There seems to be a date on the bottle but it's to smeared to read. Maybe an Old bottle.
A - This beer poured out a hazzy (hops?) orange, with a white one finger head that dissipated rather fast.
S - There is a sweet caramel malty aroma at first with a little hop pine in the background. Hmmm, I wonder how old this is? The hops I do smell seem to be old. Not detecting alcohol.
T - There is a nice hop bitterness of pine, grass, that ends with a big bitter bite. Plenty of alcohol heat and some residual grain in the aftertaste. Also a sweetness that comes through the more you get into it.
M - The feel is so soft and creamy in the mouth, medium bodied and a bite from the hops that takes over with the alcohol. This is a really nice feeling beer.
O - This is an interesting beer for a double IPA, with a hop profile I may not be use to. This is definitely a sipper with some heat from the alcohol burn and a bitter bite from the hops. You will have to take your time with this one. The hops used in this one may not be my favorite, with more pine and grassy notes.
