16 oz. can poured into a nonic

A- Hazy dark copper-brown. Yeast chunks suspended everywhere. Over carbonated, spilled everywhere with even a pretty easy pour. Head dense and off white. Good retention and good lacing.

S- Dull citrus, mainly earthy/pine. Malt barely shines through.

T- Pine bitterness, mild sweet orange. Spicy rye.

M- Medium light body. Bittersweet. Slightly spicy. Rather clean finish, though.

O- Not bad. Surprised by the high marks on here. Looks pretty unappetizing, too.

Raspberry!
Poured from tap into 16 oz plastic cup. What little head there was dissipated immediately. The top of the beer surface remains embossed with the pour, lending character and richness of body. What head remains is lace in the meniscus.
Darkly translucent. Even bright lights nearby don't shine directly though yet it's a terrific burnished copper color,
As noted before, there's complexity to the flavor, with little malt/breadiness, a bit of resin, and a good dose of dry fruitiness. Somehow I'm picking up raspberry from the taste and scent, I won't complain.
Savannah tells me that BxB has a good distributor, and can be found even at Madison Sq Garden - kudos to them!
Next time I'm in the area, I'll be sure to stop back in!

12oz can served in a tulip. No date that I see. Given to me by @mr-jj.

Pours hazy amber with a medium head and lots of carbonation. Smell is bright and tropical with a dank undertone.

Taste is straw with a bitter finish on the first sip. Bitterness builds, but the tropical/dankness is still a bit lacking on the second. I keep looking for it, but I'm a little disappointed.

Mouthfeel is medium to light. It's not bad, but not exciting.
