Bottle dated 09/04/14. 9 months old. A baby was conceived and born between when this IPA was bottled and me prying off the cap to reveal the sad, WELL past it's prime beer. Nearly no hop aroma. Malty and stale. I really need to look for bottling dates.

Bottled 03/19/15. A little too piney for my taste, with a light floral aroma. Not the best IPA I've tried, but smooth and definitely drinkable.

Floral notes, a little sticky, no head. Nothing special, but it's cold, wet, and a little hoppy.
