I have no idea about people saying this one isnt' hoppy. They must have had something else before hand. It's definetly not bitter as hell, but there is a hell of a lot of dry hopping.
Pours a 1 finger head that fades decently quickly, but leaves a good lace and a nice cloudy orange color from the hop oils.
A bunch of dry hopping will yeild a nice aroma. This smells like raw hops. I smell cascade, centennial and I want to say perle as there is a tiny bit of mintyness in there with the citrusy aspect. Golly.
This beer is not excessively bitter, but it's hoppy. They obviously dry hopped the shit out of it. A lot of hop flavor and aroma and not a lot of bitterness. NICE IDEA! The maltyness could be a bit thicker as the hop oil dominates over the rest. There is this mintyness on the finish as well. The dry hopping is really awesome.
The malts are a bit weak, but somehow there is decent crispness within the hop oil.
Nice concept. Dry hop the shit out of your beer, but don't go over the top with the bittering. I like it.

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.
