3.6/5  rDev -6.3%

3.5/5  rDev -8.9%

22oz bottle at fridge temp poured into a large mug. 30625 0010324 is the bottle code. I haven't a clue what that means.

Pours clear coppery golden with a nice big white head and strong retention. Lots of carbonation. Pretty beer. Smell is spicy hops. Some grass. Doesn't smell great.

Taste is not bad. Some hay. Some fruit. A little, dry bitter finish. A little floral.

Mouthfeel is lightish and a little slick. Overall, it's pretty good.

look: 4 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 2.5

A: Dark, almost burnt orange. Finger of beige head. Excellent retention. Moderate lacing.

S: Old beer, old beer, old beer. No idea how old, since there is no damn date on the label. Review as is, I suppose. Dark fruit, big malts. Sweet breadiness in the nose. Everything seems old and oxidized.

T: Same in the mouth. The hop ghosts are there, sharing past glories of citric domination and piney glory, but alas, they are a shadow of their former selves. These days, it's predominately sugar and malt. Graham cracker, a bit of brown sugar, and just enough tingling evergreen to piss you off.

M: This doesn't change too much.

O: It's an expired IPA. I drain poured. The only reason I'm reviewing it and giving it the shit score is because there isn't a label on the bottle. Date your beers.
