Best by 2/2015.

Pours a murky yellow with a foamy white head that settles to a small cap on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, grass, and citrus fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with honey, citrus zest, grapefruit juice, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a medium amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that has a lot of fairly assertive hop characteristics all around even though this one is nearing its best by date.

Serving type: bottle.

Big herbal, spicy, earthy noble hop nose over light grains. Pours slightly hazy gold under a 3" off-white, persistent pillowy foam cap. Noble hop spice and earthiness are more noticeable in the head then in the body while the rich Moravian malts shine more brightly in the body but the two blend in the mouth giving the beer an enjoyable parfait quality. The beer has big malt and hops but everything is perfectly balanced. Medium body and very fine, soft carbonation.

11.1 oz Brown bottle with pry-off cap. Was told by an employee that the store received this bottle in Oct of 2013. Poured into a snifter.

Appearance: Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with two fingers of head. Fluffy and incredible lacing, downright perfect

Smell: Faint grassiness and floral hops

Taste: Complex hop profile with a lot of floral and spicy characteristics

Mouthfeel: Light and crisp in the finish, lingering bitterness

Overall: Wow, this is a year old, and still has a lot of the hop character. The nose has really dulled out but the flavor is still strong. Im impressed it held up this well.
