Bought this six from the Beer Store in Southampton Pa and it was a bit dated say by a year. I don't hold them at fault since they got it from a distriutor more then likely, but paying 15 for a year old beer is not good.

Lets rotate guys a little.

Anyway...

beer pours amber with an orange blush and is cloudy and hazy.
Nose is simple sweet caramel malts here. Hops have long since faded away.
Taste find a still quite bitteer ale over sweet caramel malts. Pehaps some floral hops but I'm reaching at this point.
Your prototypicial stale IPA.
I'll try again at a latter date.

Pours very hazy orange amber color with bubbles racing up the middle and a 2 finger foamy beige tan that faded very slowly with craters forming as the head eased its way down; left good foamy lacing sticking to the sides.

Smells of big citrus hops and piney hops up front, with orange peel, grapefruit, lemon zest, pine cone, floral hops, brown sugar, caramel, toasted grains, biscuit, fruity notes and just enough malt to make it perfectly balanced for an IPA.

Tastes as good as it smells, with piney hops, citrus hops, orange peel, grapefruit, pineapple, lemon zest, maybe some tangerine or guava, pine cone, floral hops, brown sugar, caramel, toasted grains, biscuit, fruity notes like pear or apple, tea leaf, herbs and spices like coriander, pepper and light cinnamon; the hops steal the show and dominate in a very good way, letting the malt/grains level it out and hiding the alcohol very well. The hop burst up front never really let's off the gas pedal and yet this remains, smooth, delicious and highly drinkable.

Mouthfeel is creamy and smooth, with a medium chewy body, light carbonation and a bitter finish that is very sweet and full of citrus flavor and some grains. The end sweetness was a tad bit of a letdown, but overall it was an outstanding beer that I highly recommend and will seek out whenever I can find it. For an IPA fan this is about as good as it gets.

First had: on tap at Philadelphia Bar & Restaurant, Philly, PA

Cloudy orange-amber pour, with a finger or so of frothy white head; decent retention and lacing. Citrusy hops on the nose, underlying malt sweetness, and a bit of acetone. Homebrewish. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing. Taste is expectedly hoppy, yet a bit dulled down by a pervasive breadiness, notes of citrus pith and pine, for a drying bitter finish. Medium body, and not a bad selection overall.

Enjoyed on tap at City o City in Denver.

Pours a beautiful slightly hazy copper with one finger off-white head. Decent retention gives way to a solid lacing.

Complex aromas of pine, grapefruit, well-rounded with malts and a hint of mint.

Hits hard with tons of hop flavor and fruitiness. Complex and bitter; hops linger in the palate. Sweet and malty despite the bittneress; an excellent and well-balanced IPA.

Medium-bodied with perfect carbonation and a small amount of resins. There's a hint of warming alcohol at the end, but all in all this is a very drinkable beer. A phenomenal IPA that I will most certainly be buying again.
