bb 02/08/14, possibly 8 months old
Cloudy light amber color with egg-white-like head; maybe too much carbonation too. Uninteresting aroma. Smooth mouthfeel, highly carbonated, some malt flavor, some old hops, still some some hop resins but very limited fruitiness; strong bitterness.
Rather boring, definitively past freshness.
