2013 release...

A: poured into a snifter to a nice shade of bronze with a two finger dense off white head that retains well and leaves decent lacing
S: smells of toasty and bready malt with a little caramel and a slight pine hop aroma. a little dark fruit as well.
T: taste is toasted malts, spicy hops, a little fruitiness and a slight caramel sweetness. finish is a bittersweet mix of caramel and grapefruit
M: fairly full in the mouth with slightly prickly carbonation and a drying finish
O: Not bad but disappointing for the price point. I'd rather drink an Arrogant Bastard. Decent complexity but it doesn't seem to age well.

I'm shocked by the so-far low score for this beer . I had it on tap immediately after a glass of Sculpin. The smoothness hit me right away. Like liquid butter, yet very flavorful. Fills the mouth with flavor with a nice lingering malty aftertaste. This beer belongs in the upper echelon IMHO.

Cloudy pale orange, nice frothy head that leaves a curtain of lace.

Honey, orange, and caramel the predominant smells I'm getting.

Big caramel malt and honey note with a deep grainy bread note and grapefruit hop kick at the end. A slight warming aftertaste.

Medium carbonation, creamy and slick mouthfeel.

Nicely done although I think I like the original just as well (and the bottle is less expensive).
