12 oz Bottle dated 01/08/16 tasted 01/20/16

A — Pours an orangey light coppery color into the glass, there is an off-white colored head that sits on top and leaves behind some remarkable rings of lacing.

S — Smell is fairly light and sweet with notes of caramel malt and crystal malt, a little bit of a floral and piney hop kick is present as well bringing notes of pine, lemon, and flowers.

T — Taste is piney and bitter on top of a caramel and honeyed sweet malt foundation, nice and lightly floral hop profile as well.

M — Medium bodied, a sticky and lingering finish, nice enough.

O — Quite good overall, especially when fresh, there is a nice appearance, good composition of flavors and aromas, wouldn't hesitate to order.

Maybe I got a bad bottle? Muted aroma reminiscent of an AAL, with an odd flavor profile that tastes like a stale IPA. Not even 2 months old...disappointing.

Pour is dark amber with a decent amount of bubbly white head. Nose is heavily malted, caramel and doughy bread, light citrus and grassy hay hops. Taste is strong malt, caramel, bread crust, light citrus, herbal grassy hop in finish. Medium body, softer carb, syrupy finish.

A pretty standard - if bitter - NW IPA. Not terribly exciting.
