look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Disclaimer: bottled 12/24/12

poured into Duvel glass

appearance: slightly hazy golden yellow, bubbly white head, minor lacing

smell: piney herbal hoppiness, coriander and clove spices present, floral and fruity, some bittersweet malt

taste: still pretty hoppy despite being expired, dry bitter aftertaste with a prominent malt bill that coats your tongue with a resinous earthy blend. As the nose indicates, there's some sort of spice notes, either coriander or clove (maybe both), can't really put my finger on it. Probably not as pronounced when fresh I would guess. Still very enjoyable from start to finish, very smooth IPA.

mouthfeel: average carbonation, slightly thin body

overall: Will re-review when I get a chance, bottled 12/24/12, way too old for an IPA or any beer really, but I decided to drink it anyways, wasn't going to review it but it was still decently hoppy and enjoyable, so I went ahead. I've never had a bad beer from Great Lakes, even though they're from Ohio, and this was still a great IPA after 6 months, can't wait to get my hands on a fresh one.

Best by 06/02/13. Which is...two days from now.

A: Pours a clear deep amber. Big fluffy white head. Fades slowly, leaving really nice walls of thick spiderweb-like lacing. Great head retention too.

S: Definitely an EIPA. Little bit of citrus, little bit of pine. Mellow hops with a little bit of bread.

T: Hoppiness stands out a little bit more here. Definitely grapefruit up front. Decent amount of pine follows. Dry bready, crackery malt follows with hints of toffee. Little wave of bitterness in the finish with some more grapefruit and pine. Decently drying in the aftertaste.

M: Medium bodied, dry.

O: Pretty standard EIPA. Mellow but notable hoppiness. Easy drinking, although a bit dry. Hoppiness isn't overpowering but there's barely any malt to back it up. Not bad.
