An under-performing IPA.
Bought a six pack and now i will have to drink the other five. Not that i can't but it is not a pleasure to drink this. Very run of the mill stuff.
Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a snifter. Less than half finger thick head that fades very fast. No head retention. Decent lacing. Some bubbles. Color is Orangish amber and with a lot of haze.
Note 2nd Bottle: Poured more roughly, has one finger thick head. Looks much better. Some retention.
One of the worst noses that i have had in a while. Not that it is bad, but it is non-existent. Have to dig in deep to get anything to enter. Bready crumby sweet malts. Some earthiness, very slight floral and orange peel. More sweet than expected.
Taste is nothing great as well. Does just fine in that hops are felt for a while and only for a while. Apparent dry hopping but one that is done with very faint hops - low on alpha and beta both - that fail to provide either a good nose or good bitterness. More balanced and malt based than what i like. No bitterness. Sweet dry finish. Malty dry hopped after taste.
Mouth feel :Medium feel. Moderate to slightly higher on carbonation. Drinks with ease but is not exciting at all.
May be i am drinking this one too late or very fresh as it has enjoy by date of 2nd week of March. Since it does not mention year it could be either 2012 in which case i am late to the party. In the case of 2013, which is more likely since i picked it from a store in Atlanta, GA, this is an average IPA at its best. Very misleading packaging.

BB second week of June, 2014.
Amber in colour with a smallish white head. Head fades fairly quickly.
Nose is not strong, but presents a mix of malt and citrus hops.
Fairly balanced, but obviously focused on hops. Citrus fruit and a touch of tropical as well. Hard to pick out particular fruits, but i get a mi of orange, grapefruit and mango. A strong malt backbone, with caramel flavours imparting some sweetness. Moderately bitter.
Medium bodied and moderately carbonated.
Overall, a good IPA. Very solid.
