Picked up a bottle while visiting Cleveland, it's from the packaged on 12/28/16 batch. Look- darker amber, small head. Smells sweet. Tastes rich, sweet, strong of malt, not super hoppy. Feels very thick in the mouth for me. Not what I'm really looking for in a DIPA. If offered, I would choose to not house a sixer of this. In fact, I would probably ask if I could house a sixer of something else instead! Cheers!!

This was a mess of a beer. Pours murky brownish red. Little to no head wit no lacing. Taste is sweet malt and a unpleasant estingent hop finish that is off putting. Low carb, syrupy and difficult to drink. No thanks on this one. I am not sure why they would make this beer but to each his own I guess. Big fat NO THANKS on this one.

Arbor Brewing Mr. Delicious.

Anddddd I'm just now noticing this is likely an older bottle since it is a winter release. Oh well, Arbor usually makes a pretty solid offering, especially when it comes to IPAs. So let's see how it held up.

Look - Pours a deep murky amber with a perfectly shaped two finger off white head that sticks around and looks sexy like a blonde bimbo with big fake boobs. Having a hard time getting a read on the carbonation due to the high level of murk. Head retains well throughout the drink and leaves a fairly impressive amount of lacing.5..

Smell - Overly ripe bananas with a touch of earthy onion and a large dose of maltyness that takes over the nose. Oh jeeze. Please not the onions. 3.

Taste - Overly ripe bananas dominate the entirety of the flavor. Luckily the onion aspect present in the nose doesn't make much of an appearance here. Alcohol is pretty well hidden and hard to detect. Earthy hops and a bit of dirt in the finish. 3.5

Feel - Well rounded full body with a heavy load of carbonation. The onions once again become present as the beer sits in your mouth. Highly creamy due to the well retained head. 3.5.

Overall - Pretty pissed I didn't get to try this fresh. Even more pissed that my go to shop is knowingly putting up DIPAs that are well over six months old and steel wooling off the dates. But hey,guess when you go to a shop where nobody has a clue about beer you should know what to expect. Girl behind the counter with the tattoos is cute though. Despite the age, the beer wasn't too shabby though I wouldn't have another in its current condition. 3.5.
