I got this single 12oz brown bottle as part of a build-your-own 6 pack for $9.99 at the Binny's store in Bloomingdale, IL. No freshness date.
The beer poured a hazed golden/apricot color and made a nice 2-finger white head that lasted awhile. Lacing was also decent.
Lots of fruity hop smell in this one - mostly oranges, pineapple, and mango. There is also some bready maltiness underneath the fruit.
Good balance between the citrusy hops and the bready malts. Milder bitterness than you would expect from an IPA, but tasty nonetheless. You can also pick up some alcohol in the finish.
Light to medium bodied with only moderate carbonation.
I can see myself going back for a full 6-pack of these monkeys.
