Picked this one up because the bottle art was pretty darn interesting. And wtf? 400 pound monkey? Poured from 12oz bottle dated ___.. Yeah this is a spot for the date but no date.
A - Giving points for the bottle plus the beer. I love original bottle art. Pours without much head. A semi cloudy orange color. Definitely a pretty beer. Lacing is spotty at best.
S - Can't really smell much. Faint hop aroma. Pretty disappointing.
T - Pretty bland as well.The only flavor is a musty metallic taste on the end with a fairly potent bitterness that doesnt have much malt to back it up. Getting some fusel alcohol in the finish as well. Not the best. Every few tastes I can pick up sort of an old fruit flavor but its not common.
M - Medium with medium to low carbonation.
O - I'm definitely not impressed with this beer. It doesn't really have much to offer besides an entertaining albeit somewhat gaudy label. Not sure if this is old or a bad batch but it definitely was not good for me.

Appearance - Golden with a slight brown
Smell- Malty with a slight hop note
Taste- Strong malt at first giving way to hops. Very good example of an english IPA
Mouthfeel- Could be a bit smoother slight bite and a little thick
Overall- I love this IPA! Drank it out of a bottle for years but on tap is the way to go.
Serving type: on-tap

Pours a clear copper with a nice bubbly head. Slight pine, bread and spice smell. The caramel malt really comes through with a bit of fruit in the background. A nice touch of bitter aftertaste. A medium-light mouth with some carbonation. Very pleasant.
