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.

Another English IPA, a style I still want to get into but find it hard, as I usually don't like the hop profile. I once smashed Pretty Things for doing a big IPA although it was an English IPA, but now I miss the times when they were making styles of things I normally wouldn't buy or try otherwise. So cheers to Mystic and Pretty Things for producing styles like this.

Pours a fizzy bubbly 1 finger frothy head that fades at a med pace but reinforced by lots of bubbles streaming from the bottom, slight hazy golden honey orange yellow color.

Nose seems to bring a more American hop profile, fruity and a little citrus tropical fruit but not much, a mild grapefruit and tangerine like, before turning into a mild floral hop and grassy like, touch earthy, as the grapefruit really starts to get juicy and like a fresh spray of grapefruit, just a touch of sweet malt under all that. There is a hint of a lemony character, almost saison like lemon too.

Taste starts with more hops, not a ton of bitterness but lots of hop character, juicy hops with a lot of fruit again, with some citrus and tropical fruit like, little tangerine and some grapefruit again, little pith and rind, etc. Then hops turn a little floral and grassy, just a touch of earthiness. Malts are mild, little grainy toasty character, mild sweet malt like flavor but just enough to let the hops come through. Yeast seems to bring a hint of that fruity quality itself, and light cracker note. Hope turn slightly lemony as well. Finish dies off a lot, and as it does so the bitterness from the hops really take off, a rind like bitterness with more grapefruit pith, little tangerine, and touch earthy.

Mouth is med bod, little fluffy feeling, nice carb.

Overall mixed feelings, yes it's a pretty tasty beer, nice hop flavors, good malt character that really lets the hops shine but balances them nicely and keeps them in check, and finish brings a nice drying feel and long lingering bitterness. However, this isn't really an English IPA, much more American style hop profile and even malt profile, so I really don't know how to rate it, since I usually rate towards style I have to take off a couple points overall, but still a pretty tasty beer.

Moderate head but it settles quickly, leaving a single layer of bubbles. Some initial spots of lace. The liquid is cloudy amber with a tinge of orange.

Smells slightly sweet. Very low hop smell. I detect a bit of alcohol.

This is a mello IPA without a lot of the elements I expect to find in the English version, meaning there isn't the strong caramel malt flavor. Decent peppery hop in the swallow. This is a subtle IPA, probably closer to a Mild or a Bitter. Good body and carbonation.
