3.55/5  rDev -10.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle (bottled in April '09, wk 3 - about 3 weeks old) into a Portsmouth goblet.

A - Poured a hazy, slightly cloudy pale yellowish orange. A medium density white head gave way quickly to a thin ring of fine bubbles around the edge of the glass. Decent lacing.

S - Not what I expected from an IPA. Hops are not very prominent in the nose. Aroma is spicy and somewhat citrusy - mainly oranges.

T - Spice and herbal notes dominate the taste here too. Can't quite place what the combination of spices is though...tastes like maybe cinnamon/mulling spices...a little odd. Not too much in the hops department - spice flavors overpower. Average bitterness.

M - Medium body, prickly carbonation. Nothing wrong here.

D - If I wasn't expecting an IPA, this would be an ok beer. Spices are a little high for my tastes though and hop character was lacking. A fairly drinkable beer, but maybe misclassified in style.
