Best By Bottle date 6/27/12
6 pack for the most part consumed last week so within a month of bottling assuming the freshness dates are stamped for 3 months out.
4.5 across the board. Everything about this beer is better than good.
This beer is probably the most refreshing IPA I could think of to drink on a warm or hot day. Refreshing being the best word to use because along with the earthy pine comes a tropical blast to the senses that finishes leaning most towards a lemon citrus flavor.
Very easy drinking and a very, very crisp beer. Hop oils don't linger on as they would with a DIPA, keeping that crispness I speak of and drinkability.
This IPA is as good as it gets for a single. Only other two I can think of off the top of my head that stand up to it are Just Outstanding and Blind Pig. $14.99 a sixer is a good value "I guess" especially when you look at the $8.99 rip off for a bomber. I'd NEVER pay for a bomber of this beer for the record.
