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.
