Poured bottle best by 7/3/14 into New Belgium globe

A-The beer had a cloudy deep amber-straw color with some fine sediment and an one finger foamy white head with modest retention, but very nice cling and lacing.

S-Its aroma had a pleasant blend of citrus, floral, and pine hops with bits of grain and perhaps wheat.

T-The taste was a mostly grainy-citrus bitter blend with some earthy straw notes and a very light sour effect.

M-It had very lively, fizz mouthfeel with high carbonation, and a thicker, fuller feel with a very dry character and finish.

O-Overall very decent IPA I enjoy it more and more I have it.
