4.5/5 rDev +17.2%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5
Ap - Perfect IPA color with slight haziness.
Ar - Richly aromatic with herbs, hops, straw, and citrus
T - Very high level of hops but not bitter
M - Medium to full bodied with a great texture and acidity
D - Hop balance and tannin, alcohol, and acidity in harmony
I am surprised that I rated this so highly. I am a huge IPA nut and perhaps I gave this high scores because of the incredible balance this beer has. I have yet to try from bottle, but I will try both next to each other and revise my reviews.

3.83/5 rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
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.
