look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Bottle date of 2011 6A. Poured into a Sam Adams perfect pint glass. $10.99-4pk.
A- Pours a golden copper hue from bottle that sits a nice amber color. A good foamy egg shell head forms and then resides to a foamy cap.
S- Lots of fruit with some hops and a soft malty depth. The fruit notes are mostly a mix of apricot & tangerine. Hops are definitely in the orange range. Medium strength.
T- Lots of soft fresh bready and doughy malt. The fruit seems to be absorbed into the malt body. The hops are faint and really only noticeable as the flavors begin to fade. The malt is sweet and has slight notes of soft caramel as well as some spice. The fruit can be noticed if you imagine them, otherwise lost.
M- Medium bodied. Lingers well. Hops are slightly present in the finish and have a slight bite and tingle on palate. The malt body has a drying feel. Good feel for an IPA, just needs the hops to complete.
O- Pretty much a malt bomb. I was hoping for more hops and more apricot to provide a refreshing crisp brew. Perhaps hops have faded, don't know what the date code stands for, (6A- June?). The smell is more on point, as well as the body feel would have been a great canvas to showcase some fruity hops and apricot. Barely holds onto being an IPA. Easy to drink.
