Courtesy of BostonRyan, 500ml bottled on 12.12.12, consumed just under 3 months later. Hope it stayed fresh enough! Poured into a 12 oz Spiegelau snifter.
A: Golden clear color with a big 2 finger eggshell-white head. Good retention and lacing.
S: Even 3 months old the nose is still great. Nice hops, tropical fruits and grapefruit, mango, orange, and some pine with grassy notes. Great!
T: Hop taste follows the nose, but I think this one is a little too old, tastes a little stale. It's pretty dry, and otherwise well-balanced. Malt backbone gives it a good drinkability without making it too heavy.
M: Good carbonation, medium body, crisp and clean, dry on the finish.
O: I think I'd probably enjoy this better fresh, but still a really solid IPA. I'd be happy to drink it any time.

Poured a clear yellow. The head had great retention and left a decent lacing.
Aroma was very floral and a slight note of orange peel and grains of paradise.
Mouth feel was a little thin but the flavor is very bold. The flavor was piney, grassy with hints of black pepper and straw or hay.
This beer finishes very long and leaves a resin feel on the tongue, with notes of orange pith and kiwi rind.
Serving type: on-tap
