22 oz bottle poured into snifter dated 5/25

A: nice soapy head with a beautiful clear amber color in the glass

S: lots of sharp citrus and pineapple, papaya a little bit of lemon zest and some cracker like malts

T: lots of malts but a good dose of that touches of malt papaya and pineapple very nice and slightly dry not crazy sweet but just a touch

M: light crisp easy to drink dry though interesting carbonation is there but smooth

O: At being over two months old this beer is very very good. I don't know if it is the water or what but try kill at making IPAs they are huge fruity and so clean on the tongue. This beer is still fantastic.
