I found this 4 pack when I was down in south Jersey on business. I'm glad I picked it up (although there was no can date! Grrr!) This was one of the tastiest DIPA's out of my home state that I've had. Hope they make their way up to central Jersey soon. Recommended

Overall Impression:
Looked forward to trying this session IPA but was disappointed. I was kind of a murky muddled mess with a powdery aftertaste. I drank this in August of 2018 and the can date said 7-8-18 so I'm assuming that is a born on date? Not sure but I wouldn't buy this beer again.
