The bottle I just cranked was from 2013. The color was a dark ruby amber with frothy white head that left some lace. The scent carried floral and citrus notes. The taste was mostly roast and earth with good pine and citrus back drop. The mouthfeel was medium in body with good carbonation. Overall it was good...but not the best BIPA ive had.
