Received as an extra in a trade with pollox87, thanks man! I've had it before, but never reviewed it.
A: Beer pours a clear, light yellowish-orange
S: I'm getting a very nice hops aroma in the smell with hints of citrus; it's a nice aroma, but I'm not blown away like I am with some IPA smells.
T: Ah yes, now I'm starting to remember this beer. Very unique flavor, it's a fairly grassy hop flavor that's pretty bitter without a lot of sweetness.
M: Medium-bodied and perfect for this type of beer.
O: I wonder if this one might be a little past its prime. I'm not getting nearly the citrus aroma or fresh hops flavor that I recall the first time I had this beer. The malt definitely comes through a lot in the flavor, and the hops are more subdued. It's still a good IPA, but I remember it being great, and this one didn't quite rise to that level.
Serving type: bottle
