Bottled 30 December 2013, per the code on the label. Tasted 21 April 2014.

Pours a clear medium amber. One finger of whiteish head, decent retention and lacing. Thin column of bubbles in the center.

Smell is warm toasted malts and herbal hops. VERY malty, so much so that I don't think I'd even peg it as an English IPA. I find it generally dull (and I like subtlety).

Taste is a shade better than the smell. Balanced, smooth, and fairly clean, though the back-end bitterness has an odd edge to it. Hops are low, and what ones there are are herbal, kinda hay-like. Malts are buoyant, full, and toasty. Just enough hop bite that I know it's an IPA.

Feel is pretty good. Medium-bodied, expansive in the mouth. Carbonation is mid-level, which is fine. Lasts a little longer than average, fading into a mildly chalky drying bitter.

A meh beer. For this style to wow me, it's got to show some subtle depth, or really nice balance, or something. This is just kinda blah.
