look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
A: Poured a wonderful dark orange/amber haze with a light sticky head.
S: Getting a lot of sweet malt upfront on this, there are some grapefruity hops there as well but not as there was in previous years.
T: Sweet malt very little hops, sweet sticky malt is all am getting.
Overall I thought it was a "good" beer but unlike the other years I have had a was disapointed with the lack of hops, I love the sweetness but I thought it would be better with more hops in taste.
Serving type: on-tap

This is a very good beer, but I have had better. Maybe I have held on to this one too long, but it was a bit too malty for my taste. Although the bottle promotes the balance and "control" like a raja of both hops and malts. I feel like the malts are too intense for the beer. Well balanced but for the style I would say medium to high ratings.
Color: Dark bronze, but with some transparency, also a very low amount of head and lacing.
Smell: Not as intense as a West Coast IPA. Maybe that is my favorite style?
Taste: Balanced, I got this one on sale for a super deal so I figured I would try it, but I would not pay what the original price reflected.
Overall: A Solid beer, well balanced, not as much hops going on as I would like but its not a bad beer in any regard. But, to me there are much better in the same price range.
