Best by 09/08/10. I guess the freshness is pretty good for grabbing it at Giant Eagle.

A- A more yellow take on an IPA than many others. This beer is only moderately clouded by chill haze. A nice, big white head rises up and holds. Lacing is quite intense.

S- Nice and strong smelling. I am catching little wafts of oranges as it sits next to me on the desk. A closer inspection reveals a nice floral note going on. Nice strong pine that is very west-coast/Stone. A nice classic, fresh, hoppy smell.

T- Not too bitter, but slightly more bitter than most other breweries' year round IPA. Mostly pine but there is a lot of orange and grapefruit.

This beer does live up to how good everyone says it is.
