From a bomber into a 24 oz. "pint style" glass.

A - Hazy golden orange with a couple fingers of near pure white head. Head left pretty quickly and there really wasn't a lot of lacing on this one.

S - With no bottle dating to be found, I've got to assume I got an older one. Pretty malty here. Reminded me more of a barleywine than a left coast IIPA. Grapefruit was trying to come through, but sweet caramel malts really tried to mask the hoppiness.

T - Much of the same here. The grapefruit was there, but it kept getting overpowered by the sweet malt. Pine was nearly undetectable. Bitterness was still present in the finish, but just not the flavor profile I'd hoped for.

M - Creamy and smooth.

D - Despite the flavor profile, drinkability was pretty high. The hops had certainly faded, but alcohol was non-existent and the creamy mouthfeel led to a very easy drinker.

I'd like to find a bottle I knew was fresh because what I'm tasting just doesn't jive with what I expected here.
