I got this bottle knowing it was bottled 7 months ago. The malt has taken over. I will review this beer again with a fresher date. Overall it could be worse. I get a slight orange juice feel, and taste.

Poured into a stemless wine glass.

a- transparent orange, almost has a pinkish hue to it, very soft. Thin head gone quick, oily. Spotty lace if at all.

s- sweet piny hop...soft alcoholic citrus.

t/m/o- fairly light bodied, but on the boozy side. Watery pine cone hop flavors. Not sure of the age on the bottle. Ok beer, but in a world of amazing IPAs and IIPAs why drink an ok one?

Hoppy, Citrus, Pine, Cloudy, Dry, Bright. If you are looking for a strong IPA then you should give this a try. I wish it had more nose but the taste makes up for it. It has a light and small white head that doesn't last for long. The first thing you get is the pine, almost a sap flavor which transfers to a bitter citrus taste My burbs kind of taste fruity, like plum or peach which is nice.
