look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Bottled 09/25/14

A- Deep straw yellow, slightly hazy, two finger white head, nice tiny bubbles.

S- A lot of pine, some grapefruit and a nice light tropical note to it.

T- Big dry pine and a light troical and citrus sweetness and finishes dry.

M- Medium light.

O- For being almost three months old and having been stored in a hot bottle shop, I found this beer to be tasting still very fresh. Short's usually goes overboard in my opinion with pine in their hoppy beers and this is no exception. It does, however, have and added tropical note and a sweetness in the middle that is welcomed and really elevates this over many of Short's other IPAs.

12oz bottle from fall 12-pack variety box. No bottle dating.

Saffron, slightly hazy elixir poured into SA glass. Nice one finger, rocky head maintains throughout. Thick lacing.

Aroma of hops: grapefruit, mango, pine. Minimal whiff of malt.

Tangy grapefruit, pine resin bitterness, pineapple, mango. Nice!

Medium body, nicely carbonated, twang/tang.

Well done IPA. Would keep this in the fridge if available in CLE.

Bottle shares by Adam. Thanks man.

Hazy yellow body with soft white head. Aromas include lemons, hops, crackers. Bitter hops with lemony, tart citrus and a tangy finish. Pretty good.

Appearance - 3.8/5
Pours a great looking clear bright orange, with about two+ fingers of weirdly uneven white foamy head. Can see an average amount of carbonation rising up the beer, and can see very small particulates throughout the beer.

Smell - 2.8/5
Slightly sweet pine-citrus hops, maybe some light malt flavor.

Taste - 2.8/5
Pine-resin hops, with some slight floral notes as well as a hint of citrus. Fairly bitter. The hops are a little too intense and the taste a little too bitter for my liking.

Mouthfeel - 3/5
Medium body, fairly smooth (though bitter). Slightly syrupy. Carbonation is moderate.

Overall - 3/5
I'm not a big IPA fan, though usually most IPAs are drinkable for me, and I have slight to moderate enjoyment of them. That was not the case for this one. It was a little bit of a chore to finish off this beer and needless to say, I will not be drinking this again.
