I really liked the orange tinge to the brew, it added to the thick, white head that had really good staying power. That's pretty much where the distinctive parts of the beer end. The smell was basic IPA and the mouthfeel was mostly carbonated. I will say the taste was bold lightly citrusy, so kudos there. Overall, it was a pretty good IPA but nothing really that made it stand out from the pack.

Not sure when it was bottled, but the "enjoy by" date is 18 March 2015. Today is 26 October 2014.

Poured into an ordinary pint glass.

Pours a pretty orangish-gold, one finger head settles down to a half finger and stays there for the duration. Foam is nice and dense, nice lacing.

Not a ton of smell, but what is there is hoppy and invigorating.

Taste emphasizes the bitter, but is not overboard. Slightly piney. You know you're dealing with hops here. Edit- more experienced reviewers than I note a "peppery" quality to the taste. I think that is a perfect description for the dominant impression of this beer; peppery hoppiness.

Really nice mouthfeel, definitely not a thin beer; and the carbonation is up to the level of the hops.

Enjoyable beer.
