look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

355ml bottle poured into chalice 20/3/14 (from notes0

A slightly hazy light orange liquid with some sediment here and there, just a few bubbles but a finger of foam hangs around for a few sips leaving a couple rings

S lots of pine and brown sugar, some earthy notes, caramel and citrus I can't place, fairly straight forward, smells like a hoppy BW

T malts come out a little more, still 3 months until its BB date but the hops have faded a fair bit, lots of brown sugar comes out

M medium bodied, leaves a little behind, quite creamy from the bubbles, rind and brown sugar on the finish

O basic IPA that may have faded a little on its way to OZ, curious if its 3 n0r 9 months old with the BB date 3 months away

I'm guessing this ones past its prime, might score higher as a BW

3.79/5  rDev +4.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Appearance: Cloudy gold with a huge head of foam and excellent lacing. Tons of carbonation. Way too much carbonation.

Smell: Grapefruit, caramel, pineapple, lemon.

Taste: Citrus, caramel, and grassy malts.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and creamy, with a bitter hop aftertaste.

The Verdict: Pretty good. It offers a huge aroma but the flavors are well balanced and muted. My only real complaint is the over carbonation- no matter how perfect the pour, half the glass was foam with each bottle.

3.86/5  rDev +6.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.75

Poured from a bottle; into a tumbler.
Appearance - gold, cloudy; thin, foamy head that leaves decent lacing.
Smell - pineapple and mango, faint juicy fruit.
Taste - not bad, but falls short of the nose, lacking with a strong pineapple and mango presence. A bit too boozy after it sits.
Feel - this goes from an enjoyable, drinkable IPA, to a weird after taste, funky IPA.
Overall - I'm in and out on this one...which means I'm out. Too funky when it's all said and done.
