Purchased at the brewery on the way to The Alchemist approximately two weeks ago. No date on can.
Pours with a slight chill haze, otherwise clear. An inch or more of frothy, thick and white foam covers. Good retention. Lacing begins as it recedes, hanging the drapes as it does so.
Aroma is citrus forward up front with hints of pine. As the beer warms light tropical fruits come through with a bit of sweetness. Somewhat green/herbal.
Taste is a bit thin as there isn't much going on. There is more green/herbal hops finish. Definitely bitter and it builds. Great part of west coast IPAs.
Medium body, maybe more - a bit thick. Medium carbonation. Drying.
The taste lets this beer down after a great pour and aroma. The bitterness is solid and builds. Brings back memories of what an IPA can be. I would have this beer again but this wouldn't be the first beer I grab. Enjoy!

Limited Access is a Double IPA with a smooth taste. The Australian Galaxy hop drives the flavor of this beer, giving it hints of citrus, passionfruit, and tropical fruits.
"Well ya see, Norm, it's like this... A herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Excessive intake of alcohol, as we know, kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. That's why you always feel smarter after a few beers." - Cliff Clavin, of Cheers
