Yep, a bit late on this one. Oh well, take it for what its worth.

A - Pours a clear rusty brown with an inch of foam that quickly faded.

S - As expected, the hops are gone, whats left is a sweet malty aroma. I'm still picking up a bit of pine.

T - well almost all of the hops are gone, yet there is still a hint of pine and citrus overtop of the malty background. Surprising after all this time. i'm also picking up some brown sugar and lemon.

M/D - medium bodied with still with good carbonation. Its definitely well past its prime and I wish I could have tried it fresh. So take my ratings with a grain of salt. I'll try to curve higher.

I know, I know, this IPA came out two years ago but I had to buy it to try it. It looks great. It poured a dark apricot orange in color with a one finger off white head. The hops have completely fallen out. It still smells solid, all things considered. It smells very sweet and has light apricot and citrus notes. It kind of reminds me of De Ranke XX Bitter past its best by date. It's still solid, just not a bold IPA that I'm sure it once was. It's still got slight, multidimensional flavors and it's better than a lot of fresh IPAs I've had. It drinks very smoothly right now with little carbonation. This beer is drinkable now but I'm sure it was much better fresh. Still at this point it's solid, not spectacular and definitely not bad.
