look: 3 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

A - Doesn't quite look like an IPA upon first glance--holds a steady deep amber color with a light head.

S - was quite pleasant fruity at first

T - was mild on the hops side, quite tolerable for some one who may not enjoy an IPA.

M - Not so pungent until the after taste set in.

Poured from a bottle into a standard pint glass. I know that this has some age on it, but I'm still enjoying it.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy amber with a finger of fluffy off white head. There is a little bit of lacing and a layer of head that remains.

Smell: There is a fruity malt note that reminds me a bit of a barleywine. After that I'm picking up a smooth hop bitterness.

Taste: Citrus peel hop bitterness hits you right away. You can tell this one has smoothed out a bit, but it's still quite nice. The finish is sweet and malty with some brown sugar notes that team up with the hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: The body is just on the thick side of medium body lots of tingly carbonation and a slightly slick finish.

Overall: This is a bit past its prime, but I still liked it. The hops and malt were quite nice together. I'm a fan and would try this fresh.

late to rate this one. deep amber pour with a thick cream head. nose is resin, pine, light fruit, and citrusy. quite smooth on the palate, hops are not as big as i was expecting, citrus and florals up front, bitter aftertaste, no sign of alcohol at all, not bad at all.
