Barely any hop taste. Tastes really watered down

12 ounce bottle poured into a Belgian style tulip glass

A: Looks really good in the glass, nice orange amber color with a white creamy head, clear, nice lacing.

A: not much not the aroma, some slight hop aroma, very little.

T: just like the nose, slight hop flavor, it's more malty than hoppy, some bitterness on the back end, some alcohol, just not impressed with the flavor, kind of dull.

M: besides the appearance, this may the beer's best strength, has a nice medium body mouthfeel.

O: was expecting a little more than this, not a lot of hops, more malty, the bottle says 12/07/14, not sure if this is a best by date or bottled on date, either way, there are far better IPAs out there than this. It's good, it's quality but it's not a beer I would come back to. If I do try it again it has to be on tap to see if there is a difference between the bottled and keg version.
