No bottling date that I can see.

A: Pours a cloudy straw/orange color. So cloudy it's almost white - looks almost exactly like a witbier. Tall, frothy and effervescent offwhite head. Big island of foam and lots of heavy, continuous lacing everywhere.

S: Oooh nice. Candied oranges and lemons. A little grapefruit thrown in. Spicy resinous pine. Nice hop variety. Maybe some bready malt?

T: Not as huge of a hop bomb as I was expecting from the aroma. Citrusy with grapefruit and orange, but much less so. Lots and lots and lots of spicy, piney hops everywhere. Not overly bitter, there is a substantial bready malt here backing it up. Wave of drying bitterness in the finish, along with sort of a salty, spicy pine kicking around. Hints of grapefruit and more pine in the drying, lingering aftertaste.

M: Somewhat heavy, quite bitter and dry on the back end.

O: Nice balanced but very hoppy at the same time. Big, bold hoppy flavors with a strong enough malt base to balance it out (mostly anyway). Only really get substantial bitterness in the bitter drying finish, the rest of the time it's quite well balanced.
