The bottle has a date of 278, which is October 4th 2012.
A - poured out a clear golden amberish-brown, with a two finger off white head that sticks around and leaves great lacing. Highly carbonated with bubbles streaming off the bottom.
S - Nice dose of hops here with a sweet pine, citrus, grapefruit, berryish, spiciness, bready, and caramel. Not real strong on the nose for this one.
T - The taste is hops forward flavor with citrus rind, lemon peel, sweet malt, spicy, a minty aftertaste of hops. Pleasantly balanced even though the hops are taking over the flavor the sweet malts of caramel and toffee play off of them very well. Hops build on your palate. Can not taste the alcohol but it definitely warms you up.
M - Beautiful full body chewy mouth feel with a nice crispness on the finish; you get the best of both worlds here.
O - This one lives up to its name, it is worth celebrating especially if you like a nice wet hoped Ale. Definitely will be a go to for me every year just to celebrate this brew. I think I found a new favorite late fall/winter beer, Cheers!
