poured 22oz bottle into snifter. Bottle dated 27613, which I assume is 10/3/13.

A - Clearish light coppercolor and a good 2 finger white head. Fades into a collar that leaves behind webbed lacing.

S - Earthy and floral hops with light bitter notes. There is some odd smell for the malt sweetness. Not quite what I expect for an IPA.

T - Um what? I really wanted to like this, but I am getting some odd flavors. You think of caramel malt or honey sweetness in IPAs, but I am getting, sweet corn flavor. I'm not joking. The hops are medium bitter, with some floral and earthy notes.

M - Light bodied and easy to drink. Not a big biter presence on the palate.

O - Sigh, I was hoping that this would be an IPA I could drink regularly, but it just did not work for me. CW, you do make some amazing beer, this just wasn't one of them.

a clean golden/copper pour, 2 fingers of bright white head, good amount of lacing. smells of slight citrusy grapefruit, caramel malt, bready. not much hop presence there in flavor, but lots of caramel and a slight bitterness in the finish. medium in body, moderate amount of carbonation. a decent beer, but not feeling much in the hops category, which at this point in game i feel is crucial for an ipa to have.
