2 weeks old in the bottle.

It took me a 2 of these before I could place the aroma and flavor. This beer reminds me so much of Port Wipeout that it isn't even funny. Light, smooth, and ultra aromatic. That said, its delicious if you can get it fresh (if you can't, pass and get something else). If you can get it fresh, try it closer to room temp. I tried one ice cold and wasn't impressed. One that had been out of the fridge for a bit was so much more expressive. Glad I picked up some extras to share with friends.

Had on tap. Pours clear, bright yellow in color with 1/2 inch head. Taste is wet hops, big pine, and a nice dose of lemon. Very tasty first brew from this brewery. Has me curious to try other brews from them.

Had on tap. The flagship IPA. Solid all around IPA with a crisp pine and citrus character and a drying finish. Just enough bitterness to bring things into focus.
