22oz bottle poured into a tulip glass. Stamp on label says enjoy by Dec 21 2011. Seems like a curiously long shelf life for an IPA, even an imperial one. Pours a surprisingly crystal clear golden yellow with 2 and a half fingers of foam. Not a lot of carbonation. Minimal lacing. Nose is honey sweet with melon and floral notes. Not a lot of hops here. Some underlying soapy hints of bitterness but that's all. Mouthfeel is medium bodied. Low carbonation. Creamy texture. Definitely not a west coast IPA. The hops are much more subdued than I like but they are still crisp and bright. The palate is grassy with pine, honeydew, and grapefruit flavors. The delicateness of the hops make this a more balanced effort. The finish isn't super resiny but it still packs a good amount of IBUs. Maybe I am just too used to the way we do it out west but I can't decide how much I like this one. It's definitely not bad but its nowhere near the cream on the crop.
