2011 update, bottled June 2nd, enjoyed July 19th. Aroma and flavor are very heavy in marijuana and onions. Wow. Like REALLY heavy in those to flavors. Quite different than my notes of the 2010 vintage. I can see how this can be a polarizing beer. Good bitterness but not off the charts. Strong malt backbone. Will probably cellar one. Do have a 2010 I will crack open soon for comparison.
Original review, August 5, 2010:
12oz bottled on May 28, 2010. Pours lightly hazy orange/amber/copper with a one finger light tan head, leaves some spots of lacing and holds a light foamy cap. Aroma is heavy earthy, grassy and floral hops, some citrus and pine, light tropical fruits underneath, some caramel and bread. Only moderate strength, however. Does get better as it warms. Huge flavor of resinous and citrus rind hops, some pine, very bitter, a strong caramel malt presence is here, but it is short lived as the finish is an even bigger wave of biting bitterness and a kick of alcohol that only adds to the effect. Excellent. Mouthfeel is full, oily with sharp carbonation. I love ’em bitter and this is one of the best I’ve had yet.
Appearance 4, Smell 4, Taste 4.5, Mouthfeel 3.5, Overall 4.5, Score 4.28

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Bottled 5/24/13 at 45 degrees into imperial pint
Aroma – very deep pine/hemlock aroma
Head large (6.5cm), frothy, off-white, mostly diminishing to a 2 mm layer
Body clear, more amber than orange
Flavor begins with a thick sweet piney taste, very resinous, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate is medium, oily to syrupy, with a light bitter finish
I realize this beer is technically past its prime, but has aged well, becoming a very smooth flavorable ale. I’ll be buying more to cellar.
