16 ounce can, 09/06/18 stamped on the bottom. Not sure if it's a best by or a canning on date. Served in a DFH IPA glass, the beer pours a cloudy dark gold color with about an inch off-white head. Head retention and lacing are both pretty good. I like the aroma, the brew smells like tropical fruit, pineapple, oranges, pine and bready malt. Taste is similar to the aroma, but with the addition of some grassiness, orange peel and grapefruit flavors. Nice balance between the fruity flavors and bitterness. This gets better the longer I drink it! Mouthfeel/body is medium, it's a bit slick and easy to drink with a good amount of carbonation. I liked this IPA a lot, thanks to my friend Denis for getting a can of this for me!

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a hazy, dark golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of juicy grapefruit,. Taste is grapefruit, orange peels, juicy, moderate bitterness. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a very refreshing and enjoyable beer.

Comes in a hazy golden orange color with some floaties. A semi-aggressive pour yields a huge rocky, creamy white head. Long-lasting with sheets of lacing.
The smell is really sweet, overripe grapefruit, orange, and lemon. Sweet bready malt with hints of caramel. Catty dankness with pineapple, pine, and mango.
The taste is ruby red grapefruit and pineapple forward, followed by orange pith and lemon peel. A bit of cat pee dankness in this one. Simcoe for days. Hints of mango and papaya. Sweet toasted brown bread malt and caramel. Finishes sticky, resinous, and just slightly bitter. Leans sweet, but the bitterness keeps it in check.
It feels medium, well-carbonated, spritzy and it actually reminds me of juice at times. Extremely citrusy.

I can see why this was a medal winner. This is a really good IPA. Another winner from War Horse!

A nice cloudy golden orange pour with a frothy head. A nice start. Medium hoppy taste with a slight sweetness. Falls a little flat in the end. Not a bad IPA. I wouldn't kick it out of bed.

I read about this beer winning a New York State gold medal for IPA's and I was very skeptical but this beer is legit. Poured at the brewery, awesome atmosphere, great bartenders, a must visit if you're in the fingers lakes area. LT. Dan is a true east coast IPA, moderate hop, minimal malt, clean, crisp. Not a gold medal winner in my book but highly rated.

Bought a 4 pack from Beers of the World on 5/20/17. Served cold in a Duvel tulip/ Hazy peach with a stiff white head. Some lacing and foam residue. Aroma is powdered grapefruit. Taste is candied citrus peel. Mouthfeel is frothy and chewy. This is a solid, staple IPA. Love it and will buy more.
