Poured from a bottle into a New Belgium Globe. Bottled on ... 2012. The rest of the date rubbed off. This is old.

Appearance: An average pour produced a 2'' head. Color is amber. Lacing was quite nice.

Smell: Smells fairly strongly of sweet malts, but also has an orange smell as well. A lot of orange given the age.

Taste: Taste is sweet malts transitioning to hop bitterness and orange sweetness in the aftertaste. Flavor duration is short, with light-moderate sweetness, and moderate sour/bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, with a thin texture. Carbonation is soft to average, with a bittersweet finish. A nice light refreshing mouthfeel.

Overall: I don't know how this tastes good, being so old. Would love to try a fresh bottle!

Part of the hoppy portion of our tasting, this is one I've never had before so here is a review...22oz bomber into my Stone chalice.

A: Cloudy orange with ample head and lace.

S: Floral & fruity hops upfront...tropical fruit, citrus & citrus rind...crisp malt backbone. The floral component is very strong in the nose...

T: Still primarily floral, integrating well with a citrus character and tropical fruit, primarily pineapple. I get more caramel here than on the nose, and it meshes well with the hops. Standard bitterness from the hops, with an underlying bready sweetness to counter-act.

MF: Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

O: Pretty decent IPA, nothing to write home about but certainly a well-executed hoppy brew. Relatively, its more balanced than some, but fits within the style guidelines for a Double IPA. Alcohol is pretty well hidden.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

22 oz. bottle poured into a goblet.

Appearance - Deep orange, copper. Mostly clear. Big white head. Nice surface foam.

Smell - Muted aroma. Musty hops. Caramel.

Taste - Pine hops. Lots of caramel. Some hop bitterness. Musty and kinda crappy.

Mouthfeel - Heavy and a little bitter.

Overall - Not a lot of redeeming qualities to this. Just caramel and bitterness.

This has to be one of my favorite IPAs. First off the appearance was a very nice golden color. The aroma was fantastic! Very aromatic and intriguing. As for the taste, it had the right balance of hops and interesting flavors

I had a growler of this awesome brew and by the time the night was over most of it was gone.

great stuff

highly recommand
