Bought this 6-er in Lyons,
Poured a sightly hazy peach/amber color with a fluffy sand-colored 3 finger+ head. Stays slightlty hazy with great lacing & good head retention
S: Huge piney nose
T: Piney hops up front, then slight citrus hops attack. Malt & fruittynes the sneaks in a little. Finishes with a nice hop snap & some subtle fruittyness
MF: Medium bodied with good carbonation. Skews a little to hoppy for the style IMO, balance-wise
Drinks very easy, nice AIPA
Couldn't see any discernable notches on the bottled on date on the side of the label???

On tap at Acme Bar and Pizza in Rochester, NY.
Pours a clear amber, with a half inch head and not much lacing.
Smells piney, without any other real discernible aromas.
The tastes include pine and other earthy hop flavors, some toasted bready malt flavors, and a bit of an alcohol sting, which is weird considering the 6% ABV.
Medium bodied, crisp mouthfeel, less than drinkable to the aforementioned alcohol sting.
Not one of the better IPAs I've had. Pass.

16 ounce "tall hoppy can"
A fairly elegant one inch head is lifted above its hazed dull golden amber liquid. Slowly the head goes to a thicker film and nice looking ringed low sheeting and fields of super fine lace.
Faint and delicate pine hop nose.
Biggest problem here is the thinness of the flavor and lack of body. Very lightly hopped for an "IPA" and not much of a malt presence to boot. Pleasant enough but this drinks more like an IPA "light" then anything else.
