No "best by" date or even a "bottled on" date. Strange.

A: Super hazy, cloudy goldem orange with a huge, fluffy, frothy, foamy white head. Great lace and retention. Gorgeous brew.

S: Very floral hop aroma followed by some grass and hay. Very inviting.

T: Hop presence isn't overwhelming but it's almost all you get. But they're delicate while being full of flavor. Not sharp, bitter, or resiny. Floral, fruity, earthy, delicious! The malt is always there, especially in the finish and as the beer warms up. Finally a beer that can be accurately claimed as balanced.

M: So damn smooth and properly carbonated with a great body. Massive drinkability...I want another bottle!

O: All I can say is that I'm really happy I picked this up. I can also say that I wish all English IPAs were this good because I'm not a huge fan of the style. Huge fan of this, though.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

look; pale golden orange with lots of tiny bubbles. first normal pour resulted in head rapidly foaming over glass rim for half a glass of beer. A much more careful pour resulted in a foamy 4" head. leaves thin sticky lacing
smell; apricot hops and malt, some citrus, a little bit of cherry when the head calms down
taste; dry hoppy grapefruit up front with grass, tart cherry and wood blending in, medium light malt, nicely balanced
feel; crisp, fresh, lots of carbonation, almost seltzer level. Works for this beer.
overall; a nice very live and entertaining hoppy fruity bitter pale ale. a lot going on but balanced, nothing out of control except maybe the head.

look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

Appearance: high carbonation, 1 inch head, hazy, gold in color

Smell: citrus hops with wheaty bread

Taste: orange, lemon zest, light grapefruit, and light toasted malt

Mouthfeel: sweet with bry bitter backbone and dry end, light body, high carbonation

Overall: A very juicy and tasty English IPA. Bitter but not overly so. A nice beer to sit with. I like others from Mystic better, but this is solid.
