I was curious about that one, sort of for the reason I mentioned above, more succinctly here: it's not an IPA. At least, I thought it wouldn't be until I saw your tasting notes; I assumed a golden ale or something in that light but not hoppy/bitter range. I didn't grab it since the date wasn't the best, but I also literally have no idea how age would affect a non-hoppy n/a beer. For reference, the last Athletic has the same age as my yet untasted IPA - a month old. Glad I could help! I very much like dark lagers, which is why I think All Out worked for me pretty well.
