4/5 rDev -1.5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured from a 12oz bottle into a Portsmouth goblet. Date on bottle says it was packaged in March 09.
A - Pours a hazy, bright orange color. A creamy head forms with an off-white, slightly yellowish color, about 1 finger high. Head dissipates quickly and leaves a decent collar of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S - Smells of citrusy and spicy hops and bready malt. Well balanced, expected more hop aroma here. Beer is about 4 mths old, not too old but maybe like some others (Nugget Nectar, for one) the hops leave this one quickly.
T - Good full bitterness with lightly malty flavors underneath - bready, biscuity flavors. Bitterness lingers - some fruitiness appears as the beer warms and hops take on a sharper bite.
M - Beer has adequate body, slightly thin but appropriate for the style. Bitterness lingers into the aftertaste. Carbonation is on the higher side and gives a good prickly feeling in the mouth.
D - This is quite a good IPA with good flavor and medium body. Alcohol is present but not really overpowering. Feels pretty smooth going down...definitely could have another one or two of these.
