2005 Vintage tasted in August of '06.
A: Burnt orange. 1.5 fingers off-white head. Slightly hazy. Tiny bubbles racing to the top in waves.
S: Piney hops (even after 8 months in the "cellar"). Sweet malt body backing up the pine.
T: Clean tasting. Pine. Lots of malt flavors balancing well: caramel and sweet bread.
M: Just reaching syrupy. Light and bubbly with good carbonation that barely becomes syrupy. Clean and refreshing. Not heavy at all.
D: Refreshing and delicious. Easy to drink/session. Great IPA that is good fresh and keeps well (at least short term, don't have long term experience). I prefer this to SN's IPA because I prefer the American IPA over the English version.
