12oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap and best by date of 10/20/2014 poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours amber with a slight haze and 1/2 finger of head with a full lace down the glass

Smell: Piney hops and slight floral note

Taste: The hop character starts off earthy and a bit floral and spicy in the middle; finishes bitter with a pine note

Mouthfeel: Moderate carbonation and feels slightly oily

Overall: This is a solid IPA that has whats almost becoming an "old-school" flavor as crazy as that sounds. The newest and modern IPA are really focusing on citrus flavors but this beer really reminds me of how my very first IPAs tasted like a pine cone. Its been over a year and half since I last had this, its a classic and will stand the test of time.

A - Poured color is burnt orange which could also be copper.
S - The nose is on the malty side with carmel and just a hint of hops
T - Like the smell with a slight juicy and plenty earthy feel.
M - Medium body and a bitter aftertaste.
O - This is a good one even if I enjoy hoppy IPAs more.
