look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

22oz bottle poured into a Bruery tulip.

A - Pours a translucent, slightly yeasty/dirty looking pale amber color with a short lasting finger high cap of rocky white foam that leaves behind a sticky coating of lacing on the glass.

S - Sweet maltose combined with tangerines and oranges, touches of caramel, a bit of yeastiness, mild hop bitterness. I don't see a date on the bottle, but the aroma indicates there is probably at least a couple of months of age on this bottle.

T - Malty sweetness at the base with the same citrusy mix of tangerines and oranges taking the lead in the flavor profile. Mid level hop bitterness - clean but without much punch. A touch of booziness.

M - Lightish medium body with a lighter carbonation level. An earthy hop bitterness that is bit on the dull side persists thru the finish. Malty, worty start up front clashes with the bitterness.

O - To be fair, this doesn't seem to be the freshest bottle, but I have no date code to confirm or deny this. Pretty blah for an IPA with dull hops and a heavy malt presence that overwhelms a bit and clashes at times with the hops that are there. I would try this again in hopes of getting a fresh bottle, but won't go out of my way either.
