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.

Aroma spicy hops
Cloudy amber
Minimal head
Flavor hoppy but enough malt to balance. Hint of roasted flavor in malt.

Tasted head to head with founders centennial. This is more complex and slightly preferable to me.

This is a really good IPA. This stood out at a brew fest I attended yesterday. Try it if you can find it.
