This is a 2010 edition. Thank god for islandale.
The beer pours a hazy opaque almost ruby amber straw wih a creamy almost greenish tint but more almond off white head.
Holy smacks this smells really good. Big sweet honey entwined with the vinous green hops, with a malt backbone to bring it all together. This is a very tasty smelling beer.
The taste veers further towards green vines as the hops still play a prominent role even after all these years. Good steadying presence, though, from the malts, coming together and presenting almost with a backdrop of a good cigar. The hops stick with you the most throughout the back, but they're not hte burning sharp hop bitterness so much as kind of a flat, pervasive dull ache. Think more abrasion than laceration. There's almost some hint of just the sweetness of a dark chocolate hidden in there somewhere but that's just silly (but super tasty)...
I'm gonna go back after work monday and hope they have a couple more in stock. 2010s off the shelf for 2 bucks? Can't really complain...
