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

22oz bottle at 41 F poured into a large mug. 30409B0051220 (no idea what that means) is the bottle code printed on the bottom. The label has spots for "Best By" and "Enjoy by", but both are empty. Just had a Hoptimum, so that's my starting point.

Pours slightly cloudy, amber, with a smallish head that fades very slowly. Medium to high carbonation. Smell is fresh, grassy, surprising malt level, manifesting as slightly bready.

Taste is bitter. Actually tastes kind of old, but it seems unlikely since it's the new label (although maybe I'm misremembering how long ago they changed their labels. Very piney, resinous.

Mouthfeel is thick, slightly chewy. Overall, it's pretty good.
