Best by 10/1/14, so probably bottled around April Fool's Day? Who knows.

Poured from the 12 oz. bottle into an Innis & Gunn English tulip.

a: Nearly clear dark gold with a finger and a half white head which receded to even surface foam and dense lacing.

s: Mild citrus.

t: Moderate citrus to pine resin up front over a medium bready malt base. Bitterness lingers somewhat on the tongue.

m: Light to medium with good body. Considerable carbonatiuon tingle.

o; A good West Coast pale, hoppier than some other American pales, taste actually seems to improve as it goes.

The beer comes in a beautiful hazy dark reddish orange, almost like a pink grapefruit.

In the aroma, there’s lemon and grapefruit peel, floral, hint of white bread, bright spearmint.

On the flavor, grapefruit peel and citrus in the front. A pop of floral in the middle with some pink grapefruit. On the back, the beer is medium plus bitter of pine and grapefruit pith.

This tastes like an updated Sierra Nevada Pale Ale, with more citrus upfront. A well made brew and great for the summer.
