Poured a dark copper with a thin tan head.

Bottled in June, so it's on the old side for an IPA, so I have to take that into account...that being said, there was very minimal hop flavor or aroma, so I have to consider that.

Aroma was all alcohol and sweetness.

Flavor was bitter, which was of course expected and wonderful, and a bit of alcoholic warmth.

Beer seems undercarbonated, a bit flat...kind of syrupy.

Overall, I was disappointed in this beer - I'll definitely keep an eye out next year and try a fresh version, though, since I'm confident that was at least part of my issue.
