12 oz. bottle, no bottled on date present, but I'm pretty sure it's as fresh as can be.

A - Beautiful cloudy orange color, with a short thick and foamy white head, that disappears quickly. That hop cone plopped itself into the glass, and it just makes it look even more gorgeous.

S - Smells amazing. Irresponsibly hoppy, which is just what I want out of a double IPA.

T - Fresh, juicy, citrus hops. Extremely potent fresh grapefruit taste, this IPA is so fresh and hoppy you'd think someone had just whipped it up in the kitchen for you. A friend of mine tried eating the hop cone, and he said it tasted like a crumpled up receipt. Needless to say, I didn't try the hop cone.

M - Extra dry, bitter finish. Lovely, everything one could expect from an IPA. And the presence of the hop cone definitely helps to make it a novelty experience as well.

Overall, this was my delicious first introduction to O'so Brewing, and I'm looking forward to trying more.

Was waiting to try this with Ralph. Bought while in Milwaukee.

Sorry Ralph, I couldn't wait any longer. Beer has a carmel hint with bitter hoppy after taste. The hop cone is a unique touch - adds to the bitterness.
