2008 CA poured a beautiful orangy brown with a fine, creamy head. Aroma of pine and (cascade?) hops. Flavor is rich with malt and clean hops in the mouth's back. It drinks warm with the malts stronger early but finishes with overwhelming (in a good sense) hoppiness.
In a side note, my father saved some 2007. The family beer drinkers tasted them blind side by side. Almost all of us preferred the 2008. After a year 2007 is still a good beer, just not as "bright" as 2008... and 2007 carried an additional flavor characteristic... something similar to the hoppiness of Fuller's ESB.
