From tasting notes 03/03/18
Had on-tap at HopCat in Ann Arbor, MI

Appearance - Served up in a nonic pint, clear and copperish orange in color with an off-white, thin layer of suds covering the surface. Strong lacing that covers a lot of the glass in broken sheeting and small spotting where it finds space.

Smell - The aroma is mostly caramel and wood with a hint of citrus.

Taste - Follows the nose. Mostly balanced flavor profile upfront, with notes of citrus, wood and some caramel malt battling it out. Woody character wins out and turns bitter with twig like character, and it lingers strongly in the aftertaste with woody while a hint of citrus stays at bay.

Mouthfeel - Medium bodied with fair, tingly carbonation. Slick texture that quickly turns a bone dry and slightly harsh finish.

Overall - Decent IPA but not the smoothest or most inviting beer. Lots of woody bitterness. Not one I'd particularly seek out again.

Bottle to 20 oz globe glass. Pours light-honey colored. Head has little retention, but hangs around, no lacing.
Smells of very mild hops, base malt is prevalent. Taste mild, no bitterness, little hop presence. A bit after opening, I get a strong roasted malt twang. Mild carbonation throughout, thin-medium MF.. smooth.

I'm thinking this is a bit old, but it's not bad at all. I'm willing to try another, that I can verify the BO date (I hate when you can't read them).. any changes will be reflected.
