Once again, another out of date IPA. The bottle is dated July/13/2012 and it is currently Feb 23th, 2013. So instead of reviewing it on camera, I'm going to let you know how it holds up over time.
The website says, "This is a fiery Pilsner fermented at ale temperature for a fuller flavor, capped by an intense spice-hop finish."
Style: Pilsner fermented at ale temps.
Malts: Pilsner and vienna malt
Hops: Sterling and US Goldings
Bottle Code: Etched into the bottom left corner of the label. "07/13/12"
PourA half pinky of a white creamy head formed.
LookIt wasn't very carbonated.
The color was yellow like a Budweiser.
AromaA very, very light hop spice. But almost non-existent.
A nice malty aroma.
TasteIt actually wasn't too bad. It tasted like an lightly hopped American Ale.
No frills. No nothing.
Not very impressive.
