22oz bottle poured into a large mug. 30407A0051958 might be the code on the bottom. Hard to say, because they're hard to read.

Pours slightly hazy, bronze/golden with a medium sized pale head that sort of slumps into lumpy piles. Smell is hay, slight onion, some yeast.

Taste is on the bitter end of a pale ale, lacks some of the malty prominence I would normally expect. That's not bad -- just different. More crisp, less soft. Lighter and bitterer.

Mouthfeel is thick, chewy. Overall, pretty good.

Picked up in mid-August from Total Wine for $6.99. Can't find a freshness date but its availablity is April-May. Received at TW on 8/16/14.

Beer poured orange with a nice white head that is handing around.

Nose is floral, fruity, and citrusy.

Taste has a touch of floral, peach, and orange up front and a lot of grapefruit rind and pine at the end.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied and decently carbonated.

Overall this is an interesting spin on the APA style. A lot of hop profiles going on. Drinks more like an IPA as i am not getting that bready malt base i would expect from the style.
