16oz can served in a big snifter. Can says it's canned on 071118, fresh by 091118. You wouldn't see this review if I thought it was adversely affected by the age.

Pours thick and hazy. Looks like a shake. Medium to big head, Lots of carbonation. Smell is fruity and bright. Smells of orange rind.

Taste is similar to the smell -- bright, fruity, orangey -- but with a resin finish.

Mouthfeel is thick and dry. Overall, very good.

Cloudy, dirty, slight lacing. Smell is dank, citrusy/limey. Taste is dank and bitter, citrusy, juicy, but not as bold as the smell makes you think. Mild malt/grain background. Feel is in your face, mouth filling, mouth watering, boozy, smooth. Hubbards does NE style better than any Chicago brewery that I have had.
