Could not find an "enjoy by" date. Poured slowly and carefully into a standard one pint glass.
A: A copper to orange color with an off white head of about half a finger, but leaves a nice lacing.
A: The aroma is a sweet pine with some citrus.
M: Smooth and almost creamy and leaves a slick coating. It has a heavy body.
T: It begins with a sweetness that gives way to pine and resin and then a little orange citrus joins in.
0: Outstanding overall. A very pleasant hops forward taste, but doesn't need to hit you over the head with it. The begining blend of sweet malt and pine and resin is a great start for the transition to the slight orange. The heavy body really works well here, too.
Serving type: bottle

Appearance is a clear yellowish copper color. This offering is slightly effervescent with a finger of fluffy head that seemed to linger forever and left rings of lace behind reminiscent of a nitro-tapped beer. The malt profile seems solid, if not remarkable and the hoppiness is good for a single IPA.
This offering does suffer from an odd trace of booziness which makes it less drinkable than some higher ABV DIPAs that I’ve sampled in the past.
Serving type: on-tap
