Pours an amber color with a thin off-white head. The nose is intensely fruity, almost like a grapefruit/citrus Jolly Rancher. Quite a bit of caramel and sugar, maybe some tropical fruit notes in the background. The flavor is also on the sweet side, but enjoyable. Lots of citrus notes, a bit of candy, some light pine, and a floral note to the beer as well.

Poured into a snifter on 8/2/12

I had to do some guess work as far as which number this is. The bottle is noted "9NO**APR18_13" - the "**" being unreadable on the bottle. Assuming the bottled on April 18th is correct, and, based on the time frame on the blog and the blog's description of the beer, I've concluded this is likely number 64.

Striking rust hue with brown and orange highlights. One finger head falls away quickly leaving some droopy lacing. Thin retention.

Floral hops and soapy pine lingering in the nose before shifting to a heavy-handed dose of malt by way of caramel, bread and candied fruit notions. Faint dry spiciness from the hops.

The flavor is... uncommon for an IPA, at least ones I usually drink. Herbal and grassy with a moderate bitterness throughout. Stale orange peel. Tangy candy fruit and caramel are prominent.

Medium body with moderate carbonation that is suited to the overall feel of the beer. The finish has a lingering, dry grittiness.

Overall impression - I'm not impressed with this one. I'm giving it the benefit of at least some of the doubt due to it's age, but it is too malty regardless.

for a beer that is relying on the bottling info to decipher what hops were used, i have to say this is a pain in the ass when both bottled on spaces on the label are blank, and the printed letters are all on the bottom and not in any actual order. i think i have #64 because i THINK it was bottled 3/20/12.. htough i could be wrong. the bottom of my bottle reads 125 12 A3 20:01

anyway, hazy amber pour with 2 fingers of head that, well.. by the time i finished searching to see what the fuck it is i'm even drinking, the head disappeared. nice lacing. smells of pine, honey, and sweet malts. slight grapefruit citrus smell.

taste is citrusy sweet.. not all that bitter, though it does have a piney/grapefruit bitter-sweetness. a very subtle hoppy ipa, very refreshing and great as a summer thirst quencher.

medium-light body.. nice creamy feel on lips, nicely carbonated for a refreshing feel.

overall it's a really nice ipa - i just wish it was a little easier to figure this out as far as what batch this is.

Here's my first ever bottle from Yazoo, thanks to TheGordianKnot. Poured into a big ol' snifter.

A - A nice ruby-red with a decent amount of head that dissipates quickly but leaves a nice bit of lacing.

S - Spicy, mango, citrusy-sweet hops, with a solid backbone of malty caramel. Smells great.

T - Lots of spicy, slightly earthy hops. The malt backbone is lighter than I was expecting from the aroma, but it has some interesting burnt caramel that sort of blends with the spicy hops. Relatively low bitterness.

M - Medium body, with moderate carbonation.

Overall, this is definitely above average and a little bit unique. I find myself quaffing it pretty fast.
