look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4
A: Very cloudy with some carbonation still visible. Color is orange with a thin white head that seems to last and last. Decent amount of lacing.
S: Hops dominate the nose, but are still not to strong. Some sweet malts are in the background. Reminicent of a hoppy pale ale.
T: Like in the nose hops are the dominate flavor, but they are quite light compared to other IPA's. fruity malts come out midtaste reminding me a bit of oranges. Finish is citrusy and bitter.
M: High carbonation and a little bit watery.
D: This is one of the lightest IPA's I've ever had, but that's not a bad thing. From time to time I still buy this when I am craving an IPA but not something hopped to high hell. This would be an excellent place to start if you are uninitiated to the world of IPA's.

3.83/5 rDev -0.3%

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.
