Undated bottle at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma of citrus hops with a back-odor of something spoiled
Head average (4 cm), off white, creamy, slowly diminishing to 3 mm layer
Lacing good – complete narrow rings of tiny to small bubbles
Body medium amber, cloudy
Flavor bitter, weak, short lived; no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light to medium, watery, soft carbonation

Appearance 3, Aroma 2.75, Flavor 2.75, Palate 3 Overall 2.875. Final weighted score: 2.8125
I first had this in 2007 and my notes (from a microfest) say it was an IPA at 5.5% ABV and was bad. Some things have changed; it is now an APA at 6.5% ABV and now is just below average. The head and lacing are pretty nice but the body is ugly – yes, I know it’s unfiltered but still… The aroma starts off well with some hop citrus but then the odor of putrefaction sets in. Overall, even if this is contaminated, it’s still better than it was 7 years ago. I’ll try it again in another 7 years.
