Pours an amber gold with zero head. Maybe because this is coming from a crowler? Anyway, it's more malt than hops. It's not bad, but I would like more balance between the malt and hops. Not sure of the kegging date either. I may give it one more try, and maybe it will redeem itself.

32 oz. growler poured into a snifter. Terrible fill. Only about 3/4 full.

Appearance - Deep amber. Big bubbles and not many. Looks kinda flat.

Smell - Malty. Musty pine hop. A little booze.

Taste - Very malty. Much more of a fruity hop flavor. Still a pine hop in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium heavy body. Very low carbonation.

Overall - It's decent, but maybe the quality of the fill hurt this one.
