Grabbed a sixer for Thanksgiving. Pours from the bottle a mostly clear dark golden color with small white head. Aroma of bready malts, lemon peel, sweet honey, grapefruit. Smells like a malty DIPA. Flavor follows as expected, big bready malts, lemon peels, sweetness, really like a malty DIPA. Slick body, medium high carbonation, big flavor for only 5%. Not bad, but was hoping for a lighter on the malt body and bigger aromatic hop profile.

Poured from a bottle marked best by March 2014 into an Imperial Pint Glass, from a Hopology 6 pack.

This one tastes really good to me. Poured a nice golden iced-tea color with about 1/2" of off-white head. Lots of tiny bubble trails from the bottom of the glass. I smell a good amount of grapefruit and other citrus. The grapefruit isn't as strong in the taste. Slight amount of pine in there. Mouthfeel is great. I wasn't expecting much from this beer, but it has turned out to be quite good.
