12oz brown bottle with no freshness date.
LOOK: Shiny dark brass
SMELL: Toffee, fresh cut grass, herbal, woody hop, ripe apples, floral
TASTE: Smooth, semi-creamy, medium body, malty, light toffee, hop bitterness, thick herbal, woody, toasted grain, dried hay, yeast, ripe pears, faint esters
Very well balanced and pushing the palate a bit to make it interesting enough to want more than one bottle. Comes off to be a good beer from a less talked about style ... at least in the US. Tasty.

poured from 12oz bottle to 20oz 'pint' glass...
a: healthy two-finger off white head. crystal clear amber color.
s: sweet, almost cola like. malty, not much hops, if any. not what an american expects from an ipa. lol!
t: if you bought this expecting big hop bitterness and citrusy flavor you will be sorely disappointed. however, if you bought this expecting a fine example of a british ipa then you will very happy. residual sweetness, caramel, rock candy with an underlying bitterness that you would expect in some of the mildest american ambers. slightly floral hop flavor and aroma. slightly...
m: if you pour it right you will be left with a medium-low carbonated brew. lightly coats the mouth but finishes clean. slight bitterness lingers.
o: i like this! i think it's a great session ale with lots of great flavors that is a nice detour out of the sea of american ipa's that try to out wallop the next. too bad it's only around for a limited time, i would certainly drink another.
