Picked up a 6-pack at a Food City in Galax, VA. Poured straight from bottle dated 9/2/15 into red Solo cup (yeah, I know - on vacation with wife and we didn't pack any glassware...) Nice amber color as it pours, with a decent off-white head that stays around awhile.

Very malty for an IPA, but there is enough resin/citrus tang to it to nicely balance the initial malt sweetness. Medium mouthfeel - actually on the heavy side for an IPA but then again I kind of like it. Slightly bitter finish.

Very drinkable. Would certainly buy it again if I can find it in Pennsylvania.
