Bottled 06/15/15, reviewing on 11/12/15.
Was really excited to see this come in and equally as disappointed to see the 4 cases we got are 5 months old. IMO, if they going to sell it that old it is fair to review it for what it is.
LOOKS: Orange-amber, aggressive pour into snifter with one finger of off white soapy head. Small bubbles.
AROMA: Floral, citrus, honey, mildly astringent quality. Some tropical and stone fruit qualities.
TASTE: Very mellow. No big hop punch which might be expected considering age. Sweet honey, mild citrus, mild bitterness more in back of sip. Some mild alcohol.
MOUTHFEEL: Creamy, low carbonation.
About what I expected, can't try a fresh one if they send old product. Of course the store should have asked for fresher product.

Cloudy golden appearance, with a small but bubbly head. The hazy nature of this beer makes it look very natural, almost like it just poured out from a gourge in the earth.

Smells of bitter malts, raisins, licorice and general funkiness.

Taste is surprisingly subtle, in a most delightful way. The bitterness from the hops is apparent, yet never overwhelming. A lot of pine and citrus. I am not sure what I was expecting going into this, but definitely not this. Incredibly drinkable, and quite shallow substance-wise. Fine, not great. Probably overpriced at $12 for a 4-pack, but respectable.
