Default Interesting flavor for an IPA!

Soooo, I can't find my book but, there's an IPA recipe in John Palmer's 'How to Brew' that I brewed back in January. I've been letting it age because of a strange 'sour' nastiness to it.

Well, yesterday I threw a couple in the fridge, let them get cool and had one. It was awesome! But, didn't taste like an IPA. It has a raisiny-cinnamon flavor to it!

...and I'm on my fourth for the day...

Hmm...could the sourness have come from old or bad hops?

Possibly! But, I'm on my 3rd day of imbibing and I love the current flavor.

Actually, interesting you said that. I have had issues with this particular store in the past. I have bought out-of-date yeast there twice now.

Might be time to switch stores..
