Picked up a bomber from Total Wine in early December for $7.99. Bottled on 10-21-13.
Beer poured orange with a nice white head that is leaving lacing.
Nose is pretty nondescript, some citrus hops linger.
Taste is big grapefruit citrus rind and pine up front. Malt backbone attempts to balance things out but does not accomplish that. Everything i am looking for in a 2IPA.
Mouthfeel is full and satisfying.
Overall this is a very smackable brew. This is an old school 2IPA where the malts complement the hops and not become dominantly sweet and the abv is not jacked up too high. Try it if you come across it. You will not be disapointed!
