12 oz. with no freshness date. The bottle foamed up when I popped the cap so I poured carefully, resulting in an unfiltered orangey copper body with a 1 finger tan head that leaves some lacing. Nice mix of hops in the aroma - floral, piney, leafy, and medicinal - all giving an almost raw presence. The flavor reveals notes of sweet apricot, mango, citric/piney hops, a medium bitterness, toasted malts, and faint notes of caramel, chocolate, and honey. It has a medium body with very fine carbonation and, although it doesn't say it's conditioned, it feels like it is and there's sediment on the bottom of the bottle. On par with a good, craft IPA, but not really above the rest. However, I would happily drink it again.
