look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.75

A: Reddish color with a nice head on it.

S: Smelled stale and somewhat sour with a bit of sweet caramel.

T: Comparable to sweaty gym socks. I think this is severely out of date, but the bottle is not dated.

M: Mostly flat with a severely sour punch.

O: Very disappointing. I believe it is way out of date, but the bottle is not dated so I have no way to tell. Will not be trying again.

Fantastic bouquet full of oranges, lemon zest, marzipan, and cherries. Pours a dark ruby red that darkens to a brown around the edges. Flavor does not quite live up to the impressive nose but is still quite tasty with citrus flavors and carmelized sugar being at the forefront, followed by an earthy but subdued hop bitterness. Some nuttiness in the malt but none of the fruit flavors translate. Finishes clean and fairly neutral. Mouthfeel is slightly thinner than expected with an ample carbonation level. More of a hoppy amber than an IPA; very balanced and drinkable but doesn't come near my personal favorite example of the style, Arrogant Bastard.

2.88/5  rDev -23%
look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

A: poured from a 22 oz bottle into a nonic pint glass, ruby colored with a large off white head that lingers leaving good lacing, hazy

S: heavy on caramel malt, sweet alcohols, not good

T: sweet and malty, caramel, brown sugar

M: medium with high carbonation

O: To be fair, this tastes like it is way out of date. Unfortunately I don't see any date on the bottle.
