12oz bottle poured into a snifter

A- pours a murky deep amber color with a thin foamy white head that has short retention, settling into a thin film on top

S- fruity hop aroma with some notes of candied orange peel, a bit of pine, plenty of bready malt

T- more fruity hops up front with more candied orange peel, piney and earthy hops at the mid-palate, the finish is malty sweet, with noticeable alcohol

M- medium body and medium prickly carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a creamy, slightly warming finish

O- good ipa, a bit malty, nothing outstanding but certainly drinkable

L: brown like Apple cider, somewhat amber hazy, minimal head.

A: pine, artificial fruit, bubblegum

F: thin and bitter but not dank and not bitter enough for a good IPA

T: pine, bubblegum, malt, stale barley, honey, metal, molasses, and something else familiar maybe fluoride? Whatever it is it ruins the flavor

O: this was a month fresh and found it disgusting. I have a bourbon plead the 5th and 3 other regular plead the 5ths & if these are no good I'm done with Dark Horse. In other words I never have had a Dark Horse I've enjoyed.

Pours a bit lighter than new penny copper with a medium head that leaves lots of lace. Nose is mostly missing...just a light wiff of a floral orange. Double checked bottle date and it is only 45 days old, so I'm not sure what's going on here. Taste is clean and easy drinking, starting off a touch malty, but drying out and leaving more of that floral orange flavor on the tongue. Overall, a very tame beer that is more for pounding back than savouring.

Bottled 3/5/15; drank 5/9/15 @ the Palace.

Murky dark orange appearance.

HUGE white head; frothy lace.

Orange citrus & banana notes in the nose.

Medium mouthfeel.

Orange citrus, banana & mango flavors up front; bitter grapefruit bite on the finish. Nice flavors but too bitter for me to truly love.

A very nice IPA. Forgot to make notes when I had it the other day so no details but I remember it being a nice well above average IPA.
