PIcked up a single sampler bottle while in Chambersburg PA at "Good to Go".

First this review is caviated with the fact that the best by date (that I noticed after I began to drink it), was 6 months old. With that said the beer had a stale hop profile. Really can't say too much more except I hope to grab a fresh bottle sometime while in VA or PA, and re-review as other Great Lakes beers I've sampled have been outstanding so far. Not the brewers fault I'm guessing.
