Cracking this one open and hoping it's fresh. Poured a clear copper color with a big sticky and resiny looking off-white colored head.
Aroma has plenty of citrusy tangerine and grapefruit to go around, but also a strong pine/evergreen scent going to. Agitating the beer a bit allows for some bready malt characters to show through.
Taste was plenty hoppy but not as bitter as expected. Lots of hoppy citrusy and evergreen flavors with a good showing of malt backbone too. Seems heavy on the late addition finishing hops in the boil kettle.
Mouthfeel is crisp with a solid medium body feel but nothing spectacular. Overall, a solid double IPA but I would love to know how fresh I'm having this. It was new to the store I bought it from but that doesn't mean it was new to the distributor. I'll score it for what it is, but certainly knowing the date of bottling would be better.
