Picked up a single at Total Wine in late April for $1.49. Bottled on 8-6-12 - Say what? Oh well, it won't be the freshest.

Beer poured a cloudy orange with a smallish off white head.

Nose is very citrusy for an IPA this age.

Taste initially was very well balanced between the sweet caramel malts and citrusy hops. But as i continue to sip the finish is becoming more piney.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, moderately carbonated and satisfying.

Overall i like this brew. It was certainly better fresh...i will need to look for a fresher version and review again. Another nice Rotator series brew.

A - Drank this out of the bottle but looking at other reviews it has a hazy dark amber color with an orange tint. Lacing sticky head.
S - Smells of strong herbal and piney hops with a decent sweet balance.
T - Kind of aggressive bitterness for the first few sips, then it somehow grew on me and I enjoyed every sip afterward. The clash between herbal bittering hops and semi sweet cracker malts was very tasty.
M - Medium in body somewhat sticky with a crisp finish.

Overall far from my favorite IPA but this one won me over with drink ability considering I wanted a six pack after finishing my single. Well worth the mixed six price of 10 bucks for the pack. Give it a try it's better than I thought it would be.
