Freshest by 10/12/17....Late in this, but I found it out of state in Ma’s fridge while visiting her for holidays. Left behind from summer, why wouldn’t it still be good?
It’s in a can.
Golden and rich in appearance. White bubbly lace and minimal head. Clear-hazy/ bright.
Smell is honey and light citrus notes of grapefruit/ orange.
Taste is an earthy/ pine/ pineapple/ grapefruit blend of clean DIPA. Melon notes are there after a little while of sipping, although in a bit of a medicinal way.
Feels medium-thick, somewhat dry.
Nice to sip a little.
Bitter and dry, this IS a tasty DIPA from a fine PA brewery. I can’t drink too much of it though. Big and dry.
