3.5/5  rDev -14.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Bottle to nonic, served cool.

A - 3.5 - Dull gold (meh) with with thick, white, textured head (very nice).

S - 3.5 - Faint aroma. Maybe the ghost of a hop note, a rumor of a malt note.

T - 3.5 - Head doesn't taste like much of anything. Beer doesn't taste like much of anything. Mild bitterness, mostly in the aftertaste.

M - 3.5 - Light-medium body. Soft.

O - Overall this comes across as an inoffensive, mild, generic beer without much going on, that you could drink with just about any meal and not have it compete or clash with anything. Except for the aftertaste bitterness, I'd almost expect to get this in a British pub it's so mild. Not at all what I was expecting.

Went back and looked at the date. Turns out it was just over 3 months old. I guess that explains it. Lesson learned - don't trust IPAs that you order online unless the vendor is willing to tell you the bottle dating. I'll come back and re-score this after I can find a fresher bottle.
