12 oz. bottle poured into a pint glass, 2006 edition.
A: Hazy burnt orange color, white head, with some lace.
S: Smells of piney hops, not incredibly robust, but nice nevertheless.
T: Malt upfront, but then it relinquishes its hold and allows the hops to shine through. Delicious grapefruit from the West Coast hops dominates the palate leaving a nice lingering aftertaste.
M: Medium-bodied, with a resiny, oily, almost medicinal character from the hops.
D: About as drinkable as an IPA gets, this beer is easy going down and only leaves you wanting more. I had this beer in November, and it was much more raw, the mild aging seems to have mellowed it out a bit, making it more drinkable. Can't wait for the 2007 editon, a must have this holiday season.
