A copperish orange color that is a little hazy from the bottles yeast particals. The head starts off big and rocky then settles down to a frothy layer that sticks around till the end. The aroma is has a floral almost pine like hop to it. The flavor is balanced out nicely. A sharp on the tongue piney hop paired with a biscuity malt. Even the yeast adds a certain sweetness to the flavor. Medium body with a dry bitter aftertaste. What can I say, this is everything I would want from an American IPA. No flavor is over the top like many west coast brewery tend to do. Paired well with jalapeno chicken sausage and rice.

Julian code reads 09347 (i.e. bottled on April 3, '14)
Appearance - Pours a hazy amber orange with an off-white finger width head. Fair retention results in a broken layer of suds across the surface. Lacing is fair, mostly spotty, and holds with good stick.
Smell - Equal notes of orange hop character and bready malts, along with some peppery spice.
Taste - Follows the nose. Orange notes and a bitey, peppery spice backed by an enormous amount of bready maltiness. Hints of pine in the finish to ride along with a low level of orange pith bitterness.
Mouthfeel - Medium body with a fair to lively level of carbonation. Goes down easy with a nice, crisp, semi-dry finish.
Overall - This may have been an amazing IPA back in 1995, but times have changed. Most would consider this an APA by today's standards, and I couldn't disagree. It's a really nice, drinkable beer, but nothing close to what's expected of the style in this age of hop bomb madness; truly a victim of time.
