unimpressive IPA, not a hint of tropical fruitiness whatsoever. Probably not a bad IPA but I expected much differently

Hugely tropical, to the point of candy. Very drinkable, if a bit thin. A different, informed take on kiwi hops. 4.25

Opened months before the best by date. Pours a pink-hued murky brown-orange color with a finger of sudsy, bright white head. It has a very unusual and complex, almost musty aroma with some doughiness behind it and hints of toffee, bubblegum, grapefruit, strawberry and papaya. The taste is just as unusual, with many of the same flavors as the nose, but much more muddled, quite dry, with a bitter, metallic aftertaste. It's got a somewhat creamy, somewhat oily mouthfeel, cut by the carbonation. Not like any IPA I've had before. Yeasty, indeed.

This beer has suffered with age; the hops took a beating. There's still a little hop flavor and aroma, but not much. What's left is a little like wet cardboard. Not a bad beer, just well past its prime.
