A. A glowing golden orange, with an awesome 4 finger head from pour that dissipitates moderately
S. An elbow of hops to the nose, tons on fresh bitterness that comes straight out, right away and let's you what's going on, some grapefruit is present as well
T. So smooth, runs like butter. As my newly acquainted friend pointed out, there's caramel in the beginning of the sip but you've gotta look for it from the get go. Really creamy in taste, phenomenal, and refreshing representation of the style. Great hop bitterness in the middle, with smoothness all around.
This has been the best IPA that I have had to date thus far, I really enjoyed this beer, and it was phenomenal when I had it. However, I will be re-reviewing this beer when I can get my hands on some more, my newly acquainted friend explained how much different the beer tasted this time around for him...
Serving type: on-tap

A: Hazy, semi translucent orange with a foamy white head.
S: Nose is like an old ale. A really old ale. Alcohol, old malt and grains, orange, strong hop character, but overshadowed by the oldness of the smell, probably because it's three years old and under 9% abv. Also, I'm sure it's a very hoppy style.
T: Grass, pine, orange, bitter citric and floral notes.
M: Medium bodied, feels like an IPA.
O: It actually tastes good, but because of the age Im not willing to drink more than a couple small sips. I would imagine a fresh bottle being excellent, for which reason I am giving it these ratings.
