Thanks to haveanother1 for sending this one over in a trade.
A: Pours a clear light amber with 1.5 fingers width of light tan head that has good retention and leaves a good amount of lacing.
S: Grainy, sweet malts, hints of citrus. Very mild nose, with really very little hop aromas.
T: Sweet malts, some citrus rind and piney bitterness on the finish. For the most part its malts up front with hops on the finish. Taste pretty good, with a nice balance, but hop characters could be more prominent. It does grow on me as I continue to drink though.
M/D: Medium body, appropriate carbonation, good drinkability. Nice mouthfeel.
O: Overall, a little underwhelming. Hop characters could certainly be more prominent. Not sure if thats a result of a lack of freshness (damn breweries for not dating their IPAs!) , or if thats just the profile. Not bad though, at first I thought it was pretty blah, but it got better as I drank. It could make a nice session beer at a bar with limited craft offerings, but not something I would make a conscious effort to obtain.
