Pourers pale golden-orange, thin head. Bounty of bubbles. Aggressively bready citrus scent, sour, crisp & inviting. Malt forward, lingering dry, lemon domination.

Received this malt bomb in a trade today . . . Honestly, it may be an ok ipa fresh but not 8 months later.

By this point it is only an ipa according to the label.
My fellow BA's, do not send 8 month old ipa's to your trading partner. Do not even send 2 month old ipa's to your trading partner. Cheers !

A: 4.5 Pours a reddish gold with a large, creamy looking off-white head. The head is very uniform and actually quite pretty.

S: 4 Fairly mild aroma overall which is a bit disappointing; based on the name, I was expecting quite the hop bomb. There’s some pine first with a little bit of grapefruit as well. Fresh-cut grass, dank, and some honey/malty sweetness are present as the beer opens up.

T: 3.5 While the hops were dialed back on the aroma, they are even more subdued on the palate. The flavor starts with a pretty big dose of malt sweetness followed closely by some bitterness and a slightly sulfurous finish. There’s a little bit of lemon flavor that’s pretty nice, but any fresh flavors are overpowered by malt and bitterness.

M: 4 The carbonation is nice and the body has a good feel, if slightly watery.

O: 3.75 I was hoping for a fresh tasting, hoppy IPA with little malt, but this is kind of the opposite. If you’re into malty IPAs with a fairly strong bitter element, this might be a great beer for you, but it’s not what I look for in IPAs. At 5-6 weeks old, perhaps this beer has a crazy short shelf life before falling off.
