Bottle date 11/8/14

Beautiful golden orange colored ale with small amount of white head that quickly went away. It has a beautiful bouquet of citrus pine. A bit of a gripping bitterness but overall stays smooth. Flavor follows with a bright, crisp citrus, resinous note. You can feel the amount of hops used to make this beer. As the beer warms I start to notice some more pineapple and tropical aroma and in the taste. Overall a great use of 2 of my favorite hops, and something you should go out and get. But from my experience I feel I can find something similar that is much easier to get. And I understand that this is "2 months old" at my time of drinking it. Still a great beer, get over yourself. If a beer is considered ruined if not drank in the first 2 weeks it's not a great beer.
