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.

Light copper and extremely clean this IPA set up a dense and foamy ivory head.
The scent held an airy lemon, grapefruit and bright fresh hay. The malt is tempered but the hops are very fresh and spring like.
The flavor holds a sweet lemon and a sour grapefruit but the malt is strong in a grainy, musty taste.
The feel is a bit bitter but this is super easy to drink.
Perhaps the musty grain malt flavor was an aberration and not all bottles hold this same property but it detracted from the overall taste.
