January 2009 tasted 04-06 and 09. 04 was amazing hitting its stride with richness, smooth as could be. fine as could be. 05 was a little rougher around the edges but nearly as good, better except for smoothness. more strongly flavored this was at its peak mix of flavor and drinkability. it was in perfect concert. 06 was, while nice, not nearly in the league of the other two. not as smooth as the 04 or as bright as the 05. the 09 was jaw dropingly hoppy. a real barn burner. evident alcohol, hops, and malt rough edges have not been smoothed, but it is a majestic beast all the same.
04 is the grand canyon, worn to a majesty not surpassed. 05 is yellowstone, high peaks, serene beauty, rough edges look like they belong. 09 is a volcano in eruption, violent, awesome, and downright scary.
