From a mixed 12 at the local bottle shop (supposedly just received), and no bottle date. Damn, why did I but an IPA again without checking the date! Poured into my snifter glass (aggressively). Nice clear, bright amber with a small bit of white head that was gone pretty quickly. Not a very bright nose... some hints of lemon and citrus, as well as an overall aroma indicating bitterness. The bitterness in the taste was on point, and I love a bitter IPA. A bit malty up front as well (surprisingly). Flavor-wise, however, some of those nice hoppy notes that I have come to expect were absent. Two-note wonder. Light to medium mouthfeel, with a slightly oily finish. Carbonation continued lazily throughout the life of said IPA. Overall, not a bad beer, not very complex, and no idea if this had to do with the freshness or the recipe itself. Probably wouldn't seek this out to discover the answer, but wouldn't hesitate to grab one out of a buddies' cooler at a summer party.
