Experience: I totally judged this beer before I had it. I thought it was going to be all malt and a disappointment. I was completely wrong. I was super pleased by this beer and all the characteristics that beer had to offer. Even after this beer being four months old had so much punch in flavor. I have learned more about “old” IPAs and the dating process. I do not think I will let beer dates on a bottle or can (if it is an IPA) affect my purchase decision. Grade 4.6/5.
