3.86/5  rDev -1%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Disclaimer: bottled 12/24/12

poured into Duvel glass

appearance: slightly hazy golden yellow, bubbly white head, minor lacing

smell: piney herbal hoppiness, coriander and clove spices present, floral and fruity, some bittersweet malt

taste: still pretty hoppy despite being expired, dry bitter aftertaste with a prominent malt bill that coats your tongue with a resinous earthy blend. As the nose indicates, there's some sort of spice notes, either coriander or clove (maybe both), can't really put my finger on it. Probably not as pronounced when fresh I would guess. Still very enjoyable from start to finish, very smooth IPA.

mouthfeel: average carbonation, slightly thin body

overall: Will re-review when I get a chance, bottled 12/24/12, way too old for an IPA or any beer really, but I decided to drink it anyways, wasn't going to review it but it was still decently hoppy and enjoyable, so I went ahead. I've never had a bad beer from Great Lakes, even though they're from Ohio, and this was still a great IPA after 6 months, can't wait to get my hands on a fresh one.

3.53/5  rDev -9.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Orange Amber with just a tinge of brown. Thin creamy head

S: At first a pleasant fruity smell, however it yielded to a musky smell not unlike the home brewed IPA I attempted. Very strange. If not for the musky after smell it would be very good.

T: Different. Not bad at all, but for an IPA, not great. Honestly, it tasted as if Guinness added hops to their draught to try and make an IPA.

M: Not unpleasant. For a 7.5 ABV IPA it drinks very smooth and easy. The alcohol is masked well.

O: Average IPA. Definitely not in the top tier, but not bottom cellar. Unique taste but not a memorable one. Good for a try in a pick six, but not much more.
