Pours into an imperial nonic a rich burnt orange color with a thinner but well sustained white head.A decent shot of orange and grapefruit hits in the nose.Somewhat sweet upfront on the palate sugary and caramel notes,some earthy and piney hops linger in the finish.Not a big hop bomb on the palate but a decent american IPA.

Poured from the bottle into a Spiegelau IPA glass.

A deep caramel brown to orange colored body, fairly clear with some good amount of slow and fine rising carbonation. Head forms a nice three fingers with a faint tan to off white color. A bit creamy in appearance with a good cap. Leaves a good thick cap with minimal lacing.

Nose smells of biscuity malts, and soft cookie dough primarily. Some mild pine senses and wood like earth and hops but very malt forward on the nose. Not much of a distinct noticeable hop profile, almost smells like an English Bitter or ESB.

Biscuit notes travel a bit on first sip. The palate fills with a nice caramel, and light pine hop action. Some decent bitterness to announce and define itself as an IPA, as the biscuit notes wash with some mild herbal and pine. A decent malt carrying body even though it comes off a bit lighter than anticipated. There is also a low amount of bitterness but still detectable, with a bit of a light clove and brown spiced like finish.

Overall drinkable but nothing mind bending. Could drink again, but there are a lot of really good IPAs out there and you have to really bring it to make your mark.

A friend brought this over for a small tasting tonight. This beer was just not good. I'm thinking (hoping) that this is an old bottle of this. If it's not, it's inexcusably bad!

Seriously, breweries, WAKE UP AND BOTTLE DATE your IPA's at the very least.
Malty, no hops, thick viscous and shitty. Good descriptors of this beer. There's no excuse for any bottle not to be dated. Not a fucking "best by" date, let the consumer figure what is for us, just tell us how old of a bottle we are purchasing.

This beer= not good
