12 oz. bottle. Enjoy by 05/15/13.

Clear and clean medium copper body. Bright orange highlights. Small, gauzy, off-white head. Not much lacing. Fruity malt aromas peppered with spicy, piny hops. A little cookie. Smells of good balance and reminds me of a 90s American IPA (not necessarily a bad thing, mind you).

Toasted malt and herbal hop bitterness up front. Mix of fruit and caramel malt fill in. Slight sweetness. Hop flavors and bitterness pick up toward the finish. Herbal, spicy, and a little piny. Drier in the finish, but with plenty of lingering maltiness. Again, well-balanced, but hoppy enough to merit the IPA badge. Moderate body with a prickly feel.
