apparent bottled on date present. My second beer from Hermitage Brewing Co., acquired at the local beer store for something like $6.99.

Poured into a Duvel tulip glass.

A - Pours a coppery bronze colored body with over a finger of fluffy off-white head and some yeast sediment visible in the glass. Leaves behind some okay scattered lacing. Looks pretty good.

S - The smell is skunky and piney. Bready, earthy, yeast, with a good amount of caramel malt noticeable. Lightly spicy and peppery.

T - Taste follows the nose - bitter, herbal, grapefruit / piney hop presence. Caramel / bready malts. Some spicy / bready / peppery sort of rye presence in there also. Oak, wood, and toffee flavors are noticeable. I'm more than confident this beer is past it's prime, and is probably no longer a nice showcase for the Citra hops at play here. Minor alcohol content noticeable. The peppery rye presence is dominant at this point.

M - The feel is crisp, smooth, and mostly clean. Leaves behind some resinous bitter hop presence, but the hops are past their prime at this point. Bready and dry on the finish. Medium-full bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a decent single hop IPA, but I'm sure it would be much better when very fresh. Still, I would be interested to try others in this brewery's single hop series. The Mikkeller single hop series of beers that I had stood the test of time well; this beer, not so much. Like the Mikkeller Citra, this beer had lots of yeast clumps at the bottom of the bottle. Interesting to try, but I would be more interested in having it fresh.
