Once again, another out of date IPA. The bottle is dated 12/30/2012 and it is currently Feb 15th, 2012. So instead of reviewing it on camera, I'm going to let you know how it holds up over time.
Malts: 2-Row, Rye malt, CaraRye, Rye Flakes, Munich malt
Hops: Centennial and Mt. Hood
Bottle Code: On the bottom left corner of the label, clearly printed .
- Best By: 12/30/12 = 12/30/2012
PourNo head. Only a light layer of creamy film formed.
Somewhat cloudy. Most likely from the rye.
Very light but steady carbonation.
AromaNo hop aroma.
Light spiciness from the rye malt.
Not much of any aroma at all.
TasteVery minimal, almost non-existent, hop flavor.
Malt is also very minimal.
Not impressive at all.
VerdictThis beer is only a month and a half out of date, but there is no hop or malt flavor. This is definitely not worth what I paid for it.
I do not recommend this beer.
However... this may only be due to the fact that it is an "Old" beer. But this particular one is a huge letdown.
