4.1/5  rDev +6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

English style IPA with more bitter than herbal hops, this is a remarkable IPA both for its flavor and its session-ability: there is a lot of flavor and presence in a relatively lighter alcohol brew.

An inch of off-white head slowly dissipates over cloudy bright orange-brown with natural carbonation fizz. I'd like to compare this bottle-pour to a draft.

Smell is grassy/green with hints of apple cider vinegar. Not floral, but with big bitterness and just traces of malt. Citrus comes to the fore late in the inhale.

Taste is strongly bitter with a sour finish. Grapefruit and bitter lemon peel later in the flavor, some hoppy astringency at the lingering tail, with some pepper and spicy throughout. The sour/bitter is constant throughout, nicely so.

Medium bodied and highly drinkable at only 5.5%. Thanks, T, for the generous introduction.

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.
