No bottling date but I'm assuming fresh.

A: Pours a clear red. Frothy, fizzy tall tan head.

S: Grassy aroma right off the bat with a little bit of graininess.

T: Grassy again and then lots and lots of butter. I just had their EIPA and it tastes basically the same, except this one is slightly less bitter and has no pine aspect. Very buttery.

M: Medium/light bodied.

O: A butter bomb, I tossed it after a few sips. Yuck.
