2007- served in a tulip in an unheated office, typing with Bob Cratchit type cut-off gloves. Ahem.
This beer even looks like it uses Cascades.
Smell is floral with wet wheat flour (take that snobs!).
I think from now on I'm going to list mouthfeel before taste because it's always a let down to do this one. Cut and Paste.
Taste is terrific, at first. The more I drink it, the stickier the hop aftertaste becomes. Don't get me wrong, I love the icky sticky, but an IPA can present an abundant amount of hops and still finish clean.
Drinkability took two steps back after about 6 ounces. Beer was certainly well hopped with decent balance, but it stayed with me for the next 2 to 3 hours.
