4.45/5 rDev +7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Poured out of a 12 oz. bottle (2008 version) into a pint glass.
A nice slighty hazy copper color with about a 1" head. That has gone down to a steady 1/4" head even after about 15 minutes and some lacing is there as well.
A very in your face nose of slightly sweet malt and tons of hops (piney esthers mostly). There is almost a dread dough aspect there as well.
Love the taste! A lot of bitterness on the front end. That tapers off into a balance of nice toasty malt flavors and still tons of hops that are assertive, but not over the top!
A nice mouthfeel as well. Nice carbonation that lasts even as the finish sails on.
The ABV is not bad, so while not a session beer, I could have several. I look forward to this beer every year! Can't wait for the 2009
