3.49/5 rDev +13.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5
From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated Dec 31-12. I sampled this on August 10, 2013 so it is pretty far past its date - if that denotes an expiration date.
The pour is a nice golden-amber tone with an off-white head that slowly settles back but never goes away completely. Good clarity.
For an IPA the hop notes are subdued on the nose with more of an emphasis on the caramel and pale malt character. This is what Blitz-Weinhard intended to do I believe.
The body is about medium with a little creamy texture.
The taste is sweet and mildly malted at first with a sharper hop bitterness creeping up behind to balance it off. Overall a very mild IPA and this is actually the way I prefer them.

3.31/5 rDev +7.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Appearance: Creamy red; doesn't really look like an IPA, but it is really a pleasant color.
Smell: Some oak and that is about it. Pretty eh.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Tastes like faint pine and caramel; more of a red/amber than an IPA. Mouthfeel is quite creamy with good bite in the finish. It's good, but again, doesn't speak to me as an IPA.
Overall: Pretty good beer to find at a baseball game (White Sox). Not a good IPA, but it does a good job as a sweeter amber.
Serving type: on-tap
