The label has a best by of July 2011.

Poured into my trusty tulip.

A: Pours a deep brown with burnt Autumn orange tints. The thin light tan head measures one finger.

S: Citrus and piney hops are first to hit the nose. There's some roasted caramel malt in there as well.

T: Hoppy, malty, piney, somewhat nutty, with a finish that starts off tasting like grapefruit but turns into an off-putting orange peel taste.

M: Body is on the thin side with moderate carbonation. Somewhat dry and leaves a resin feeling.

O: Not the best I've had for this style but I wouldn't refuse it if offered. Besides that orange peel finish, it's not too bad. I should probably have a fresh bottle and revisit the review.
