Yuck. This smells and tastes a little like very old hops mixed, but mainly bad fish. I could not locate the brewed on date, but I bought it at a reputable store that sells only beer; hopefully, they'll honor a return.
I can't actually say that I've ever been compelled to even try to return a beverage, but this beer was so bad I couldn't drink it. I'm pretty adventurous, but this was just plain off.
3/6 bottle all equally bad, maybe it was a bad batch. The brewery clearly has a good reputation and I think I've enjoyed this beer years ago, but I'm not 100% sure.
Sorry to have to report this is a bad brew, but that's pretty much all there is to say. Based on appearance and general carbonation and mouthfeel, it had potential, and if you read I'm not alone in this negative experience.... just AVOID this and drink any of the 100s of others.

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
