I just picked up a bottle at Whole Foods...from the ripe, boozy aromas and treacly flavors I'd guess it might be 6 months old or more. From reading some reviews, though, It might be that this IPA is just poorly executed. All of the citrusy, piny, tropical aspects you expect from a tasty IPA have given way to a cloying, syrupy, malt-explosion. If this IS in fact old (and it really tastes like it), Belching Beaver needs to have a serious conversation with their distributor - with the success of their surprisingly quaffable Peanut Butter Stout, they have no excuse to let substandard product to be sold at a craft-retail giant like Whole Foods.

Drain pour.

Not really sure this is an ipa lol it taste kind of like a slightly hoppy doppelbock. I'm not sure what they were going for... not bad, but they really missed the style mark.
