From the bottle (log stored in basement...), it pours a moderately dark amber with a nice head, reducing to a half inch layer of fluffy foam on top of the beer... Mild fruitiness in the nose. The mouth is enticed by the clean hoppiness. Enjoyable!

From notes. Had at the Red Stag. Pours brilliant amber under a 1” off white clingy foam collar. Fruit and herbal aromas blend with malt. A dose of bitter balances and gives character to peach, melon, herbs and a light malt sweetness. Medium body and carbonation. A big flavored beer that is very easy to drink.

"An homage to our roots and the craft-brewing heyday of the early 90's. Maris Otter and Special B malts give a big sweet background to a palette of Horizon, Willamette and Galena hop varieties." Brewed in the style of an American India Pale Ale. Released as entry #4 in the Hop Kitchen series. Available in 22 oz. bottles and on draft.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle to a New Belgium pint glass. Served above 50 degrees Fahrenheit.

(Appearance) Pours a tan white head of a foamy froth hoad over a moderately hazy copper orange body with light sparse carbonation. Retention is very good, lacing is light and streaked. 4.5

(Smell) Aromas of bready, syrupy malts with a fruity, herbal hop aroma and a mild bitterness. Very fruity, clean and sweet. You really don't smell too many IPAs like this these days. Potency is medium. 3.75

(Taste) Bitter, earthy hops up front with an unsweetened light bread malt and a pinch of grain. Mild fruitiness and pine after the swallow. More bitter and less hoppy flavor than the aroma had predicted. 3.25

(Mouthfeel) Texture is slick, mildly chewy, mildly dry. Carbonation is smooth and light for a creamy, soft mouthfeel. Body is shy of medium for the style, medium overall. Balance is slightly bitter over sweet. Alcohol presence is low and there are no off characters. 3.75

(Overall) It's a pretty neat concept looking back at earlier IPAs and the varieties that have trended down over the years in favor of citrusier, brighter and more potent hop character. To that extent, Rewind is a good price for a blast to the past, but also a wary reminder as to why we mostly don't dabble in balanced IPAs or with fruity hops as much these days. Many don't find them as interesting or enjoyable as they once did, especially as the hop market explodes with bright and intensely flavored hoppy goodness. A nice blast from the past. 3.5
