Woodstock India Pale Ale

Took me an age to get around to trying and reviewing this. Purchased as a single from Michael’s, Marietta, GA, USA.
Aroma is VERY promising, plenty of the typical hop characteristics of your usual American, DIPA. Color is a mid-brown with a little chill haze that clears to leave a clear, amber pour. Small head, with a small amont of retention. So far, so good.
Here’s the problem; it’s just amazingly DRY. Puckeringly dry in fact, and so much so that is takes away from the drinkability of the beer and the taste. Many of the good points in relation to the beer are hopelessly lost in the wickedly dry finish – all rather odd.
A beer that had the potential to be decent, but fell away rather alarmingly.
