Poured a 2009 version into a standard pint glass. 1.5 finger light tan head. Dark amber red color with some carbonation. Nice lacing on the glass
Smells Malty, with hops in the background.
Tastes hoppy and malty, with citrus flavors. Alcohol is hidden pretty well.
Medium to low carbonation, leaves my mouth dry and clean.
Easy to drink for me, but i love hoppy beers. It goes down easy, and the taste lingers for a while which is nice.
The 2008 version tasted side by side with the 2009 version there is a big difference.
The '08 is hazier than the '09.
the smell has less hops in it, and more malt.
The taste is also less hoppy, and more malty. the -08 has less citrus flavors as well.
