12 oz can from Pilgrim's. Canned 3/30/17, a little over two months ago. Aroma is caramel malt, earthy, pepper, bready. Pours slightly hazy burnt orange with a one finger off-white head with decent retention and some lace. Taste is medium bitter with lots of caramel malt flavor. Well, I know it's not old at least, unlike the last beer I rated where that was debatable. I think this is just a really old school, late '80s/early '90s type of IPA, when caramel malt was more pronounced, hop flavor not as extreme. It's drinkable, but I'm not crazy about it.

On tap at Iron Bull, Seattle.
Crusty off white over bright amber. 4
Sweet grain and grass. 3.5
Pound cake malts and crystal toffee then bubblegum and powdered orange drink hops. 3.75
Floral comeback and only slight IBUs.
Lt-med, salty, slight chew. 4

Dim nose and the taste follows: sweet malts and no real hop bite. Just flat and uninteresting. Sports bar APA, but even too cloying for that. 3.75
