A - poured from a 12 oz bottle. appearance was a crystal clear honey color. quickly evident that something wasn't right. zero head, zero carbonation
S - nice aromas of citrusy, lemon rind hops with a touch of pepper.
T - flavor follows aroma but doesn't really explode. nice bitterness, even without any carbonation to help deliver, and just a touch of caramel, biscuit malt flavors.
M - solid medium body but certainly not the best example without any CO2
D - very drinkable. lots of hop flavor/bitterness and not too chewy to make for a nice session IPA
Big fan of Bear Republic. Hop Rod is an outstanding beer. Even though I got, what I think was, a bad bottle...would seek out again based on other beers I've had from BR and reputation alone.
