16oz can poured into a Victory Golden Monkey snifter. Canned on 3/21/11.
A: Pours a fairly clear orangey amber color. Off white almost tannish finger and a half head. Comes down fairly quickly but leaves some lacing.
S: It smells SO floral! Pineapple, overripe peach, other citrus fruits, etc. The nose is just amazingly sweet smelling! Really don't get much malts behind it.
T: Wow! This is an amazing beer! You definitely get those floral hops right on the tip of the tongue. It really changes in the middle of the mouth. It almost gets smooth with some malts in the middle. The close is the customary hop astringency and bitterness your expecting. I don't "taste" the booze, but on an empty stomach I feel it a little.
M: Medium bodies but leading to full. The flavors really coat the mouth.
O: Even with some age on this age, its a world class beer that definitely stands up to the likes of Pliny and Alpine stuff. Furious and this are stupendous brews!
