Wow really good stuff! Poured with a thick very long-lasting off-white head, lots of lace and a clear amber color. aroma is fresh hops and malt. Flavor is a wonderful blend of sweet bitter and Tang with resin hop dominating. Body is perfect. Drink drink drink!!!

Bottling code of 13322B1. Translates to a date of November 18, 2013.

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden orange with a white finger width head. Fair retention results in a thin layer of surface suds. Thin and spotty lacing coats the glass with good stick.

Smell - Orange with a strong malt presence that hits on caramel and bready character.

Taste - Follows the nose. Orange-y hop flavor backed by healthy helpings of caramel and slightly grainy bread malt flavors. Malty finish, and it seems to be missing a lot of hop flavor.

Mouthfeel - Medium-bodied with low to moderate carbonation. Smooth and drinkable.

Overall - Eh, wish I knew Avery's bottling code before I bought this. Turns out this one's nearly a year old, and certainly a reason why the hops are so dead and the malts so strong. What's there shows promise. Certainly a candidate for a Re-review, and with a much fresher example.
