2014 version, best by date of 12-31-14. Interesting as I first enjoyed this beer in early December, obviously same bottling run. I found the first beer to be amazing, layers on layers of hop goodness. Just really popped. Today's is obviously aged further.

Still excellent, but lacking that hop pop. I rated this as the earlier tasting of this beer. My advice...look for this early next year and drink it fast!
