12oz bottle best by December 2013, generously given to me by Doug. Poured into an unlabeled snifter today, 10/23/2013. I have had a fresh six-pack of this beer last winter, and enjoyed it but this was before I started writing reviews on BA, so here goes.

Pours a beautiful somewhat hazy straw-orange body, with a substantial and fluffy 2cm white head that almost blew out of the snifter. Good retention, dissipates into a thick lace collar with a bubbly film on top of the brew. Good lacing as it goes down. Great looking IPA.

Smells incredibly floral with a nice bready malt background. So floral with a bit of citrus, balanced out well by the bready caramel malt. Very good, not pungent but very straightforward and nice.

Floral notes throughout, a bit grassy, balanced out by a nice straightforward malt sweetness reminding me of honey and biscuits. Fairly straightforward but enjoyable flavour profile.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied, a bit resinous but not too much so. Dry finish, refreshing and easy to drink. No hint of ABV, no hint of having to work to drink this. Delicious.

Very nice floral IPA, lighter in intensity than Two-Hearted, easier to drink and just as delicious. Definitely worth trying out, and if local, then I'd keep this in the regular rotation.
