This beer poured out with about a 2 finger head. Pours a nice Amber color and leaves a good amount of lacing in the glass. After I could not find a bottle date, I was wondering if this may be a little old. I have seen that this beer is quite hoppy, but I'm just not feeling that. A bit bitter, but not overpowering.
With that said, I really do enjoy this beer. Nothing really stood out to me as spectacular, but I would buy it again if I saw it as a decently priced six pack.
