No enjoy be date, but there is something that looks like a batch number just above the UPC.
Slowly poured into a standard pint glass.
A: It is a dark copper and just a little hazy with a few carbon bubbles raising through it. A thin, light beige head arose during the pour and then disapated quickly.
S: A powerful aroma of grapefriut and pinapple, and then some orange and lemon citrus with just a touch of pine.
M: A medium to heavy body, and leaves a slick coating. Just a hint of carbonation.
T: Big grapefruit hops right up front, some bitter bite and some pine and booze. Just enough malt to hold everything together but still stay out of the way.
O: An excellent hop bomb. A huge grapefruit hop blast right in the beginning sets the tone. And, there is a little bit of bitter bite that fits right in with the hops blast. This is an honest to goodness IPA. A first class brew from beginning to end.
