Very nice, clean, straw colored pour with a frothy off white foam cap and streaks of lacing too. Quite to floral bouquet aroma compliments the flavor matching the aroma with some citrus and pine. Medium carb and pretty smooth. I found I really enjoyed this quite a bit!

Without question the hoppy quality is right at the front of this IPA.

Unfortunately I have no idea how old this bottle is, or where it even came from. It was gifted to me by a friend who themselves didn't know how old it was, and I've never seen it in Ohio before (being from Cali, I'm pretty sure they don't have distro here).

Anyway!

APPEARANCE (4.5) - Great cloudy-gold color with tight bubbles and patchy, clumpy lacing.

SMELL (3.75) - Good, but not awesome, there's a big, sweet barley note there, you can smell the cereal grains going on here, some caramel malt, and little else. Where are the hops?

TASTE (3.5) - Hm, definitely tasting stale by now. Amarillo, Centennial, Columbus, and Simcoe? Sounds awesome! But what I get tastes like... sweet green tea, freshly mowed grass, and a mild grapefruit rind finish. It's good, don't get me wrong, but it also shows it's flaws (and probably it's age).

FEEL (4.25) - Really quite exuberant in its carbonation lending a crisp yet creamy mouthfeel. Drying in the finish, yet medium-full and juicy at the start. Pretty great.

OVERALL (3.75) - I really would like to try this one fresh. The hop profile sounds like it should be great, and there are certainly some shadows of greatness happening in this one. I'm sure it's quite old by the time I'm trying it, as the flavor profile is reminding me of a months, months old Dale's Pale I had, though this is delivering a FAR more enjoyable experience. I think this is a good beer that is probably pretty great if it can be had fresh.
