12oz bottle with best buy date 7/18/11 poured into Mac & Jack's pint glass, reviewed on 4/15/11
A: Pours a clear golden color with off-white head and lots of lacing around glass. Looks good.
S: Smell is dominated by grassy hops, not very strong and not the greatest hop aroma, some unpleasant stale malt with a hint of alcohol. Smells more like a hop forward pale ale than an IPA.
T: Tastes a bit better than it smells but not the hop dominant taste you expect from an IPA. Sweet base malts with a hint of orange. Some grassy hops on top of the malt add enough hoppiness for Henry's to call this an IPA. Tastes pretty much like Henry's Private Reserve with extra hops.
M: Some bitterness up front, light bodied with good carbonation. Not a real smooth drinking beer.
O: Tastes better than the regular Henry's but they really missed the mark for trying to make an American IPA. Won't be buying this one anytime soon. A buck more for six pack can get me significantly better beer.
