From the 12 fl. oz. bottle dated 12FEB14. Sampled on August 22, 2014. So it is 6 months old. Within reason I suppose.
It pours a milky looking orange-copper color that leads up to a big off-white cream colored head. The head lingers and laces.
Such a bright hop character on the nose. Floral, grass, resin, and citrus all envelope the senses while the malt character stays deep in the background.
Medium body. But a tad astringent.
Again, like the nose, a robust floral hop bitterness in the flavor that really coats the back of my throat.
