Disappointing. Just kind of an average IPA, but expected it to be much more than that.

We don't normally get this in my state, but somehow a bottle ended up on a singles shelf locally. Bottled 5/29/14 so WAY past its prime, but I'm gonna take a stab at reviewing it anyway.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into a Unibroue stemmed flute.

a; Slightly hazy orange with an inch plus thick white head which receded slowly to heavy even surface foam and very dense lacing. Looking great so far!

s: Slight light fruit.

t: Somewhat fruity biscuit malt followed by a moderate hop bite which lingered at the back sides of the tongue through the otherwise dry finish.

m; Medium, nice body, moderate carbonation tingle.

o: Obviously a top quality IPA. Probably had more winning flavor when fresh, but still a good quaff, sips nicely to go with its near perfect look and mouthfeel.
